  1. The fact that the end results sound similar to Go's machine-made rivals proves to be a double-edged sword, however, both attracting fans for its genuine approach and repelling others for its similarity to manufactured pop.
  2. Singing in a light, yearning voice (and, you imagine, clasping his aching heart as he does so), he achieves a sound nearly as grand and polished as theirs on a 10th of the budget (so imagine what he could do with the orchestral backing his songs demand).

    Epic pop has a new face, and it belongs to Joe 90. [Jun 2009, p.122]
  4. His attempts to be emotive or inspirational sound just wrong.
