Juice - Something to Feel (1997)
Something to Feel is the debut album of the Danish pop/r&b girl group, Juice. The album was released in 1997 with 14 tracks, which two of them are interludes. The album was a moderate success in Denmark, but it is unknown how the album did in the album charts. The album spawned two singles, Best Days and I’ll Come Runnin’ in 1997 and 1998 respectively. The re-issued version of the album released in 1998 after the departure of founding member, Lena Tahara. That version was renamed simply as Juice featuring new member Eve Horne, removing two tracks from the previous version, and a new version of I’ll Come Runnin’. But I think this version of the album is better.

My Top Five Picks:
The album has more pop vibes to it with a little bit of r&b influences. Just like my first pick, I’ll Come Runnin’ has more commercial pop feeling to it. This song was written by Diane Warren, famous for writing ballads such as I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing, How Do I Live, There You’ll Be, and to name a few. This track though is more of a love song for a friend feeling to it, than a romantic love song. All three members have solos in this song: Maria sang the first part of the first verse, while Anne sang the second part, and finally Lena sang the entire second verse, which is my favourite verse of the song. The harmonies on the chorus is also gives me a a peaceful feeling because their vocals are refreshing and relaxing.
My second favourite on this album has more sensual feeling to it, and it’s called Vertigo. The very seductive vocals of Maria during the first and second verses tastes like chocolate: sweet and tempting. The pre-chorus harmonies were also great. The balance of lead and low background harmonies sounds very hyping before they drop to chorus. I am just not sure who’s doing the adlibs: sounded like Lena though.
Calling is the group’s thank you letter for the fans. The lyrics of this song shows their appreciation how fans loved them from day one. The song has soul and r&b influences to it, and Lena sang the lead vocals of this song. This is one of the songs that got removed after the album got re-issued. Also if you ask me, I think this is her solo song because I am not sure if I hear the other two on this.
Best Days is the group’s debut single to promote this album. This song is actually their best song, but I have heard it a million times before that’s why it became my number four. This track has heavy pop influenced on it, and has a very good vibes lyrics. It’s like a celebration of life after the rain, so if you want a track just to celebrate any accomplishment; this song I recommend you to take a listen. Maria sang mostly of the lead vocals while the other two did a little adlibs.
Lastly but not the least is Just for One Night. This track has a strong 90s r&b influenced to it. The song is very sensual just like Vertigo. It’s a song I can compare that an American girl group would release like Jade or SWV. If the group had a crossover run in the States, this song is a great introduction for them as a single along with Vertigo as the second single. You know me, I love my r&b that’s why this is my favourite.
Here’s their album track and my favourite: Just for One Night:
