You might be asking yourself, James Blake the tennis player? The answer to that is NO!
The James Blake I wish to present you is the musician. James Blake hails from England, what I jokingly call, the land of good music. He has 3 albums which are all worth talking about, yet that is not the point of this post. There is one specific album of his that I wish to present to you — “The Colour in Anything“. It was released on May 6th of this year and it’s been incorporated into my everyday life ever since it came out, and it is absolutely glorious. The Colour in Anything is beautifully produced, every song in this album is relevant all the way through; the songs on this album are all engaging and ever changing, you won’t want to skip any track. This is honestly one of the few albums in my life where I find every song entertaining in different ways, yet I do not have any particular song that I can say blatantly that I dislike. All the tracks in this album feel quite different, despite the slow undertone that envelops the theme of this album. It is a very powerful album in terms of vocals, James Blake really pushes the limit of his voice and makes for some astounding melodies. This is a dark album so don’t expect any jolly pick up songs here, but I can assure you that it will creep into the darkest places of your heart and it will grip you. The themes of this album do lean heavily towards heartbreak and romance, you could say that this is the perfect album to listen if you had your heartbroken recently; yet the songs are not depressing, they carry such power in the beat and vocals that you just fall into a beautiful trance. Here’s the only song from the album with an actual music video, but please, do yourself the favor and listen to it completely.
