"Best"

Yesterday, our client said to our agent that we were "the best a cappella group in the world, behind Take 6", who are his favourite.

Today, I'm wondering if he just hasn't watched The Sing Off.

Or maybe we really are doing something different. The Sing Off groups are mostly doing pop. They're about making exciting arrangements of familiar songs that make you jump up and dance and marvel that it's being done just with the voice. That is not what we do. I mean, dance if you like, but our music is really about the brain, I think. Great pop music makes hard stuff seem easy. I think the jazz mentality is about embracing difficulty.

So maybe we really can't be compared. I don't mean that in the sense of 'incomparable'. It's just that, watching Pentatonix reach unrivalled heights made me feel left behind. But maybe that just doesn't make sense. We're on a different course.
