Ok, I’m not a Sam Smith fan by any means. Don’t get me wrong. Back in the day when he released the Nirvana EP I loved him and when he was oon Latch and Omen he’s so much more exciting but I felt that he became so generic when the album came out and was only really here for Like I can off that album. However I love Pray so much that I’m going to listen to this album now. Too good at goodbyes is so generic though.
I love diving in your mind and coming out with every diamond I can find...No Sleeep.

I hope they release No Peace as the next single even Burning and Pray are better than One Last Song imo :lol:

Hugely disappointed- loved his first album but this is so dreary.

Some people have said it takes a few listens so I’ll try and stick with it.

After a multiple listens, a lot of us may really enjoy that keyboard cat songs.
The album is a mish-mash of cliches

I don't understand how people can love his debut and not like this. They're easily on par with each other.

There no instant favorites, first time I listen "Like I can" I loved it. Even the lead I needed to listen twice to like it.

I agree there's nothing as instant as 'Like I Can' or nothing near as upbeat either. But Say It First is very catchy after a few listens and Burning/Pray/HIM triad is amazing.

I can see why One Last Song is the 2nd single, its more uptempo than the rest of the album. For 3rd single No Peace seems obvious. I wonder would Nothing Left for You end up as a single because it's very radio friendly

I can't believe this album gets so much hate online; personally I think it's on par with his debut or even better.

I also strongly disagree that there are no instant favourites on the record. - When I listened to "HIM" for the very first time, I fell in love with it and I think it has potential to become my favourite song performed by Sam. - It's emotional, soul-ish, it even has a catchy hook and the arrangement is brilliant.

"Say It First" may not be as catchy as "Like I Can" on the first listen but it's very memorable and is basically a track which could work for OneRepublic (if they stop turning into Maroon 5 2.0).

YEBBA steals Sam's thunder on No Peace. What a vocal.

Can she become the next Adele? Stay tuned.

This album is a massive grower. All in all a beautiful album. Well done, Sam.

Now release the third single.
