    Definitely listen to the Bamboos cover of this song featuring Megan Washington. I find it much more affecting and beautiful.

    Minimalist, death experience. Up-in-the-air, missiles in the sky, thermonuclear flashes, distant white cap mushroom clouds before painless dissociation.

    The fantasy, before the painful reality kicks in.
    The collapsing when seeing your friend's coffin. Breathless heart attack, last hallucinations. The extinguishing of thought. Bliss.

    I don't like this original version. It's just too slow. Even if the speed accelerated to 1,25.
    The remixes from Samu.l and Kygo are much better!
    Listen to it!

    Brings me back to the days of my freshman year when I was going through a time of self-healing. When I came across this song I can just remember the feeling of serenity washing over me. That was exactly four years ago and it still has the same affect on me, artist like James just can't die out.

    This song is in general the Willhelm Scream, the lyrics represent how the person feels, and the odd vision and raindrops are tear drops and how looks when you try to look around while crying with sick beats and that fire representing a burning feeling inside, yep it's for sure James you got more talent then others would say you lead on.

    it saddens me that james blake isn't at the top anymore. everything about this is perfect. the repetition, the buildup that perfectly disappears in a short length of time, the intentional overcompression and denseness, the light dissonance in parts. some of the best music to cope with.

    I here Bill Withers in James sound. He has that really smooth 70s and 80s R&B sound, that when fused with that Brit music mastering, it keeps me coming back. His sound is soul for the new millennium.

    amazing song.
    side note, you know when you have headphones on and crank the volume, there is that warning(at least on android). telling you the danger about loud volumes.... let's just be honest. it'd these youtube ads volume that is the real threat... cmon man
