Iíve been listening to Felderís new album and I listened to ďThe Way things Have to beĒ and I love that song. I think itís different for him to write a piano ballad but I think itís actually really good. His voice works great for the song. I love the melody and the background instrumentation of the song. It can be a little kid like in the chorus in terms of the melody and lyrics (in my opinion) but overall I think itís a great song from him. How do you guys feel about it?

Listened to it when I saw this thread. After reading the words "piano ballad" I didn't except much, because so often I find them very lame and not genuinely moving. And especially since it's a rock guitarist we're talking about, my expectations were not high.

But that was a genuinely beautiful song. I didn't pay attention to every line in the lyric, but what I heard was so much above the "ordinary average" piano ballad. Great melodies as well. Very good. I actually had an emotional experience listening to it. It wasn't just "nice and well done".

Thats funny because I read the same thing from a review of the album and felt the need to listen to it. I immediately loved it. I think itís a impressive piece of work for Don.

I agree - I like the song too. I listened to three of the songs from the album on YouTube and liked them all. Honestly, I'm still not a big fan of the vocals though. However, IMHO, all three of the songs are far superior to anything on Road To Forever. I'm not a fan of that album at all. I wish Don luck and hope this album does well.

The lyrics are nice, but the vocals are a little rough. I wonder if he would be more served in collaborating with a real vocalist. I do think this album is better than his last solo attempt though.
