It's rather complicated lol.

I think Joe needs to reference his classical style on the next album to keep hold of the PSTOS fans. But I would like Joe to do a album of KILLER songs, as many originals as possible, ballads and some more pop/rock kind of styles like Affirmation.  I would like Joe to do a 2 CD album, one for the classical stuff and one for the other songs.  I would love an acoustic song or two with just a piano or guitar, or any other lush instrument.

I want Joe and team Joe to work very hard on this album, found/co-written some of the best songs since sliced bread, good production.  And I want us all, as well as the world to love it!

Not asking for much am I? And I clearly haven't thought about it at all.  :ilovejoe:

I would love an album with about 14 tracks: 12 is just too short for a gorgeous voice like his, and 13 is bad luck  :haha:

I guess he would talk about family, friends and home when writing songs, as it is important for him. But there is most probably much more that we don't know about him, and it will be interesting to see what he chooses to sing about.
I would love to hear him sing a song in the rythm and pop/rock style of affirmation.
He needs to have a couple of big lush pop love ballads
Would be good to have Big River on there. I think it would go down really well. It wouldn't have to be the exact same version that is on the DVD Big River Big Song. They could fiddle with the arrangement a bit, although I love it as it is. That could be the only cover on the album.
We need new, new, new and more new material.

I would love to hear another classical song, but I don't know how it would fit with a pop album.

Anyhow, a pop/rock album is definitely what I would like to hear next.

I'm with Hayley on this Joe needs to keep the fans he picked up on PSTOS and by just doing a pop album I fear he would loose some fans. Want the majority of the album to be originals along the lines of Open Arms,Love Story. A 2 CD album as Hayley said is a great idea, more Joe to listen too. :D

For me personally I would be happy with either pop or classical as I just adore Joe voice. :swoon:

it would be great for the fans, to have a 2 cd album.
I wonder if anyone has ever done anything like this: 1 pop cd, 1 classical in the same box...

Don't think so, first time for everything.

Some people have experimented with the uptempo vs ballads double CD album.  Beyonce and Nelly are two I can think of off the top of my head.

i agree with hayley too --- i dont feel joe can leave the classics and the fans joe has made from PSTOS -- so  like the idea of the  2 cd album -- one classic cd/ 1 pop / ballads cd too --- and  a bit of accoustics  too/ a bit of all things joe -- and a song or two written by joe originals ( or joe co written) :ilovejoe:

 :goodpost: I also agree with Hayley a 2 CD album would be ideal one with classical and one with pop ballads and rock/pop would keep fans of both genres happy, and hopefully well written originals. Great idea, Hayley, lets hope Decca have the same idea.

George Michael was another one. Double album one for the soul and one for the feet, ballad and uptempo. Great album!!

Nope, funnily enough we didn't talk that much about the next album with Joe when we spoke to him on tour, covered lots of conversations but not really that lol.

If I get a chance to chat to him I will bring it up.  :thumbsup:

I like the idea of 2 CDs, not as a double album, but as 2 separate albums - a pop-leaning album and a classical-leaning album, with the classical album being a "plan B" in case the pop album doesn't do very well.  If the pop album is a success, then the classical album could be released later in the year, which would be timely if PSTOS is back on.  It would take too long to produce 24-28 songs especially with a lot of new songs.

I hope they produce an album with the intention of promoting it in America.  That straight away will mean no falsettos.  If they can't picture him singing it on an American TV show, then don't waste time recording it.

Joe certainly needs new killer songs to avoid being seen as someone who just does covers or classic songs. We've seen the effect he has on sales of the original artists' versions so it's high time he got this benefit for himself.  He also needs some of them to be great pop songs (a la Adele) to get radio AirPlay and also press coverage. I see very little about Joe in the media so that needs addressed somehow.
Adam Lambert in the USA is an interesting comparison-he has co-written his second album (after an acknowledged rushed first album which didn't show his voice to its best) and his fans there hope this album will get him the respect he deserves. Difference is Adam is on the Leno and Ellen shows getting max promo. Joe needs to be the singer and guest on some national evening shows when he does have a great song to showcase.
