CD REVIEW! Justin Bieber - Believe

Wow! Justin Bieber is all grown up! "Believe," his third full-length album, is a 13-track set that shows that Bieber, now 18, is growing as a musician, and the result is enjoyable. The CD showcases Justin’s vocal range and wide array of styles. He co-wrote every single song on the album with the exception of “Beauty And A Beat”.  The tone of the album all around is rather laid back – “chill” if you will. Most of it isn’t the high-pitched noise of “Baby” and “Somebody to Love”, but rather the cool tone of lead single “Boyfriend”. He has come such a long way from his hit “Baby”. If you thought his fan base was huge before, Believe will only garner him more. The deluxe physical package will contain an additional three tracks: “Out Of Town Girl,” “She Don’t Like The Lights,” and “Maria.”
Our verdict: A grown up Justin surprises us with a mature album that is actually worth taking him seriously.
Others say: It's cosmopolitan pop sophistication, designed to make this the Bieber album 18-and-over folks can like.
