From Tshardy
James Blake is quickly becoming one of my favorite artists. With each album, he improves upon his sound. This project is more listenable than his first effort, and has him developing his craft at songwriting. All in all, a great listen and one of my favorites to have come out last year.

James Blake knows his sound and knows what he wants to do. Just recently he caught the attention of the great Kanye West. My favorite thing about James is he really doesn't care to make accessible music. Instead it opts for the extremely contemplative and deep. It's not easy to reach at all. It's one of those 'if you shut everything else off and really focus on every single little sound and progression, you discover it' type of deals.

A top ten album in 2013. When I first heard Julianna Barwick's "Nepenthe", I thought it might be a better record in a similar vein. After a few more listens, this one is broader, more ambitious, and just plain better.

Was pleasantly surprise how much I liked this album. Really laid back tracks. I will be checking out his debut.

This album is really great and a step-up, RZA actually fit in very well.

A lot better than his first album in my opinion, but still some songs seem too linear. And sometimes the songs have such similar qualities that they go past the realm of just 'his style' and go into the realm of a lack of creativity, if that makes any sense. But songs like Overgrown, Retrograde, and Voyeur are near perfect electronic ballads that really compliment his amazing voice.

A fantastic follow up to his self-titled, and proof that homeboy can do some amazing things in dubstep
