Product Description

Product Description

Momentum is Jamie Cullum's sixth studio album, his first through Island Records. Jamie approached this record in a completely different way to his previous LPs, for the first time using DIY home demos as a blueprint for the majority of its tracks… and for a while, using everything from iPhone apps, charity shop keyboards and cassette recorders as his "go-to" instruments during the process. 

The album was produced in part by Jim Abbiss (Artic Monkeys, Adele) and Dan The Automator (Kasabian, DJ Shadow) and includes the tracks "Sad, Sad World", which began life on a train journey into London and "You’re Not The Only One", a song written in response to being a judge on Sky One’s reality show Must Be The Music alongside Dizzee Rascal as well as the first single "Everything You Didn’t Do".

Finally I got some time to listen more closely to Jamie Cullum's latest record: Momentum
Where almost all artists claim their last record is surely their best, Jamie would arguably have a point in doing so.
Love it or hate it, Momentum is a near perfect pop record. So fans of his more jazzy earlier records should maybe look elsewhere.
What Jamie does better each record is to load each song with strong hooks and memorable choruses. Each track could be a highlight if there would be only weaker songs on the album too. In fact there is one: "Love for sale" misses a strong melody and is not a very successfull attempt at doing rap I believe.
What stays on each album is Jamie's fantastic loose style of singing, and the wonderful organ and piano solo's on most songs (like the squeeking organ on "The Same Things", or the delicate tingling on "Pure Imagination" and "Sad Sad World").
The songs "The same things", "Anyway" (with an irresistable stumbling rhythm), "Everything you didn't do" and "When I get famous" are very catchy, while "Edge of Something" and the album closer "You're not the only one" have a more fully orchestrated sound. "You're not the only one" with its triumphant organ melody wouldn't even be out of place on a Coldplay record...
If I would have to mention one real highlight, then it would be "Pure Imagination" for me. During the piano solo I get a feel of the paradise Jamie is singing about. That's really as beautiful as music can get!

I can understand Jamie Cullum wanting to get away from his popular image and break new ground, but really, some of the songs on this album are mediocre to say the least and there is little variation in pace or volume. He can do (and has done) so much better!

Initial impression was of an underwhelming disk. We're big fans of Jamie and love his last album Pursuit.
However on subsequent plays its beginning to sound more interesting. Goodness knows what style to call this, Jazz it aint.
He does seem to have left his Jazz roots behind, which is a shame. However there is some good stuff going on here.

Sadly for me this seems the weakest of Jamie's recordings so far. I have been a huge fan, seen him many times in concert, loved all his cd's - so this is not an anti-Jamie review! (Maybe I have moved on....his radio show led me to find Kurt Elling and his incredible singing is simply another dimension to this.)

About the cd: Overall i would describe the cd as fun but, at least to my ear, quite predictable. A lot of tracks sound the same and seem like variations on a theme from one or two tracks on The Pursuit album. Even his piano/keyboard playing seems less than inspiring. I guess I would have liked something more developed from the jazz point of view and instead, it seems, he has gone down the pop singer-songwriter route. He has proved he can be a great songwriter (Gran Torino, All At Sea, Grace is Gone etc) but i'm not so convinced by this selection. His songs on here are built on incessantly repeating hook lines (either lyric hooks (usually the song title), vocal hooks, rhythmic hooks or piano hooks). These give an easy way in but leave little room for development and grated on me. I was getting rather bored with some repetitive backing vocals even on my first run through of the disk.
I thought the rap section in Love For Sale was an attempt to appear cool and reach out for another younger audience. Seemed pointless to me.

Oh well.....still a decent listen but left me wanting so much more.

Pity, I was looking forward to it! I am sure many will really like it but this is not for someone wanting a less pop approach.

...forget the fancy reviews, the critiques that disappear up the you know wheres. Yes, there is less jazz than usual on here, but many tracks with great catchy, non-cliched melodies and hooks. Jamie's changed lanes but still accelerating toward a most endearing artiste. Excellent thank you.

I ordered this after listening to Jamie Cullum at Abbey Road Studio sessions on YouTube. The sound on the album compared to the studio sessions is a bit dissapointing so I continue to listen to the YouTube sessions!

I own, and often play, all of Cullum's albums as well as the DVD of his Blenheim gig.
For me this goes to the bottom of the list.
A huge disappointment.
I will play 'Pure Imagination' and maybe 'Get A Hold of Yourself'
but none of the other tracks.
'Love for Sale' is a misconceived travesty of the Great American Songbook.
The cover photo is a clever concept -- even if the lipstick is a bit too obvious.
