Jamie Lidell – Jim

This is the third full-length release for the Brit who has frequently been touted as the new King of Soul. He’s certainly got soulful, rhythm and blues influences in his sound. Some music sites list his sound as electronic, but aside from a few electronic bits in the backing music of his songs, he owes a greater debt in his sound on this album to an artist such as Stevie Wonder, than Squarepusher. Personally, I rather enjoyed this album. There are a few slower songs that don’t mesh as well with the rest, but a track like “Out of My System” more than makes up for it, and will probably stick in your head for a long time after you hear it.
