james blake, at 23, has an uncanny understanding of musical composition as well as a thirst for going out there with a sound that is so new, so accomplished and so audacious, that it brings tears to your eyes.
this is new generation ("nouvelle vague", they would say in france) but it's not pop, not screaming metallica, not empty.....this is neo-classical for a listenership that is from 15 to 95.
above all, it drips with esoteric creativeness and a devil-may-care attitude (i know i can make music and i do not care if it may not be mainstream)....by jove, mainstream it is not.
at 67 i may not be around to see this man's musical career fully blossoming...pity.
