5.0 out of 5 stars The beauty of the human voice 6 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These guys prove that the human voice is the most beautiful instrument of all. Admittedly I prefer the covers of popular songs-the classical works are not so much my culture-but the timing, quality of the voices -the pauses make for a very relaxed listen, and in many cases improve on the original song-I don't think 'Goodnight my angel' or 'You are the new day' could be bettered-a lovely collection!

1.0 out of 5 stars Quality control lacking 15 April 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am unable to review both discs in this set, because I was sent 2 copies of the same disc, even though the second was printed as if it was the second one, it was a copy of the first. So combined with the hassle of sending back a faulty product, I decided to write it off. What I did receive was fine, but not as good as the King Singers I remember from way back.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad but room for improvement 14 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The first CD is all Choral music which you have to be in the mood to listen to. The second is mostly other stuff they have done with some interesting choice of arrangements.

I wasn't that impressed with this but 2 CDs for a range of music isn't bad. I think the more you listen the more you will like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Indeed the best so far - what's next? 13 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
So much of this recording is memorable; not only for the quality of the singing and technique but also for the arrangements of the pieces they sing. The harmonies are luxurious, emotive and to me - very pleasing indeed. This is the disc to play if you are beginning to feel lonely but don't wish to be unhappy.

5.0 out of 5 stars just keep singing 12 Sep 2013
By Stephen J.Brandow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It is a fine example of the talent of the voices as well as their willingness to cover a wide range of music.
5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding CD recording of a phenomenal vocal group 31 Mar 2014
By Dr. Marie Garritson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a magnificent recording by an incredible group. It is wonderful to have an overview of all the things that they do in their music. It is absolute magic. I shared it with around 60 people and they all greatly enjoyed it. What a wonderful group to have in our world today! By the time I got to the live performance recently I was totally prepared for a delightful evening of music.
4.0 out of 5 stars Cool "a cappella" singing 31 July 2013
By Andrew St.Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Songs taken from old (Renaissance-era) to modern pop tunes, I enjoyed and was captivated by nearly all tracks.

At times I was reminded of the movie "Pitch Perfect" -- except in this case no choreography.
