If Pentatonix can do it, so can our Boys!

I think they will definitely do this song on tour. They have said they are a vocal harmony group and can sing a Capella at the drop of a hat, so this song doesn't surprise me too much. It shows where they came from and how far they have come with their voices. It is an amazing song!

I too am loving that they are each getting more of a chance to sing, and I do hope to hear more of Kevin though! They picked the perfect name for it too. I think DGBMH is my favorite so far still and now Breath. No Place is great too, the video made me cry the first time I watched it.

I do like Chances, but I think the one thing that bothers me is that they don't ever sing together as a group on the song. It just keeps going from one person to the next (and I think Kevin and Howie should have had longer parts) but the first time I heard it I just kept waiting for them to sing together and it never happened, I was like 'oh, ok'. It's still a great song though, I still listen to it, so I'm not trying to hate on it.

I feel the same way about Chances. Howie's part in that song bothers me because it's too low for him lol I do love it though.

I think my current favorite is No Place, but that may just be because it's one of the most recent ones.  I really do love all four tracks.  And all the music videos are great too!  Even the little lyric video they released for Breathe was a nice touch.  Being back with a record label and having that financial backing has its perks!

I see your point about Chances, and I agree about Howie's part too.  If they had just made the song a little longer, they could have given Howie a better part and had someone else sing the low part.

I love the album title DNA and both the meanings behind it.  It's nice to see them come up with a meaningful, original title and not just borrow the title of one of the tracks like they did on the last two albums.  (And, ironically, I think "This Is Us" is the album where they tried too hard to NOT just be themselves.)

I think they just had some really good producers on this album. And I know AJ kind of explained in an interview that they sort of went back to the "formula" that worked so well for them back in the day with like millennium and Black & Blue. That might be what is working so well for them again. Having really good producers and waiting for just the right songs.
(I totally agree with you about the "This Is Us" album, its good, but it just really wasn't them, it did seem like they were trying too hard to sound like what was popular at the time. It just didnt really work for them though)

Yeah, they definitely took their time with this album, and it seems to be worth the wait!  I think having a label behind them again probably helped them get better producers.  I'm sure the success of the Vegas residency helped too; more people are willing to work with them now that they seem to be making a comeback.  I love when the Boys write their own music, but these songs are really good and seem perfect for them, regardless of how much of a hand they had in writing them.  They sound current, and yet, still BSB.  They don't have that feel of trying too hard to stay relevant.
