Pentatonix is the fourth studio album by American a cappella group Pentatonix, which was released on October 16, 2015. This is the first release of the band to feature predominantly original material (the only covers being the cover of Shai’s “If I Ever Fall in Love” and the bonus tracks on the deluxe version of the album). Pentatonix also marks the first time band members receive individual songwriting credits for the majority of the tracks. Pentatonix debuted atop the US Billboard 200 chart with 98,000 album-equivalent units, with the album being their first No. 1 album on the chart.

PTX’s fourth LP is their first to contain predominantly original material — a major turning point for any artist best known for covers, and especially so for one with a fervent fanbase already in place. Pentatonix is sweet, charming and filled with vocal talent, but it lacks any oomph to go with their well-honed chops. The lyrics are often cheesy, like on the unforgivably cliche-laden “Sing” (“I don’t know what you’ve been told/But music make you lose control”), and musically, much of the album evokes Imagine Dragons-lite via tepid experimentations in EDM-ish pop-rock with a beatboxer instead of a laptop.
