Don't be fooled by the beginning of All the Way: while Boston's post-collegiate group Sound Off starts this song as a tender ballad, the arrangement soon erupts into a high-energy dance anthem that's true to Timeflies' electro original. Leah Caruso's gentle-then-soaring lead is a nice contrast to the male original, and the rest of Sound Off matches her tone and energy throughout the song.

Not to take away from the strength of All the Way, but Sound Off's success here isn't too surprising given the group's roster. The textured arrangement was written by Kevin Guest, who also recorded and edited the track, while group member James Cannon mixed the release. With All the Way, Sound Off delivers exactly the caliber recording one would expect, and although the arrangement deviates a bit from the original, it's not revolutionary. Don't get me wrong — All the Way is a top-notch recording that's well worth listening to, and it's one that any group (including Sound Off) should be proud of. But I know this group could also deliver the unexpected, and I want to hear them sing me something that I can't stop listening to.
