Puts people in perfect patriotic posture...
Bought it this morning... listened to it a dozen times already. This is a beautiful arrangement from one of the most entertaining singing groups today. Honestly, I welled with tears the first few times I listened to it. It's a great time of year to be an American, and songs like this just make me think about what a blessing it is to live in this great country.
Stop the melismas!
I love you guys, but I'm so not a fan of modern-day melismas all over the place. This song needs to appeal to everyone, not just young people and I think you should have left out the modern day riffing and just sung it straight with your beautiful voices and great arrangements.
More group singing.
I think this is arrangement is lovely, but I enjoy your music so much more when the whole group sings, or the verses are traded off between singers.
Clearly there are some songs where it is good to have one main singer, but I feel like too much of that makes the rest of the group seem like backup singers...At a recent awesome concert, I was aware of this. The beauty of the music is so much bigger when everyone takes part...
This song, particularly, would have been so much better done in a traditional manner. Kind of like you did "Carol of the Bills" at Christmas.
Straight up. Maybe with a little bit of a chaser ; )
