Product Description

Only Boys Aloud, the 141 strong choir from the Welsh Valleys are best known for achieving huge success on ITV1’s hit show Britain’s Got Talent, coming third in the final in 2012. Their debut album sees the choir marry traditional Welsh songs with an impressive selection of choral versions of more contemporary tracks, including stirring takes on Coldplay’s classic track "Paradise" and Take That’s "Never Forget".

Format: Audio CD
2012 has obviously been the best year for 'Only Boys Aloud' so far, and culminates here with their first album. Having come to our awareness during this year's 'Britain's Got Talent', they have clearly gone from strength to strength since.

I have to confess that I'd wondered whether it would be possible to get over 140 young men, most of whom will have had no previous musical training, to learn enough songs, and in full vocal harmony, to make an album of any quality, in such a relatively short period of time. I needn't have worried. This album is outstanding. The excellent choice of both stirring and relaxing songs, is performed here with passion and enthusiasm, yet finesse and refinement too, by this large Welsh choir. The arrangements perfectly match the material chosen, and are excellent throughout.

I would particularly add that the recording quality is spot on - showing none of that 'processed' sound quality record studios often 'add' to their albums and which make them sound artificial. The recording quality and the balance of the sound is outstandingly natural and free of the recording studio 'additives'! I notice that the album was mastered at Masterdisk in New York - every album I have that was mastered there has superb, natural sound quality. This is no exception.

"Calon Lan' has to be my favourite track and the performance here, with a new orchestral arrangement, is their best versions of it, in my humble opinion. Their other songs are also featured with new orchestral arrangements which are also excellent and compliment the excellent vocal arrangements.

OBA is a remarkable achievement having existed only since 2010 and having gone so far since then. Tim Rhys Evans must be a remarkable man and should be so proud of this.

"Firstly, may I mention my son is a member of Only Boys Aloud and he has been a member since the very start and I would just like to say that Tim Rhys Evans is a very hard working dedicated inspirational person and has made many families throughout South Wales very proud as any parent would be. I for one can say I am very proud to be associated with and to know Tim and his Only Men Aloud Team who have worked very hard to get Only Boys Aloud to where they are today........and now to the Albums. You'll probably think I would be bias but I've loved music all my life and have a ear for good music. The arrangements of all the songs are excellent, they send shivers down your spine and Calon Lan actually makes me have a tear in my eye every time. Its a lovely album and I am sure it will bring a smile to many peoples faces and most of all will send a message to all young people that anything is possible if you put your mind to it and are dedicated like all the boys who have stuck with the hard work from the start, well done boys and WELL DONE to Tim Rhys Evans. Thank you Amazon for bringing it to us.

Wow what a choir, such lovely voices that blend so well together. It arrived in the post this morning and it has been playing ever since. Lovely to read that Only Men Allowed had some imput into helping the boys. Both great choirs. Excellent buy.

I pre-ordered this as a Christmas present for my dad. Before I wrapped it I put it on and had to go out and buy another copy for myself! I really cannot make my mind up which track is my favourite and unlike some CD's where I have 2 or 3 tracks that I put on repeat, skipping others, I love every track on this CD. Everyone involved in this should be very proud of this achievement - not least making being a member of a choir 'cool'. Well done!

You can't fail to be swept up in the energy, depth and power of the quality tracks on this album, some new, some classic and some Welsh! Starting with Calon Lan, the track with so much emotion, most of the Britain's Got Talent audience had a tear in their eye. It doesn't matter that you don't know what it means as the music clearly illustrates the passion behind the words. At least half of the tracks are in English and their production is just as awesome for a group of lads from the valleys to have done. Hats off to the boys, they've done very well and are an inspiration to others. We should also offer a big salute to Tim Rhys Evans, the alchemist, who made Welsh Gold out of coal.

Great entertaining CD especially if you no longer live in Wales, it brought back so many memories. With so much unemployment in the valleys for young people it was great to hear that welsh sound coming from them.
