Has anyone else checked out Josh Groban's new CD, Awake?

It was playing in Barnes & Noble the last time I was there, and I fell in love instantly. I headed straight to the music section and bought it :teehee:

My favorite song would definitely be "You Are Loved (Don't Give Up)", but all the songs are amazing.

OHHH my goodness!

This is absolutely one of my FAVOURITE albums EVER. :P I have all of Josh's CDs, but this one has to be my favourite of his. There's just something so beautiful about it. A...different beautiful than his previous work. :P

It's been out for a while, but I remember the first time I heard "You Are Loved (Don't Give Up)" I ran out and bought it the first chance I got. :P That song is probably my favourite too! It's just so heart-warming and hope-giving. :P I listen to it every time I feel down. XD Works every time. :P

"Now Or Never", "So She Dances", "In Her Eyes" and "February Song" are also among my favourites.

:) *SQUEEE* I just love Josh! *SQUEEE* :)

I have a few of his songs on the computer and I really like them. I'm actually downloading a whole heap of them now, as I have heard about the song "Don't Give Up" but I've never actually listened to it. Hopefully in a few moments I'll know what the album is like. :D

I love this album. :) I really like his other albums too, but this is probably my favorite.

February Song would have to be my favorite; not only on this album, but out of everything I've ever heard him do. I also am very attached to You Are Loved (Don't Give Up). That one is so inspiring!

Apparently he released a special edition version of this CD, which had another track or two on it, including the actual song Awake that he did. I managed to find it on YouTube, and it's beautiful too; I wish it had been on the normal version of the album.

Aw, my dear Josh's album. :hug:

It's a treasure, it really is! :D I bought the special internet edition, and it inclues the two bonus tracks Verita and Awake, as well as one exclusively on the internet edition, Smile. And a behind-the-scenes look at the making of, the photoshoot, and the video shoot. :)

I love "Awake" the most, but every single track is just... :swoon:

Thanks for the heads up Taurquende! Somehow I missed these songs! And they are all awesome!
Here are some links if any other Groban fans are as out of touch as I am (not likely!) and would like to take a look (esp the translation of Verita):

Smile: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mT8jqRZHUW8
Verita: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2IvIe3wyI4o

Ooh, I will definitely have to check out those other "special" songs then! :) Thanks for the links Sinbearer ;) [I can't check them out now, though, because I'm at school and I think youtube is blocked :annoyed2: ]

I'm glad to hear there are others out there who love this album (although I was sure there was...:P)!

:P Awww, that's too bad that you don't get to listen to them right away. They're really good!

XD I do actually have the Special Edition. But the funny thing is, when I bought it, I didn't realize it was the Special Edition until I brought it home. XD Ha ha ha ha! Way to go, me! ;) :duh: But what a LOVERLY surprise! :P Especially the behind-the-scenes stuff that Taur mentioned. Ha ha ha ha ha! Now I want to go watch it! :P

Hurray for Josh! :bounce:

I got it last month, it's just awesome! Josh is such a great singer. "February song" is probably my favourite from this album.
Thanks for the links, Sinbearer! I didn't know the songs before.

And yes, he has hot hair. :P

My favorite songs are So She Dances, Machine, and February Song.

Machine is probably the best song of his...my opinion

I haven't heard all the songs on this cd, but I have heard some. I really really like 'February Song', 'Un Giorno per Noi', and 'You are Loved'. I haven't got around to buying it yet, but I want to! [and oooo yes, I love the Italian ones! they're just... :swoon:]
