Take 6: Join the Band

Before one of their knock-off competitors deflowered Brittany, before another of them triggered the cataclysmic "wardrobe malfunction" at Super Bowl XXXVIII (maybe it was the same one?), before another of them married that girl who thought "Chicken of the Sea" was actually made of chicken... way back when, boy bands were all about the music. And Take 6, in this 1994 album, is all about the music. They are the real deal. You don't get to sing with Queen Latifah, Stevie Wonder, and the late Ray Charles if you're not the real deal.
This is a wonderful, bright, brassy album, by a very talented group of singers. Known for their a capella work (the acid test of musical talent), backed by a band, they knock it out of the park.
