I must say, I heard James playing live on Dermot O Leary and being heavily pushed by Jo Whiley and I really liked his stripped down sound. However this album is terrible. Its a one trick pony and the songs all sound far "too samey" for my liking. I would strongly suggest you carefully listen to this before buying rather than judging it as I did on the Radio live sessions which were excellent. Sorry James, its a miss this time around.
