Product Description

Amazon.ca

As a piece of propaganda, James Blunt’s album Back to Bedlam does more for changing the face of the British Army than a series of television adverts ever could. Swapping a rifle for a guitar, the former cavalryman’s ballad-heavy debut is a clearly aiming to win the battle for the public’s hearts and minds. The U.K. success of singles like "You’re Beautiful" and "No Bravery" (inspired by his time stationed in Bosnia) are both heartfelt and sensitive, the latter packing an additional emotional punch beyond the typical lovelorn ballads of his contemporaries like Damien Rice. But Blunt also sings with conviction about matters of the heart, and that’s the territory that most of Back to Bedlam visits, with songs of loss like "Goodbye My Lover", "So Long Jimmy" and "Billy". And throughout, the arrangements remain understated yet effective, thanks to the input of such heavyweight producers and songwriters like Linda Perry and Guy Chambers. All of which prove that there’s a lot of depth to this modern, musical hero. --Robert Burrow

3.0 out of 5 stars Better live than on this recording... Dec 6 2005
Format:Audio CD
I saw him on SNL a few days ago and bought this CD. I really like the CD, but my god is it ever over-produced!! THe appeal for me was the aching and emotion in his voice. That apparently was tossed out the window to make pop songs on this recording. Now, i do enjoy the recording..but the songs he did on SNL were far superior to these versions on here. Since we no longer have Jeff Buckley, hopefully this artist will pick up from where Jeff left off. Mr Blunts voice is very similar to the Adam Levine of Maroon 5...but not as much live...go figure?! Discovered by Linda Perry of Four Non Blondes fame. One thing i did not like was the blatant chord progression / instrumentation on "So Long Jimmy"...which is actually the Doors "Riders on the Storm". Sad but true. (I love the Doors!).
Still, one of the better performances i have heard in some time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Near-perfect! June 3 2006
Format:Audio CD
There's a reason for Blunt's sudden rise to fame -- with a great, unique vocal, passionate delivery, well-written songs and lovely, easy melodies, this album offers a lot that's different from over-produced ubiquitous radio hits. With a complete, strong track list, it's difficult to imagine that this album wouldn't be a hit. Blunt has a few rocky missteps (like the bouncy 'So Long Jimmy', the album's weakest track) and Linda Perry's influence turns this album more ordinary and run-of-the-mill than it would have been if overseen by someone else. Still, here's hoping that Blunt's mix of folk, rock, pop and stunning balladry will spark a trend in the top 40, which could really use some renovations!

5.0 out of 5 stars His songs make my heart hurt... April 2 2006
By boogs
Format:Audio CD
I haven't been this enthusiastic about a recording artist in a very long time. James Blunt's haunting, angelic voice is a refreshing change to the "noise" I've been hearing on the radio lately. Every single track on the CD is wonderful. I wait patiently for his next CD.

Format:Audio CD
This CD is AMAZING.Every song is fantastic,the song 'Billy' has a little Beatles influence I think,'No Bravery' is filled with heartfelt emotion and what can I say more about 'You're Beautiful'...yes you are James..yes you are

5.0 out of 5 stars James Blunt - Great Singer/Songwriter Nov. 26 2005
Format:Audio CD
This CD is amazing. James Blunt is a very talent new artist. If you don't buy this, you'll be missing out.
My favorites "You're Beautiful", "Goodbye Lover", "Wisemen" and "Tears and Rain" are worth the entire price of the CD.
Get it now!
