All Music Guide - Andrew Leahey
Released one week before the show's premiere, this Christmas album features all ten of the vocal groups that competed in The Sing-Off's second season. The groups are varied -- some are high-school ensembles Men of Note, some are senior citizens Jerry Lawson & Talk of the Town, some are hyper-talented newcomers Pitch Slapped, and others are mainstays of the college circuit the Whiffenpoofs -- but the results are often impressive, assuming you're an a cappella fan who hasn't grown tired of holiday music.

On this album, more highlights come from the old-school approach.

    The best for this year's holiday music!

    10 groups of A Capella singers from this year's NBC's The Sing Off. They have AMAZING voices. I have heard these groups perform, this CD will be a must!
