Editorial Reviews

''Merging electronic beats and sounds with those of classic soul, Lidell has created a new future-retro R&B that simultaneously evokes and revitalizes the sound of a bygone era.''--The Believer

Jamie Lidell's upcoming self-titled recording is the fifth full-length release from the critically acclaimed artist, whose previous records have been praised by the New York Times as ''exceedingly precise and lovely,'' including 2008's Jim, which was named Best Pop/Rock Album by the Independent Music Awards.

Format: Audio CD
Following his 2008 release Jim,which was something of the apex of his creativity in the funk/soul idiom,Jamie Lidell returned two years later with Compass-a very uneven album that seemed to have a lot of difficulty resolving the conflict between live instrumental fluidity and electronic noodling. Funny thing is,that was something Lidell seemed to have resolved far earlier. So I never understood why some of the songs on that were among his best,while a lot of them were barely worth mentioning. Sometimes an artist makes such decisions for the sake of just being musically diverse. The results will vary,and that might have been what Lidell did there. I am not inside his head. But that same year another artist with whom Lidell appeared on the cover of Paste magazine once with began to go in a similar musical direction that he had helped pioneer: her name was Janelle Monae. Taking into account what she did on her The ArchAndroid seems to have made an impact on him because the Jamie Lidell of 2005-2008 is back with a musical vengeance!

From back to front this album is full on inspired by early/mid 80's boogie and naked electro funk. On "I'm Selfish" and "Big Love" that's just what he delivers in full,with his big deep soul vocals wailing out right up their with the expressive,bass synth and percussive drum machine heavy synthesizer operating at peak level.

Infusing classic R&B with 70's to 80's funk grooves with a bit of electronic experimentation, Jamie triumphs with this fantastic new album...a must have! If he lost you a bit with Compass, but you wanted more of what was promised with tracks like Telephone....you'll love it!

Jamie Lidell is not an easy album to review. Multiply, Jim, and Compass, his previous efforts, all had wildly different sounds and this album is no different. Having listened to, and loved, all of his other albums, I have to say that this one is the most consistent in sound, which is not a bad thing.

With Jamie Lidell, he has seamlessly merged his soul inspired sound with the electronic music that he grew up listening to and it is beautiful; eventually. If I'm being honest, I am, sonically, very stupid. I can listen to something once and hate it, but hear it a few more times and come to adore it. At no point did I ever 'hate' this album, but there is just so much here it took me a few listens to truly hear it. I can say with absolute honesty that it was definitely worth it.

So far my favorite tracks are, in order they appear on the album: track one 'I'm Selfish', track two 'Big Love', track three 'What A Shame', track five 'You Naked', track nine 'So Cold', and track eleven 'In Your Mind'. This list could easily change, as I have had this album on repeat since I got it four days ago, and I hear something new and different with every listen.

That is the beauty of this album; there are so many incredible sounds to discover and once you do, it adds a little something extra to the overall sound that takes it to the next level. At this moment I couldn't tell you which of Jamie's albums I love the most, but I have a feeling that after a few more listens 'Jamie Lidell' may very well be my answer. Seeing as Multiply and Jim never leave my rotation, there can be no higher praise. A new classic and a must buy.

If you have been missing the sounds and beats which made Prince a house hold name then this disc is for you. This is a very funky album. Jamie Lidell could be the love child of his purple badness and George Clinton. It will get your booty on the dance floor.

My only critique is that this album misses the timeliness of Jim and another reviewer mentioned cohesiveness, but put this album on random and I'm hard pressed not to dance at any given point.

At one point I imagined 80's Prince or Morris Day and the Time calling Jamie up and saying, "Hey we were gonna make this!" But he did it, and perhaps just as similarly, the movement to more funk and synth based music like that of Motown's greatest soul contributors finds a fitting comparison. Jamie is finding that route and showing off his appreciation. This album is bounded together from Lidell's soulful voice, which to me is the most truthful and honest of this new electro-soul movement that is reviving in spurts these days. Acts like Sharon Jones and Jamiroquai bring a great nod to soul, but Jamie is the only one who I feel transforms it! I get the opposition and I understand it can be a hard pill to swallow at times, but this man is putting out album after album of music that is effectively danceable and appreciable to just chillin. It's good and you should get it, but don't come from nowhere to listen, start with at least 2 previous albums and then you'll see its progress.
