Just heard the new MBD album.
Gotta say, his voice is better then ever.
A few good songs (like 4). The rest as fillers in my opinion.
But the voice….OMG…..sounds better singing garbage songs then anyone else singing a hit song!
Anyone else?September 9, 2009 3:34 pm at 3:34 pm #870842plonisalmonisMember
I heard part of one song, but I have to agree with you – it was really good!September 9, 2009 3:35 pm at 3:35 pm #870843mepalMember
Yes. For good reason he’s the King of Jewish Music. I like his new album too.September 9, 2009 8:57 pm at 8:57 pm #870844goody613Member
he sounds great singing hit songs too!September 10, 2009 12:49 am at 12:49 am #870845postsemgirlMember
I used to get annoyed when all my brother wanted to listen to was MBD but now I see that he really is The King of Jewish Miusic! He really has a great voice and I was watching The Event and he was jumping up and down with Lipa. While Lipa was losing his breath MBD was not and he is old enought to be Lipa’s father.September 10, 2009 4:16 am at 4:16 am #870846sunflowerMember
“when lipa was losing his breath mbd was not and hes old enough to be lipas father”
is this the way seminaries teach you how to talk aout others erev rh”? so maybe mbd can hold it out 4 longer but to say it so straight out!- why do you have to degrade someone just because you are praising someone else? i wish you a ksiva vchasima tovah. i just want to understand it. maybe you just didnt word it the way it was supposed to be.September 10, 2009 2:12 pm at 2:12 pm #870847PhyllisMember
We just got MBD’s new CD for a gift. It is super!! If u dont have a copy yet go out and buy one!September 10, 2009 4:05 pm at 4:05 pm #870848oshyMember
all of the above in my opinion is 100% correct though the new shwekey which seems to be a rival of the new MBD is another proof of shwekey being second to none in the jewish music. I wanna know ur opinions on the new shwekey!September 10, 2009 4:23 pm at 4:23 pm #870849strivingMember
attention mods: as a frum website, i’m shocked that such topics are permitted as it is such a stumbling block for a person to speak lashon hara. It is actually considered lashon hara to say anything negative about a product, book, album put out by a yid because it can be degrading/shaming and make a yid (in this case a singer) lose money!!! I’m not trying to criticize anyone I’m just saying that unless this entire thread is full of rave reviews of the albums in question, there’s gonna be some lashon hara!!!September 10, 2009 4:44 pm at 4:44 pm #870850mepalMember
oshy, we had a thread on that that was closed.September 10, 2009 5:13 pm at 5:13 pm #870851postsemgirlMember
sunflower- you’re right. I’m sorry. All I was trying to say is that even thought MBD is not so young anymore, he is still able to sing and perform like a young man. I was not trying to put Lipa down. Believe me if I would jump like him I wouldn’t be able to breath let alone sing. They are both amazing.September 10, 2009 6:07 pm at 6:07 pm #870852A600KiloBearParticipant
Striving, we are allowed to point out that a product may not be what you are looking for, no matter who makes it. If I say Golden Square CY ice cream is too sweet, there is no aveirah. The problem comes when someone makes negative remarks that have more to do with the producer than the product, where the issue is one of personal taste and not objective.
Postsem – while MBD goes out of his way to preserve his health and physical strength (ad 120 and far beyond), keep in mind Lipa performed far more sets and was already performing for a while when MBD came on stage :).
I’m holding off on the album because I prefer a disc to a download and may travel soon, but what I heard on the online radio makes it clear that MBD is really back in full force. The album is more than worthwhile – it is another Pray and Sing where even the filler is good – and he should be zoiche to sing at the shofar concert that precedes the arrival of the real MBD – Moshiach ben David!September 10, 2009 7:57 pm at 7:57 pm #870853areivimzehlazehParticipant
amen! nicely saidSeptember 11, 2009 5:58 pm at 5:58 pm #870854goody613Member

thanks for clarifying postsemgirl.October 27, 2009 7:05 pm at 7:05 pm #870856dok36Member
What happened to Eli Laufer, he did almost the whole Efshar L’taken now he dissapearedOctober 28, 2009 12:31 am at 12:31 am #870857bein_hasdorimParticipant
postsemgirl: It appears as if sunflower was kidding with you.
Anyhow I also get so annoyed when a new cd comes out & most of the songs are fillers, its like your paying for two songs. you might as well buy them as singles online.
They have enough time in between cd’s, cant they find at least 5 or 6 decent songs?October 4, 2011 10:10 pm at 10:10 pm #870858Shticky GuyParticipant
I guess its time again to revive this thread. Nu? Has anyone heard the new MBD album Kissufim yet? Come on. You know you can tell me here in total confidence! Whadaya think? Isnt it just great? He’s the undisputed King!October 4, 2011 11:13 pm at 11:13 pm #870859moishyParticipant
Shticky Guy- Tracks 4, 8, and 14 are very good songs.This album is very different from all of MBD’s other albums. This album is a different style.October 5, 2011 8:12 am at 8:12 am #870860600 Kilo BearMember
Just gave the excerpts of Kissufim a quick listen. It’s on my list for Chol Hamoed. The only negative is that he just as soon could have made it an 11 track album and left out the three filler tracks of wordless niggunim (the Chabad nigun in particular is one that everyone everywhere knows already so there is no point in re-arranging it especially because the new arrangement is nothing earth-shattering.)March 21, 2012 6:22 am at 6:22 am #870861Muti FineMember
if you know were I can get the music sheets for his CD please let me know about itApril 26, 2012 6:23 pm at 6:23 pm #870862miamigirl613Member
Not Impressed! Very Dissapointed!
However his Kulom Ahuvim album was amazing!!!April 27, 2012 1:50 am at 1:50 am #870863TheMusicManParticipant
I dunno. I don’t really enjoy the chassidish overtones on the album. Too much accordion for me. But that’s just my personal taste.
