Nate James - Kingdom Falls

Sexy melodies draw you in modestly, until unsuspectingly you're hit by hard pop base lines that get you head nodding, all the while being serenaded by John Legend/Robin Thicke-like vocals. While this can be said for most of the 17 tracks, the album isn't really as boring as you might expect.

Lyrically Kingdom Falls doesn't run that deep and can be best put to use as background tunes for your headphones at work. Nonetheless, if you're a Nate James fan you'll love it. If not, don't bother.

It's easy Sunday soul listening you won't easily tire of during the rest of the week.

Literally off the success of Set the Tone - profits from the independent artist's debut album were used to record Kingdom Falls - British soul singer Nate James has put together a funky mix of soulful urban tracks.
