    Fantastic CD! Many thanks to the Boyz for giving my teens and 12 year old something worthwhile to listen to and introducing them to sounds of Motown past. They did not change the integrity of the songs, but just added their special touch which is fabulous.

  1. The material tends to work best when they sound relatively relaxed, as opposed to when it is obvious that they are trying very hard to honor the originals while being over-demonstrative with their obviously gifted voices.
  2. While the majority of the cuts expertly merge the group's melodic vocals, the aggressive chants of Edwin Starr's 'War' are unbefitting an act known for silky ballads.
  3. Save the Four Tops medley there has yet to be a match for Levi Stubbs--the Boyz sound as strong and harmonious as ever.
