james blake -- overgrown (4/8)

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson

3rd track is nice. So far he's the least interesting part of his own album though

this is fairly good - better than i expected. (i skipped out on the last one just bc it was so long.)
the clear standouts on this are the title track, the Rosalia one, "can't believe the way we flow," "i'll come too," and the last one.
not really feeling the Metro songs at all or the Andre 3000 song.

(if anything, the sequencing of both Metro songs one after another was a bad decision.)

0PN worked on "can't believe the way we flow" apparently which makes sense bc it's kind of like an ECCOJAM lol

my initial thoughts on this after one listen are that i like the tracks that have features (the andre 3000 one is the best of these), while the ones that are jb solos are kinda dull. will update as i listen more.....

this is really good....barefoot in the park really stands out to me. fwiw, i haven't liked anything he's done since self-titled, with the exception of like, the case of you cover/video.

Yeah albums fine but full of bad/haphazard sequencing decisions
i told him i'll kick my own ass, then kick his ass, and then kick my own ass again. i told him to hit me, i live for the moments. i told him i will eat him. he said i didnt know him, and he's a beast. i told him im a demon.

After 1 listen I like this album a lot. It's very gently rolling hills compared to the previous ones. I remember the great moments and mostly forgive the bad and what's inbetween like most of this fades away.

That reminds me, does anybody have a mp3 of this cover?




Ive got one (the official? Who knows) version but it has a terrible reverb over it which ruins the whole thing and the performance isn't as good as in the YouTube either.

Aye come on. his last few albums were uninspired wastes of his breadth and talent but this one, I'm in the 'here for the love songs' camp. and this is just a sweet song. it's allowed to have a corny video of nature unspoilt by and, not really intended for, us humans. couple of penguins grooming each other and bird's in flight formation?

At least the dude's committed!

this guy is awful. this thread should be deleted and his name should be stricken from the record.
