Naturally 7 are a unique wonder. Seven young men from New York whose voices construct the most amazing harmonies and replicate the sounds of a variety of instruments so well that they decided that their album would be just that. Only voices. No instruments. Wall Of Sound is an astonishing body of work. It is an upbeat, positive, optimistic record that bucks the trend on every level. Heavily influenced by R&B, Gospel and Motown, this band arranges and produces their own tracks, adding a distinctive element to them.

So much that I had to find out more about this a capella septet. I was pleasantly surprised that their version of "Be Still, My Soul" was on this album called "Vocal Play". So I set out to buy it. PROBLEM: It says on Amazon that I would have to wait 1-3 weeks for the album to ship. I was not going to have that! (Not Amazon's fault, but I was surprised that such a quality artist did not have one of their highest-rated albums in stock.)
Thankfully, an Amazon seller named "beaches_entertainment" ([...]) had it in stock! I paid about $2-3 less for it (including shipping), got it within days, and popped it in my laptop. What a disappointment!
No, the disappointment was not with the artist, the music, or anything else, other than the fact that this album does not have enough tracks! I was seriously hungering for more of their luscious seven-part harmonies mixed with stunning sounds of instruments that sound even better than most sampled music. After every track, you just want to hear more and see how far their musical talents can go!
Also equally disappointing is the reality that not many people give music and artists like this the credit they deserve. Surely, N7 has a loyal fan base that keeps them going strong through 2011, but why don't we hear more of this kind of music on the radio or see it on young people's iPods and MP3 players? The best part about their music is that it's wholesome. No foul language, no suggestive themes - the whole family can enjoy this album without the kids feeling uncomfortable that mom and dad will hear something offensive. (And to the music teacher who shared the DVD with her students - KUDOS to you for using this as a fun educational resource for today's youth!)
In closing, I have nothing negative to say about "Vocal Play". Neither can I compare it to any other N7 album, as this is the only one I own. Needless to say, it won't be long until I purchase another one of their albums. And you should not have to wait 1-3 weeks for it to ship, so buy it from "beaches_entertainment" or any other re-seller that can ship it to you pronto!
You're welcome, in advance.
struggle to find music that they can relate to and they thought Naturally 7 was absolutely awesome. Many of them have started experimenting with their own voices. I have told so many people about these guys. Saw them in Portland, Or and couldn't wait to get some of their CD's and DVD. Will continue to follow their careers and buy their music.
