Qui ne connaît pas James Blunt, la nouvelle star anglaise du "pop rock" ? L'un de ses titres (You're beautiful) a inondé nos radios pendant plusieurs mois, et l'a vraiment fait connaître.

Cet anglais de 23 ans sort son premier album "Back To Bedlam" en 2004 aux Royaumes Unis, et en 2005 en France.
Dans un genre "pop rock romantique", cet album est, je trouve, assez reposant.

Le thème principal évoqué est celui de l'amour (assez classique me direz-vous), mais il parle aussi de la guerre (allusions au Kosovo).
Pour être tout à fait honnête, ce chanteur ne brille pas vraiment par ses textes (du genre "faites l'amour pas la guerre"), mais plutôt par son style, assez simple et mélodique.

Je ne pense pas que ce chanteur laissera une trace dans les mémoires comme les beattles ou The cramberries, mais son album se laisse facilement écouter et permet de passer un petit moment de détente.

Pour ceux qui m'on demandé de compléter cet avis, voici une biographie plus complète de l'auteur :
James Blunt est né le 22 février 1972 en Angleterre. Issu d'une famille de militaires, il a commencé par des études en aérospatiale. Promu capitaine dans l'armée Anglaise, il part en ex-Yougoslavie avec l'ONU.
C'est un peu plus tard qu'il pourra enfin se concentrer sur sa vraie passion, la musique. Il part donc à Los Angeles en 2002, où il rencontre son futur producteur et commence à préparer son premier album.

Voilà les paroles des pistes de cet album (par titre) :
===== 1. High (4.03) - J. Blunt & R.Ross =====
Beautiful dawn - lights up the shore for me.
There is nothing else in the world,
I'd rather wake up and see (with you).
Beautiful dawn - I'm just chasing time again.
Thought I would die a lonely man, in endless night.
But now I'm high; running wild among all the stars above.
Sometimes it's hard to believe if you remember me.

Beautiful dawn - melt with the stars again.
Do you remember the day when my journey began?
Will you remember the end (of time)?
Beautiful dawn - You're just blowing my mind again.
Thought I was born to endless night, until you shine.
High; running wild among all the stars above.
Sometimes it's hard to believe if you remember me.

Will you be my shoulder when I'm grey and older?
Promise me tomorrow starts with you,
Getting high; running wild among all the stars above.
Sometimes it's hard to believe if you remember me
High; running wild among all the stars above.
Sometimes it`s hard to believe if you remember me

===== 2. You're Beautiful (3.36) - J. Blunt. S. Skarbek. A. Ghost =====
My life is brilliant.

My life is brilliant.
My love is pure.
I saw an angel
Of that I'm sure.
She smiled at me on the subway.
She was with another man.
But I won't lose no sleep on that
'Cause I've got a plan.

You're beautiful, You're beautiful,
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do
'Cause I'll never be with you.

Yes, she caught my eye
As I walked on by.
She could see from my face that I was fuckin high,
And I don't think that I'll see her again,
But we shared a moment that will last 'til the end.

You're beautiful, You're beautiful,
You're beautiful, it's true,
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do
'Cause I'll never be with you.

You're beautiful, You're beautiful,
You're beautiful, it's true.
There must be an angel
With a smile on her face
When she thought up that I should be with you,
But it's time to face the truth.
I will never be with you.

===== 3. Wisemen (3.46) - J. Blunt. J. Hogarth. S. Skarbek. =====
She said to me, "Go steady on me.
Won't you tell me what the Wise Men said?
When they came down from Heaven,
Smoked nine 'til seven,
All the shit that they could find,
But they couldn't escape from you,
Couldn't be free of you,
And now they know there's no way out,
And they're really sorry now for what they've done,
They were three Wise Men just trying to have some fun."

Look who's alone now,
It's not me. It's not me.
Those three Wise Men,
They've got a semi by the sea.
Got to ask yourself the question,
Where are you now?
Got to ask yourself the question,
Where are you now?

Really sorry now,
They weren't to know.
They got caught up in your talent show,
With you pernickety little bastards in your fancy dress,
Who just judge each other and try to impress,
But they couldn't escape from you,
Couldn't be free of you,
And now they know there's no way out,
And they're really sorry now for what they've done,
They were three Wise Men just trying to have some fun.

Look who's alone now,
It's not me. It's not me.
Those three Wise Men,
They've got a semi by the sea.
Got to ask yourself the question,
Where are you now?
Got to ask yourself the question,
Where are you now?
(x2)

Where are you now?
Where are you now?

Got to ask yourself the question,
Where are you now?
Got to ask yourself the question,
Where are you now?

===== 4. Goodbye My Lover (4.23) - J. Blunt S. Skarbek. =====
Did I disappoint you or let you down?
Should I be feeling guilty or let the judges frown?
'Cause I saw the end before we'd begun,
Yes I saw you were blinded and I knew I had won.
So I took what's mine by eternal right.
Took your soul out into the night.
It may be over but it won't stop there,
I am here for you if you'd only care.
You touched my heart, you touched my soul.
You changed my life and all my goals.
And love is blind and that I knew when,
My heart was blinded by you.
I've kissed your lips and held your hand.
Shared your dreams and shared your bed.
I know you well, I know your smell.
I've been addicted to you.

[x2]
Goodbye my lover.
Goodbye my friend.
You have been the one.
You have been the one for me.

I am a dreamer and when i wake,
You can't break my spirit - it's my dreams you take.
And as you move on, remember me,
Remember us and all we used to be
I've seen you cry, I've seen you smile.
I've watched you sleeping for a while.
I'd be the father of your child.
I'd spend a lifetime with you.
I know your fears and you know mine.
We've had our doubts but now we're fine,
And I love you, I swear that's true.
I cannot live without you.

[x2]
Goodbye my lover.
Goodbye my friend.
You have been the one.
You have been the one for me.

And I still hold your hand in mine.
In mine when I'm asleep.
And I will bare my soul in time,
When I'm kneeling at your feet.
Goodbye my lover.
Goodbye my friend.
You have been the one.
You have been the one for me.

I'm so hollow, baby, I'm so hollow.
I'm so, I'm so, I'm so hollow.
I'm so hollow, baby, I'm so hollow.
I'm so, I'm so, I'm so hollow.

===== 5. Tears and Rain (4.07) - J. Blunt & G. Chambers =====
How I wish I could surrender my soul;
Shed the clothes that become my skin;
See the liar that burns within my needing.
How I wish I'd chosen darkness from cold.
How I wish I had screamed out loud,
Instead I've found no meaning.

I guess it's time I run far, far away; find comfort in pain,
All pleasure's the same: it just keeps me from trouble.
Hides my true shape, like Dorian Gray.
I've heard what they say, but I'm not here for trouble.
It's more than just words: it's just tears and rain.

How I wish I could walk through the doors of my mind;
Hold memory close at hand,
Help me understand the years.
How I wish I could choose between Heaven and Hell.
How I wish I would save my soul.
I'm so cold from fear.

I guess it's time I run far, far away; find comfort in pain,
All pleasure's the same: it just keeps me from trouble.
Hides my true shape, like Dorian Gray.
I've heard what they say, but I'm not here for trouble.
Far, far away; find comfort in pain.
All pleasure's the same: it just keeps me from trouble.
It's more than just words: it's just tears and rain.

ahhh..
tears and rain
(x2)

Far, far away; find comfort in pain.
All pleasure's the same: it just keeps me from trouble.
It's more than just words:
it's just tears and rain.

===== 6. Out of My Mind (3.38) - J. Blunt =====
Judging by the look on the organ grinder,
He'll judge me by the fact that my face don't fit.
It's touching that the monkey sits on my shoulder.
He's waiting for the day when he gets me,
But I don't need no alibi - I'm a puppet on a string.
I just need this stage to be seen.
We all need a pantomime to remind us what is real.
Hold my eye and know what it means.

Cause I'm out of my mind.
I'm out of my mind.
I'm out of my mind.
I'm out of my mind.
I'm out of my mind.
I'm out of my mind.
I'm out of my mind.
I'm out of my mind.

Judging by the look on the organ grinder,
He'll judge me by the fact that my face don't fit.
It's touching that the monkey sits on my shoulder.
He's waiting for the day when he gets me,
But I won't be your concubine - I'm a puppet not a whore.
I just need this stage to be seen.
Will you be a friend of mine to remind me what is real?
Hold my heart and see that it bleeds.

Cause I'm out of my mind.
I'm out of my mind.
I'm out of my mind.
I'm out of my mind.

Cause I'm out of my mind.
I'm out of my mind.
I'm out of my mind.
I'm out of my mind.
I'm out of my mind.
I'm out of my mind.
I'm out of my mind.
I'm out of my mind.

Da da dadadlada
Da da dadadlada
Da da dadadlada…(Fades out)

===== 7. So Long, Jimmy (4.35) - J. Blunt & J. Hogarth. =====
I just can't believe that it's over.
We were chilling out on the sofa,
Digging how the guitar goes,
In a song that no one knows.
Did you lick that line yourself,
Or did the voodoo magic help?
Does everyone have a different take?
Do you seem real but I seem fake?
Does everyone get hypnotized by your fire?

So long, Jimmy, so long.
Though you only stayed a moment,
We all know that you're the one. Singing,
So long, Jimmy, so long.
Sure we're glad for the experience,
We miss you now you've gone.
We're just swimming in your soul 'cause,
We all wish we wrote this song.
Life goes on.

I'm just so relieved that it's over.
We were hanging out going nowhere,
Digging how the guitar goes,
In a song that no one knows.
Did you burn that bridge yourself,
Or did the voodoo magic help?
Does everyone have a different take?
Are you just cool and I'm just baked?
Does everyone get mesmerized by your fire?

So long, Jimmy, so long.
Though you only stayed a moment,
We all know that you're the one. Singing,
So long, Jimmy, so long.
Sure we're glad for the experience,
We miss you now you've gone.
We're just swimming in your soul 'cause,
We all wish we wrote this song.
Life goes on.

===== 8. Billy (3.38) - J. Blunt. S. Skarbek. A. Ghost =====
Billy's leaving today (don't know where he's going).
Holds his head in disgrace (he can't escape the truth).
He knows the price that he's paid.
He admits that it's too late to admit that he's afraid.

(chorus)
Tomorrow comes. Sorrow becomes his soul mate.
The damage is done. The prodigal son is too late.
All doors closed but he's always open,
To hear the time in his mind.
Oh Billy.

Billy's leaving today (don't know where he's going).
He's got lines on his face (they tell the story of his pain).
He accepts it's his fate.
He admits it took too long to admit that he was wrong.

(chorus)
Tomorrow comes. Sorrow becomes his soul mate.
The damage is done. The prodigal son is too late.
All doors closed but he's always open,
To hear the time in his mind,
Oh Billy.

Once he was a lover sleeping with another.
Now he's just known as a cheat.
And he wish he'd had a mirror; looked a little clearer.
Seen into the eyes of the weak. (verse x2)

Tomorrow comes. Sorrow becomes his soul mate.
The damage is done. The prodigal son is too late (too late).
All doors closed but he's always open,
To relive time in his mind.
Oh Billy.

===== 9. Cry (4.19) - J. Blunt S. Skarbek. =====
I have seen peace. I have seen pain,
Resting on the shoulders of your name.
Do you see the truth through all their lies?
Do you see the world through troubled eyes?
And if you want to talk about it anymore,
Lie here on the floor and cry on my shoulder,
I'm a friend.

I have seen birth. I have seen death.
Lived to see a lover's final breath (hold on)
Do you see my guilt? Should I feel fright?
Is the fire of hesitation burning bright?
And if you want to talk about it once again,
On you I depend. I'll cry on your shoulder.
You're a friend.

You and I have lived through many things.
I'll hold on to your heart.
I wouldn't cry for anything,
But don't go tearing your life apart.

I have seen fear. I have seen faith.
Seen the look of anger on your face.
And if you want to talk about what will be,
Come and sit with me, and cry on my shoulder,
I'm a friend.
And if you want to talk about it anymore,
Lie here on the floor and cry on my shoulder once again, cry on my shoulder,
I'm a friend.

===== 10. No Bravery (4.02) - J. Blunt. S. Skarbek. =====
There are children standing here,
Arms outstretched into the sky,
Tears drying on their face.
He has been here.
Brothers lie in shallow graves.
Fathers lost without a trace.
A nation blind to their disgrace,
Since he's been here.

And I see no bravery,
No bravery in your eyes anymore.
Only sadness.
(x2)
Only sadness

Houses burnt beyond repair.
The smell of death is in the air.
A woman weeping in despair says,
He has been here.
Tracer lighting up the sky.
It's another families' turn to die.
A child afraid to even cry out says,
He has been here.

And I see no bravery,
No bravery in your eyes anymore.
Only sadness.
(x2)

There are children standing here,
Arms outstretched into the sky,
But no one asks the question why,
He has been here.
Old men kneel to accept their fate.
Wives and daughters cut and raped.
A generation drenched in hate.
Says, he has been here.

And I see no bravery,
No bravery in your eyes anymore.
Only sadness.

And I see no bravery,
No bravery in your eyes anymore.

And I see no bravery,
No bravery in your eyes anymore.
Only sadness.
(x2)
Only sadness
