Folks, 'Doubleback" is his finest effort since those earlier days. The tracks will have your head nodding the moment you hear them. This is quality throughout. Some songs need a few listens, but overall I don't think there's a rotten track on the whole album.
I absolutely love it & I've been playing it religiously ever since I've put it into my CD player. This is true R&B at its best, for people who remember what good soul music is all about. If you're a real Joe fan, you really can't afford to miss this.
Well done JOE!
Miguel has reminded people what this genre should sound like, Tyrese - Ginuwine - Tank want to do the same. Joe is back to the basics and songs like the lead single "I'd rather have love" or "Mary Jane" - my favourite so far - are proof of it. As far as uptempo tracks, "Compromise" is a perfect number and "1 to 1 ratio" is ideal for lounge bars or soundtrack to your barbecue or Sunday dinner.
All been said, I feel that DOUBLEBACK is superior that his last 3 previous efforts - THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE SEXY / SIGNATURE / NEW MAN - but a step in the right direction. As far as evolution goes, sometimes one has to take a step back before jumping forward. He is done exactly that...
When i pressed play and the first track, "Something For You" started i was all like, "this isn't Joe! I know Joe's vocal ability extremely well being a 19 year supporter, so i could tell that his vocals have become even finer and stronger than it already was. It was a very pleasant surprise indeed. This track has an amazing fiery oomph of a start to it and quite frankly i rewound the first 25 seconds four times until i let the track continue. "This track really is a smooth soulful number to listen to with the way it begins."
Throughout the album there are some sweet tasting musical and lyrical surprises to boot, what with "1 to 1 Ratio," "Doubleback," "Mary Jane," "Magic City," and "Baby" being my top favourites with "Something For You," and of course the #1 introduction single to the album, "I'd Rather Have A Love" - I just see us together *day dreaming*.
"Love & Sex" is also another strong song to my liking, featuring the powerful vocals of Fantasia Burrino. This was a great collaboration for this particular song. Joe definitely picks his collaborations very well so you know he's rooted in his game very well.. Joe is a definite romantic for doing this song. It just shines so much and the meaning is strong and on point.
Joe really took this Doubleback project seriously and stripped it down naked to what real R&B must be. This is what we all needed from an artist who can truly sing and put out the lyrics and production how it should be done and heard. Joe is perpetual and my love for him as an individual and his music is also perpetually true in high and genuine forms.
Overall, this album comes as a major and divine contentment to my ears. This is a masterpiece of an album, and it is about time he received a BET Award for his 20 years of experience and efforts towards the music he produces, the way he sings so wonderfully well, the lyrics he writes, and as well as his long standing poise in the music industry. For me, this is Joe's best album to date. I knew it was gonna be a banger by the way he talked about it. Gosh, i love this man to bits, and God has continually blessed his ability and poise to carry on and get better and better with his game every time.
Well Done to my boy Joe for an amazing 10th album.The best album to date!!
