    I listened to it in a melancholic mood in a bubble bath with somber candles lit. What did I do wrong?

    Then I tried listening to it while kickboxing in the middle of a lazer light tag arena. Still didn't click.

    Did you have them put the album on the loud speakers at the laser tag place? Or just headphones?

    How is this mediocre? If you want to compare it to his other releases, this is a pretty good follow-up in the same vein as his debut album. Though not his best, it still has that good composition and pacing James Blake likes work with. Or were you expecting him to do the same beats and tricks from his early days? He got way too excited with his Prophet 08 on this one though.

    I placed 5th out of 17, an impressive feat considering I was quite focused on my kick boxing and blindfolded Blake-listening.

    Hey shithead, it's mediocre because that's my opinion. I find it mediocre in comparison to his earlier works, which I'm much more fond of. I'm not a fan him deciding to go down the path of melodic lyric driven songs.

    I'm going rogue from the RZA predictions and calling a Bon Iver appearance. That RZA track is a stain on an otherwise great album for me. Also, did anyone scope the deluxe edition? The bonus track "Every Day I Ran" is a disgrace to all things pleasurable. James needs to stay away from his hip hop leanings if those two tracks are any indication of his ability.

    The album is a solid 3/5. He played it too safe.

    His music live is quite different from the recordings. They are much more dance friendly. He's great live. Really excited to see him play this new stuff.
    anything could happen

    I do not agree at all. His strengths lend themselves perfectly to hip hop production. I think that while this album is not as good as his last, it is still a good album.

    Fair enough. It's better than a lot of shit. Way better.
    But it's still pretty boring.
    I want to like it. I do. But why should it have to be that much work? It's not like he's fucking Merzbow or Orthrelm or someone who's fun to be challenged by. He's just a sad English bro. With an amazing voice. That he's fallen into using way, way too much on every song.

    There was an insane moment when James lyrics mentioned light, and then the sun peaked though the tent's opening. Security began to hose down the audience with misters and a huge rainbow appeared in front of the stage. It was surreal.
