The Business Times (extract)

It's always nice to review a strong homegrown Christmas album. A capella group Agapella was formed in 2002, but only released their debut album this year.

Called Follow The Star, it's Christmas themed and features well-structured arrangements of classic songs as well as a few less well known tracks. It isn't easy to accurately imitate drums with just one's voice, but there are some convincing hi-hats on God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman. O Holy Night also features some appealing harmonisation.

Non-traditional songs like What Can I Give Him and In The First Light also show off the Agapella's vocal prowess nicely. Besides excellent intonation, Agapella deserves praise for good diction, and doesn't suffer from the distracting sibilance that afflicts some local vocal groups.

The strangest track on the album is the last, titled Internal Affairs, which is a conversation between two foetuses inside their mothers' womb.
