Review: James Morrison – Undiscovered

In the current landscape of solo singer/songwriter/performer (who by default earn more respect from me), it’s still takes time to find a new sparking one on a regular basis. The latest one to make a real dent seems to be James Morrison, going a similar way previous walked by the likes of Gavin DeGraw and Tyler Hilton, though having a coarser rougher voice.
Storming the charts is You Give Me Something, a wallowing sweet begging. Combined with a simple motif it still sounds nice, though it makes it a danger regarding its longevity. Luckily, there are a few stronger songs with more conviction, making a solid statement (Undiscovered, This Boy), but there are a lot of slow crooners and seemingly copies of other songs (Under the Influence, How Come) in there not to my liking. All in all, it’s a very mixed bag, and with only 3 songs picked out to inhabit my resident playlist, it didn’t reach the average grade.6½.
