As one reviewer has written, is it James Blunt's fault his music has been so overplayed? The guy scoring him as a one clearly doesn't like his music and therefore adds no value to this section, just simply slates him. For what it's worth, the guy is an amazing singer with a very unique voice and a vocal range beyond most dross on the radio. 1973 is another strong song and i think the album will be another bestseller. I'd like to see a little more variation on his tones, very melancholy, which i like but even REM did some real "dance around" tunes and i hope the album has some upbeat elements. If you've not bought Back to Bedlam yet, you need to. Most of those who say he's rubbish are only saying it to stand out as they have no personality themselves with which to stand out by!
