SuperM – Tiger Inside: Kpop Music Review

It took me a while, but I’m here now. Let’s check out SuperM’s latest digital single – “Tiger Inside” 

(Please note – this is a real-time review, meaning I am typing down my exact thoughts while listening to this song.)

Reaction to Official MV:

  • Starting with Ten always gets my attention. HE LOOKS FINEEEE!!!
  • “100” wasn’t exactly my cup of tea, so I have my fingers crossed on this one.
  • I love the entry beat and melody.
  • Nah, does Mark have a mullet?
  • Honestly, mullets are either a hard no or a subtle pass for me.
  • I love the instrumental. It’s giving me a dark/martial arts vibe.
  • I’ve noticed that the melodies in most SuperM songs change too quickly. I don’t know if it’s just me, but before my ear can adapt to a sound, new sections come in with totally different rhythms.
  • These sudden changes make it hard for me to enjoy the song on my first listen, but I appreciate the experimental production style.
  • I’m just 0.43 seconds into “Tiger Inside” and am hoping they serve.
  • Okay, Mark is rocking the mullet. I’m not mad.
  • Taeyong was disrespectful with that growl during his rap.
  • This pandemic is causing SM Entertainment to go back to their box music video ways. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  • I still love the visuals, though. It’s perfect for the theme of this song.
  • That deep black eyeliner on Mark is fire.
  • Baekhyun is always going off in all their songs.
  • My favourite outfits are the black/blue and gold ones –
  • I’m going to listen to this song again without the visuals before giving my final thoughts.
  • After paying more attention to the vocals and music, I can see myself getting down with “Tiger Inside”. My ears love it more with each new listen.
  • I enjoyed a few melodies here and there. I absolutely love the rap flows, but I’m not in love with the entire song yet.
  • Therefore it gets a 9/10 from me.

The group consists of seven members – Taemin from SHINee, Baekhyun & Kai from EXO, TaeyongMark from NCT 127 and finally TenLucas from WayV.

(Please note – this is a real-time review, meaning I am typing down my exact thoughts while listening to this song.)

Reaction to Official MV:

  • Oh, sweet whispering harmony.
  • I love Lucas’ intro. They might not give him many parts, so its good to see him first.
  • Very energetic start, and all the boys look good.
  • I am enjoying the colourful and techno edits on this music video.
  • Another EDM track, but let’s see how it goes.
  • Ten, Ten, TEN!!! My boy always looks beautiful.😍
  • Okay, Mark, come in with the flow, and Baekyun slid in perfectly with his soft voice. His vocals are top-notch.
  • I can see the budget on this music video was limitless.
  • SuperM’s music videos are always iconic.
  • The futuristic visuals for this song are stunning.
  • Their makeup artist really went in with black and red eyeliners.πŸ˜‚
  • Taemin is always looking like a snack that I can only admire from afar. I love him.
  • Okay, whoever put those grayish-blue contacts on Ten deserves a raise.
  • Choreography wise, the boys are killing things.
  • I really love the energy of this song.
  • I think my favourite section is the bridge with Taemin breakdown and Baekyun’s iconic high note.
  • Alright. I’m going to listen to this song again before giving my final thoughts.
  • “100” by SuperM is a great song. I like it, but I’m not in love.
  • I might come to really enjoy it after a few more plays, but as of now, it gets a 9/10 from me.

EXO – OBSESSION: Kpop Music Review

I am back, and there is a long list of music videos/albums to be reviewed, so let us get right into it.

EXO released their new album titled OBSESSION on the 27th of November. The title track is also called “Obsession”. I saw the teasers, and I love the dark concept. I know I am very late with this review, but a sis was so busy these past few weeks. All the same, I am so excited.

(This is a real-time review, meaning I am typing down my exact thoughts while listening to this song.)

Reaction to Official MV/Title Track:

  • Right from the start, I am already into this sound.
  • Is it just me, or does this song give off a trap feel?
  • The beat drop at the beginning already testifies for how epic this song is about to be.
  • Baekhyun gives me life.
  • The visuals kind of remind me of “Monster”.
  • For some reason, Kai’s crop tops keep getting shorter and shorter with each comeback.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  • Okay, when Suho came in, I was shocked. Boy…who told you to look so beautiful and sound so amazing?
  • Oooohh, what is this – “I don’t think so.” 
  • The beat for this track is insane. I LOVE.
  • It is official, “Obsession” is already a BOP and a half. EXO came hard with this one.
  • The visuals for this music video are exceptional.
  • Chanyeol’s raps are always on point. He stays killing all his parts.
  • My favourite section is definitely when they get to sing, “I don’t think so.”
  • The choreography looks good. I am ready to watch a live performance and dance practise.
  • Yesss to that groovy bridge and Chen just slew me with his beautiful high note. I am in space at this point. I LOVE THIS SONG.
  • Also, Sehun’s slow talk-rap was the perfect build-up into the bridgeπŸ‘πŸ‘. The transition was flawless. He came in smooth and left us more space to appreciate the vocals.
  • So basically, they are battling another version of themselves. Okay.
  • EXO’s harmonies are to die for. They like to flex with their vocals a lot. My ears have been blessed.
  • Nah… HOLD UP, Chen, Baekhyun and Suho just disrespected me with vocals towards the end, but I am not complaining.
  • All members did great for this comeback. Everyone had their stand out moment, but I could not pinpoint it all because I was too busy grooving to the song.
  • Suho stood out a lot to me. That red suit with his red hair and then when they shot him in black/white… DAMN. Also, excuse me but ABS FOR DAYYYS…πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜. I am in love with his look for this comeback.
  • I have to watch this music video a few more times to take everything in.
  • There is no argument here, “Obsession” is a BOP, and I am ready to play this song on repeat. I already added it to my playlist. Thank you, EXO.
  • This song is definitely a 10/10 for me.

I have to go now. I will be checking out the full album later on at my own personal time.

Until my next post, take care.πŸ’•πŸ’•

 

EXO – Electric Kiss: Song Of The Week

The chosen song for this week is “Electric Kiss” by EXO.star_5bdbf641303acEXO is a South Korean boy band signed to SM Entertainment. They made their official debut in 2012 with the single “Mama.” They are one of the first kpop groups I ever listened to. I remember trying to sing along to “Wolf” and “Growl.” I also use to try to dance along with them. All I can say about the dancing part is that it definitely did not turn out wellπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

“Electric Kiss” is from EXO’s first Japanese album Countdown. It was released on the 31st of January, 2018.

This song is such a BOP. I cannot believe I never heard about it until earlier this week. I was seriously missing out on one of the grooviest songs in history. It is so good. There is no way anyone can listen to “Electric Kiss” and just stay still. The music just makes you want to move.  EXO sounds fantastic on this track, and the choreography is also outstanding. I am going to leave a video of their dance practice at the end of this post.

I hope you all enjoy listening to “Electric Kiss.”

Bye for now.

EXO – TEMPO: Song Of The Week

The chosen song for this week is Tempo.

“Tempo” was released by Korean pop group EXO, as part of their 2018 comeback album titled; Don’t Mess Up My Tempo. I am not really into EXO, so I only check out their title tracks, and I definitely have the specific songs I love from them. When I first heard this song, I did not take any interest in it, but I recently watched a reaction video for it and decided to give it a second listen. I guess the second time was the charm needed to allow me to appreciate the song more.

My favourite part of the song is the little Capella (Acapella) section they had towards the end of the track. I felt that their voices really shined throughout that section. It also made the song more groovy.  So a thumbs up to EXO for blessing my ears.
