Five albums in and James Blunt has struck gold again! Blunt seriously knows how to write a catchy tune. The album kicks off with the upbeat tropical vibes of ‘Love me Better’ and continues to drift into some excellent melodies. The foundation of his writing is the clear stigma attached to his earlier works, ‘You’re Beautiful’ being the key example. However with big hits like ‘Bartender’ and ‘Don’t Give Me Those Eyes’, ‘The Afterlove’ is definitely up there with Blunt’s earlier album ‘Back to Bedlam’ and proof that he must be doing something right, with such a big fanbase five albums later.
