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.
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
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.
