Dear Abbeys review

Postby jduchan » Sat May 20, 2006 5:11 am

Congrats to the BU Dear Abbeys on such positive scores and feedback in the recently-posted review of their new album, "Abbeys Road"!! Granted, I've only heard the "Renegade" recording (which was on BOCA 2006), but after following the group closely during its 2004-2005 year, cultimating in their ICCA win, I can appreciate the power of their live performances and look forward to buying the album.

I found it interesting that the reviewers seemed to have such different responses to the overall sound of the album in the tone of their reviews: Rebecca Christie lauding the album for its natural sound despite some engineering, while Elie Landau panned the album for the very same engineering. (Jevan Soo's review seemed, to me, a little more even-handed, though generally positive.)

I'm not surprised, and regular readers of this forum will doubtlessly recall numerous instances of such differing critical responses. I guess it just seemed particularly stark to me, in this case, because of the effusive tone of Christie's versus the highly critical tone of Landau's (who seemed, to me, to be making as much of a philosophical argument as an album review--though that has always been a critic's prerogative!).

I wouldn't so much call it laziness, as simply a lack of talent/knowhow. at least in my groups, people just don't know what they are doing (not that i do, as you know).

The other thing about Queen is that it was their song. When a cappella groups do original songs (or even unique arrangements of original songs), I say use whatever effects you want - in that case, it's your music. But when you're using engineering tricks and computer gimmicks just to try to replicate the original, don't expect a lot of applause from me. The one who deserves the praise is the studio engineer - s/he is the one with the talent.
