 Hybrid Gone Bad April 19, 2013 By Gary Mitchell (Independence, KS) See All My Reviews "This CD is just too weird. Take some of Simon and Garfunkel's greatest hits and give them to a choral group like the King's Singers and the results are bound to be controversial. S & G still sound like S & G but some of the other selections sound nothing like the original. Still, the experiment is worth a listen, though I doubt anyone will like all the renditions."
