UNC Clefs- Time Out

Postby abolch » Sat Jun 02, 2007 6:33 pm

Call me biased, but I'm really curious about what people think of the UNC Clef Hangers' new disc Time Out. I really like it because it's one of the most consistent a cappella CDs I've heard in a while- meaning I don't really get the urge to skip songs like I usually do when I'm listening to any CD. Obviously, I have favorites, but really I'm just wondering what people think!

Here's what this album made me think about:
You can do a lot of manipulation on an a cappella album these days, but you can't fake killer soloists, and that's exactly what the Clef Hangers seem to have - regardless of whether you think the perfectly engineered triangle sound is over the top or flippin' sweet.

My favorites:
She Has No Time - killer solo and what a groove in the verse
Be Without You - like butta
Feeling Good - awesome arrangement
What Hurts - I don't even like the original, but hey.

Oh, and I guess the guys really dig T.I., because there are 3 of his tracks if you count "My Love"

Another solid album from the Clef Hangers - and they seem to be doing more rap/R&B/hip-hop tracks than anyone else.

My favorite track off this disc is ''She Has No Time'' - it might be my favorite college track of the year, actually. I haven't heard any college track (tho I haven't heard them all, obviously) that juxtaposes a great song, arrangement, solo, and production so well, probably since I got my copy of 'Shedding'.

I also love ''Feelin Good'' (especially the intro), the percussion and ending from ''My Love'', and the great energy and raw nastiness in ''Time Is Running Out''...it hits you right in the face and never relents. I didn't care for some of the other tracks as much for different reasons, but didn't dislike any of them, either. I probably could have done with one less T.I. song...but they (the songs) are fun and they (the group) can obviously hang on the hip-hop tip with anyone. All in all, a pretty great addition to the collection.

First, I'd like to say that this album, from the albums that I have heard, makes the Clef Hangers the best recorded all-male group in the country at the collegiate level.

(Coming from a guy who was / is a part of a group close by and that some crazy acapellaites would consider one of their rivals, Juxta)

At times I said "Oh boy, Sperandio, you went a little too far on the effects / production..." However, its a consistant feel throughout the album, and none of it is blatantly wierd. (other than maybe the triangle hits)

With that said, I do have to disagree that they are loaded with great solos. There are a few tracks in which I felt like the background was way better than the solo, and I hate when that happens. Its like the production surpasses the soloists talent level. I do bet, however, that maybe they should have just worked a bit more on the accuracy of the solos as much as they (or Diovoce) worked on the backgrounds.

The final disclaimer, I do think they do a good job of showing they have a better solo representation on this album as a whole than 90% of male college a cappella does on their albums as a whole.
