HomeUPenn Shabbatones - Shabbaholics

RARB's picture

The U. Penn Shabbatones explode out of the gate with the hard rockin' Hebrew ballad Ashem, a kind of cross between the growing intensity of eminem's Lose Yourself and the super-tuned, syllabic singing of Glee. Because soloist Michael Gevaryahu unapologetically brings the lead all the grit it demands, Shabbaholics races off to a solid start. But immediately following is an awkward, grid-snapped version of Somebody to Love. And the album's core struggle is made apparent: Man vs. Machine.
