After starting off his career as a experimental electronic artist, Jamie Lidell over the past few years has taken an unlikely path in his music career towards that of a neo-soul singer. If his 2005 album reflected his first step towards soul, his most recent 2008 album Jim solidified his complete transition toward R&B.
The featured track today, "Out of My System," is a prime example of what the simplification of his style has done for the quality of his music. As he has focused less on his experimentation and more on his songwriting, tracks like this have been written. In fact, there are no signs of his previous styles here, only the acoustic, simple, soul sounds coming from Lidell's heart.
