James Morrison - Higher Than Here Album Review


With a trio of top three UK albums to his credit (including two which reached the summit), James Morrison established himself as one of the leading singer-songwriters in the country. His forth release will see him tour the UK over the coming months, culminating in a huge show at Manchester Arena.

James Morrison - Higher Than Here Album Review

Opening with a high-pitch vocal hook, 'Demons' is about as upbeat a song as you will find about admitting your deficiencies, while 'Stay Like This' sees Morrison return to the familiar ground for which he is best known. 'Heaven To A Fool' is a solid ballad, darker than you'd perhaps expect, but 'Right Here' picks up the pace and then some, bringing some delectable funk rhythm. Some of the middle order finds the Warwickshire native lacking in inspiration - 'We Can' and 'Something Right' remain faithful to his blend of acoustic soul, yet they lack a lasting appeal.

Thankfully two of the best offerings appear toward the conclusion of 'Higher Than Here' - the title track which shares the name of the record is Morrison doing what he does best, while 'I Need You Tonight' is his best blend of funk yet, nailing a feel-good sound that will implore feet to dance and hips to sway. Aside from the lag in the centre of the album, this is a solid display and reminder of what the 'You Give Me Something' hit-maker is capable of.

James Morrison - An impressive list of global celebrities, including Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue, Wayne Rooney, Jessie J, Sarah Jessica Parker and Tinie Tempah are supporting Matalan's Christmas charity campaign by modelling their new Alphabet Scarves in aid of Alder Hey Children's Hospital. The famous personalities, as well as patrons, ambassadors and patients of Alder Hey, have shown their support for the campaign by wearing the scarves with their initial displayed as a collegiate style appliqué letter. Jason Hargreaves, Managing Director at Matalan, said: "Family is at the heart of everything we do at Matalan so a partnership with Alder Hey Children's Hospital was a perfect fit for us. "We're extremely excited to be working on such a special project together this Christmas that will help us to raise much needed funds for the hospital whilst offering our customers a perfect gift for their loved ones." The Alphabet Scarves, which have also been modelled by the likes of Helen Mirren, Rod Stewart, Tinie Tempah and Bruce Forsyth, are on sale in Matalan stores across the UK and online at www.Matalan.co.uk priced at £10 and £5 for children, with 100% of profits going straight to Alder Hey. Available in a variety of vibrant winter colours for women, men and children, the scarves feature a collegiate style appliqué letter prefect for gifting loved ones this Christmas. The money raised by Alphabet Scarves will go towards a new state-of-the-art children's hospital, education and research centre 'Alder Hey in the Park'. Planned to open in 2015, Europe's only children's 'hospital in a park' will bring together excellent care, technology and design to provide the best possible healing environment for children and their families. Coupled with first class teaching and research the hospital will be designed to attract the best talent in the world.

Suggs and Sly & Robbie performed 'Cecilia' for the first time since they produced it back in the 1980s, and were joined on stage by the father of Reggae, Ernest Ranglin as well as the other artists to perform the hit track by Madness 'It Must Be Love'. As well as joining their peers on stage, these established legends also performed with new kids on the block Max Stone and Elli Ingram who has just recently been signed by Island Records.
