Telemaque's Unquestionable is probably one of the best, if not the best, Pan Tune.

Many people are questioning the All Stars/Phase 11 combination at the TOP. What indeed does the Panorama History say? From 1963 -2014, there have 51 Panoramas, really 50, there was none in 1979.

Let us examine WINERS' Row (First, Second, Third) over the years:

ALL Stars: 8 Firsts, 10 Seconds  & 6 Thirds = 24 times out of 50 in Winners' Row

Phase 11: 7 Firsts, 12 Seconds & 4 Thirds = 23 times out of 50

Desperadoes: 10 Firsts, 4 Seconds & 8 Thirds = 22 times out of 50

Renegades: 9 Firsts, 3 Seconds & 5 Thirds = 17 times out of 50.

At first I didn't like the tune and I thought it would be a repeat of the last 3 years but it’s growing on me. Sometimes you have to really listen to hear what the judges are hearing. Every single pan had a bit of a solo in the tune… a call and answer effect. As I said before All Stars signature is the RUNS… No one can do it like them they are the tightest playing band in the world. Talk about drilling to get to this point… Unquestionable.  Smooth has really transformed himself over the years. If you go back in time and listen to Woman on the Bass Doh back back … this is really a change from those times. Unfortunately Despers and Phase II are still playing 1980’s and 90’s music today.

Nigel starring out on the 4 pan, I was expecting a different flavour after listening to the song itself, suck eye as they say the congas play the same lick for more than three decades, almost 40 years, why break a winning formula, placement of pans is important, the bases got certain licks they play every year, it works pan people from other bands does vex same ol thing, hey it works, Kenny G, plays the same licks, much entertainers do same , keep on keeping on all stars good luck

I haven't seen All Stars so relaxed in quite a while. They really seem to be enjoying this one. Here is your winner.
