3.0 out of 5 stars Sounds of a Lazy Sunday Afternoon, 28 Sep 2007
This review is from: All The Lost Souls (Audio CD)
On first hearing the single I wasn't taken by it. I hadn't heard it properly, 1973 seemed a little odd.

This is mainly because it's a step forwards for James Blunt, a wonderfully groovy little melody that I eventually found myself playing Air-Bass and having a damn good time to when we eventually got the albumn.

The thing with this albumn is that it has great words if you go and read them from the lyrics book. It has brilliant little melodies and backing sounds if you listen for them. But all in all the albumn didn't really capture me. It wasn't something that I want to listen to for the sake of listening to music as entertainment, except now for 1973 that I can't get out of my head.

In my honest opinion I find it's the kind of albumn you want to read a good book to when you get a moment off. Something lovely and warming to have in the background that almost calms your emotions so that you can enjoy another past-time. The sounds of a Lazy Sunday Afternoon indeed, don't let this deter you either, there's something great about that kind of an albumn, but it won't be to everyones tastes.

All in all, it's a greater work of art than most might achieve, yet it's sadly not a classic either.

Buy Back to Bedlam if you want to know what the James Blunt craze is all about, that was truly a great albumn...

I'd reccommend this Albumn if you're a fan of James and his voice. In all honesty I nearly came to this record with a negative opinion of it before hearing it, thanks to the reviews I'd read so far. Then I reset my perception and I have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

My advice to you dear reader?

Make up your own mind.
