I bought this great CD with the intention of loading it into my iPod. However, I discovered that Sony has installed a tiny player program that without my permission installs with the CD, into my computer bypassing iTunes and preventing me from copying it. Amazon needs to tell you what Sony is up to so you can choose whether to purchase a Sony CD online.

Amos Lee's Blue Note debut is a fantastically beautiful album. While in places (and not even specific places) the album is slightly samey and bland, there are never HUGE missteppings and Lee has a gravelly soulful voice that is smooth and gruff at the same time. The man has SOUL, and writes pretty lyrics that can be either happy go lucky, political or sad. A simple album, there is little to say except that I would highly recommend it to fans of newcomers James Morrison or Paolo Nutini.
What I wouldn't recommend is Lee's sophomore, "Supply and Demand", a much lesser effort. Stick with the self-titled debut, and Lee will surely turn you into a fan.

I saw Amos Lee open for Norah Jones - had never heard of him before and was just blown away by his lyrics and his "easy, laid back" style! I bought his EP after the show and have been eagerly awaiting the release of this CD. Although if you own the EP some of those songs are included here (different versions)this CD is worth the SMALL amount of money it costs! Call him a male Norah Jones if you've never heard of him before - pure voice, great music for a Sunday afternoon. I hope that this is just the beginning of a long road for Amos Lee!
