Disclaimer: All posts are just containing my OPINION. I don’t mean to offend. I mean to give only my honest feedback. Also, I do not listen to every song, although I try to. (I might have missed them or the site may not have posted on it. The ‘Discovered’ section exists for this reason.)
By the way, this link here is for those who wish to look at (almost) every song that came out in each week. Since I don’t like EVERY song that comes out, I thought the Soompi tag should reflect a better picture of the releases. 😀 Two other links here may help too: LINK #1, LINK #2
SO MANY music releases this week. >.<
As Autumn reaches its peak, the rock band’s album takes all of its songs along the broken hearted route.
Track 01. ‘The End’ (Homage to Kashmir) – Alt-Rock instrumental that gets pretty intense in the second half, transforming even into Grunge Rock at one point. (Sounds like a thrilling movie OST..)
Track 02. ‘One Day’ – Melancholic/Blues Rock Ballad. That belting out hurts.so.much. >.<
Track 03. ‘You Came To My Mind’ – The warm mid-tempo Urban Jazz Ballad musically describes that fuzzy, romantic feeling when thinking of his/her lover.
Track 04. ‘India’ – Atmospheric Orchestra-backed low-tempo Blues Rock Ballad. A deep, nostalgic, sweeping romance novel and a cup of coffee, thank you!
Track 05. ‘희생’ – Vintage low-tempo Blues Ballad. Perfect for a wistful romance film. The innocent love of yesteryears~
Track 06. ‘Baby’ – LINK
There’s no argument here. Mate is one of the best Rock (&Blues) Bands around. MV actor: Ju Eo Jin, your welcome.
#2. Yella Diamond <You’re The Only One>
Mid-tempo Urban Hip-Hop single
#3. Youme lends her voice for <The Three Musketeers> OST
Elegance and beauty sum up this Oriental Period Ballad perfectly.
#4. Check Donutman’s swagger out in <Welcome To The Game>
Chill, Mid-tempo Urban Hip-Hop – ‘Welcome To The Game’ and ‘‘데려갈게’(ft The Quiett)
#5. Sentimental Scenery <The Promise>
Soothing Low-tempo Blues Ballad
Sigh, Ju Eo Jin. He can channel the sad, listless puppy look so well. (Did Pastel Music hire him as their permanent MV actor?)
#6. Yang Hee Eun <뜻밖의 만남…두 번째>
Her impressive vocal range gives ‘Flower Vase’ a deep, nostalgic Vintage flavour made even bittersweet with Lee Jeok’s piano accompaniment. MV was perfectly slow and contemplative. Actor Yun Jong Hoon’s been in several series now (<Misaeng>, <Another Ms Oh> to name a few), typically as calafare/supporting characters. He usually portrays jackasses, and yet is still SO charming at it. #babyfacebadboy Yikes, the song review is shorter than YJH’s trivia. >.<
Hip-Hop track so edgy that Don Mills stood out more than Zico. #fridaymojotoughcookie I do understand that Hip-Hop has it roots stemming from aggression and the need to speak out, but swear words, they just don’t cut it for me. Congrats to the achievement though! On a side note, Zico rocks that purplish short crop so well! >.< And Don Mills, nah that body ain’t right yet. XP
#8. Filipino-American Jeff Bernat <Make It Official>
Mid-tempo RnB single featuring beats by ScaryP and rap by Crucial Star

Track 06. Hani & Baek Jong Yun’s beautiful Low-tempo Ballad duet – ‘Kiss Me’

Track 02. Low-tempo Urban Ballad – ‘Self-Hatred’
Track 04. Jazzy, Romantic low/mid-tempo Piano Ballad ‘Everyday Everyday Everyday’ #dinnerdateost

Track 08. Low-tempo Urban-Soul & Blues Ballad – ‘The Way To Let Me Go’

Immensely heavy Folk Ballad OST, but one with grandiose and gravitas of the past.
Soothing 90s Jazz-Pop Ballad OST – ‘After Love’
