    Sonos Bonus

    The best vocal music Ive heard, period. First played on the radio at LA"s KCRW, their sound has completely obsessed me this year. They take songs you've heard a million times (Jackson 5, Radiohead, Depeche Mode) and reinvent them with an utterly compelling mood and twist. Then there are those you've never head before e.g. Bon Iver's "Re: Stacks" that are so beautiful, you hit repeat 50 times, write absurd Facbook love notes to the singers, then go explore the original artist also. This is just a spectacular breath of fresh air. And this B&N edition seems to be the best value -- with 2 bonus tracks, one featuring vocal percussionist Ben on his first lead (I read on their myspace site) and another recorded live at KCRW; never heard song before, it's Eleanor Rigbyesque and LIVE! you won't believe it. Favorite songs White Winter Hymnal and I Want You Back.... then theres the early Imogen Heap cover... hmmmm.

    more from this reviewer

    Kinda Boring, actually.

    Meh. This album tries hard, but ends up laying there like so much fish. It's not a bad record by any stretch of the imagination, and it's good background music...but when I play a CD, I want to focus on the music, rather than feel my attention drifting in and out of it.

    Great original new voices

    Delicious arrangements, great voices made all the more magical when you know that the voice is the only instrument on the whole collection. The reunion with Sarah Bareillis on her piece "Gravity" is an added bonus.

    Sonos Reinvents Indie Gems

    This is simply wonderful music. Sonos has taken a dip into the rich pool of music found in the über hip indie scene and applied their vocal magic to create reinventions of the originals that will paint elaborate images in your mind. This music points to the fact that composers of wonderful music may not necessarily be the best performers of their creations. (Think Burt Bacharach versus Dionne Warwick.) The rich, complex, dynamic arrangements created by Sonos in this album beg for another listen, and another , and another. There is a wonderful interview at this link that will give you a better picture of what Sonos is all about: http://www.comfortradio.org/comfortmusic/archives/2009/09/an_interview_wi.html
    The best way to appreciate what they have done is to buy the album and immerse yourself in their world. You won't be disappointed.
