Someone at work gave me James Blunt’s CD, Back To Bedlam to listen to. When I asked what it was like, she said, “I had enough money to buy either this or the new Nada Surf…. I fucked up bad.”
Awful. Just awful. He is every bad sensitive poet you have ever heard rolled into one whiny package. Although I have to admit that track #4, Goodbye My Lover, did cause me to actually laugh out loud.
I’m just not sure that was the response he was going for.
…and the new Nada Surf is really good .
