A capella vocal group Pentatonix released their newest extended play (EP) "PTX, Vol. II" on November 5. They were the winners of the third season of NBC's "The Sing-Off."

Their new EP opens with a cover of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' "Can't Hold Us," which Pentatonix makes their own.
It is followed by the catchy "Natural Disaster" and "Love Again" is one of my personal favorite tunes on the album and it has a great dance vibe to it.

"Hey Momma" is another cool track, which includes a medley of the Ray Charles classic "Hit The Road Jack" blended in towards the end, which makes it even more remarkable.

Their rendition of "I Need Your Love" would put a smile of British songstress Ellie Goulding's face.

Their "Daft Punk" medley consists of upbeat electronic dance tunes such as "Get Lucky" and "One More Time."
It closes with a cover of Swedish House Mafia's "Save the World" and "Don't You Worry Child." This track is offered as an exclusive bonus track on iTunes.

The Verdict
Overall, the new Pentatonix EP is a real treat and definitely a keeper. It's amazing what this group of vocalists can do using their voices as their sole musical instruments. It garners an A rating.
