It might seem like Straight No Chaser took some time off between 2009’s Six Pack EP and 2011’s Six Pack Vol. 2. But in between those EPs, everybody’s favorite all-male a cappella group was busy performing live and recording a few full-length albums. Here, the ensemble opens with a wide-angle take on the Smokey Robinson hit “Get Ready.” It starts with a bang, as perfectly congruent vocal harmonies hover over beatbox rhythms. Vocal cords are the group’s only instrumentation—the members dynamically approximate drums, bass, horns, and other instruments with their voices. An amazing version of Madonna’s “Like a Prayer” has the group bringing the tune back to its gospel inspiration, with vocal inflections becoming a magical-sounding orchestra. But the fun really starts with S.N.C.'s spot-on cover of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean,” where the group cleverly mixes in Bell Biv DeVoe’s “Poison” through parts of the tune. A soulful reworking of Weezer’s “Buddy Holly” is another standout. S.N.C. closes with an impressively executed cover of Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On.”
