Certainly a hot vocal outfit, four black Americans high on harmony and deep on soul. Somewhat reminiscent of the Boyz II Men sound, the music moves with a kind of stately dignity as evidenced in the restrained strength of the opening song "Psalm 146". Check out "Nothing To Lose" for finely sharpened and polished smooth harmony technique. Their version of "The Star Spangled Banner" is an acappella treat. Most acappella groups tackle this anthem, few have bettered it, bit short though at 1:43. Track six is a brief interview, nice idea which makes its point well. 'Three Days Later" is a cool, easy beat item which shows off the vocal expertise in making a jerky rhythm flow smoothly. The programme does a bit too much reprising for my taste, but the quality of the artists is convincing enough.
