Review:
Gunnar Madsen, co-founder of The Bobs a capella group, cuts no corners when it comes to his inventive family music. It's a winning combination: rib-tickling, off-the-wall, beautifully textured and tender. His subjects range from libraries, good cowboys and a country gal with "pumpkin hair" who "smells as sweet as butter," to a hilarious take on Mozart's 40th Symphony ("Mozart's at the Window"). Madsen's musical depth and versatility fuels each moment, shifting into mellow mode just as smoothly, with his exquisite lullaby, "Tonight" ("there'll be stars on your pillow") and a soulful rendition of "Shenandoah."
