I was Blunt’s instrument
Caroline Sullivan, The Guardian, 21 July 2005
"DOUBLE WHAMMY for Blunt," says a headline in this week's issue of trade magazine Music Week, acknowledging the fact that songwriter James Blunt is at No 1 in the album and single charts. "Whammy", for once, is right. The album, Back to Bedlam, is the second biggest seller of the year after Coldplay's X&Y, and the single, 'You're Beautiful', is a genuine phenomenon, having made its way to No 1 gradually, via word of mouth, rather than (as is now usual) going straight in on a crest of hype.
