Released: February 19, 2013
Last month, Jamie Lidell released a self-titled album that seemed to be an ode to the 80s. Lighthearted, electro-funk best describes the sound of this album.
Jamie Lidell starts off with Selfish; Princes influence was all over this track as well as others such as You Know My Name. Throughout the album overly produced tracks are present with a few hidden gems. One of the best songs on Lidells album is So Cold. So Cold may remind one of Andre 3000s Love Below; its a funk, urban, track with Prince sounds and themes. Another well-balanced track is Dont Love Me. Dont Love Me is the most calm track; theres less electronic, more soul and more vocal presence.
In all, Jamie Lidell is a decent album. Its worth listening to once. Because its overly produced, listeners probably wont listen to this album on repeat too often.
Track 7: Blaming Something
