What's the story?
NEVER SAY NEVER (THE REMIXES) is the soundtrack from the documentary movie of the same name, highlighting the rise to fame of teen singing sensation Justin Bieber. The album includes seven tunes, all but one of which feature a huge guest star -- like Usher, Miley Cyrus, and Kanye West, to name a few. As usual, Bieber's lyrics are squeaky clean, with no graphic language or adult references beyond a kiss or two. It's another entry in the long list of Bieber albums that are great choices for both younger and older kids.
Is it any good?
Though Bieber's typically solid vocals come through on each of these tunes, the album includes a few particular standouts. "Runaway Love," his collaboration with West and Raekwon, is an infectious combination of sweet singing and salty rapping, while "Up" (featuring Chris Brown), is an example of two equally talented vocalists lending their chops to make one great track.
