Four years after their last major-label release, inspirational a cappella group Take 6 returns with their first self-released album. Their last album for Warner Brothers, 2002's Beautiful World, was a muddle of pop covers and mild gospel with some ill-advised forays into smooth jazz instrumental backing that sounded well out of place with the sextet's trademark interlocking vocal parts. For Feels Good, the group get back to their roots both musically and spiritually, delivering straightforward inspirational tunes with nothing but their truly remarkable voices. Street-corner doo wop, the more sophisticated, jazzy vocal arrangements of the Ink Spots or the Four Freshmen, and the smooth R&B blend of the Four Tops or Boyz II Men are all present and accounted for, and the material is both perfectly arranged and delivered with passionate, devotional intensity. Feels Good is a welcome comeback for a group that had been unfairly marginalized during its major-label tenure.

This CD is a must have for every music listener. The tracks are a harmonious blend of genres with flawless execution. My favorite track is Just in Time, but the entire album is on repeat everytime. This is a great buy...satisfaction guaranteed!
I am excited about this CD, since it was released on my birthday!! I have played this CD over and over again. Take 6 have gone back to their acapella roots and come up with another great CD!! If you dont have your copy, go and get it!!! Take 6 does it again!!
The long awaited return of Take 6 has finally happened. With thier new Cd, Feels Good, they reclaim their thrown as the kings of harmony. They have once again have shown how accapella is supposed to be sung. Their signature six part harmony sounds just as great as it always does in songs like Family of Love, Lamb of god, as well as all of the other songs on teh album. You can put this in your CD player and never have to skip over a song, because they are all wonderful. They mix jazz and R&B feelings with Christian lyrics and like the title of the Cd says, It Feels Good
