1: “Lucifer (Japanese ver.)”
It’s sad…how much I love the original and hate the Japanese one 😦
2: “Amigo (Japanese ver.)”
This version is better but the song is still meh…
3: “Juliette (Japanese ver.)”
Actually, it’s one of the better Japanese versions. It’s not too cringy.
I’ve always liked this song. Nice piano arrangements ❤ And good adlibs by Jonghyun that aren’t hammy 😛
5: “To Your Heart”
This song is way too underrated. Give it some love, people! It deserves love.
6: “Always Love”
Whenever I listen to the original–I keep expecting the tribal part XD Hey, that’s the version I grew up on!
7: “Replay (Japanese ver.)”
I was raised on the original Korean one, so I’m sorry to say this is a bit cringy…eh, I get used to it enough, though…but it doesn’t make me like it any better!
The album was doing so good, too. I just want this song to end 😦
9: “Love Like Oxygen (Japanese ver.)
Earplugs! Someone give me earplugs >.< Ugh…I can’t take this version…
10: “Hello (Japanese ver.)
I heard it once and never wanted to hear it ever again. It will stay that way! 😦
11: “The SHINee World (Japanese ver.)”
Sure, make the song even worse. I didn’t think it was possible! Everything sounds so forced…
I like this song a lot better than I used to. It’s okay! Not worth having in my playlist, though. Love the performance! 😀
I love both this version and the Korean version. One of SHINee’s best!
Rating: 3/5 Stars
This album would get more if it weren’t for the cringe-worthy Japanese versions. Other than that, it’s not a bad album at all. If I were Japanese and got remakes of their original songs (which is basically all this is), I would give it four stars. However, I’m too raised on Korean for me to appreciate the Japanese versions, sorry…
