OK! HERE IT IS! MY REVIEW OF OIF SIMCHOS!

WOW! WHAT A TAPE!
IF YOU'RE AN OIF SIMCHOS FAN, YOU WILL DEFINITELY LOVE THIS.

IF YOU'RE NOT AN OIF SIMCHOS FAN, YOU WILL LIKE THIS ONE. NO IVRIT GIBBERISH (TO QUOTE MINDY!) THIS TAPE IS ALSO MUCH MORE MAINSTREAM THAN THE PREVIOUS ONES.

OK, HERE WE GO!

1- BA'ATI HAYOM- NICE SLOW SONG, ALTHOUGH IM NOT PARTICULARY CRAZY OVER IT.

2- KOL HANECHAMOT- OH! SO THAT'S THE SONG BLASTING OUT OF GAL PAZ FOR THE PAST FEW WEEKS! GREAT SONG! YOU HAVE THE ROCK, THE BEATS...YA GOTTA DANCE WHEN YOU HEAR THIS ONE..;-)

3- PIHU POSCHA- WOW! BEAUTIFUL SLOW SONG. MENDY GERUFFI SINGS MOST OF IT. THIS IS SO NOT THEIR TYPE OF SONG, BUT ITS GREAT.

4- TFILA-(SHMOR NA)- THIS IS NOT A NEW SONG. (IT'S IN FACT QUITE OLD, AND I DO NOT KNOW WHERE IT WAS ORIGINALLY RECORDED.) IT'S REDONE WITH GREAT HARMONIES, AND MUSICAL ARRANGEMENTS. I LIKE THIS ONE.

5- ALFEI ANASHIM- MY FAVORITE! FANTASTIC TUNE, POWERFUL MESSAGE. YISHAI LAPIDOT OUTDID HIMSELF WITH THIS ONE. SLOW SWING WITH GREAT WORDS.

6- YESOID HACHASIDUS- UMM...I'M NOT CRAZY OVER THIS ONE..IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN...;-)

7- HAKODESH BORUCH HU- CUTE SONG! THE TUNE IS AN OLD CLASSIC. (VETAHAR LEBAINU) SUNG TO THE WORDS HAKODESH BORUCH HU, ANACHNU OHAVIM OTCHA.....THE MUSIC IS GREAT. AS ARE THE HARMONIES..(REMINDS ME OF DOV SHURIN..IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN...)

8- KACH ANI V'ATA- I DONT REMEMBER WHO IT WAS ON THIS BOARD WHOS PET PEEVE WAS OISIYOS GROINOS...WELL, WHOEVER IT WAS. YOURE GONNA LOVE THIS SONG. THE GUEST STAR ON THI SONG, YISHAI LEVY , DOES THE SONG WITH PERFECT ACCENTUATIONS OF THE SOUNDS. THE "AYIN"S AND THE "CHES"S.

9- HAMELECH HATOV- ORIGINALLY COMPOSED FOR ALL STAR COLLECTIONS BY YISHAI LAPIDOT. GOOD SONG!

10- YEVANI- NOW THIS IS INTERESTING! HALF THE SONG IS IN YIDDISH, LYRICS WRITTEN AND SUNG BY LIPA SCHMELTZER. HE DOES A GREAT JOB, THOUGH I DON’T LIKE THE WAY HE TRIES TO IMITATE YISHAI'S ACCENT. (SEEMCHES INSTEAD OF SIMCHAS.) WHEN HE FINNISHES THERES A MUSICAL INTERLUDE AND THE REST OF THE SONG IS IN HEBREW SUNG BY S/O ELSE. ITS A GOOD FAST SONG.

11- MATONO L'DJ- A GREAT MEDLEY OF SONGS TOUCHED UP WITH GOOD HARMONIES ANFD FANTASTIC MUSIC. THEY START OFF WITH SE'U SHA'ARIM (AN OLD CLASSIC) CONTINUE WITH CARLEBACH'S OD YISHOMA. (YE, MINDY, THE ONE WONDERBOY SANG ON THE CARLEBACH TRIBUTE.) SAMCHEM FROM MBD, SHIR HAMAALOS, AND MOSHIACH FROM MBD. NOW, THIS IS CUTE- THE HARMONY TO THIS SONG (MOSHIACH) IS WITH THE WORDS "WE WANT MOSHIACH NOW" . ITS ADORABLE!

12- THEY REPLAY THE END OF PIHU PPASCHA. (BONUS) I LOVE THIS SONG . AND THE HARMONY IS GREAT.

ALL IN ALL. ITS A GREAT TAPE. AND I'M HAPPY I BOUGHT IT. ;-)
