Divisi's Undivided

Postby lcmike » Sun May 14, 2006 3:16 pm

I found this review to be interesting and somewhat peculiar. It happens to be a favorite album of mine, and being an uber fan of Divisi, I'd like to bring up a few things that are bugging me.

With no disrespect to Kimmie Raschka, I found her review somewhat half-cocked. She wrote that there were "Typical Divisi problems," but failed to give a definitive answer as to what this was.

The other curious part for me was the creativity score. I'll grant you that some of these songs have been done a number of times, but Divisi's arrangements, passion, and charisma are unmatched. Mind you, this creativity score is in spite of "Yeah!" and "Imagine," which both received high praise for being unique.

Anyhow, just my thoughts.

^Agreed on all counts. There's a few hit-and-misses for everybody on Undivided, but even on the oft-covered songs I think it's fair to say that Divisi makes each number their own.

I think it's the best all-women's collegiate a cappella album to date. The mixture of talent, soul, arranging, and production has been rarely eclipsed on any collegiate album.

I am also unclear on what a typical Divisi problem is. But, I'd love to hear what it is. Also what a typical hookslide problem is :)

So, since I've always been curious myself, I decided to look and see how RARB defines itself. And here's what the first sentence is (in the "What is RARB?" section):

"The Recorded A Cappella Review Board (RARB) was set up in 1993 to give a cappella groups a chance to have their album reviewed by our board and to give potential buyers and listeners some insight about each album."

Though it sounds like it's more geared toward potential buyers/listeners, the first part does sound like the other part of RARB's mission statement is to give feedback/commentary to the group. Whether or not it's supposed to be helpful, I have no idea.

That didn't really clear up much of anything for me, but I just figured I'd toss that in there for others to debate.
My lip gloss does nothing. Damn it.
