Metropolitones : Time For a Breakdown    onsale

Review: "Time for a Breakdown" is the second full-size album (they also have released a pair of nice sampler CDs) of New York City's premier Seven Sisters a cappella group, which refers to seven elite womens' universities and colleges. Five of the eight current members graduated from Vassar, two from Wellesley and one from Mount Holyoke. The group was a 2009 contestant on NBC and Sony's "The Sing Off," which was inspired by the Harmony Sweepstakes. The MetropoliTones bring us 13 sweet-sounding covers, some favorites are the En Vogue hit "My Lovin' (You're Never Gonna Get It)," Paula Cole's "The Ladder," Az Yet's "Hard to Say I'm Sorry," Razorlight's "Golden Touch," Rascal Flatts' "Life Is A Highway," KT Tunstall's "Black Horse & The Cherry Tree," Camille's "Ta Douleur," John Lennon's "Imagine," Bill Withers' "Lean on Me" and the Wailin Jennys poignant traditional tune "The Parting Glass." The group has a killer live show, and an audience-pleasing sound with rich harmonies and beautiful leads. We enjoyed every cut of "Time for a Breakdown," and think you'll love this young, fast-rising, talented all-woman ensemble!
