"Beauty and the Beatbox ... is a stunning achievement in vocal discipline, cohesion and precision in itself, but beyond that, the beatbox arrangements simply take your breath away. We are hit right between the eyes with a vocal arrangement of Beethoven’s Fifth à la Bee Gees that knocks your socks off too. More traditional fare, such as Dido’s Lament and Albinoni’s Adagio in G Minor, don’t escape, however, and one simply waits in wonder for the beatboxing to make its entry into the already perfect harmonies. Like the Beethoven, tracks like Ravel’s Bolero have the added smile factor – and the final ‘Backbeat’ track is simply astounding."
"Added to the mix this time is vocal percussion where all the sounds come from the voice or parts of the body – it’s extraordinary" ***
