When listening to “Acoustic Love” by crooner Joonie, there is a sense of warmth, love, happiness, and beauty. This cd is definitely a gem that needs to be appreciated and cherished. From beginning to end, every song is personal and exudes a sense of connection between Joonie and the songs. Joonie is the perfect example of an artist who is musically deionized, void of all the impurities that hinder many artists today. He stays true to who he is and it resonates throughout every song.
For someone who originally didn’t get into the business to sing, his voice is as comforting as a lullaby, mesmerizing and breathtaking. While his voice and musical capabilities shine through, the lyrics are what really draw you in, causing you to meditate on love and life.
The song “Love you more” is the epitome of a love song. Stripped from everything superficial, Joonie sings about being in love with a woman. With her “beauty flowing inside and out,” it’s evident that he is experiencing pure, unadulterated love. Diamond rings and all of the other material things do not matter to him. All he wants to do is love her more and more.
Another breathtaking song on the album is “Just the way you are.” On this song there is nothing but Joonie and a piano. With each chord you are drawn in more and more. The song is about accepting a person you love for who they really are. Their imperfections are what make you love them. “When you think of love just think of me cuz I’m not going anywhere.” This would be the perfect song to serenade your significant other with.
The song “Stalker” is different from “Love you more” and “Just the way you are.” It features a nice beat that will have you bobbing your head. While the beat is nice, it’s not overpowering and it doesn’t take away from the singing.
Overall, this album is just amazing! Joonie has totally shown how diverse he is. There is no reason why a Joonie song is not on the radio. Frederick Delius said it best, “Music is an outburst of the soul.” Joonie has poured out his heart and soul on “Acoustic Love.” There isn’t a label that could describe this album. It’s not R&B, Pop, or Soul, it’s just great music.
