Sam smiths voice is the most angelic voice that can make people sigh in happiness and say
my god. when he's not singing it sounds like a normal person but with the voice its like a gift from god above, he is a good representation for people in the UK people are inspired by him every single day. for people that hate Sam smith you are just jealous, but if you haven't heard him... go on YouTube now people!!! and subscribed to him as well he is very a talented person. he also was my inspiration for my first song that i wrote!!! I showed it to my friends and they thought i should keep writing more. I was so thankful of this guy he opened my door to the next step of my life to become a singer so i say listen to this album i highly recommended it if you like to borrow cds.
P.S. To seanlee if you read his bio he is only good at sad balled songs. so no its not whiny its called being a true artist and plus most of the songs he writes is based on his life. so yeah.

In the Lonely Hour is Sam Smith’s second debut studio album. With all the music on the record written majorly by Sam Smith himself, this album displays a very popular emotion many of us have felt before; heartbreak. This album is full of vivid emotion and imagery. I think that not only are the lyrics so well written and dimensional, but Sam Smith’s voice is just so soothing. While I do not think that the music on this album really reflected the amazing vocal range Smith possesses, I did still enjoy this a lot. A perfect album to listen on a particularly rainy day. I would recommend this to a friend, and I would rate this album 3.5/5.

Fabulous artist.

This guy is only 23 years old and definitely proves himself as one of those rare talented singer composer. M_ALCOTT's list is about right to me as well. BTW Smith also composed and performed the upcoming James Bond SPECTRE theme song ‘Writing's On The Wall'. See video link to Stay With Me.

I think Sam has a beautiful singing voice. And my top 5 songs are:
1. Stay with Me
2. I'm Not the Only One
3. Leave Your Lover
4. Lay Me Down
5. I've Told You Now

Wonderful CD, talented musician....

Was quite disappointed. Only song I like on this album is "Stay with Me". The rest sounded scratchy and whiny.
