  Listen with your heart not just your ears...

I loved back to bedlam and this album just amplifies my feelings, love & appreciation for James Blunt, he has a unique voice which I feel echoes perfectly along with the melodies, if you can listen with your heart and not just your ears then this album is for you, Shine on is awesome! but then again....they all are :)

Im appalled at some of the reviews for this album.

Music is about emotions, it is not about writing a little jingle that will be catchy for 5 minutes. Yes there are some sad songs on the album, that may be 'depressing'. But that is exactly what makes this album brilliant, it has an ability to move you.

I personally wasnt not a huge fan of his first album, however this album really caught my attention. The singles 1973, same mistake and carry you home are great. Same mistake possibly being the highlight of the album.

1973 (8/10)
One of the brightest stars (6/10)
I'll take everything (6/10)
Same mistake (10/10)
Carry you home (9/10)
Give me some love (9/10)
I really want you (7/10)
Shine on (8/10) starts slow but builds up
Annie (9/10)
I can't hear the music (9/10)

All in all this album is definately worth a listen, but if you are hoping for catchy jingles as opposed to a moving and uplifting album, you might want to look else where.

  'an album to relax with'

| | See all rbmusicman's reviews (895)

I did enjoy much of the 'back to bedlam' album, however i have to say i enjoyed 'all the lost souls' more.
Why ? It's easy listening, you can just sit back and relax with this one, songs like '73' 'i really want you' and 'carry you home' great listening, the latter being the number that drew me to this 'cd'
Artist's like 'james blunt' are what encourage me to keep buying much of the music being released in this decade.
Keep doing this quality of music 'james' and i'll keep buying.

  Feel...

Do you like feeling just annoyed and fed up? Buy this. Its nearly as depressing as the first album. Complete waste of money and plastic.

  Simply and utterly superb

| | See all scarletjones's reviews (1)

Bought this album at the end of March and it's hardly been out of my CD player since. It's up there with Hopes and Fears (Keane) and X & Y (Coldplay). Roll on the next one, James!

  Much the same...

| | See all RightAsRain's reviews (5)

If you enjoyed his first album, then you will love this one too!
The style is much the same, but this album has some very catchy lyrics with all the famous Blunt soul and feeling :-)

  fine album

The first Album didn't really grab me, but this one does.

Great tracks from start to finish, great talent.

Loved it, buy it.

  Superb second album, though a bit short

| | See all 205Mi16's reviews (2)

Loved the first album, and the second doesn't disappoint. A little bit short again, but very well composed aside from that. For those saying its "depressing", that's not really what this type of music is about, you'll appreciate it as you get older.
