Product Details

Performer Notes
  • Photographer: Alexander Brown.
  • Following a flurry of profile-raising 12" EPs and singles scattered throughout 2010, James Blake issues his first full-length album, a self-titled release, through the Atlas and A&M labels. It's led by Blake's final 2010 release, a sparse, heartfelt cover of Feist's "Limit to Your Love," and combines his spacy but bass-heavy production approach with bare vocals.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.75) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Blake uses neosoul keyboards, blip beats and layered snips of his heart-starved warbling to create eerie, softly roiling slow-jams."

Spin (p.75) - "Using lo-fi digital techniques to play up rough edges and raw emotion, Blake's rare talent is to make music so naked seem unshakable."

Magnet (p.37) - Ranked #20 in Magnet's '20 Best Albums Of 2011' -- "His itchy productions were born with an innate sense of agitated drama, the tension that lies the shadows of a pregnant pause or fermata rest."

The Wire (p.46) - "Blake is an instrumentalist, digital synthesist, producer and engineer too, and -- most crucially of all -- blurs the boundaries between these roles."

CMJ - "[Blake] reaches unplumbed emotional depths using the mostly untapped potential of electronics to reach the soul."

Q (Magazine) (p.113) - 4 stars out of 5 -- ""Blake has an uncanny ear for what to leave out, and how absence can play on the imagination."

Paste (magazine) - "With a stripped-down, uncluttered sound, Blake's creations are hauntingly beautiful. His voice echoes soulfully throughout..."

Clash (magazine) - "His are fragile, beautiful songs floating over warmly alien, sometimes seemingly formless musical structures yet it's an effort borne through unconventional levels of space and patience."

Uncut (magazine) (p.98) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Blake takes from dubstep an awareness of space and silence; he appreciates the power of a perfectly weighted pause."

Uncut (magazine) (p.33) - Ranked #21 in Uncut's '50 Best Albums Of 2011' -- "Blake's debut album revealed him to be an innovative singer-songwriter....Spare, beat-strewn and strikingly plaintive."
