Writing in our review, we said of the record, “Laid over his trademark minimalist production, James Blake battles with his insecurities on the tentatively optimistic ‘Funeral’. ‘I feel invisible in every city,’ he remarks on this familiar feeling. ‘Don’t give up on me,’ he pleads, before promising that “I’ll be the best I can be”. It’s this journey through self-doubt that underpins his fifth studio album, one that ultimately looks to celebrate the self regardless of wider influence.”
