James Blake has long been a hip-hop ally. Not only has his own discography cemented him as a critically acclaimed artist, the multiple Grammy award-nominee and Mercury Prize winner has worked with artists from the likes of Drake, Beyonce, Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, Frank Ocean and more. 2018 was a massive year for the producer, singer and song-writer who collaborated with Kendrick Lamar on the era-defining Black Panther soundtrack and lent his vocals to Travis Scott's "Stop Trying To Be God."

"Assume Form" (12 tracks; 48 min.) opens with the jarring and nervous title track. Next come "Mile High (featuring Travis Scott and Metro Boomin)" (2nd UK single), and "Tell Them" (feat. Moses Sumney & Metro Boomin), which don't do much for me either. "Into the Red" on the other hand, immediately sounds familiar and comforting. This continues on "Barefoot In the Park (feat. ROSALIA)", which is my favorite tune from Side A, a brooding and haunting tune, just beautiful. Side B opens with "Are You In Love?", a lovely piece. "Where's The Catch? (feat. André 3000)" could be another massive hit like "King's Dead". "I'll Come Too" turns more introspective. Two of my favorite tracks on this album come at the very end: "Don't Miss It" (1st UK single), which has what I would call the 'traditional' (ol' school) James Blake sound you heard on the first two albums. Then there is the album-closing "Lullaby For My Insomniac" (3rd UK single), and the song's title says all you need to know. These last 2 tracks contain the haunting and emotional slowburner sound that I absolutely loved on the early stuff from James Blake, but which he is more or less abandoning, a trend that started on"The Colour of Anything" and that is clearly continuing on "Assume Form".
You haven't had the full James Blake experience yet if you haven't see him live. I saw him (with his backing band) several times in the early years when he was touring in support of this first two albums. What an incredible experience that was. Even though I'm not liking his "evolving" sound as much as the early stuff, I'll still go see him in concert anytime, anywhere. If you have a chance to catch him live, do not miss him!
