Still Not a Fan of U-KISS?

Let me change your opinion on that.

Need a few more reasons?  Trust me, it won’t be long.  I’ll convert you yet by the end of this post.   Read the rest of this entry »





Recent Releases

2 06 2010

Here’s some reviews for some of the more recent Kpop/Jpop releases:

Cabi Song by 2PM/SNSD:

SNSD’s voices are all so pretty.  They definitely outshine 2PM.  I love this song, even if it is a bit repetitive.  And God, can I get a poster of that cover?  😀

Y by MBLAQ:

You can so tell Rain produces this group.  It’s like “Y” is the song that didn’t fit on Rain’s Love Song single, so he gave it to MBLAQ instead.  Haha.  There’s waaaay to much autotune on this minialbum where it’s definitely not needed.  All the tracks sound a lot alike, leaving a lot to be wanting.  The semi-ballad “One Better Day” is the only change of pace, and while I like upbeat dance tunes, it’d be nice to hear something else when I know they’re more dynamic than this.

Bits and Pieces

13 12 2009

A couple thoughts have been jumbling around my head, but none of them are significant to have their own post.  So!

First, Namie Amuro’s new album!

I love PAST < FUTURE.  I love the new image she wants for herself.  The music, the vocals, and the her.  Everything’s awesome.  This is without a doubt my favorite of her albums, and that includes Best Fiction.

Next, lots of Super Junior.

I really enjoy their new live album!  Almost everything is remixed, and it’s made a lot of songs that I hated, such as “Miracle” quite enjoyable!  Donghae’s solo “Beautiful” and Ryeowook’s “Insomnia” really stood out to me.

But, uh, rofl!  SiWon, seriously?  A Casting Crowns song?  We all know you’re Christian, but that and idolism are quite the opposites.  I recognized the song, but when I finally realized what it was, I had a huge “wtf?!” moment before uncontrollable laughter.

And omg, “Gee”.  That is absolutely BRILLIANT.  I couldn’t stop laughing.  I’m so so so delighted that they included this on the album!  XDD  (Feels a bit incomplete without JoKwon, though.)

Next, tried Kara.  They bore me.  “Honey” is catchy, but I can’t find another song I like.  Their lead singer isn’t very attractive.  Yawn.

Finally, I have officially fallen in love with SS501.  Can I marry HyunJoong or YoungSaeng please?  <333





Dream Concert (Part 2)

25 06 2008

After a pretty sucky first few acts on from the 2008 Dream Concert, I’m looking forward to this half (it’s a little over half actually, I might break this into three parts).  It’s got all my favorite Korean artists, and a lot more that I’m familiar with than the last one.  That means -gasp- I’ll have a small idea of what I’m talking about here!!
