5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 22 Oct 2008
By Ciaran
Format:Audio CD
Morrison's opening single The Only Night is an unusually upbeat pop record for the album, setting the mood for a mixed bag of gems that throw you a variety of moods from happiness to sorrow.

The next two singles, Save Yourself and You Make It Real have James Morrison written all over them.. in a good way. There's a part of me that feels You Make It Real's chorus resembles a more down beat version Simply Red's stars, if only for a second or two. You Make It Real still manages to be an utterly original and sensual melody, paving the way for a variety of even more appealing single releases.

The dramatic, melancholy collaboration with Nelly Furtado might remind you of Snow Patrol and Martha Wainwright's brilliant Set The Fire To The Third Bar and Precious Love puts Morrison's vocals to an emotional high as he wails powerfully through the song's smooth and catchy chorus.

If you were a fan of Morrison's first album, Undiscovered, you cannot afford to miss out on songs for you, truths for me. James' new album is everything it's first had.. and more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyable second album 12 Jan 2009
Format:Audio CD
James Morrison wasn't an artist I particularly expected to like, but it just goes to show that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover. I bought James' first album when it was almost scandalously reduced - almost for next to nothing - and I had literally nothing except pennies to lose in an amazon sale. Not expecting much, I was astonished by the quality, emotion and soul of the debut and just how much I enjoyed it. With a voice like a cross between Ray LaMontagne and Stevie Wonder (check his vocals out at the end of 'Fix The World Up For You') and the knack for writing emotive, catchy music, I'm delighted to say that this guy is the real deal and James' second album is equally as good as his first.

I'm not a huge fan of contemporary pop music - you know, the sort of songs which make it big in the singles charts these days - but this is such enjoyable, life-affirming music, it combines just the right elements of speaking to both the mind and heart and yet there are a handful of songs on this album which, if promoted well, could provoke hundreds of thousands of downloads/single sales from people of all ages. This is an album full of well-written, beautifully performed and sumptuously (but not over) produced compositions, shamelessly commercial and yet not cynically so. James' genuine, believable delivery, which is never over-cooked, is possibly the key to the appeal of the music.

My favourite tracks on this album are the classy, toe-tapping, Motown-lite 'Nothing Ever Hurt Like You', the genuinely emotional 'You Make It Real', the angst-ridden break-up song, 'If You Don't Wanna Love Me', and the upbeat, soulful 'Precious Love'. The whole album is full of really enjoyable songs, though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even Better Than His Debut Album! 30 Sep 2008
Format:Audio CD
If you thought this fella's debut album was good, wait until you hear this! For me this album is a big improvement on his first album. Every song on this album is excellent, apart from 'Dream On Hayley' which doesn't do anything for me. Heck 11 out of 12 good songs ain't bad! All the other songs are worthy of being released as singles.

5.0 out of 5 stars A winner! 14 Dec 2008
Format:Audio CD
Bought this on the strength of You Make it Real and Broken Strings. Had bought Undiscovered and, aside from a handful of tracks, it didn't really stick with me. But this is a belter. Every track has a great melody that has grabbed me immediately, and his voice sounds great and is so suited to the songs. Have been playing it almost non-stop since I got it and i'll be putting it in a few stockings this christmas!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Cracker ! 29 Sep 2008
Format:Audio CD
The usual problem with a brilliant first album is following it up with something that comes remotely close. Well, this one does more than that - I've not played it to death yet, but it could be even better that his debut ! Not heard a bad track yet, and this, like the debut, keeps popping up new favourites on each listen. The opener grabs you straight away, as does the duet with Nelly Furtado.
Knockout !

4.0 out of 5 stars Music to chill out with! 20 April 2009
Format:Audio CD
I really enjoyed listening to this CD as it made me feel very relaxed and chilled out. I think his voice is amazing and some of the songs are very well written. This is a great collection of songs to listen to if you are in a mellow mood. Very relaxing!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Album 17 April 2009
Format:Audio CD
I had heard a couple of the tracks of this album before and liked what i heard so decided to buy.....a very wise move! The album is varied in musical taste, and i would advise that it is better listened to when you are feeling a little sad about life, it's lyrics become even more potent then!
I have no regrets in buying it at all and would happily recommend it to anyone who has a similar taste in music!

5.0 out of 5 stars James at his Best 5 April 2009
Format:MP3 Download
This album has tracks to suit every mood. James is a great Balladier and there are tracks here which haven't been released as singles which are great. I especially like the track Nothing Ever Hurt Like You and Save Yourself. This album does not get boring with replays but more interesting. The lyrics express true emotion and not just a pretty rhyme. If you are not already a Morrison fan, then this is the album to convert you! It did me.
