...and it's pretty average.

Some rehearsal footage for your viewing pleasure. It sounds really good if you're listening to your favorite Bubs album at the same time.

stupid Bubs.

Anyway, we're now, we're improving, and we are nowhere near your home...so whatevs.

Hmm... your bass singer is very good. And the beats you format as a group are excellent- musically, the group is excellent. Bad Romance song wad awful though. The song just did not suit you all at all. The side was much more successful.

However, one person stood out to me as not dojng very well. Unfortunately, the lead singer himself is what makes the group "average". The songs do not suit his voice at all. Try experimenting with other members of the group as the lead- you will know yourself who might be suitable. He probably would fit better as a harmonic voice rather than the lead.

Just my opinion, nothing more. I'm no expert at a capella, I'll admit. But the lead singer needs to be someone different. Maybe experiment with a female voice- I noticed you didn't have any in those videos.

I like This Side - a number of cool harmonies going on!
Bad Romance I feel like the arranger tried to follow the original too closely. That just won't work on this song with your group. You can still do the song, but you need to arrange it appropriately. Synth sounds and slides are tricky unless you're literally being more synthy about it. The straight 8ths during the chorus are a bit too stagnant - I'd suggest changing up the rhythms to make it easier on your guys as well as create some movement. Maybe have some guys holding notes. I feel like the song in general needs to fill out more.
