For as big a hit as it was, “You”re Beautiful” wasn”t necessarily
representative of what kind of a singer/songwriter James Blunt is. It
wasn”t necessarily inaccurate, but it was misleading, suggesting that
all this tremulously tuneful singer/songwriter wants to do is be
sensitive — that he aimed himself squarely at the middle of the road,
crafting gentle music for housewives. That”s not quite the case, as his
2007 sophomore effort, All the Lost Souls, makes plain. Surely, Blunt is wholly mainstream, a slicker, spirited variation on David Gray”s
elegantly upscale folk-pop, but he”s not crassly commercial, deciding to disregard the path toward stultifying adult contemporary — a path that “You”re Beautiful” certainly pointed toward — but he”s also choosing
to not write happy, harmless pop like Daniel Powter, still dwelling on
moody, introspective midtempos. In other words, he still adheres to the
Gray template the second time around, but he opens things up slightly
with some spacy textures reminiscent of Coldplay and a heavy dose of
classic popcraft, learned equally from Elton John, David Bowie, and Paul McCartney. Oddly, the sum total of these influences turns Blunt into
the heir to that forgotten strain of wimpy, wispy songwriter-driven
British pop of the “70s embodied by such once-stars as Al Stewart, Leo
Sayer, and Gilbert O”Sullivan. The ghost of Gilbert echoes throughout
“One of the Brightest Stars,” and while this allusion is quite likely
inadvertent, it also doesn”t seem to be a coincidence that the opening
song (and first single) on All the Lost Souls is a song that celebrates
“1973,” because much of this album feels like it could have been
recorded and released during that mid-“70s heyday of sensitive pop. The
main difference is not the clean, modern production with its slight
digital flourishes — things that push the rhythms forward on “Give Me
Some Love,” one of the livelier moments here — but that Blunt isn”t
some quivering bedsit bard; he”s the babe who enthusiastically shed his
clothes in the “You”re Beautiful” video, somebody whose confidence
infuses his brokenhearted laments and makes them feel not quite so
melancholy. This makes All the Lost Souls soothing, not haunting, and it also removes many of the quirks that distinguished “70s albums by
McCartney, O”Sullivan, Sayer, and Elton, so this won”t quite seduce that kind of pop fan (although this may hold more interest for them than
they might initially think), nor will it win over anybody who can”t
quite get past the garbled, strangled soul affections of his voice,
which remains his greatest liability — but it will seduce anybody
already won over by his 2005 debut, Back to Bedlam, since it”s a
tighter, more assured record than that. But chances are, they were
seduced by Blunt already.
