I really like the Overtones and this is the second CD I have brought. I absolutely love their rendition of You've Lost that Loving Feeling which gave me goosebumps and Grooving is also a tune that gets me going. It is an upbeat CD that you could put on anytime and have on as background music to a party to give that atmosphere. Well done guys more please!

Ok, now before I start my review, I should mention that I normally get an irate person send me an inflamitory comment as they don't like what I write. This is an honest review of how I feel about this album, if it offends you its ok as its your choice as is mine to write how I feel. That's out of the way, now lets get to the meaty bit......

I had no expectations for this groups material, I heard "loving the sound" on the radio and loved the sound enough to buy the album, so for that part of it I was not disappointed. However, I have to agree with some of the negative comments made by other reviewers. The choice of songs on the album is good including the covers, I am a fan of covers so it is nice to hear another groups versions of some of the classics. But the whole album did feel a bit amateur at times. That said I didn't hate the album as I didn't know what i was going to get anyway but I wasn't blown away and certainly would have trouble listening to the whole CD. Sad really as I like surprises when I buy music and unfortunately there weren't any this time. I do believe that these guys would probably be great at a live gig and lets hope they have a long career as they have talent and its a shame that this album dosen't shine for them.

What can I say about the Overtones? You'll either love them or hate them, like Marmite, but I love the vocal harmonies, the phrasing and it reminds me of West Coast USA just after Elvis was drafted and Buddy died. If you like real songs being sung (no offence Dre or Eminem) then this group and this album will knock you back through time. 5 out of 5 although it deserves so much more.

What can I say. I loved Good Old Fashioned Love (debut album) better than Higher. I'm in the USA, but I love The Overtones. I could only get the new CD by ordering from the UK and I was pleased with the transaction.

The best songs on the album, in my opinion, are... Loving the Sound, Runaround Sue, Reet Petite, Unforgettable, The Glory of Love, You've Lost That Loving Feeling, and When You Say My Name. You'll notice I preferred mostly the cover songs to the originals on this album.

I can't say that about the last album, as I loved every song on the last album. I didn't feel some of the originals on this album quite had the same sound or feel as their debut album. They just lacked something.

I'm still a huge fan and can't get enough of these guys!

This is a fantastic album, the lads do a great job with all the songs and they all have fantastic voices. ;-)

Another great album for the lads ;-)

This is one of my favourite albums to listen to and I highly recommend it. :-)

This is definitely the best album I've bought in a long time. All of the lads properly feature in it as they all take the lead at some point. Okay, they haven't written all of the songs, but what's wrong with covering older ones? It means my generation can discover them too, it's not like they're trying to outdo anyone? Worth every penny.

Although this CD might suit anyone as background music it wasn't quite what I was expecting. Having seen this group on breakfast television when I enjoyed their barbershop type delivery, I bought this for my daughter for Christmas expecting it to be similar to the presentation I had heard. This isn't what I would call barbershop - most probably my mistake but hope no-one else falls into the same trap!
