If the tight harmonies and close intimacy of English choir music is your thing, it does not come better than this stuff. The individual voices are talented and interesting, rather than just the sum of its parts the music is woven from a continually captivating strand. Billy Joel's Always a Woman is just breath taking, but the whole album just connects. You could lose yourself in this. I know I did.
Overall, a disappointing album, but for the eternally beautiful "You are the New Day". This particular track is a gem of haunting lyrical beauty and should be on an album with other early King's works - but especially those of a choral and sacred nature. To mix modern Barber shop style singing with purer melodies is simply irritating, as those who like one will invariably dislike the other. I'm sure the danger is that the group no longer have a singularity of purpose and this causes these confused albums, but thankyou for letting me hear 'The New Day ' once more!
