View Full Version : Jim is better

Valarie didn't want to be a negative Nancy, so now Jim has its/his own thread. Contemplate why a british EDM artist has more soul in his left finger than most of us do in our whole bodies.

I just barely got this last night and have yet to listen to it...I am going to listen to it now.

'Tis a summer album, and it's bloody cold here (and raining). There is an invite only show in London tomorrow that i am in no way invited to.

Score an invite somehow. That mofo rocks the socks live. I'm going to post a picture of him at Pitchfork, just to accent my point.

Jim makes me want to get up and clap my hands.

Can someone, will anyone, hope somewhere you will send me the link?

From the El Rey website

Live in 2008, Jim is going to require a very new approach to performance. Jamie’s been experimenting with different musical combinations, looking for a band that can reflect the vibrancy and richness of the album, whilst allowing the songs to breathe differently each night. It’s clear that the live Jim experience will be something very special indeed.

Amy, it's Jamie Lidell's new cd.

I loved the first album, and I think his live show is great (seen 'im 3 times)... But this album is boring. I mean, it's fun and soulful, but nothing too special. I wish he would have experimented a little more.

Dude, it's agreat soul album. It's funky, it's relaxing, and it's got the grooves. It's not experimental in one sense, but it is in another, based on the music he used to make. This is a step for him.

There are some great moments, I just don't feel like this is an album I'll be listening too much. Bums me out because I listened to the last one constantly.

I kindof forgot about this album after a couple listens. It's still better than Portishead, though.

Did you see him in San Francisco? You shoulda seen him in San Francisco. The band was smokin'

Who is Jim? And how could he be better than either FOI or Randolph?

Lidell was definitely one of the best parts of Sasquatch. It's hard to compete with The Flaming Lips, but he gave the best actual performance.

Jared tried to get me to listen to him once. Mediocre.
