    The problem with this world is that you'll never hear this on the radio. Instead the new world order prefers to rape our ears with songs like "Panda"

      Is the "new world order" a singular conscience? Or perhaps a collective, coordinating skillfully at every twist and turn of the road?

    Very intense song, especially the "we're alone now" repeat. A grown up love song

    I think I'm in love with him and his voice. What an enchanting duo. His voice actually is so mesmerising, I'd highly reccomend him to anyone

    Over a year since I first heard this as a hottest record for Zane Lowe on Radio1 and every time I hear it I stop what i'm doing and just listen. Stunning song and i'm so glad it won an ivor novello

    Solid Air is a good album but to comment that James Blake's music is simply 'boring' is too subjective to be taken seriously. Also, what John Martyn has to do with this I don't know.

  • musicbykiuhy8

    ok? his voice is a precision instrument. but i love solid air too.

    Whatever soul I have left, James Blake has a way of tapping into it. Incredible pieces of music.

    Screamed like a little girl when he won Mercury Music prize last night - I do think I am completely in love with him - obsessed with Overgrown - clearly I'm not the only one

    It's not often I'm totally amazed. James Blake just leaves me speechless and I'm just ...... I feel when I listen to him "Holy shit, actual music, for once!"

    Real raw talent. And he's hot. His music gives me the horn (tmi?)

  • Bravemarbles

    Agree, great English music out there. Hopefully more to come with people like Nathan Holme a personal favourite

    I will not dislike this but I just wasn't into this at all. This does absolutely nothing for me; however, I've scrolled down through the comments and it's almost all positive.

    I just don't belong in this audience I guess

    I was lucky enough to be at the recording :) James has a voice SPECTACULAR enough to induce a multiple orgasm ! If he doesn't win the Mercury Prize this year, the music world should hang its head in shame !!
