REVIEWS
Average points: 3.38 (Reviews: 64)
***
Sehr emotional gesungener Pop-Titel, der mich aber weitgehend kalt lässt - wie bislang so vieles von dem, was James Arthur veröffentlicht hat. Ist immer derart krass auf die große Emotion abzielend, dass mich die Musik letztlich meist kalt lässt.

Gute 3.
****
Solider neuer Track von James Arthur. Schön gesungen und süsse Lyrics. Insgesamt aber leider doch etwas fade und nicht ganz das, was ich von ihm hören möchte. 4* liegen allerdings doch relativ locker drin.
****
Recht schön gemacht.
*****
Eine sehr schöne Nummer von James.
Einigen Leuten wird das vielleicht zum schwärmen bringen, mich überzeugt es stimmlich total, aber sonst ist es eher eine durchschnittliche Ballade, die aber noch Luft nach oben hat.
Könnte gut möglich sein das mir diese Nummer mit der Zeit besser gefällt! Vorerst 4*+

edit: gefällt mir besser als zuvor! Verdient ein Hit! 5*

Aangename muziek van deze James Arthur.

▒ Een mooie zang & gitaar ballad uit eind augustus 2016 door de 38 jarige Britse zanger en muzikant die de negende reeks van de Britse uitvoering van "The X Factor 2012", won: "James Andrew Arthur" !!! Ruim 4 sterren ☺!!!

Endlich meldet sich auch James Arthur zurück, das zweite Album "Back From The Edge" wird voraussichtlich im November erscheinen. "Say You Won't Let Go" ist ein recht guter Song, wenn auch keiner, der an die vier Singles seines Debuts rankommt. Trotzdem wünsche ich ihm viel Erfolg... und es scheint auch gut auszusehen, befindet sich "Say You Won't Let Go" doch zurzeit auf #1 bei UK iTunes... 4+*

edit: Nun endlich auf die 5*. Zurecht ein solcher Überraschungserfolg!

This is just awful. How is it #1 on UK??

ja wirklich recht hübsch gemacht und auf viel Gefühl getrimmt..aber irgendwie kommt auch mir die ganz grosse Begeisterung nicht auf

Sehr schön.

Nice song.

Whiny and just so watered down; and I just can't see myself getting into it at all unlike previously. 2.25

...gut...

I really like this and good on him for making the unthinkable comeback of second chances. I hope he keeps a clear head this time around. His second UK#1. UK#1 and Ireland#1. US#11.

I like this far more than any of his previous work. An impressive comeback. EDIT: A LOT more.

Natuurlijk hebben we het allemaal wel eens eerder gehoord, maar dit is goed gemaakt, en klinkt gewoon erg lekker.
****
Arthur is iemand die nog echte pure muziek maakt. Prima single.
***
Nein, danke
***
Ziemlich schnarchig, eine Langweiler-Nummer, sorry!
****
I'm surprised that I like this. Better than 'Impossible'.
*****
Eine wunderbare Ballade, bin positiv überrascht, dass er doch nicht von der Bildfläche verschwunden ist. Die Nr. 1 in UK ist völlig verdient, ich hoffe, der schafft es auch bei uns noch in höhere Gefilde. Gute 5.
****
De zeurderige en jankerige stem van Arthur gaat op den duur een beetje tegenstaan, maar verder is er niks mis met dit nummer.
******
Acoustic smash. Smooth FM will be playing this for years to come.
**
Ziemlich langweilig.

Mich langweilt es auch. Vor allem von der Melodie her klingt das wie 1000 andere Chart-Songs aus den letztern 10 Jahren. Gähn. 2+
****
It's an average song, but a very impressive comeback.
***
Mainly popular because people seem to have a penchant for liking uninteresting, inoffensive acoustic guitar music.

It isn't really all that bad, but not something I'd like to listen to all that often.
***
Le genre de guitare acoustique inoffensive dont les Britanniques (entre autres) semblent raffoler mais qui me laisse complètement indifférent.
****
Gepflegte Langeweile, aber Reflexionen nach durchzechter Nacht kommen bei mir immer positiv an.

Neu in unseren Top-10.
***
Seine Stimme mag ich jetzt nicht so, diese emotionalen Balladen liegen mir nicht so.
****
Für mich DIE absolut verblüffende Charts-Sensation des Jahres! Nicht weil der Song so wahnsinnig gut wäre (kriegt "nur" 4 Sterne). Sondern weil ich vor drei Jahren hätte schwören können, dass wir vom damaligen X-Factor-Sieger nichts nennenswertes mehr hören würden. Hab mich sowas von getäuscht!
*
Boring.

Be gone, demon song! The power of Christ compels you!
***
Musik wie ein 1996er Ford Mondeo - nichts Halbes und nichts Ganzes. Aber die Fans des Formatradios sind damit bestimmt trotzdem d'accord.
****
nettes lied, nett
*
Ignore my previous review, I dunno what I was thinking when I said this was alright. In hindsight, this is an utterly soppy pile of rubbish and this acoustic style of music has been done to death to the point of ad nauseum. Also overplay, and general society's obsession towards this song has annoyed the living shit out of me and made it even worse for me. I hope to never hear from James Arthur again, one of the absolute worst songs of 2017.

Glad it's out of the top 50 now though and most people have seemingly forgotten about it. His success still baffles me to this day, I don't find anything appealing about him whatsoever to be brutally honest. Was gonna edit the rating to 2 but I think I definitely hate it enough to give it a rock bottom 1 star now.

Jedes Lied von seinem neuen Album "Back From The Edge" ist ein Hit, und "Say You Wont Let Go" ist seit langer Zeit wieder einmal ein Liebeslied welches wirklich berührt und voller Hoffnung und positiven Gefühlen ist. Nicht umsonst ist es bereits in vielen Ländern der Renner in den Charts und auf Hochzeiten. Ich freu mich schon auf seine nächste Single "Safe Inside" zu Weihnachten von diesem Album. Hoffentlich kommt er wieder nach Österrreich für ein Konzert
*****
Schöner Track von Herrn Arthur.
*
boring
**
Are you kidding me?
*****
Sehr schöner, hart am Rande des Kitsches fahrender Liebessong von einem, den es offenbar ernst erwischt hat und der es nun ernst meint.
Den Song kann man sich gut bei Hochzeiten gesungen vorstellen. Da hat dann jeder Tränen in den Augen. Die Botschaft besagt ja auch nichts anderes. "Say you won't let go" ist ein etwas anders phrasiertes: "Ja, ich will."
**
Gefällt mir weniger diese Ballade.
**
ne danke.
**
Sorry, aber kann solch ein Song wirklich einen Mann gefallen? So ein verweichlichter Gesangsbrei, bei dem einen die Ohren verkleben. Die Strophen kann man noch hören.
***
3 plus ... und nicht mehr vom Balladenfreak southpaw.
****
Maybe it's because I'm the sucker for singer-songwriters, or maybe there's just a lot of hate for James Arthur around here, but the melodies in this are lovely, especially when he sings the title. I don't find James Arthur's as captivating as some others do, but this does the job and I can understand why many like it.

Okay..

I am one of those folk with autism. As far as targets for discrimination go, I'm far from being among the most unfortunate. In many situations I can get by without people even realising it's the case, giving them no means to discriminate.

But that discrimination does happen, typically online. To be autistic is an aspect that becomes exaggerated as being the lowest among those in communication, with a lack of social skills preventing you from correctly filtering your speech. To be autistic is a dismissive retort used to de-legitimise any opinion you may hold, and dehumanise you in the process.

Suffice to say I have very little respect for anyone who would hold myself, or people like me in contempt, and such a thing is only made a problem by the fact that people can freely get away with such a thing. I can't think of a single instance of someone being banished from any sort of circle for discriminating against people with autism.

James Arthur didn't do that of course. I just mention it as it gives me a way to get in the mindset of those he DID discriminate against to get a clearer perspective. If you are out of the loop, James Arthur infamously sunk his career in late 2013, when among all manner of social media gaffes where he let his ego overtake common sense, he rapped a homophobic slur, and to many people, this was unforgivable and he was shunted out of the spotlight. Having been dropped from his label and having no commercial viability in the following 3 years, it became clear that he had killed his career.

Except apparently not! He released this single last year and to the shock of many, it managed to storm to the top of the charts, with the accompanying album doing the same. He even got back on Sony, and it's very clear that this is one of those songs that will never disappear as long as radio remains in cycle.

This is the point where he became particularly loathsome. Half for the way he's been marketed, and half for what he represents. With the former, it's important to note that his album is called "Back From The Edge", and I've heard at least one song on it that pushes a narrative where James acknowledges that he made mistakes in the past. On the surface it sounds fine, but I quickly couldn't help but see it as him actually pushing a comeback narrative, which means that in some part, he is banking from some terrible things he said in the past.

But perhaps the worst thing about it is the precedent it sets. In the intervening years where James Arthur's career was going nowhere, I'd seen many LGBT members in celebration that he'd been rightfully shunned out of the spotlight. After all, isn't it great when people get what they deserve, which also serves as a lesson for anyone else who might do the same. James Arthur being brought back into the spotlight is a complete slap in the face to this notion. It shows that you can be forgiven for such offense, you can even be rewarded for it!

All you have to do is make some plodding, middle of the road adult contemporary music. 2.3

(Also I remember James Arthur when he was on his tirades in 2013, he mentioned that he didn't like how his debut album turned out, and he wanted to record music that was 'darker'. Here he is in all his glorious creative control. I wonder if deep down he thinks this is rubbish).
******
Wunderbare Single - ich mag seine Stimme und der Text ist mehr als berührend...
***
Eigentlich ein schöner Song, leider langweilt er mich schon nach dem 3. Durchhören
***
Niet echt bijzonder nummer.
***
belangloses suderlied...
***
Nice at first, but now deeply overplayed and overrated. Also this song has been accused of ripping off The Script's 'Man who can't be moved'.
***
It's really easy to get the resentment for this, for reasons stated by many others. We really didn't need a James Arthur comeback. I initially had an 'urgh' reaction, but to my surprise it grew on me! But any credit I could give to it was squandered after it decided to spend SEVEN bloody weeks at #1 in Australia. Six of those weeks it spent blocking "Starboy" from reaching the top and I refuse to forgive it for that alone.

His voice hasn't improved much. There's no moments as bad as the ones in "Impossible", but it still sounds like he wants to spew for most of the song. I'd potentially enjoy this song if someone competent was singing instead. It's decent enough melodically that I don't hate it like I'd expect to. All that said, James Arthur can fuck off and never return please.
**
Snap niet dat dit een grote hit is geworden!
*
Boo Australia. Boo.
It's a nonchalant yawn.
I refuse to forgive this for blocking Starboy from #1 especially after it spent 12 weeks at #2.
***
Hab das Lied hier immer wieder anhören müssen, um mir eine Meinung bilden zu können. Erst schien es mir einfach nur schnarchig-öde - die 1000te Gitarrenzupf-Ballade wie eh u. je - doch mit der Zeit erwärmte ich mich für den Song.

Naja, immerhin halbwegs. Wenn es läuft, dann nett. Wenn nicht, dann fehlt nix.
*****
Best mooi!
