the first time i saw james blunt's you're beautiful video i thought they were making fun of coldplay's yellow or something
Both completely interchangable with each other, if you ask me. When I first heard "You're Beautiful" I thought it was Damien Rice. Better singer/songwriters I like right now: Billy Bragg, Willy Mason, Ryan Adams, Patrick Wolf, Emmylou Harris, Liam Frost, Sondre Lerche, Ben Kweller, Johnathan Rice, Mason Jennings, Langhorne Slim... just way, way better.
Damien Rice. JB's album is distinctly average. It lacks the creativity of Damien Rice's musak.
damien rice by a mile (and then some). i think he sounds like he really cares about what he's singing, it's got a real kind of passion to it (especially true of his life perfomances- BBC4 did a session with him and he was so totally absorbed in his songs), james blunt just sounds like he's jumping on the bandwagon- she's beautiful is just him whining about a random girl he sees who he'll never sleep with.
