Straight No Chaser's latest CD "With a Twist" is simply impossible not to enjoy! My 19 year-old daughter and I attended a live performance recently and loved every minute of it. I purchased the new CD and now re-live the wonderful moments of the concert, whether I'm in the car or on a run with my IPod. There's a huge variety of music, all featuring the most extraordinary acapella music you'll ever hear. The tight-knit harmonies are rich, pure and glorious! While some songs are soulful and poignant, others are simply made for smiling. Savor each track on this very special CD!
I first saw these guys on youtube and I just had to get their CD. I love the Christmas Can-Can!! If your looking for a great anytime present, this definately fits the bill. It's great for any generation and trust me, it'll get a smile!
This is a good turn after 2 great Christmas albums. I was hoping for a little more creativity in combining songs that don't seem to go together (Toto's Africa in the Twelve Days of Christmas). A great cd to listen to driving in the car. Found myself singing along to several songs. Would recommend to everyone.
These guys do a great job with various styles of music. Their recent Christmas album is also well worth the owning.
This soundtrack has great personality, originality and the most unique performance of any band out there. It's a great buy, I have never once regretted buying it. My family loves to listen to it all the time, especially in the car, and they love to sing. It is such a blast to sing to, I have had more fun with this style music than any other I have encountered. The effects are totally realistic and incredible! These guys really know their stuff. Terrific talent and brilliant idea! Great job Straight No Chaser!! Keep it up!! Give us more please!!!
Wow, finally a CD of "Straight No Chaser" that I can listen to sometime other than Christmas. Ever since the first time I saw these guys on a YouTube video singing their inventive version of "The 12 Days of Christmas" I've been hooked. Their harmonies are amazing. It's impossible to believe there's no instruments, just their voices singing a cappella, extraordinary! This CD has "One Voice" with Barry Manilow singing. Combined with these ten guys the result is a showcase of incredible vocal abilities not to be missed. My favorite song on this CD is "I'm Yours / Somewhere Over The Rainbow", it's just a light and happy tune. If you appreciate harmonies rather than studio magic then you'll appreciate this music. Also look for their CD "Christmas Cheers"
Don't wait, run to your nearest B&N and buy this CD TODAY! You won't be disappointed.
If you like acapella, you'll love this. Even if you just want a change of pace or a mix of favorites, the album should please you.
Thoroughly enjoy the return of Straight No Chaser. They are talented, entertaining, and their CDs make great gifts to both myself and to others!
