The six-man group's approach remains the same in their sophomore effort, yielding the same pleasing result. This time, there is a slant towards more original, heartfelt tunes. Jason Smith cranks away on the vocal percussion again, and Kimball Brown serves up more delectable originals. The group fills the room with harmony on "Dreamer" and "Silence," two songs that muse over contemplative subjects. They also reach their quota of '80s cover songs, this time rendering past hits by Erasure and Information Society. There are more good laughs on this album: Abba meets The Karate Kid on the parody "Jackie Chan," and "The Stalking Song" has to be taken cum grano salis. Overall, another a cappella gem.
