From bland to blunt ? it's been a rollercoaster ride for James Blunt - the high-pitched half-pint posh ex-Army captain turned singer since he hit the big time with You're Beautiful.

The big-hit wonder started life as the next big thing with one huge No 1 and a platinum-selling debut - then dubbed James Bland as Beautiful was played to death. Now, though, he's back with All The Lost Souls which is a kind of musical two-fingers retort to the ridiculers.

And while Blunt doesn't push the boat out, he has produced a quite superb album full of the sort of ballad-type tunes he really does do best. With a bit of work Blunt could be the new Gilbert O'Sullivan.
