Overall critical reception has been mixed, with Allmusic saying, in a positive review, that “Some Kind of Trouble is a step in the right direction for Blunt, a move toward love songs free of pretension” whilst BBC Music felt “When all’s said, Some Kind of Trouble is not a terrible record by any means, but there’s little sense that Blunt has advanced, and equally little sense that it’ll make any difference to his bottom line.
Blunt has just finished recording his fourth studio album, entitled Moon Landing, as revealed by the singer in an email to fans. It is due for release in October 2013 and will feature production from Back to Bedlam producer Tom Rothrock.
