Ten years, Tenth anniversary, Tenth album
By: Carlos Glick
The Piano Guys’ latest album was released to the public on November 20, 2020, the album is spectacular. Judging by the title of the album, it is their tenth album. Not only that, but it is also their tenth anniversary celebrating 10 years of Piano Guys history.
The album features two CDs, meaning the first disk features their newest music while the second disk features hit’s throughout the years. The first disk features 10 songs with 2 bonus tracks, which comes out to a total of 12 songs. The second disk features a total of 15 hits throughout the years. In total, the entire album has 27 tracks.
Before I get into the music, I just want to point out that the songs The Piano Guys do are mostly cover songs from other artists and are from movies. For example, to name a few, artists like Lewis Capaldi, Ed Sheeran, and Rascal Flatts, and many more are covered in this album.
The music on this album is amazing. The songs on the first disc include “You Say,” “Someone to You,” “Fur Elise Jam,” “Someone You Loved,” “Thinking Out Loud,” “Happier,” “Lose You to Love Me,” “Avengers/Portals,” “Avatar (The Theme),” “Bless the Broken Road,” Better Days” and “More Than a Feeling/ Long Time.”
On the second disk, artists and movies that are covered are Coldplay, Beethoven, Taylor Swift, One Direction, and many more. Movies that are covered are Frozen, Kung Fu Panda, Wizard of Oz, and The Greatest Showman.
The songs that are included are “A Sky Full of Stars,” “Beethoven’s 5 Secrets,” “Titanium/Pavane,” “Let it Go,” “The Cello Song,” “Kung Fu Piano/ Cello Ascends,” “Begin Again,” “A Million Dreams,” “Rewrite the Stars,” “Perfect,” A Thousand Years,” “Over the Rainbow/Simple Gifts,” “What Makes You Beautiful,” “Story of My Life,” and “Fight Song/ Amazing Grace.”
The Piano Guys’ newest album is by far one of the best music albums of all time. If you need music to help you study or get motivated, The Piano Guys have you covered.
For me, the music in this album is not inspiring, but it is very motivating. The songs that really inspire me are “You Say,” “Someone to You,” “Someone You Loved,” “Thinking Out Loud,” “Happier,” “Bless the Broken Road” and “More than a Feeling/Long Time.” These songs really kept me motivated because not only is the melody beautiful, but whenever I listen to the songs, it gets me pondering about my life.
I would rate this album a 10 out of 10. Every song on this album is very original like all their past albums are. They take a popular song and either mix or jam it up with a classical piece.
You can either buy a physical copy of this album or you can listen to it free on Spotify or Apple Music. I highly recommend this album. Trust me, you won’t regret it!
