Absolutely love it!!!! Thanks Blake!
Disappointing departure from their style….
I have been a passionate Blake fan for their Classical Crossover music. I had eagerly awaited their next album, owning their prior ones and listening often.
This is the first disappointment I have experienced from them. The sound is unlike anything they have previously produced.
It is a loud pop music sound, the sound which I escaped to them to avoid.
I have the entire album, and have listened several times. I cannot distinguish any song from any other. They all sound the same. Brash, lyrics poorly enunciated, the harmonies which I have come to love somehow superficial and shallow.
The title of the album says it all. They are abandoning that which we loved, the rich harmonies, the rich blending of the voices and are left with an album of loud, fast paced pop music.
If you liked Blake and their sound as we knew them, you are unlikely to like this album. I can only hope that they go back!
i love this song
A classical crossover vocal group that gained initial recognition given their formation on Facebook, Blake acquired broader attention in 2007 when they were tapped to be featured on "World in Union," the official theme song of the England rugby team ahead of that year's Rugby World Cup. Members Ollie Banes (tenor), Jules Knight (baritone), Dom Tighe (baritone), and Stephen Bowman (bass/baritone) found their voices -- as it were -- at a house party after connecting online. The group used their success with the aforementioned website to hook up with their manager, Daniel Glatman, who was able to score them a record deal with Universal Music. November 2007 saw their self-titled debut album released, a mélange of classic pop tunes, soundtrack favorites, and notable classical songs. ~ Chris True
