As a piece of propaganda, James Blunts album Back to Bedlam does more for changing the face of the British Army than a series of television adverts ever could. Swapping a rifle for a guitar, the former cavalrymans ballad-heavy debut is a clearly aiming to win the battle for the publics hearts and minds.
Album · 2004 · 11 Songs. With unfettered emotion and tremulous vocals, James Blunt won hearts with the mega-ballads You’re Beautiful and Goodbye My Lover. It’s easy to connect with the Englishman, as he writes poetically about love and loss while delivering songs in a sweet falsetto that trembles with passion. He used his experience in the British army as part of a NATO peacekeeping force in Kosovo to write the moving No Bravery, proving he could translate the global into the personal.

James Blunt completely sidesteps this as well. A mere check of his hit single You're Beautiful will reveal just how awful Blunt be. There is the quintessential Blunt chorus "You’re beautiful. You're beautiful, it's true". Back to Bedlam is kind of a neat title. And Wisemen is a decent song (I mean, come on, psuedo-biblical references ftw).
