From Vatsal
Oh, this is a great album! Don't let Pitchfork fool you, this album may not be as technically accomplished as his first two but it is brimming with all this emotion, its so beautiful.
All of his previous album covers have his face obscured or distorted, and for Assume Form its the exact opposite with the hair even pulled back. A fitting cover cuz this album is James Blake unravelled, representing the current state of mind he's in and its just so pure and heartfelt.
I loved Blake's music for its cold and emotionally detached vibe, but I'm so glad he's in a place to have made this record.

I am pretty much in love with the entire album except a couple songs, but I'll come too is an absolute highlight!

From Brad1770
2013's 'Overgrown' was superb and one of the years best albums

2016's 'The Colour in Anything' was a bleak depressing affair and ultimately disappointing

Which brings us to 2019's 'Assume Form' ? And the verdict ?
It's good ! . Not 'Overgrown' good , but good none the less

Those who are commenting "it all sounds the same" clearly haven't listened to this album multiple times and are misinformed. There's the moody title track "Assume Form" , there's the Eastern sounding "Tell Them" , the duet "Barefoot In The Park" , the minimalism of "Are You In Love?" , the rap rhymes of "Where's The Catch?" , the edgy "Don't Miss It " and atmospheric closer "Lullaby For My Insomniac" . Incredible variety

Also love the guest's who appear here: Travis Scott ("Mile High") , Moses Sumney ("Tell Them") , ROSALIA ("Barefoot In The Park") and Andre 3000 (the wonderful "Where's The Catch?")

J.B is 2-1 in the positive for his last 3 albums

Nice going Jimbo

Not much diversity, felt like the same song was playing the whole time.

From Kurtco
Ha! James Blake! On this new album Blake does not really renew, but it does a good job. I even think that "Assume Form" is one of his best albums with his debut album "James Blake" and "Overgrown". Mixing R & B and Electro, the English artist gains maturity on this opus.

7/10

Best track: "Dont Miss It"

From Skinny
Not gonna lie, Pitchfork really hit the nail on the head with this. His stretch from the incredible Air & Lack Thereof through to Overgrown (where his current dancefloor-ignoring, gauzy, Tricky-meets-Beautiful South routine hit its peak) seems so long ago now. Fuck trap snares, from somebody who loves trap.
