It's nice to hear four people doing the harmonies as opposed to the studio stacks. I wouldn't have been mad to hear this group do them on the album. They sound great and the blending is exceptional. I agree with @Martin Medrano - "All My Life" is amazing this way. Love listening to the harmonic compensation. Karen slides around effortlessly to make the harmony work at the end. Less really is more and this tune is every bit as effective without all the fuss - maybe even more so.
"Contemporarily Oriented...yay, I said it!!!" DEAD!
