I've liked Pentatonix since their "Evolution of Music" video. And from all the comments on there, I figured it'd be a good idea to watch their season of The Sing-Off. That's when I fell in love with the way they build music and fill out their sound with so few voices. And you could just connect with each one of them and their specific charisma and quirks on stage.

Their "Dog Days Are Over" and "Love Lockdown" replaced the originals for me.

Now, I liked PTX Volume 1. I respected their more polished sound and it was a nice easy listen. But it felt more like a compilation, and I just wasn't especially interested in the originals of most of those songs to begin with. Their Gotye and fun. covers were especially good, and I liked their original "Show You How to Love."

Fastforward to this week, with PTX, Vol. 2 coming out and it's a whole different story.

1. "Can't Hold Us" -- I liked the Macklemore track just fine, but didn't really get the whole 'song of the summer' hype it was getting. PTX's version, I love. It feels this epic battle chant, as if 20 voices were on the track. Scott, Mitch and Kirstie put so damn much personality into their vocals and every one of them gets a moment to shine, with Avi booming the hook. 9/10

2. "Natural Disaster" -- a PTX original, but you couldn't tell without being told. It sounds familiar, but it's own thing. You can tell how much they've grown as songwriters, because this blends into the album so well. Scott's lead is heartfelt and the whole song is sweet and full of restraint. I'm not a big fan of the hook, but this is pop done well. 8/10

3. "Love Again" -- another PTX original, and again, someone would have to tell you this was an original.

PTX, Vol. 2 far surpasses its predecessor (PTX, Vol. 1) in terms of song choice, arrangements, and sound quality.

1) The album starts off with a bang, leading with their insanely popular and catchy cover of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis's "Can't Hold Us". Driving beats, convincing raps with attitude, and a ridiculous amount of energy launches you into the next track.

2) "Natural Disaster" is an original, which flies on the strength of lead singer Scott Hoying's rifftastic solo and a clean, strong supporting background. It's a foot-stomper, almost literally, with the percussion driving the song and reflecting the unavoidable, destructive nature of the subject matter.

3) "Love Again" is, I believe, another original track, with Mitch Grassi at the helm. Mitch has one of the most beautiful voices in existence, soaring effortlessly into the higher registers with a delicacy and confidence that underlines the chorus brilliantly.

4) "Valentine" is one of my favorite tracks on the album. A cover of Jessie Ware's original, the introduction is absolutely fascinating and haunting. All three members of the trio show a remarkable amount of restraint in this delicate cover, backed by Kevin Olusola's understated vocal percussion and Avi Kaplan's steady bass. The song dances along almost flirtatiously, with the solo seguing beautifully between Mitch and Scott.

5) "Hey Momma/Hit the Road Jack" is cheeky, upbeat, and apparently a mix of an original song and a classic. The "Hey Momma" portion reminds me of their tracks from Vol. 1, particularly "The Baddest Girl" and "Show You How to Love", with the "Hit the Road Jack" parts throwing the listener into the past.

I just recently discovered Pentatonix, and went and watched lots of videos and ending up buying this album and the Christmas album. I can't believe the group is just five people using nothing but their voices to create all this incredible music. If you watch the videos, they switch off between the different singers to take advantage of their strengths. This makes for arrangements that are quite complex, but they pull it off with ease. But there is so much more. The quality of the harmonies are beautiful, the versatility and range are impressive, and the effects produced by their voices is just plain unbelievable. I mean, I keep wondering how they heck they do it! Have they been surgically altered or something? Just watch the music video for Daft Punk and you'll understand.

I'm another big follower of this group on Youtube and Facebook where they have mastered the art of self-promotion through social media. They are growing leaps and bounds in popularity despite almost zero radio play. The reason is their music is just plain ear candy - and this album is no exception. A surefire cure for a bad mood.

My favorite tracks are Natural Disaster and Hit The Road Jack, but mostly because I'm a big fan of the thumping bass, synched beats and the occasional impresssive runs of their lead vocalist.

The a capella purist is going to love Run To You with its ethereal harmonies and I appreciate the dexterity displayed in the Daft Punk medley and it ranks third in my favorite list.

I'm also another reviewer who does not care for today's popular music, but I make an exception for these insanely talented young people.
