I find it offensive.  I personally listen to english music, but I also appreciate quality Jewish music.  I think when you mix the two together its problematic.

I dont care for the songs so much, but their "beats" are pretty good.

Personally I wouldn't pay for an accapella CD

I think they waited to release it until close to Lag Baomer since there really is music in it.

i was being sarcastic.  It is computerized voices.  But according to many this is problematic as well.  It definitely feels wrong.

If you have heard any of the other A.K.A pella cd's, that is there "motto". Most if not all of their intros and much of the music is "converted". On a personal note their rendition of Dror Yikra to Scarborough fair is fantastic ;-)

Besides that there may be some serious Halachic issues involved (during Sefira etc..)

The other albums were passable. This one pushed the envelope waaay too far. I wouldnt even listen to it after sefira. Might as well just listen to the real songs on mainstream radio its that close- they even leave the words in some of the songs
