CD Reviews

Outstanding! It was well-worth a trip overseas to obtain it!
Peter Hitchens | 06/09/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I had to go to Japan to purchase this CD five years ago, but now anyone can get it right here in the US! Don't let the price scare you off: the musicianship contained on this album is stellar, from the variety of music selections to the overall performance of each tune. This is the perfect intro-to-acappella-music album for people who think music is incomplete without instruments! For people who already love this performance genre, this CD should be in their library. Bravo, gentlemen, on a job well done!"
Awesome blend of voices!

"I got this CD for Christmas and I love it! My favorite song is "Heart of Gold" because their four voices just flow along. "Tokyo Yo-Yo" and "Fliptop Twister" are upbeat, moving songs, which are also very good. This CD is the best because of the talent and the great sound of Sean, Barry, Elliot, and Scott. Oh, one more thing. Do any of you Rockapella fans have a CD/tape called "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?" I got it a couple years ago. It features Urban Blight, Three Brave Woodsmen, and the Persuasions, along with songs by Rockapella. My all-time favorite Rockapella song "Everything to Me" is on there. Do any of you guys have this tape? If you do, let me know somehow!"
THE BEST OF THE BEST

"Of all the 5 CD's listed here, this is my favorite. I try to cycle through the CD's on a daily basis, but I keep coming back to this one. If you like Barry's Bass, then this is a must, his Bass line is easy to follow and it's one of the best renditions of Sixty Minute Man and Pretty Woman. Just remember this is pre-Jeff (vocal percussionist) but a really great CD!"
