Me Gusta Mucho!,
This review is from: Nota (MP3 Music)
Nota -- the winners of the underrated reality show "The Sing-Off" (summer 2009) -- is a fantastic a cappella group. They were absolutely my favorite group on the show, and I've been waiting ever since for their first CD. Here it is, and I'm not at all disappointed!
The harmonies and vocal instrumentation (I'm not sure what to call it -- I mean when they use their voices to sound like instruments) are awesome. Check out "I'm Down." When I first heard it, I said, "That's not really a cappella! Those drums are real." But no, they are not -- these guys are doing everything with their voices.
It's too bad this album doesn't include Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours," which is one of the songs that helped Nota win "The Sing-Off." Maybe that will show up on their second album. Meanwhile, we have some great covers (including an autotune-free version of the Black-Eyed Peas' "I Gotta Feeling") and three songs in Spanish (I love it when they sing in Spanish).
This would be a great purchase for anyone who likes a cappella or Latino music. Or, really, just for anyone who likes good music.
