In The Lonely Hour

When a single shoots from obscurity to SNL, the Top 40, and your favorite indie radio station all in a couple weeks, just like Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" did, the anticipation for (and pressure on) the full album release is going to be massive. Luckily, the singer's full-length debut, In the Lonely Hour ($10), delivers, as Smith's unique and nimble voice deftly moves from mid-tempo ballads to the super groovy "Money on My Mind," from a lovely bass to an unreal falsetto. But don't worry: the subject matter never gets more upbeat - it's all lonely times for Smith, at least for now.
