Album Review: In The Lonely Hour

British singer-songwriter, Sam Smith, has released his debut to the states In The Lonely Hour and it’s doing well on the Billboard 200 as it debuted at #3 and the following week ranked at #2. I’ve been hearing his music on the radio for quite some time I just never placed the sound with his name. I knew that I had to give his album a listen and give a review after hearing his rendition of Whitney Houston’s, ‘How Will I Know’. His voice is AMAZING!

In The Lonely Hour is available online and in-stores and via iTunes it’s $7.99 for the standard (10 tracks) and $10.99 for the deluxe (14 tracks). Amazon offers the album as well $10.49 for digital and $11.23 (odd price) for the audio CD. Both of those prices are for the deluxe and the standard is the same as iTunes, $7.99. Target of course has a special edition which features three bonus tracks: ‘Reminds Me of You’, ‘Stay With Me’ (featuring Mary J. Blige), and ‘In The Lonely Hour’. What’s missing on the Target edition is a track titled ‘Make It To Me’ which is featured on both iTunes and Amazon versions. Not sure why that was cut. The standard version for Target is $13.09 and the deluxe is $16.99. I say wait for a sale.

My Top 5 —

  •  ‘Good Thing’
  • ‘Not In That Way’
  • ‘Leave Your Lover’
  • ‘La La La’
  • ‘Latch (Acoustic)’

This album is so 60s and I love it. His voice is just so soothing. Everything blends together nicely

Take a listen to the album in its entirety below (via Spotify):
