Blunt, James - Back To Bedlam Back To Bedlam
Pop Used - LP 73326 Custard
Long Out Of Print 2006 180gm Original With Insert. Appears Glossy, Unplayed. “Soulful British Crooner James Blunt's Wistful Debut Infuses The Listener -- In Order -- With Rainy-Day Hope, The Wistful Comfort Of Unattainable Love, And Finally, World-Weary Resignation. While His Parched And Effeminate Falsetto Recalls Gasoline Alley-Era Rod Stewart With A Healthy Dose Of Antony And The Johnsons, It's The Late Elliott Smith Who Casts The Largest Shadow On Back To Bedlam. Predictable But Effective Four-Chord Guitar Motifs Are The Chosen Vehicle For The Ex-Royal Armed Forces Soldier, And When They Connect ("Wiseman," "Goodbye My Lover," "You Are Beautiful"), It's Like A "Dear John" Letter From A Lover Who You Know Will Remain A Close But Ultimately Guarded Friend. Opening Track "High" Sets A Determined Midtempo Pace That Rarely Wanes -- It's Like An Acoustic Version Of "Drive" By The Cars With A Coldplay Chorus. It's A Pace That Would Sink Some Records, But Bedlam's Perfectly Rendered, Under 40-Minute Run Time Ensures That The Listener Doesn't Suffer From A Melancholy Overdose. Blunt Recounts His Harrowing Experiences As Part Of The NATO Peacekeeping Force In Kosovo On The Closer, "No Bravery," And It's A Shock To Hear All Of The Romantic Lyricism That Informed Bedlam Up To This Point Reduced To "Old Men Kneel And Accept Their Fate/Wives And Daughters Cut And Raped/A Generation Drenched In Hate," But It's Damn Effective -- As Is The Majority Of This Fine Debut.” James Christopher Monger, All Music.... more details
