The best of the two albums, the Osmond Boys would have been a great challenge to New Kids on the Block if they had only released their CD sooner. I remember attending the "Stadium of Fire" concert and fireworks show in July of 1989 and seeing them perform live. How awesome their sound was and these boys are truly talented, sweet, and humble....an Osmond tradition in musical performance. If you enjoyed bubble gum boy bands of the 1980s and don't want the nasty drugs or sexuality ruining everything, then give the Osmond Boys a try....they have a Disney-quality to their performance and don't do the nasty stuff.
The Osmond Family always delivers an excellent harmony, classic songs and covers, and sweet, sweet crooning. What a talented family! These boys were next in line to Donny Osmond's "Soldier of Love" and had some decent album sale numbers. The songs are magic and fun, I listened to them when I was 11 and almost 2 decades later I still melt to the ballads and dance to their pop-a-licious beats. Yes, some songs are a bit cheesy, but what 80s pop album isn't?
This album contains some classic covers like "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)" and they perform it soooo well. David, (the youngest tenor Osmond) has such a sweet baby voice that can hit pure high notes very well. David leads all the songs with his brothers (Douglas, Nathan, and Michael) singing back-up.
Don't mind the black and white silk blouses, the hammer pants, the poofy hair with extra mousse, or the mullets....the sound is the best part! The next generation of Osmonds, the Osmond Boys, comprised of the four youngest sons of Alan Osmond, first came out as "The Osmond Boys" and then "Osmond 2nd Generation.Read more ›
