Biography

When he was 18 years old, Sam Smith wrote his first truthful song, a flashbulb moment for the brilliant blue-eyed soul singer. Three years later and the song has long since been discarded as a naive folly. Like all singer songwriters that are rich in emotion, knee-deep in their own small personal complications and dependent on their precociously youthful talent to engage with the world, Sam ...

I first heard Sam Smith by accident when I changed channels and Later with Jools Holland was still on. I thought his voice was incredible and I wanted to hear more, (he was singing 'Stay With Me). The next time I saw him was on The Graham Norton Show when he sang his second single, 'I'm Not the Only One'. I was very impressed and decided to buy his album. I looked on Amazon and saw the CD's, but then I noticed that I could get it on vinyl, which I prefer. Also, if I bought it on vinyl, it said that I would receive a free MP3 version. The album was delivered quickly and packaged well. I looked on my computer and the MP3 version was already there.
I would recommend 'In The Lonely Hour' to anybody who appreciates a rare talent like Sam Smith, one of the best voices I have heard in many years and a refreshing change from all the tuneless songs that can be heard on the radio at any time of day.

This is probably the best album I have bought since 21 (Adele) this man's music is mesmerising. I love the whole album, each and every song is unique. His voice has such a fantastic range and I can't stop playing In The Lonely Hour. It's a truly wonderful album from a gifted artist.

I will be honest and say that i don't always give great reviews and some of my opinions are exactly what i think and am blunt in saying it is either total rubbish or absolutely brilliant.
This album by Sam Smith is in my mind a fantastic album and has a great feel to every song.
This is the sort of album i could put on in the car and go through every track without skipping any out.
My only worry for Sam Smith is could he be just a one album wonder as i hope not unlike James Blunt.
Anyway a really good album in this sphere and one of the best of the year so far
thoroughly enjoyed listening to it!!

I feel as if I should review this album because of how wrong I was about Sam Smith.
After hearing Money on my Mind, I felt that Sam would be the type of artist that I would love and he would go places. Previously featuring on tracks such as Latch with Disclosure. He seemed to be going in the music route that I enjoyed. However, he then released Stay With Me, which I enjoyed and could sing along to but it wasn't really my cup of tea as far as music genre goes. I then enjoyed his next single I'm Not The Only One but again it wasn't my cup of tea. So I decided to give the album a pass. However, a few months ago, a friend of mine purchased the album and recommended it to me a lot so I decided to listen and I was blown away. A lot of the songs are quite slow and intimate songs that clearly showcase Sam's emotions and some of the songs do get me quite emotional. For example, Lay Me Down is a song about Sam's grandmother passing away (I believe) which is heart breaking but it is also a beautiful song which showcases Sam's powerful voice.
After hearing the album, I decided to join my friend for Sam's 'In The Lonely Hour Tour' next year in Spring (may I add that he had to create a whole new tour because his one in October this year sold out so fast!) I am very excited to see Sam's performance. Favourites on the album are Restart and Like I Can (which I may add are more.. upbeat songs.) and Lay Me Down which is a more slow song. But they are all beautiful.

It's so refreshing to hear a true male vocalist rather than the usual pop voices that are around today. Sam is a talented singer, versatile and can easily slip into different genres like all the great male vocalists can. But his songwriting skills are also impressive for someone so young.

Highlight of the album is the soulful, pain infused Stay With Me - it's one of those songs where you stop whatever you are doing to listen to it. Also Restart harks back to the funky R&B dance pop of the 80s, a real treat for the summer!

On a side note, not great from Amazon - only 10 tracks are available on the cloud. Not impressed!

I pre ordered this CD back in Feb.......Received it today and its straight on! Love it......Mine has 14 tracks on the CD and on the cloud player so not sure what the other reviewer is referring too....Love Sam Smith, he is so refreshing, sings from the heart.....A truly lovely album. Have tickets to see him at the end of the year in Birmingham. Hope that comes around quicker than the album release has!
