Straight in at the top of the charts with your debut album is always a dangerous place to go.

Before most people have even heard of you the media backlash has begun. But the money poured into James makes it look as though he'll weather the storm as mums and Mondeo men take the soulful swoon of his debut single You Give Me Something to their hearts.

The 21-year-old's soulful, raspy voice is enigmatic and distinctive, and when married to a memorable tune sounds like best-seller status is a deserved, foregone conclusion.

But much of the album flounders, trapping James' stunning voice in a mediocre soup of indifferent melodies.
