4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not quite wonderful October 8, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Joe McElderry now has several albums to his credit. I have them all, and I find this new one - Here's What I Believe - to be very good. But I have reservations. It seems Joe is taking the center out of his voice. This limits his ability to project text particularly on the bottom. Diction used to be one of his best traits. Not so here. "Skyscraper" and "Here We Love" are totally unintelligible at the beginnings. "Skyscraper" also emerges as "Skah-ee-scape-uh" (two distinct syllables for the first) that starts to bug me by the time I get to the end of the song."Here's what I Believe" has only about 15% percent diction.

"My Love Will Find You" shows how good Joe can be. It is true that today young male singers take the breathy (sexy?) way of voice production, but I couldn't help but think what Andy Williams (recently departed) might have done with these same songs. Joe can't just sing notes and words, no matter how well, without connecting to what he's singing. His voice sounds somewhat thin, not the way he sounded on "The Climb" at all.

The producers still insist in burying Joe's voice at times with too much orchestra. They did that with Susan Boyle, too. So far Joe's voice still sounds healthy, but I hope he's taking lessons from someone good.

I give the album 4 stars for what it is, omitting the one star because it could have been so much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!! September 27, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A well done album. great tracks from beginning to end. He was the winner of the British X Factor, and from Pop Star to Opera Star. His album from X factor was not what Joe should have been singing, and his albums on the Decca label are. Kudo's to Decca for knowing how to produce this fine singer.

Have followed Joe since his beginning and Winning of England's X Factor, This young man has a VOICE!, I forgot to also to state, he won from a Rock Star to an Opera Star too! Joe can sing anything including a Phone book, and have you enjoy it. I feel that Joe has not recorded a "TURKEY" album yet! I enjoying this album and just waiting on his next one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite Good October 7, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I discovered Joe through his youtube videos. Unfortunately, he is virtually unknown in the USA. For some reason, his voice appears to have become higher since his X-Factor days when it was deeper and richer. Overall, this is a very good CD. The standouts for me are:
Somethin's Gotta Hold of My Heart. This is a much better version than the original. It showcases Joe's voice perfectly and on this track, his voice is closer to his X-Factor days in terms of huskiness. The arrangement is gorgeous with sweeping violins. I give this track A+. Skyscrpaer is equally beautiful, again with a great arrangement and approach. Again, an A+ for this track. Love Of My Life presents a great interpretation of the Queen song, A+. When I Need You and I Don't Want To Talk About It receive A. These are beautifully interpreted by Joe. To have A Broken Heart is a beautiful ballad and receives B+, as do How We Love, What Have I Done?, and I Look To You, the latter being a Josh Groben-like ballad. The title track, Here's What I Believe, receives a C. It seems to lack a catchy hook or melody and perhaps Joe should have chosen one of the catchier tracks for the single. What Have I Done, in my opinion, would have been a better choice if he preferred to choose a track penned by him. Also a C is the lovely E Penso A Te simply due to the lack of flow of his Italian. Refer to the many outstanding Italian recordings of the great Connie Francis where the italian sounds natural and dramatic.
I am enjoying this CD a great deal. I've listened to the entire CD twice and I feel that with additional listens it will grow on me even more. Very good job!
