This song is enjoyable! It definitely has a Jonghyun vibe to it (seeing as he took part in it) but it’s a good vibe for me this time around 🙂
2: “1 of 1”
Honestly, I thought this would be another “View” at first. I thought I wouldn’t like the song first listen but I ended up really liking it! It’s nice to have a title track I can like right off the bat without adjusting to it like I did with “View”. It’s catchy! One of the reasons I like this is because I feel like it has one of the best bridges in K-Pop songs ever. I love the bridge! ❤
3: “Feel Good”
I love this song so much! It’s definitely my favorite on the album–hands down! Give this track five stars XD Everyone had their parts and showcased their voices beautifully, too 🙂
4: “투명 우산 (Don’t Let Me Go)”
Known as “Invisible Umbrella” ❤ This song is one of the best on the album! I like the rain at the end 🙂 Nice!
So far, so good, right? Well….this is where things get a little tricky for me. I don’t dislike this song but I don’t love it, either. Call it average? Just…eh, doesn’t do much for me…
6: “Don’t Stop”
This reminds me of a song from the “Odd” album. Like a slow version of “Black Hole”, maybe? XD Eh, not bad! I remember it, at least…
The intro sounds like a racing game track from “Super Nintendo” XD You know what I’m talking about, right? The background chipmunk sounding thing is a bit unnecessary. Again, not bad.
8: “U Need Me”
I hate it. I cannot listen to this, SHINee, I’m sorry. I love my boys but definitely not this song! It’s just…annoying…
9: “So Amazing”
I feel like the chorus is good! I like the chorus! The rest of the song…is just…not memorable? It’s just lacking, I don’t know. But the chorus is good 🙂
Rating: 3½/5 Stars
This album was very hard for me. I felt three stars would be harsh but four stars too much–leaving to decide the middle!
There were songs I liked a lot and others were just in the “meh” category for me. While SHINee certainly delivered an 80s/90s album (which they deserve five stars for!), I found I’m just not really interested in that musical era too much.
For those who love that era, definitely listen to this album! It would be gold for you 🙂
For me? I feel like the rating it got is fair.
I wish I could rate it five stars for the fact SHINee can do any type of music they want and do it well! I wish I could give it five stars for SHINee always trying something different for themselves and their fans–not going with the rest of the K-Pop industry (which is why K-Pop songs sound the same these days). But…I can’t 😦
Thank you, SHINee!!! ❤
