In 2005, James Blunt was everybody's favorite overnight success story. In 2007, he's the guy who's making rock meaningful again. All the Lost Souls,, the sophomore effort from the Brit responsible for restoring the seriousness of "beautiful" as a compliment, brims with big build-ups, epic-sounding ballads, and lyrics to lose yourself in. The vibe, laid out neatly on first single and opening track "1973," is clear-eyed and heavy-hearted; in anybody over 35, it'll produce nostalgia tempered by hopefulness--here's a set that suggests rock has got its head screwed on straight again, that the path to real feelings need not necessarily be led by Norah Jones. In anybody younger, it'll cause the unsinkable suspicion that a lot of modern balladeers should be digging deeper. But in both cases it will satisfy. Compared with David Gray and Damien Rice last time out, this time Blunt seems to owe a debt to Barry Gibb--his voice quavers as sweetly and with the same delicate reach. Stand-outs on a brief but dud-less set include "I Really Want You," in which the sound of Blunt's breaking heart is set sparely and elegantly to something approximating the chirp of a cricket, the poignant and desperate "Give Me Some Love", and the VH-1 ready "Same Mistakes." -Tammy La Gorce

Format: Audio CD
The first time I heard anything off this CD was two months ago when I was sitting in a pub on Belmont Street in Aberdeen, Scotland and the video for '1973' came on the video jukebox. I immediately took a liking to the song, it's a pleasant, up-tempo, catchy number inspired by the good times James had in clubs on the island of Ibiza, which is pretty much considered the party capital of the world. A lot of music critics have not been kind to James since his CD debut 3 years ago with many saying he should never be allowed to live down 'You're Beautiful' as one of the sappiest and most annoying songs of all time. To boot, his name has now become cockney rhyming slang for a very unpleasant insult. Then why has his debut CD sold over 11 million copies? It's obviously not just daft housewives buying them up. If James Blunt is guilty of anything, it's becoming too successful and too omnipresent. But what new artist would say no to all of that?
The majority of the songs on this CD are more melancholy and introspective than what was on his first album but there are some lighter moments with 'Annie' and 'I'll Take Everything', both are great songs. The lyrics to 'One Of The Brightest Stars' takes a look at fame and how fleeting it can be and 'Carry You Home' is the companion song to 'Goodbye My Lover', from his debut CD, with 'Carry' being equally as touching and moving as it's predecessor.
You would have to be a contestant on 'Survivor Mars' to not know what James Blunt sounds like so it's safe to say you already like him or you don't'. This album is no great departure from past songs but it is a really good album. For any musician/singer/songwriter, the most important thing usually is how their music has reached out and touched people.

Continuing in the winning tradition of BTB, this album has some great moments, and the problems I have with it are sparse. You can tell that some of the beats are consistent with the first album (I hope this changes when he comes out with another album), which especially comes through in the 5th track, "Carry You Home." My favourite songs on the album would be "Same Mistake," "1973" and "Shine On," while the only track which was a little disappointing was the 7th track, "I really want you." A great buy with catchy tunes. There is nothing lost in this second soulful album.

I think James has done a wonderful job with ATLS. It does show growth as a musician and a songwriter.

Mind you...It'll take a little while for me to get used to NOT having to sob uncontrollably during each song as B2B did and I believe that's the only real thing that has been omitted here. This is probably the reason why some are suggesting that it doesn't have the emotional "oomph" that B2B does but that doesn't make ATLS any less passionate.

I love the recognizable "Beatlesque" sound that some have noticed. IMHO, James Blunt is the next John Lennon. :)

I have listened to this album a couple of times now and find it to be an extremely enjoyable listen. If I had not heard the first album I would probably be enjoying it more. I find the musical style, rhythms and lyrics to be very reminiscent of the debut CD and wondered a couple of times if I were listening to the same songs. Mr. Blunt needs to change up his style just a little, perhaps getting a little input from other writers in order to break out of the box he has built for himself. What he does is great, he just needs to expand his milieu.

The cons first: the album is too short. I'd have settled for twenty more minutes of this stuff. The pros: Expert recording from a great artist who has worked to seamlessly fuse the sounds from the seventies and eighties into his own. "All The Lost Souls" is a wonderful journey by a great artist--James Blunt. If you don't know this guy's music, get started now. Would also recommend any album by "Nickleback" or anything by "Maroon 5", especially the "Songs About Jane" album. Great stuff, all.

James Blunt is a Brilliant talented musician. I thought gone was the day of fans loving entire albums (CD's now). Well James Blunt's CD's "All the Lost Souls" and "Back to Bedlam" Do just that. I have a very hard time just picking 3 to 4 songs when making my playlists. His music just goes to the pit of your gut and stays with you forever. Of course another musician from the UK...Just Love em! Cheers! :)
