James Blunt launched his career with the multi-platinum selling Back to Bedlam. So far James Blunt has sold 17 million albums due to his ability to touch hearts and souls worldwide.   James career continues on its stellar journey in this his fourth album Moon Landing.

This album is the best James has recorded.  He maintains his poignant singing and outstanding lyrics without tunes of tortuous angst of the heart.

Postcards provides four minutes and four seven seconds of musical heaven.  It is a sincere, hope filled, light, love song. Written by James in conjunction with Wayne Hector and Steve Robinson the lyrics are tight and thought provoking…

”You know sometimes it’s hard to see.
Or say the words that torture me.
But inside I know exactly how I feel.
The things I can’t say out loud.
I’ll find a place to write it down.
I hope that they will find you in the end”

Tom Rothrock who also produced James’s debut album Back to Bedlam has expertly crafted this album.  James’s diction is crystal clear throughout the eleven track, forty three minute CD.  The lyrics are poetic and permeate the soul in a subtle yet powerful way that when you hear them again it feels like you are hearing good news from a friend. As a result listening to the album is a satisfying experience that makes you feel relaxed and happy every time you play it. Now that’s entertainment.   

 

People who have found the sombre sounds of James’s earlier albums just too sad to enjoy will be grateful for Mr Blunt’s Moon Landing.
