Jamie Cullum is a perfect example of the sort of music bought by people who don't really like music very much. They buy things like Coldplay and James Blunt and Katie Melua. Bland, inoffensive sort of stuff.

That is why stuff like Cullum comes in for 'stick'. 

Blimey i find myself in total agreement with you notaclue

it's worth having a few of those albums for entertaining guests though.

there's no point in letting them hear good stuff. may as well let them hear the shite they'd normally buy and listen to on their £20 alba.

even the crap stuff is nearly listenable on a good system. :cool:

Ah well, since I have zero musical credability anyway I'll own up to quite liking Twentysomething. He's not the greatest singer but I find his enthusiasm entertaining.

For info last nights Radio 2 Big Band Special features him singing mainly songs from his new album, and you'll be able to hear this via the BBC website for the next week. I had a listen this morning so thought I'd better reply to this thread ;).
