james blunt - familiar tunes but still worth a listen

i didn't bother to google james blunt but i heard he is an ex-army.

his music, tho' not totally original and fresh, has plenty of infectious hooks. simply and effective. it doesn't have the melancholia and darkness of damien rice; it is sunnier and more poppish.

the highlight of the cd is the hit single you're beautiful. the 1st five songs are gems but the rest of the secondhalf are fillers.

oh, don't ask me about the recording. with music this good, i don't normally care about the recording :-)
