Title - 'Songs for You, Truths for Me' (Interscope)
Artist - James Morrison
James Morrison comes through yet again with a brilliant sophmore album. If you liked undiscovered you will definitely love this one. Without getting into too much detail I can tell you that although it's hard to believe, this album is better than his previous one. I love every song with the exception of "Dream On Hayley", but considering I'm writing a review after listening to it only once I'm sure that will change.
Lead-off single "You make it real" is a lovely piano/guitar driven ballad with a plaintive delivery. The gently pulsing "Broken strings" features Nelly Furtado on additional vocals. "If you don't wanna love me" is Blues-tinged with fiery vocals, and would put a smile on Mr Cooke's face.
"The only night" is an upbeat piano rocker Elton John or Paul Weller could have done, while the gently stomping "Nothing ever hurt like you" reminds me ever so faintly of "I heard it through the grapevine".
Indeed, every song is spectacular but I'd have to say that my favorite is "Please Don't Stop The Rain". I highly recommend that you go out and buy this album if you were a fan of the first one; and if you haven't heard any James Morrison before give him a chance. It definitely will be worth your time.
