As a current director of the UNCG Spartones, I would like to do a couple things with this post. The first is to briefly address the previous posts. The second is to respond with my own opinions of the review.

On behalf of the UNCG Spartones, I say that the opinions expressed by any current or former Spartones on this forum do not necessarily reflect the opinions and/or communication skills of our organization.

RARB and its reviewers perform a very tough, sometimes controversial task. Collegiate a cappella music tends to be a personal journey for all those involved. Life bonds are formed between members of the organizations, and recordings become permanent reminders of each person's college experience. Listening to these CD's reminds us of the trials and tribulations of that time in our life...who we were in love with, what problems we had in life, who our best friends were becoming... Any time an arbitrary number is put on our efforts, its hard to accept anything but high marks.

Also, any remarks about the companies and/or persons involved in the production/duplication/recording/album-art/color/shinyness of our album is solely the opinion of the poster.

It is my personal opinion that a public forum is not a place to voice dissatisfaction with any business process. Opinions are expressed most effectively in the form of the health of a business relationship.

As far as the review goes...my personal opinion has more to do with what collegiate a cappella has become rather than the reviews themselves. We are being reviewed against groups that can and WILL spend ~$40k on a production, compared to groups that are recording directly through sound-altering software plugins, and measured against sounds that are so processed that the original sound is all but lost. Some groups can afford to record each individual voice on its own solo microphone, regardless of the cost. The worst part...is that some of those groups actually DO this. Where is the group mentality in that? When does it stop becoming an ensemble and start becoming a conglomeration of solo voices melded together by the wizardry of a producer?

In the end, I am more than proud of the Spartones' album 'Bulletproof'. It demonstrates the first recording of what this group has become. It is the first album with a solid, unmistakeable identity. What is good is really good, and what is bad is more than forgiveable. Above all, its real. Its raw. Its us. I know the Spartones are in no danger of being a Milli Vanilli of a cappella, and in today's world of college a cappella, that is something to be admired.

Eric....

Ditto.....Ive read alot of comments across the board, that Eric has produced with his vocabulary of distasteful words, and I just dont know who put him in charge of what he does......I feel it is way over board for him to bash a groupor any group the way he did the spartones.....maybe its best for all of us that you just stick with playing your magic cards....
