I didn't think Justin's "Believe" album could get any better - and then he releases this! One word - WOW! This album has emotion, fun and pure passion written all over it. I am already a fan of acoustic songs, so when this was released, I was very happy and he hasn't left me disappointed.
Now a quick review of each song:
"Boyfriend" - Stripped down to the basics and my favourite acoustic song off of the album! His voice sounds smooth and flawless throughout.
"As Long As You Love Me" - With the original song being up-tempo and pumping, Justin has slowed this song right down for the acoustic and gets to show off his voice - including performing the rap himself, which sounds great.
"Beauty And A Beat" - "Beauty And A Beat" is already a good song, but, to be honest - I do prefer this version more! It doesn't include the signature rap, but even without, it sounds great and the guitar really works behind it and replaces the dubstep sections with cool sounding riffs.
"She Don't Like The Lights" - You can really hear the passion in Justin's voice during this song including using his own voice for backing vocals. Great track!
"Take You" - There isn't much difference between this version and the original version off of the "Believe" album, but the ad-libs that Justin shows off really gives this song a great feel and shows, once again, his passion.
"Be Alright" - Accompanied by piano AND guitar this time, the already beautiful song, "Be Alright", has been transformed into a happier, but emotional performance by Justin that feels like he's really speaking out to all the people that need someone right now.
"All Around The World" - The varying tempo and vocals on this version of "All Around The World" really makes a big change to the original which is mainly dubstep and creates a completely new feel to the song. Fantastic!
"Fall" Live - The fact that this song has been recorded completely live really does prove to the doubters that Justin can sing - just him and a guitar. A great version of the already beautiful song, "Fall".
"Yellow Raincoat" - This is a brand new song by Justin Bieber. Justin's voice is very smooth and creates an almost Drake-feel to it. Simple arrangement and lyrics, but very effective.
"I Would" - Another brand new song! This song brings a happy, up-beat feel to the album, compared to the relaxed feel of the acoustic songs.
"Nothing Like Us" - This is definitely now in my list of favourite songs of ALL time. There's something about this that really pulls at the heart strings as he tells his feelings towards his ex, Selena Gomez and the arrangement of the whole song is just beautiful.
DEFINITELY a must buy for any Belieber AND doubters. It will convert you! This album really shows off Justin's mature voice and is a just a feel-good album. Brilliant follow-up from the "Believe" album! Love it.
