not voted, because there are people out there who have no taste for real music and would consider this a bargain

Thanks

Ok - Flying against popular opinion - I think James Blunt is one of this country's finest songwriters and if you spend the time listening to his albums it is hard to deny - GREAT PRICE TOO - HOT HOT:thumbsup:

I'd rather remove my eardrums with a corkscrew than listen to this guy singing.

Each to there own I suppose, but you can't please everybody!!

I'm with you - beauty is in the ear of the beholder

i love the lyrics to 'you're beautiful' about some chick he was checking out on the underground

You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'll never be with you.

Yeah, she caught my eye,
As we walked on by.
She could see from my face that I was,
Flying high, [ - video/radio edited version]
And I don't think that I'll see her again,
But we shared a moment that will last till the end.

Like something written by a 10 year old!

Ha well least you can admit it (be prepared to be bullied by the cavemen), I like a couple but never heard the rest of his songs. Ive ordered it for the mrs anyway, I might just have to have a listen then on your opinion!! :thumbsup:

Not a big fan of Jim myself, but all "cheese" doesn't necessarily equal bad. Some cheese is good, its just elitists and music snobs think only music that takes itself incredibly seriously is "good". Sometimes its nice to have a sense of humour about music, and understand that musical creations can be self-aware and humorous without being "bad". Music that makes people feel good could be rated more highly than high brow music, simply because it taps into something in the human psyche beyond more complex or involved songs, hence its popularity. With regard to the lyrics, yes they're simple, but complex doesnt necessarily mean good either - sometimes people like simplicity as a way to relate to a song. Music is just as subjective as any other art form.

For example, "Love Me Tender" is incredibly simple and basic, and if you didn't have Elvis you wouldnt have had the knock on effect of The Beatles, or Oasis, or most of the bands today... and my god Elvis was cheesy (in a good way). Without him we'd still be listening to Glenn Miller! Of course Jim's music isnt particularly humorous or self-aware, but I'm making a point about "cheese" in particular, and how it shouldnt be dismissed as "bad" because its popular. Stilton anyone? ;-)

Well, I think it's a cracking album. Not a bad track on it. I hope people are voting hot / cold on price and not on musical taste.

No Bravery - James Blunt

There are children standing here,
Arms outstretched into the sky,
Tears drying on their face.
He has been here.
Brothers lie in shallow graves.
Fathers lost without a trace.
A nation blind to their disgrace,
Since he's been here.

And I see no bravery,
No bravery in your eyes anymore.
Only sadness.

~~~~~~~

Doesn't seem very funny to me. I'll grant you, a great deal of his stuff is chart-friendly dross, but to label all his work a joke is distinctly unfair as I think the song I quoted attests.

is this the one with the line 'a semi by the sea'?

Dentists swear by James Blunt. They tell their patients .. its either a local anaesthetic with this huge hypodermic ... or .... Back To Bedlam aurally ... they ALWAYS go for the injection :thumbsup:

Agree with you to a certain extent there, poetic lyrics are not the be all and end all, some of my favourite songs are simple and unpretentious. I was really reacting to what somebody said about James Blunt being one of the UK's finest songwriters, which is in my opinion, totally absurd.

I like a bit of cheese too, but James Blunt hasn't got any redeeming features as a 'musician' for me, he sounds like a whining animal that I want to put out of it's misery!

Great album.. ! Less than a lunch at work.. Hot !

Good point.

However, I do find it interesting that people hate Blunt so much, when at least he wrote his songs and plays an instrument. Compare that to the X factor finalists who can't write songs or play any instruments at all, yet they command such public adoration! Seems absurd to me that Blunt gets such venom thrown his way when these karaoke singers seem to be invincible for their three months of fame before they go back to their day jobs.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH never

Not mad keen on him.
A woman once said to me that he has a voice like a squawking chicken!
Heat added on price

Well this is hot from me... I love James Blunt's music and voice... each to their own. :-)

people just get on the band wagon with certain singers/groups they just want to think I'm so cool i only listen to cool bands etc
I like him he can sing live and play a guitar voted hot from me

Thousands of people seem to go crazy for X factor "stars" and they cant play an instrument or write a song - seems they are even more easily impressed! :thumbsup:

Music is a personal choice - if you like it - good for you - if you don't - fine. Variety and differing opinions make the world go round -:whistling:
