Blunt's sophomore album, All The Lost Souls, displays a huge musical growth from his smash hit debut, Back To Bedlam. These new, more mature songs, recall the sounds of Elton John, Cat Stevens, and Neil Young. In addition to being an excellent album, All The Lost Souls is packed with singles.

James Blunt-Chasing Time: The Bedlam Sessions (2006)
James Blunt-Chasing Time: The Bedlam Sessions (Amended) (2006)
In 2005, James Blunt was everybody's favorite overnight success story. In 2007, he's the guy who's making rock meaningful again. All the Lost Souls, the sophomore effort from the Brit responsible for restoring the seriousness of "beautiful" as a compliment, brims with big build-ups, epic-sounding ballads, and lyrics to lose yourself in. The vibe, laid out neatly on first single and opening track "1973", is clear-eyed and heavy-hearted; in anybody over 35, it'll produce nostalgia tempered by hopefulness. Here's a set that suggests rock has got its head screwed on straight again, that the path to real feelings need not necessarily be led by Norah Jones. In anybody younger, it'll cause the unsinkable suspicion that a lot of modern balladeers should be digging deeper. But in both cases it will satisfy. Compared with David Gray and Damien Rice last time out, this time Blunt seems to owe a debt to Barry Gibb--his voice quavers as sweetly and with the same delicate reach. Stand-outs on a brief but dud-less set include "I Really Want You," in which the sound of Blunt's breaking heart is set sparely and elegantly to something approximating the chirp of a cricket, the poignant and desperate "Give Me Some Love", and the VH-1 ready "Same Mistakes."--Tammy La Gorce

The quality of music is balanced perfectly well, some best hits are present.
"1973" - This is my favorite song on the album. I think it is one that can be (and is)played again and again.
"One of the Brightest Stars"
"I'll Take Everything"
"Same Mistake" - A track which has decent lyrics:
"I'm not calling for a second chance,
I'm screaming at the top of my voice,
Give me reason, but don't give me choice,
Cause I'll just make the same mistake again"
It tells a good story about his love and how he screwed up.
"Carry You Home"
"Give Me Some Love"
"I Really Want You"
"I Can't Hear the Music"
If you have Back to Bedlam you will like/love All Lost Souls. It is more of the same but different, if that makes any sense. Good CD.
I have to agree with Victoria Newton of The Sun who called the CD cover the "best in years",The cover consists of hundreds of pictures of Blunt (from childhood to recent) which forms a photomosaic of his face.
If you've never listened to him, NOW is the New Year, start it out with a.CD of him now, or put him on your phone so you can listen to him anywhere.
