About the Artist
Many bands are musically captivating. Some bands are hilariously funny. Other bands are full of charm and personality. Then there's Da Vinci's Notebook--they're all of the above, and they do it all without instruments. With soaring vocals and a "Simpsons"-like sense of humor and absurdity, their take-no-prisoners songs skewer everything and everybody from boy bands, road rage and pretentious '70s rock icons to weight-loss schemes, cloying folk anthems and pickled okra.

"Liposuction" and "Metal Shop" are great. "Lipo"'s lyrics will have you rolling (though you'll have to play it back half-a-dozen times to catch all the cleverness), and "Metal"'s concept (heavy metal songs done in four-part harmony) is, at the least, grin-inducing. "Traffic Jam" is also a well-crafted song. The rest of the originals are so-so.
This CD has a nice mix of "serious" fun songs and funny songs. If you want a more humorous CD, check out their "The Life And Times of Mike Fanning" CD. The songs on that CD are just as beautifully performed by almost every song on that CD is funny and will have you rolling on the floor.
If you live in on the East Coast, check their website to see when you can see them live, they're live shows are awesome!
My recommendation for any a capella fan is to buy this album and keep an eye out for their new CD, which should be more widely available in January of 2000. Their new songs are even wittier, more satyrical, and utterly impossible to get out of your head. You can also buy the new disc, "The Life and Times of Mike Flanning" now at live shows (where I just bought mine).
