James Blake - Assume Form
Jan 17, 2019
80
An astoundingly beautiful album which takes away a lot of the abstractions and loops that have made his previous albums interesting, but also difficult and distant in places. On Assume Form, Blake sounds liberated, replacing many of his production tricks with sincere, earnest lyrics and full bodied vocals. I really get the sense that in this regard, Assume Form shows him at his most daring as he is confident enough to be vunerable. Even without the lyrical and vocal changes however, each track has its own distinctive and vibrant melody, fully immersing me from start to finish. The features are also very tasteful and become valuable tools in Blake's arsenal.

This is an exciting way to start the year. Thank you James.
