Totally agree with everything...I just love how natural the Ryan girls' voices are. They are wonderful...and Marissa made a lovely Annie. Alene is funny as all get-out, and about the Taylor Bright comment, that's actually just the way she sings. I saw her in Annie and another show and she sounded the same in both, and maybe in order to reach those excrutiatingly high notes she had to sing a little bit more through her nose...who knows?
Obviously this cd is successful...job well done!
