James Morrison – You Make It Real

Last August 10, 2008 I posted the news that James Morrison is releasing a single off from his sophomore album titled “Songs For You, Truths For Me”. His single “You Make It Real” is going to be released September 22, 2008.

“You Make It Real” is still a proof that James is still in his element. Strings, soulful vocals and of course, appreciative lyrics. It isn’t quite a bad song but not the same as the ones he did in the past like “You Give Me Something” and “Wonderful World”. It’s a husky, squeaky clean ballad that reminds every guy how wonderful to have a girlfriend or somesort. The disappointment of the song is that it lacks the big chorus that just storms every radio station and the girls fall in love with. But still, let’s wait for his sophomore album when it hit stores a week after the release of Morrison’s 6th single.

Nonetheless, James is still in his distinct element that made us fall in love with his first releases. For some, it still maybe just some sleepy stuff that you want to hear to make you sleep. But he ain’t going to sell like 2 million albums if all of the buyers want is some sleepy shit.
