Cos they’re not anymore, you know what I’m saying?
1. Intro – The idea behind Intro tracks is that it’s supposed to be able to summarize what the sort of sound that the album is about in a short period of time. This one is far too short and it feels really out of place given that the rest of the songs are upbeat dance tracks.
2. Bingeul Bingeul – I love this song and the only complaint I have about it is that Kiseob doesn’t have a single line, which makes for really awkward radio lives. And that “You make me tingle tingle, ” line. It’s catchy, not too repetitive, all in all a pretty strong track for the first promotion.
3. Without You – I’m on the fence with this song to be honest. On one hand, it doesn’t sound fresh – I listen to it and get the impression that I’ve heard this song before from another group – but at the same time, I appreciate the attempt to mesh their older, less-techno sound with their new image. Maybe it’ll grow on me, I don’t know.
4. What – One of my two least favorite tracks though I can’t really put my finger on the why. Something about this song just grates my nerves, probably because it gets repetitive not just in the lyrics but in the general tone of the song.
5. Bang Bang Bang – This is my favorite song in the whole album because it reminds me of a more old-school era of the boybands (think Get Down or maybe Everybody by Backstreet Boys) for some reason. It’s catchy, but not annoyingly so (though I do wonder about that one line of Alexander’s about having the fire or something like that – overkill?) and it definitely does its job as a dance track because it’s making me want to dance all over the room.
6. Dancing Floor – Again, not a favorite. I think it’s a little too repetitive for my taste, though it does sound like it would be fun to perform. Maybe if they do a live, I’ll like it more.
7. Man Man Ha Ni (Remix) – If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I think Man Man Ha Ni was a strong enough song not to have needed a remix, though admittedly it did look cool when they were performing it live on music shows.
8. OK (Remix) – Okay, I listened to the original and the remix several times, I didn’t really hear a glaring difference but for some reason, I like the remix better than the original. I can’t explain it.
9. I Like You – Yeah, I totally do not get the purpose of this remix.
10. Talk To Me (Remix) – I liked the original better.
11. Not Young – I would’ve liked this better had they not added the techno beats after the first “OH-OHH.” and just before the first pre-chorus. I mean, I’m not going to lie, as lulzy as it was, I really liked the original. If they had kept the techno out of this, it would’ve sounded way better.
12. Give It To Me (Remix) – I love it except for that weird little kiddy voice in the middle. To be honest, I heard the original just after I listened to the remix and I think they got it right, this song is really meant to be more upbeat.
