Rated 5 out of 5 by rocknrollerforever Josh does it again!
This album is right up to Josh Groban standards. In today's desperate attempt to create real music, usually results as comperable, at best, to a musical ménage à trois which leaves a lot to be desired. This is a welcome relief and allows one to enjoy a real talent performed by a premiere artist.
Rated 5 out of 5 by piplup Josh's Newest CD is a Huge Success!
I'm a HUGE fan of Josh Groban, so when I heard this new album was coming out, I just had to buy it. Wow, what a masterpiece! Every song on this album is amazing. It's also quite an assortment of musical genres. (Pop, Classical, Rock, Jazz, Opera, etc.# Here's a description of the songs on this album:
1# Brave: This song definitely takes the starring role of this album. It's a Pop-Rock song with phenomenal instruments and lyrics. The meaning of the song is very inspiring, To stand up and be brave, no mater what you face. In my opinion, this is one of the best songs Josh ever wrote.
2# False Alarms: Another beautiful song! I'm always fascinated by the instruments in this song every time I play it. It starts out with a gentle harp, and then transitions into an echoed piano with a deep, slow drum beat in the background.
3) Falling Slowly: A semi-slow, mellow song. The more the song progresses, the higher Josh's voice gets! It's a little repetitive and would be a great song for a slow dance.
4) She Moved Through The Fair: I love this song!! "She Moved Through The Fair" is actually a very old, traditional Irish song that Josh wanted to have on this album. The Irish theme is highlighted with bagpipes that play throughout the song. A very beautiful, mellow ballad.
5) Below The Line: What a catchy tune! It sounds very tropical or beach-like.
6) E Ti Promettero: A duet that's in Italian. It's very pretty, Josh and Laura Pausini sing very well together. #In English, the song title means "I Will Promise You"#
7) The Moon is a Harsh Mistress: This song is one of the most beautiful melodies that Josh has ever done, in my opinion. His voice is so beautiful in this song. And the instruments are very simple, just a soft piano and strings. This song will make you melt!
8) Un Alma Mas: A very nice song, sung in Spanish. I love the instruments in this one.
9) Happy In My Heartache: It's a very upbeat post breakup song. It's got a very smooth, jazzy tune to it, which is very nice!
10) Hollow Talk: This song has a very unique, almost haunting melody. The background instruments remind me of a ticking clock. The song eventually bursts into a loud symphonic arrangement.
11) Sincera: A Classical-Opera song in Italian. It's a very powerful song with an orchestra in the background. It's similar to Josh's classical songs from his first CD. #In English, the song title means "Sincere"#
12) I Believe #When I Fall In Love It Will Be Forever#: This song was originally sung by Stevie Wonder. Josh does a great job at remaking it! It starts off slow and mellow and eventually gets stronger and stronger. A chorus joins in near the end. This was a great choice for the finale of the CD!
I highly recommend this CD to any fan of Josh Groban, or just anyone who wants a fantastic assortment of songs that the whole family will enjoy! Buy this CD, it's worth every penny. :)

This cd wasnt as good as Josh's past ones, but if you love Josh like I do, it will still be worth it. I intend to always buy his work.
Rated 5 out of 5 by PMDT Love Josh Groban and couldn't find it in the local Walmart. It was much easier to order online. It arrived before the stated date. Will do more shopping online.
