Ouch. Really flat. It has potential so long as you replace 80% of the cast. The girl in green was the strongest female singer but the rest fell short. The tech team weren't able to keep up and unfortunately, a great deal of vocals couldn't be heard (some heard too much).

this show was incredibly hilarious!!! i read one of the bad reviews on this and i think the reviewer got EVERYTHING wrong!!! their vocals were fantastic with a rich and full sound, the songs were so high energy and fun, the show premise was GENIUS! never knew i needed an acappella version of love island! the stereotypical characters were freaking hilarious and so on point as caricatures of what we normally would see on reality tv…absolutely no toxic masculinity and self indulgence here, whoever wrote that terrible review sounded like they never even saw the show…the whole point went over their heads!!! hands down one of my favourite acappella shows, well done acadeptich!!! 100% would rewatch but they’re always sold out!

Ouch to my ears. Utter madness and over student confidence gone totally wrong. Listen to your pitch pipe, internalise the sound. Often opening basses were flat and caused your scrappy arrangements to be even worse on the ear. GET SOME DIRECTION on your vocals, LOSE THE MICS and work on your house blend. Listen to one another and stop goofing around. Stay true to the genre, work on the groove without a polyphony of madness, keep it simple as this will be more effective. Lose the toxic masculine moves and blend your tone.
Pure cringe. Love a cappella - bit this was Piccadilly Circus in a thunder storm. Sort. It. Out. I’m sure you can.
