Re: James Blunt

I always thought he was quite good - anyone that can write their own songs has to be respected for that.

Would love to be able to do that.

Wailing.......... I wouldn't want to be accused of 'composing' anything like that ............... and yes I have been known to write "songs"

Re: James Blunt

I voted Other - as in Ignore.....



He's ok - nothing special, but not offensively bad.

(but, then again, I used to say the same about Bananarama )

Re: James Blunt

The real test of any good singer/songwriter these days is how long they can stay in the game.

In recent years the life expectancy of any singer that 'makes it' is about two years. If he is still around in five years time we will know that he must be doing something right.

Once you can stay at it for a decade - you kinda get a lifelong membership of the club (aka - The rolling stones and U2)

Re: James Blunt

Boring, irritatating, contrite, juvenille, soulless, crap!!

He is to music what Austin Maxi's were to F1 development.

In case you hadnt guessed...I dont like his 'music',........................... using the term loosely.

But somebody should tell the Ston(er)s that they're WAAAAAAY past their prime...

Oh, and along the same lines, Aerosmith should be told that they're downright pathetic now. Quit trying to appeal to younger audiences and focus on the music, or get the hell out...

Not a bad songwriter, but his singing drives me up the wall.

Re: James Blunt

I appreciate he's not everyones cup of tea - good job we don't all like the same things because the world be a dull, albiet peaceful, place to be... but just imagine all those Alfas on the road if everybody had faultless tastes. I've just bought his DVD set: Chasing Time - The Bedlam Sessions. Loverly. I'll get my coat.

Re: James Blunt

Well I think he's OK. Can't understand why everyone keeps slagging him of so much - seems to be it's because its 'fashionable' to do so

Re: James Blunt

I think he's very good. The wife plays his album all the time, You're Beautiful is a very good song, and Goodbye My Lover is excellent. If you like his stuff you should also get The Story of O by Damien Rice, it has the song The Blower's Daughter in it, which was used in the soundtrack of Closer.

Yeah I don't mind his music either...the responses to these types of threads often remind me of those two old buffers in the balcony watching the Muppett show....they ranted their disapproval in unison and then swapped and applauded together...
