To be honest I couldn’t get all that into Mr. Blake’s older stuff; though his melodies were occasionally interesting, his production was just a step too close to Burial for comfort. It seems like he’s finally accepted the fact that he’s a soul singer. Most of the songs on this album repeat one or two melodies, while the synths, harmonies and the rest of the production seem to play around those melodies; rather than have a backing band with the singer on top, James Blake is essentially looking at his own melodies as someone remixing something would. I fucking love it.
