POLL: ROUND 12 | Here's What I Believe Album Survivor
« on: November 07, 2015, 04:06:26 PM »
Back again! We now visit the latest full studio album from Joe, Here's What I Believe. The album came off the back of the huge Classic era, an era that spun big album sales. How would he follow the success of that? The answer, throwing everything and anything at the wall and seeing what stuck. The album divided opinion, tracks that people despised, grew to love and and everything in between. It became a messy campaign, single without video, promotion that didn't really work and it seemed like the public weren't here for this album. :glum:

So this is where you come in. Which of the tracks are you still loving and which deserve to be thrown out of the Joesphere? I am sure this series will be explosive, it seems we've all got something to say (good or bad) about this era..

First round, have your say! :)

for me it's when I need you. I just don't like it.

Joe is such an inspiration to me, and I am so proud to be a fan of his! Supporting him always! :)

BYE, 'When I Need You'! :cry:

16th: When I Need You (7/19 - 36.8%)



Joe's voice is like a silk and velvet sheet upon your skin...so SMOOTH :inlove:

I LOVE this song very much :blush1: I hate to admit it, but this sappy song gets me every damn time I hear it. I swear listening to it is like traveling through time back to the days when nothing mattered but having a good time. :blush1:

P/s I just found out that the chorus of this song is actually identical to the part of Leonard Cohen's song "Famous Blue Raincoat".The line "When I need you, I just close my eyes and I'm with you, and all that I so want to give you, is only a heart beat away" is the part "Jane came by with a lock of your hair, she said that you gave it to her that night that you planned to go clear". I loved Cohen's song, but I could never figure out what it reminds me of...

What :jawdrop:  You always surprise me  :glum:
Sad to see When I Need You go. I think a few too many people are tainted by the original which I'll admit is a bit marmite.

Your Voice it is again then :)

His voice is the highlight here, some of the best vocals on the album.

I agree, the vocals are brilliant - they invariably are. It's just the song that is lacking.

Time for E Penso to go. Another of the classical crossovers :)
