NYU APC Rhythm “All Things Go”

“All Things Go” is a neat, clean album, showcasing some great soloists and making bold choices in the arrangements.  It’s not just a pop/rock album: the standout tracks are gospel and electronica, demonstrating a real breadth that most college groups don’t approach.  And fortunately, the risks they take in the arrangements pay off: it’s their tasteful use of vocal flange (a technique formerly abused by college groups) in surprising places, like the 90’s pop “Hollywood” and the country/gospel “Home,” and their creative endings, like a church bell ringing out the end of “Beautiful Day” and notes like glass ringing the end of “Love Song,” that bring this album from “good” to “really very good indeed.”
