    AAAARRGGHH! I GOT ONE!!!

    Post by Hikoi on Tue Dec 08, 2009 3:49 pm

    Just got a call from my local music shop, they closed in 15 minutes and they've just got the album in!!! I'm there in 5 minutes and wooohhooo! Its in my hot little hands! muah!muah!muah!

    My favourites (on the car ride home, I only got to hear black box, purple rain, the climb, mans world & think of me...)
    is.. think of me and mans world. And now I have to go to squash!!! sob! So just had enough time to type this little bit.

    Think of me is slightly reminiscent of the songs from that album The Big Chill. Its swinging but laid back beat suits his whiskey timbered voice perfectly!
    I'm sorry, I really gotta go...Its awesome!!

    Gotta a call from my Sis, she picked one up for me, yeahhhh!
    I got her to play the whole album on Skype and 1st impressions I love it!

    Especially his song with Guy Sebastian...AWESOME!!
    It really does suit Stan, a soul song, reminisent of the old school songs, Motown, yet with a modern beat.
    I thought it would be a slow song, but its not.
    They really did well and it should become a hit!

    Also loved Amazing Grace, which appropriately finishes the Album.
    I think he sings it better than on Idol.

    Could add a lot more, but have to go pick it up and listen to it again, properly.

    SPOILER!!!???

    I dont know if I should be writng this so early, but its not like its a movie or a book, right?.. Anyway, its only my opinion,and its not a review. your feelings may in fact vary when you listen to the album...



    Well I listened to the rest of the album, its awesome!


    1. Black Box- yeah, I'm soo liking this song more and more...

    2. Purple Rain-a little bit popcorny (wanted it moodier and grittier),seemed more Sony than Stan

    3. The Climb- yeah its popcorny but he owned it, he showcased more of that incredible voice and impeccable timing

    4. Mans World- owned it, started very controlled, but HE'S carrying the song, and not relying on the music to help him, beautiful!

    5. Think of Me- Chhheeaarr,definitely my favourite, its got a cool beat with a bit of groove in there, a bit like "heard in on the grapevine."

    6. Ordinary People- gorgeous, beautiful and soulful

    7. Lets Stay Together- Oh yeah!, cruisy

    8. Hallelujah- didnt include my favourite harmonising part, but still awesome, beautiful backup music and vocals

    9. Superstar-sniff, I wanna cry, its lovely, especially love his "stronger" voice

    10. We will Rock You- Very good, but never my favourite so I didnt have high expectations (I sound snobby! Shocked, where's my chauffeur??? )

    11. Amazing Grace- Beautiful, beautiful way to end the album... nice to end with a song that doesnt quite strain his vocals.

    (thats my only teeny, tiny wish, I'd love some more songs with the calmer,lower tone to them)


    Beautiful album, usually you'll get about 3-4 good songs on an album, this one has so many you are spoilt for choice. Go out and get it!!! AWESOME!!

    i have to agree with you about We Will Rock U. I wish they'd put in Nothing Else Matters instead......i'm gonna be whinny about this for some time.

    and do you need to doubt that we'd get the album? lol!

    Your'e right. The song is only 1min 50, but it isnt taken from the shows recordings, the vocal harmonising is different in places.
    Actually I never noticed, but the songs arent really long. Whats the norm length for a song?

    Black Box -3:28
    Purple Rain -3:16
    The Climb -3:36
    Mans World -2:42
    Think of Me -3:42
    Ordinary Peole -2:57
    Lets Stay Together -2:49
    Hallelujah -2:48
    Superstar -3:27
    We Will Rock you -1:50
    Amazing Grace -3:21

    there's no 'norm' length for a song, it varies. but usually they're about 3 to 4 minutes. that's average. Stan's recordings are most likely different lengths to the originals coz the songs have been arranged differently, like how he performed them on Idol. that's my understanding anywayz.

    Hey Josephine,

    Me too! Im err older, lol, and I love old school songs.
    This Think of Me is my favourite at the mo..

    Stan should collaborate with Guy Sebastian more, get him to produce his albums. Guy played alot of the instruments and backup vocals and has a real feel for the type of song that suits Stan.
    Black box was alright and Stan did a good job, but it dosent showcase his voice like this song does.

    Yay it sounds awesome guys!! I can't wait to get a copy! I've already listened to 'Think Of Me' on the bandit snippets and I'm already loving it, it will be a fan favourite. This album has number 1 potential written all over it :cheers:

    I like think of me not a duet though , Guy does backing vocals. Not sure why it was being advertised as being a duet, def prefer that sound to Black Box :-)
