Aside from the Greatest Hits and the Christmas albums I have every other Joe album. I was counting the days and until the release date...the wait was worth it. If you're a Joe fan already, then you will love this album as Joe's sound on this album is amazing. True R&B. if you aren't a Joe fan, then what are you waiting for? Joe, though underrated, is by far one of the best singers out there. An unbelievable talent! A friend of mine asked me to give a rating of the album on a scale of 1 to 10. I said it was too early to rate it, as I had just gotten the CD and had only listened to it once on the way home from the store when asked for the rating. So rough estimate, I said 8 after listening once. That 8 is becoming a10 the more I listen to it. This album will make you remember what real music sounds like.

The new Joe album....... %^$&&&! I said to myself that this must be weak. Wrong! Joe, I have much respect for you! Not only did your change up your style you place it in a way that you knew would benefit your vocals. Double Back is perfection! I can't put it in any other way! He took an old vintage sound twisted it up with a flavor that you must hear. While using live instruments and smooth vocals, he recreated in my opinion a new sound. He has a classic duet with Fantasia that will be played for a long time. He took the 70's atmosphere and placed you into a time museum of R&B utopias. That is the only way I can explain it. The only cut that I didn't care for that much was Magic City outside of that this album will be played in my radio for a long, long time. If you liked the Signature album, this album will definitely have you shaking your head again!
Joe, I have heard a lot of artist and I will say that you are in the elite top 5 bar none! I just wish that you and R. Kelly could put aside your differences and make a duet album! I would call EASY NIGHTS! This album is another classic!

This is R 'n B singer-songwriter Joe's 10th studio album titled 'Doubleback Evolution Of R 'n B' (12 tracks). The album is produced by the California based D. O. A. Joe still has a great vocal range that he demonstrates in this new CD release: e.g. wonderful high pitched vocals in the sweet slow-tempo/ballad track "Love & Sex" (a beautiful orchestral base track, great melody and a duet featuring Idols winner Fantasia), low range vocals as in the track "Magic City" and goes through his full vocal range as in the track "Compromise". He has great harmonies as in wonderful opening track "Something For You" (a wonderfuf track with great melody and an incredible horn section arrangements in this track: horns thrown in inteligently at appropriate intervals. Great job well done!) & the first single "I'd Rather Have A Love" and overall entertaining romantic lyrics as in the beautiful closing/title track "Double Back" (wonderful orchestral base track, great melody and lyrics about taking one's lover for granted until the lover is lost or gone).

Stand-outs/gems/my favourites are "Something For You", "Love & Sex" & the title track "Double Back". The album has some highs and lows but on overall good compositions, great execution of the music and good production by D.O.A.

Singer-songwriter Joe still has got it in this new 10th studio CD release 'Doubleback Evolution Of R 'n B', a recommended CD listening.

If you're a fan of r&b music and have been disappointed by the genre the past few years, you must get this album. I've been a fan of Joe basically since day one- I've been listening to this guy for nearly 20 years now. He's always had talent, but it takes time to refine, hone, and grow talent into focused, disciplined, mature art. If you listened to his "signature" album four years ago, it was an unveiling- a Joe with talent, depth and polish you probably hadn't realized he had. This album builds on everything he accomplished with that album, yet is more focused, disciplined and polished. In a phrase, this album is "state of the art" in terms of being the zenith of current r&b talent. Granted that in itself isn't saying a whole lot- this genre has been lost and confused since the late 90's. But, Joe is calling on classical influences in finding his own sweet spot and setting the standard for what r&b music should embody right now. I can't say enough how impressive it is to see how far Joe has come in his career- a talented young player with swag become refined and polished enough to be the standard bearer of the genre. "Easy," once heard will be the r&b track of the genre. His comfort and mastery of the emotion involved in this song is simply breathtaking. The landmark album of the 2000-2009 era was D'angelo's "Voodoo" album. This decade? This album is an easy early pick. More food for thought- if you followed Marvin Gaye early in his career you know he started out in the 50's doing doo wop stuff, then went on to be the godfather of modern r&b. Joe started out as a talented young player following the crowd in the New Jack Swing era and has emerged as the one singular talent that could very well save the genre. Think about it.
