Overgrown - James Blake [Review]

The hardest part for any artist is to make the second album after a highly-acclaimed debut album. That's the case of James Blake, an Electronic and Dubstep producer, who released his first album on 2011. James Blake became very popular, receiving good reviews from most of the critics, saying that James Blake might be "The great next thing". So two years after that glorious release, he gives us his sophomore album called Overgrown. Not surprisingly. this album got mature sound and feels like that James Blake grew up during the last two years. The first single, Retrograde, which was released earlier this year is one of the best songs so far. Listening to this album makes you feel like you're laying back, with Blake's breezy voice floating over you. After listening to it a few times, it seems that it's one of the best records of 2013 so far. The mixture between the Electronic beats, Dubstep rhythm and Blake's soft voice are produced perfectly to match each other. So before you're running to get your own copy, here are five songs that may help you do so....
