    Are you mentally incapable? “nobody” is a pretty odd statement to be throwing around when he still has fans…. At least say some people. There is your first fault. Second of all when you are talking about POSSESSION ie HIS career you have to say Justin Bieber’s.. Third of all, what exactly is wrong with Mainstream? Ah the fact that YOU don’t like it- we’ll there is a simple solution to that- go listen to indie music? It doesn’t require you’re shit comment on OceanUp. Now the best point I found is he does cocaine… I honestly don’t think this requires any explanation because I am sure you would realise how ridiculous and outlandish that statement is once you wrote it. And the final – music is one of those amazing things in this world that unlike Maths does not have one solid answer and everyone is allowed to enjoy their own genres and artists. Just because YOU think it’s shit doesn’t mean it is, and quite frankly it’s slightly embarrassing for you thinking you have an influence on anyone’s interest, it’s pathetic… Just go enjoy you’re own shit music and well enjoy our shit music too. Easy as that.

    An artist once said (I forget who…) but ‘you’re only as good as your worst song’.
    That being said, I think only his true fans will like this album.

    I DONT CARE ABOUT HE SELLING CONCERTS, i care about QUALITY. He’ll never be like MJ, get over it, never.

    GagaAteMyHeartsaid:only beliebers think it’s perfectly amazing. which i completely understand cause he’s their idol & everything, butcome on. every artist has at least 1 bad song or album.

    So true
    Honestly
    I agree with BILLBOARD- Nothing special, but catchy.
    I was so dissapointed with “believe”song the start was terrible it could be much better …most of the songs were copy cats …I mean I really loved the style of Maria song but then I figured out its a copy of HSM song and I was like OK justin …he really needs to find his own style ofcourse he is talented Im a jonas fan but I ll never deny his talent …sadly there is only one song I still listen between All justin songs “overboard”
    lyrically “Be alright” was my type but it was so simple I already heard better versions …:|
    And seriously Why most of his songs is about his fame …like she dont like the light …maria and stuffs …I mean this is who he is but I need song to think about myself and my problems and relate to my life with help of that song not THIS …!!! I stay dissapointed until his next album …

    This is for the believers out there

    NOBODY CARES ABOUT JUSTIN BIEBER CAREER ANYMORE; he has become SO mainstream, and annoying. He’s like the male version of Taylor Swift, but he does cocaine.

    I dont care if he solds out concerts, his music WILL BE shit, like always.

    I really love this new album, I’ve recently become a fan of him and I am in love with so many songs on there. Especially Die In Your Arms, She don’t like the lights and Fall. Over all I say the album gets a 100000000000/5 in my book there isn’t really a song in my opinion that sucks on there :)

    Okay its one thing that you bash on justins cd but now people are bashing on beliebers? thats not cool im a Belieber & i would give the cd a 5/5. & its not because im a “Belieber” i mean honestly there was one song i wasnt really into but the rest is good , it just pisses me off when you people say were crazy & to obsessed? Dude hes our idol of course were gonna scream you would do the same thing. its called being “dedicated” theres a difference . In my opinion critics are the stupidest thing ever. they just talk crap about other peoples stuff.

    i respect your guys opinion though. i mean i think justin has good music . its not the worst , if you wanna hear a bad song listen to “Friday” lol thats a bad song for you xD but seriously you gotta admit justin isnt all that bad when you think about it

    Absolutely not a Belieber,
    but I defenitely love the album!
    He worked hard for it, it’s a shame he’s getting such ‘bad’ reviews..

  • Anonymous

    i’m just still on cloud nine that the drake collab made it, and the taylor swift one did not. thank you so much for that.

    oh, and most the reviews are very positive. some oare lukewarm, and pretty much none are negative.

    they basically all say that this was a solid effort for an 18 year old, and that this makes them excited for what he can do in 3 or so more years. which is really an amazing thing to say.

    THE OFFICIAL “BELIEVE” REVIEW

    1. all around the world – nothing special, pretty basic, prob bumped off a much more deserving track from the album, which is sad

    2. boyfriend – great. enough has already been said, tho im still not sick of it

    3. alaylm – very good, most ppl i play this for think it’s AMAZING and could care less that it’s by ~jusin bieber~ they just think it’s awesome. if all around the world beats out this song for the next single, that would be a big mistake. big sean was the perfect choice, plus i love him so…

    4.take u – it’s really cool. the “baby senorita” part is super pretty and pleasant

    5. right here – hands down, best song on believe. love the 90’s feel and sound, love drake, love everything about it. urban music lovers are going crazy over it, as well. i think it would make the perfect summer single in 2013

    6. catching feelings – it’s nice lol. very sweet and justin is a sweetheart in the lyrics, but it’s not exciting enough for my taste, and i usually skip it. but it is a very nice song :)

    7. fall – i loveee fall. i love it even more knowing that justin wrote it with the whole story line of a walk to remember in mind because when you listen to the progression of the song, up until the very ending, it truly takes you on an emotional journey. and it’s amazing to me that he was able to tap in to accutely to another person’s experience (albiet a fictional character) and so effectively emote through song. i’m so impressed.

    8. diya – MJ sample, adorable, brilliant, on repeat. enough said

    9. thought of you – I LOVE THIS! it’s just perfect. this is prob one of the bests on believe. it has no flaws and those lyrics are precious… only, uhh, how salty would you be if a guy said to you “i love the THOUGHT of you, but not the ACTUAL you, and when I’m over this infatuation, i’m peacing out” hahaha burrrnnn.

    10. beauty and a beat- great song. my bff said it’s perfect driving music, so i guess that’s a big compliment right? lol. nicki’s part is super cute.. i really love it

    11. one love – everyone seems to think it’s basic, but it’s very mellow, very beautiful, and lovely. idg the hate

    12. believe – love it. justin is the cutest with his fans.

    13. ootg – LOVE THIS!!! again, with the 90’s vibe. I ADORE 90’s r&b so i guess i’m biased, but this is seriously such a cool song

    14. sdltl – It’s okay.

    15. be alright – it’s okay

    16. maria – i shake my ass off to this song, i dont even care. this song is everything

    17. bf remix – eh 2 chainz and mac miller did good…

    18. fairytale – so cute :) um but idk how to say this so i’m just gonna let it out… can we please stop with the jaden smith parts?? i get so sick of editting his parts out and having a 1 minute song left lol. sorry…

    19. lmlyd – this is the jam. it’s sexy or whatever, but it’s like, a sexy lullaby haha. i love it. but what does “put me in the middle, that’s where imma start” mean? who knows…

    20. hey girl – Lol! one of my favs!! i’m mad i don’t have it! um “take those heels off and make me say uh huh”? KINKY! :P

    21. just like them – this has such a throwback feel. really good song. nothing like it out rn.

    mkay since my opinion is clearly the only one that counts… YOU’RE WELCOME!
