2.0 out of 5 stars over-rated, 21 Jun 2005
Though i can see why so many people are attracted to this album, the fact that many people have labled it as "beautiful" and "touching" is laughable. Though i agree there is many a catch pop song on this album, the lyrics tend to be poor and amateur......"your beautiful"?! Damien rice can get away with repeating soppy lyrics, but unfortunately, James Blunt makes them sound just as tacky as they are
If you want a really decent folk-ish album, try bright eyes or damien rice....leave this drivel out
