Produced by James Blake. And I want you to know I took it with me That when things are thrown away like they are daily Time passes and the constants stay. So if that is how it is I don’t wanna be a star But a stone on the shore A lone doorframe in a wall When everything’s overgrown But what she really really wanted was my rights and my wrongs And I wouldn’t understand but I would try playing along.
James Blake's follow-up to his breakthrough self-titled album incorporates more gospel and R&B elements and a wider variety of textures. He successfully splits the difference between the sultry bedroom vibes of R&B’s resurgent Quiet Storm moment and the more mundane life of a British bedroom artist. Blake’s real argument for the continued relevance of his dewy, electronic gospel-folk comes via his second LP, Overgrown. Whether they’re meant as representations of conflicted emotions or simply designed to get crowds moving, the codas to Digital Lion and Voyeur are as bass-first and funky as anything Blake’s done to date.

James Blake's second studio album, Overgrown, is a hypnotizing foray from an artist whose influences have grown from the subtle, futuristic textures of his eponymous 2011 debut to embrace everything from gospel choirs to post-dubstep. On Overgrown, Blake further expands his omnivorous influences and yields eclectic results-from a hip-hop track featuring RZA ("Take a Fall for Me") to a piano ballad that foregoes synths and electronics entirely ("Dlm").

With his 2011 debut full-length, d R&B producer James Blake delivered on the promise of his earlier singles while at the same time overhauling his sound, moving away somewhat from the sample-heavy dubstep of those tracks to a sparser atmosphere. The album focused more on Blake's equally haunted piano and vocal lines, submerged elements of implied rhythms, dubstep's subsonic bass resonance, and ghostly samples to create a picture of restraint and contained emotional upheaval. The album felt not so much like the calm before the storm, but like silently watching.
