UIWY is just perfect. I love everything about this, also the best vocal performance of the album. So gorgeous!

Def one of the best ballads she's recorded in a while.
People shit on her now because they have some sad life and jealousy. Those who celebrate her now are the true winners because you live in the moment and appreciate true beauty and talent while it is still here.

Gorgeous. It’s nice to hear one of the early recorded songs. I think a lot of people will relate to this if it receives proper exposure.

It got me chills. Damn serving Adele/Bruno lovesong madness.
She snatched them and Sam Smith with this one.

It's my favorite song from her officially. It's just incredible.
That is so true

I like how simple and straight forward the lyrics are. I agree that it is a sort of Adele/Sam Smith approach... or even a Say Something approach. And her voice on top of it all makes it in a league of its own. She truly is the most interesting vocalist I've ever heard.

OMG I want to walk down the aisle to this.

I'm gonna put this on repeat, think about how much I miss my bf and shed some tears (the good, stress-relieving kind) before I go to sleep!!!

Dunno. Beautiful song, very wedding themed, but perhaps bit too much even, at least for me. I can relate to it but... mjeh.

My partner doesn't even like Christina, and he was like, "Wow, that's a good song. Who is that?"

This is the song the general public wants and needs form Xtina and if she could give us WELL rehearsed performance, similar to what she did at CNN Heros, with smart vocal choices, imagine!

"Unless It's With You" may be my favorite song. It is the only song I played more than once. I'm on my 5th listen.

This is great! Beautiful production + vocals and overall theme.

I have to admit the "I don't want to get married unless it's with you" sounds cheesy to me, I would have preferred a more poetic way to say it.

The ending also feels abrupt since it's the album closure, they could have extended the piano a bit and it would have been perfect. But that's just me nitpicking tbh.

That small break in her voice on "doooOOO" at 3:23 gets me every time. It's such a small detail but it literally chokes me half to death.

I can imagine UIWY and Change on the same album. Don’t they share a writer?
Change was the last X song that made me cry.

I agree, it kinda ruin it a little bit, but I really love the track. It's so beautiful, her voice goes to places I've never heard, it still amazes me (even after a 17 years being a fan) how great she can sound in ballads like that. She shine the most in songs like that. I live the lyrics (despite the wedding phrase), the concept of forgetting and not having this super-cute without problems kind of love and wanting the relationship like she described in New paper magazine interview.

Unless it's with you just made me cry. For some reason, this song resonated with me even before listening to it. Epic title, amazing song, epic execution. Strategically placed to close in a grand way. It will really be a stand out in her album. I am so proud. This wait was so fucking frustrating at times. It was fucking worth it.

Incredible, if Aretha came out with this back in the day, it would be a classic along with Respect and Say a little prayer.

Ed Sheeran would release this as a single
Adele would release this as a single
Beyonce would release this as a single
and thats why they are where they are.

If this song isn't given it's justice, what an insult it would be to everyone who worked on this masterpiece.

This maybe could be her "We Belong Together"

Just amazing. Start to End. I have no complaints.

I think this is definitely one of the best songs of her entire catalogue. Production and VOCALS are absolute PERFECTION. It’s the sound I’ve ALWAYS yearned for.

Lyrically, the song doesn’t connect as much to me with the whole marriage thing.

But epic, gorgeous song. Wow.

They BETTER release this in the fall. I would cancel RCAncient if they neglect this song.

I hope people stream and buy this song so much that Christina and RCA can't ignore it :laugh:
