With their fourth studio album, a cappella group Pentatonix is out to show that their unique sound is just as good in their original songs as in their many popular covers.
Pentatonix features 13 new tracks by the Grammy-winning group, only one of which is a cover. The album is a musical delight; solid proof that a cappella singing can produce music as diverse as songs involving instruments, but with a more organic feel.
Na Na Na has the energy and harmonies of an African chorus; Misbehavin's old school doo-wop sound is sure to get you grooving; and Cracked's big chorus has a rock and roll vibe.
While a joy to listen to, Pentatonix does not offer a lot of lyrical depth. As reflected in the uninteresting name, the album sounds more like a compilation of songs written separately by the group's members rather than a planned collection - making it less memorable than it could have been.
