Album Review: Blake Lewis' sophmore album
An album of smooth electronica, dance-pop beats, Lewis again shows his love for dance music and smoothly written lyrics. Having penned the entire album he extends the bounds of where his debut album left off. A cool blend of electropop and everything that Blake showed to us during his time on American Idol.
His current single Sad Song is one of the best songs on the album. A heartbreaking account of some kind of miserable relationship given to us by Lewis' calm, easy vocals, and music that is almost as dancepop as the best of the 80's.
Our Rapture Of Love is also a great song, a pouring experience of melody and lyrics seemingly inspired by love.
Heartbreak On Vinyl is a wonderful album, taking us to thoughtful dance music and once more shows us the reason why Blake Lewis was in the top 2 of the 2007 season. It certainly does surpass his debut album, and the album as a whole shows Lewis' creativity moreso what with all the tracks having been written by him. It truly is disappointing that he gets little recognition for the talent he possesses and the music he creates but with every listen it becomes more apparent that he is a very good musician.
