Have You Listened To Them Yet?: [5th – 23rd Oct 2014]

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

Songs I Like and Would Like to Recommend 

Mann, the start of October is already this exciting with Epik High, Gaeko and Ha Dong Qn’s comebacks! Joining in are Roy Kim, Younha, Gummy, Lena Park, Suju, G.O.D & Crucial Star (well, he’s from C-JeS Ent…) from the mainstream side and Suki, Loptimist, 20 Years of Age and Urbanspace from the Indie/Underground counterpart. And even though this isn’t the finest time to debut, super rookies Bernard Park, Purfles & Almeng held their own in the face of such competition. 🙂

Epik High produces a masterpiece of an album in <Shoebox>, showing that the trio are capable of both sentimental and dope Hip-Hop. Moreover, Epik High deserves praise for hand-picking the right vocalists and rappers. As for the album, I can’t pick a favourite –  because every track was just GENIUS. If you need an introduction to the trio’s album, here you go: Raise The Curtain (Mid-tempo Hip-Hop Soul), ‘Happen Ending’ (ft Rollercoaster’s husky, deep vocalist Jo Wan Seon – mid-tempo Hip-Hop Rap Ballad; the 70s-influenced beats are so nostalgic/bittersweet.), ‘Rich’ (ft Big Bang’s Tae Yang – Urban mid-tempo Hip-Hop), ‘Spoiler’ (melancholic low-tempo Hip-Hop Ballad; lyrics were impressive – love the link between the title and breakups | Kim Ji Su looks like a cross between Clara and Yewon – pretty!..And that 95er(!!!) male model Kim Kibum >.<), ‘Burj Khalifa’ (ft Yankee, DD’s Gaeko – Urban Underground Hip-Hop Dance), ‘Fighting Again’( ft Younha – mid-tempo Hip-Hop Rap Ballad – will Younha do another remake? Hahahaha; the resignation in Younha’s voice makes her a good candidate for such blue tracks..), ‘Amor Fati’ (ft Nell’s Kim Jong Wan – mid-tempo Hip-Hop Ballad; oh this is just so raw & beautifully intense), ‘Born Hater’ (Mid-tempo Electronic Hip-Hop Rap featuring a rap line-up of Beenzino, Verbal Jint, Mino, Bobby and B.I; liked how they each had their own vent session with their rhyme time. …And with the standard dose of curses – what else? – but they ended it adorably with a ‘nono’…so I’ll forgive them for B.I’s sake 😛 ..and on Verbal Jint’s account – cos he seemed so awkwardly endearing in the MV. And that was icky Tablo – I’m a born hater of roaches. >.<) , Click title to read more comfortably or click to continue

Ballad quartet Tritops sings a mid-tempo Ballad for <Golden Cross>. Somewhat typical, but the chorus and Tritops’s vocals (<3) are excellent together. Interested in Tritops?

Have You Listened To Them Yet?: 16th – 31st Aug 2013

Sorry in advance for my lack of vocabulary and if the post takes long to load. heh 😛

Songs I Like and Would Like to Recommend 

1. Mikey (of Double Kick)’s RnB version of Sistar’s ‘Loving You’ is my kind of song. It focuses more on the singing and, the vocals by Mikey and Olltii is awesome. It’s got this sexy but gentle and sweet(FALSETTOOOOO!…eheh) touch with the change in music style. For Sistar’s version, it would be for people who like the upbeat fun type of tracks.

K Songs So Far [1st – 20th July 2013]

I am sick currently and have been trying my best to get a post up. I may have difficulties being objective because somehow being ill makes me prefer songs with stronger flavour. The songs I liked and found to be ok may receive some negative feedback since July had a bevy of the industry’s heavyweights returning and most of them did things below my expectations. IMHO people, IMHO.

Songs Sick-Me Would Recommend/Songs Sick-Me like

1. Dynamic Duo returns with their 7th album ‘Lucky Numbers‘ and honestly, their title song ‘BAAM'(snake?) wasn’t as good as I would have liked it but it was still ok. The song has an RnB groove and I love how Gaeko ‘Ow!Ow!Ow!Ow!’s in the song and MV. The album is good overall, with most being my favourites, excluding ‘Baam (feat Muzie of UV)’ and ‘Lee Dae Ho((feat. Supreme Team, DJ Friz)’ which were not too bad, but not too good either. The beats and the rapping go so well together in RoTK.

Have You Listened To Them Yet?: June Edition Part 2 [16th – 30th June 2013]

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.

The songs that came out during this post’s period made it difficult for me to classify strictly. So, I’m going to be less brutal for the section below. 

Songs I Would Recommend/ Songs I liked 

1. Ulala Session pre-releases ‘Fertilizer’ from their mini album ‘Memory’. Perhaps ‘Beautiful Night’ made such a deep impression on me that I totally didn’t anticipate a ballad from them. The ballad, is breathtaking. Their emotions are just overflowing and before I knew it, I became emotional hearing them sing. I just, feel so sad for their loss too. *tissue, where are you.* AND Goosebumps, don’t ever forget goosebumps. The group’s mini album focuses on a more serious image, remembering their leader Im Yoon Taek. The intro, ‘Dear’, is just pure a capella+falsetto goodness. ‘Memory’ makes me tear once again. The chorus, I just can’t.. The whole song is one word: bittersweet. ‘I’ll Be There’ is a more cheerful, hopeful song. I can’t dislike this, it’s amazing. ‘TAQ…Remember’ is a slower song compared to the rest. The lighter instrumentals made for a simpler, sweeter ballad about remembering the past.
