This CD featuring smooth voices and slick arrangements, thrown off with the professionalism you expect from King’s College, Cambridge, poses a problem because of the choice of repertoire. Aptly titled After Hours, this is a 43-minute programme of what could be described as audience-pleasing encores. Much of the repertoire comes out of pop, and although The King’s Men let their hair down there is an edge to pop which gets lost among the impeccable performances. At times there is some beautiful underlying harmony, but to end with a Michael Jackson number was not a good idea.
