Review of Why We Wear Baggy Pants

Very fun piece. A simple topic, yet at the same time has become an "issue" for many schools.

The variety of voices was great, and the tempo at which they changed matched well with the music. Though I loved the song, the levels at times were just a bit too high and some of the fades seemed choppy. Im unsure why the music played for as long as it did at the end but i think it couldve faded out sooner if there was no more dialogue to hear.

Good Job!
