If you were thinking this was an album of barbershop quartets breezing through a set of Beatles standards, guess again. Using studio trickery to make voices approximate instruments, percussion, and other psychedelic sounds, the vocal groups here bring a wonderful and fresh approach to these great songs, expanding the rhythmic possibilities inherent in each melody, creating a stunning new alternate Beatles universe. The opening track, “Twist and Shout,” covered by the Knudsen Brothers, simply rocks, without a kick drum in sight. Cadence’s version of “Drive My Car” brings a kind of eerie, jazzy ambience to the song, giving it a spooky edge the original lacked. Even the more adventuresome tunes in the Beatles’ catalog work here. Both “Tomorrow Never Knows” by Five O’Clock Shadow and “I Am the Walrus” by the Tufts Beelzebubs are reborn and transfigured with striking vocal touches, while retaining a tone every bit as odd and psychedelic as the groundbreaking original versions. Toss this on at a party and watch jaws drop. ― Allmusic
