Is he busy recording a new album?

I haven't heard much about him lately.

That chairlift would probably record a more interesting song than James "I spell my posh surname wrong to sound more down to earth" Blount could ever manage.

I wonder if all those zombies who bought the first album will flock to buy his next installment of pure drivel. Although they probably are now into James Morrison and Paulo Nutini, the fickle zombies

I was about to say Blunt sounds like Kermit the Frog....but Kermit is a legend.

Back To Bedlam is a fantastic album from start to finish.

I liked it, but I thought it was quite depressing to say the least.

i agree - it keeps from getting nasty rings on my coffee table.

Not really of course I didn't buy it.

I feel a bit sorry for Blunt really - he has one or two Ok tunes but has been a bit of the whipping boy for the music industry - which considering he is like some hard army dude is quite surprising

There was ONE, just ONE good track on there (the Wisemen one). The rest was absolute complete and utter dross of the worst possible caliber.

He's easily as good as Chris De Burgh!

In fairness to that Irish twerp De Burgh, he often gave sage advice, such as warning many about the dangers of paying scrupulous ferrymen upfront. (“Don’t even fix a price”)

The world was a safer, fairer place back then. So it was.

"Farked"? That sounds rather posh. Are you a close friend of the Blunt ones?

His Wikipedia has been hacked it seems...

James Blunt
Born February 22, 1974 (age 32)
Origin Tidworth, Wiltshire, England

James Blunt (born James Hitler Blount, 22 February 1974) is a talentless fud who eats babies , yet for some reason is also a 5-time Grammy Award nominated British singer-songwriter whose debut album, Back to Bedlam, and single releases — especially the number one hit "You're Beautiful" — brought him to fame in 2005. His style is a mix of pop, rock, folk and adult contemporary. Along with vocals, Blunt plays a wide variety of instruments including the piano, guitar, organ, marimba, and mellotron. He is signed to Linda Perry's American label Custard, and became the first British artist to top the American singles chart in nearly a decade when his song "You're Beautiful" reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2006. The last British artist to do so had been Elton John in 1997 with the song "Candle in the Wind".


This may have been edited by the time you read this and check it out for yourself but I swear that is what was written on it, I burst out laughing in the middle of the office...

I love how a vast majority of the public have repeatedly said he's talentless yet his album was on the top spot for weeks.

Go figure.

Plenty of morons about willing to buy rubbish albums though futurelover. Let's hope they learned their lesson now.

Well I for one never bought it.
I was a little "Yeah whatever" about it to begin with then my opinion changed later on some of the songs.

I still don't like a good portion of it though.
"No Bravery" is the probably the most depressing song I've ever heard.
