I just saved the whole tracks in my laptop. Not yet listening to it but I’m very excited >.<

TARANTALLEGRA is the magic spell that causes uncontrollable dance and it is the sensational title song of XIA’s First solo album. XIA composed and arranged the song and JUNO wrote the lyrics. You could fee the strong beat and various sound. The song becomes more fabulous by the rap featured by Flowsik and choreography from Jeri Slaughter and his team who worked with Christina Aguilera, Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. Now, it is time to fall in XIA’s spell! (CJESJYJ)

overal, my focus on this album isn’t the production, but Junsu himself ❤ . For an idol who turned into a real musician, I  definately appriciate this from the bottom of my heart. He composed most of the tracks by himself, it’s just such a brilliant point that most of korean singers don’t have nowadays. This album is totally his, it represent himself from every corner of his personality.

I was quite disappointed with some number of up-beat tracks, can I use the word ‘boring’? it’s exactly it is. Tarantallegra is the best up-beat track in this whole album, it brings a lot of enthusiasm to listen, both lyric and arrangement is very nice. Eventhough it’s repetitive quite often but the in other words “it’s worth to listen.

The korean version of Intoxication is totally much better than the previous japanese version. Junsu didn’t lose his great magnificient vocal and there is something different that I find it hard to describe 😀 I just like it.

We know that Junsu is a superb in ballads. The ballad tracks work well on my ears, I think it’s because of Junsu, just by flaunting his beautiful vocal, I think I’m going melted 😀 . The track I Dont Like Love impressed me a lot because of I’m watching the drama, it’s inserted in the drama Rooftop Prince so I immediately love the song after it’s released.

I especially recommend the song “Lullaby”, it’s very different from what Junsu (or TVXQ) usually sing. It’s enjoyable & relaxing. I think he got talent in creating this kind of song. Beside it shows his vocal too, he should produce more songs :D.


Well, I am glad of this album, eventhough it doesn’t win as perfection score but Junsu has win my heart no matter what 🙂 . I also feel so happy that Jaejoong contributed for composing the track “No Gain” . How I wish the crown prince Yoochun contributes too. He’s damn great in composing/writting songs, right? >.< He must be too busy because of filming drama.  I’m looking forward for Yoochun’s comeback in music 😀 . I hope JYJ would bring the best pieces for their upcoming album^^ Hwaiting

Haven’t done listening to it, and can’t wait finish it so I can write all the things in my mind here 😛

Her agency Loen Entertainment stated, “The album has been worked on for a long time, and the exclusive content included in the special limited edition will enable fans to better understand the album production process. It’s a special gift from IU to those fans who have waited a long time.” (allkpop)

After I took some preview, this album is totally different from her first album. Her first album might be cute and energic, and this one came out a bit mature, showing how she alreayd grows up in music. She also did some jazz in some tracks.

Musicians like Kim Gwang Jin, Yoon Sang, Jung Jae Hyung, Lee Juk, Kim Hyung Suk, Jung Suk Won, Kim Hyun Chul, Lee Min Su, Corinne Bailey Rae, G. Gorilla, and Ra.D contributed to the album. IU is also being noticed for having a hand in the creation of 6 of the tracks on the album. The 6 songs will include covers of singles that IU herself has enjoyed since before her debut as well as new songs. (allkpop)

Well I hope she would release such an acoustic album, like the song Teacher. Her majority is in guitar, her agency should look at it . I look forward for her next music 🙂

[Album] Wonder Girls – Wonder World

My Rating: 10/10
terrific! If it’s not because of Wonder Girls. I wouldn’t back here just to click “new post”
Title: 2nd Album – WONDER WORLD
Artist: Wonder Girls
Release: 2011.11.07
Conductor: JYP Entertainment
Language: Korean
Total Size: 92 MB
Bitrate: 320 kbps


01 G.N.O.
02 Be My Baby
03 Girls Girls
04 Me, in
05 Sweet Dream
06 Stop!
07 Dear. Boy
08 두고두고 (Long Long Time)
09 SuperB
10 Act Cool (feat. San E)
11 Be My Baby (Ra.D Mix)
12 Nu Shoes

In 2007, they released their debut single “Irony” , as HyunA left, Yubin replaced her and they released their 1st album “The Wonder Years”. Far away, after they promoted Nobody as their international debut, Sunmi then left the group and replaced by Lim.

It took so long for this album to be released. I should thankz JYP for letting the girls to make a come back.

I dont expect that they would release an album like this. I just download the whole track after I watch “Be My Baby” in youtube. While listening to the whole track, I can’t stop clicking the replay button 😀 . I can’t compare this to their first album. Both are good album.

>> G.N.O – or ‘Girls Night Out’ was compossed by the member, Ye Eun. It’s quite rare to find a girlgroup member compossed a song, well Ye Eun made it, it’s so shocking. Though I feel this song is a bit ‘whatever’  , I found it still worth the play button. I love the part “girls night out.. girls night out” .. so full of spirit, it’s a hyper opening track.

>> Be My Baby – another shocking good news is coming from Sohee. I almost can’t believe that she sounds the most here, in the late singles, Sohee always got a less part , even it were not  interesting parts though, and it’s undeniable that she ruined her part. But here, it’s like she’s the leading vocalist. She has a lot of progessions, even her voice is way better. I hope she will do well in live performance. I am afraid that the record version is so much helped by audio software or anything. Well, Ye Eun sounds so different, she didn’t do knocking high note or anything else, she sounds a bit nasal but still save. Overall, I am addicted to this song. The intro is cute, so catchy and still bring their retro sense a bit. It’s a genius choice to place this song as the hit single.

>> Girls Girls – very interesting track. It turned slow and relaxed with nice narration in the first, and girls turned to sing. What should I say? .. hmmm…. They never released a song like this before, it’s slow, relaxed, enjoyable, saxophone, and full of messages. I thought the writer must be a girl 😀 . The lyric is addressed to all the girls in the world.

>> Me, in – I have no idea why it is called “Me, in”. I read from allkpop, The song is a modernized electric guitar-heavy version of Shin Jung Hyun‘s “The Beauty”, a Korean classic. Well, I think the girls tried something new here, they never do rock before. If I would give them a rate, I think they almost get 10/10 rockzzz . I would prefer if they released more song like this. Ye Eun is so impressed me with her rocking high note in the first, and Yubin’s rap is too short for a rap-killer like her. Geezz.. I love this album! I should give JYP a bunch of flying kisses over this 😀

>> Sweet Dream – this is the only song I’d rather not to talk about 😛 . I really have no idea after listening the song, even the title is just so-so  and not so much different with most of Kpop song nowadays.

>> Stop – it’s rock again! Ommo.. this album is really something new! They bring a super new experiment into Kpop scene. Compare with Me,in , I think Me,in is so much hyper than this. The cowboy element in the intro reminds me a bit to SNSD’s Hoot intro. 😀 but the rest are totally different.

>> Dear Boy – typically JYP. We turned into tender ballad for awhile. Yes, Sohee took the chorus part. She sounds good in her way. And I haven’t talked about Sunye yet O_0 . Sure, Sunye will bring her best, especially in the song like this. But in this album, she seems so much helped by Sohee, Ye Eun and Lim as vocalist too. 🙂  .. Ye Eun shows a brilliant vibration in the adlib 🙂 . Love her way!

>> 두고두고(Long Long Time) –  my feeling goes the same as I listen to Girls Girls. This song has a good lyric, well concept too. It described how a girl can’t hide her feeling that no matter and whatever the boy did, she still love him. Even, when the boy did mistake or do something bad, .. though it seems like she should stop to love him but she felt like her eyes didn’t listen and her heart didn’t listen , and whatever he did, she will love him though.. woowww.. love song is love song ~.~

>> SuperB – seems like I’m not in the mood of talking about a song like this. Rather than I ruin my words, I should to be honest that this track is whatever I say 😛  All I have to say is this one shows how Wonder Girls grow up through american type of electronic beat.

>> Act Cool – I have been waiting for this turn, that’s why I skipped the previous track and make it fast so I can meet this song 😀 . I catch some SO HOT intro a bit then it turned into ACT COOL!! A super cool hip hop track. LIM own this one! She kills the rap part!!! Even for the fast part too. In another way, she reminds me a lot to Che’Nelle and HyunA a bit. Her english is good. All that she need is just more space of rapping. If you watch Wonder Girls’s latest cover of B.O.B “Nothin’ On You”, your replay button will got hacked on and on. I bet, it’s a good cover.

>> Be My Baby (Ra.D Mix) – so far so nice. I love how they turned slow here. So contrast with the original version. It’s same like when Wonder Girls recorded a slow version of Nobody (Nobody rainstone mix) . So nice, and enjoyable.

>> Nu Shoes – A good choice to place this as the last track. As the opening track is so powerful , so this last track is the strongest one and full english. It gave me a feeling , when I about to stop the album from my playlist, I’ll change my mind and back to the previous previous track, listening it over again and again 😀 . it works on me! Especially because this one is just so girls and girls! You know what I mean, when they talk about Gucci boot, Manolo Blanik and bla bla blaahh… , so hypnotic!

My Rating: 6/10

I dont know what happened with this album, people praise it and the label promote it like the best, but it’s not like that much. I dont find some tracks that would me make addicted, they’re on their average. This album is the same like Oh! album. Even some tracks are too much edited in digital effect (yes! they sing with it), not so much showing a voice skill. Taeyeon do the best out of all. For Jessica, she is one of the best vocalist like other say, but seriously she is not that best, she is just best comparing with girls in her group. sorry for being too sharp tounge, but I tell the truth .. the up-beat tracks re so tiring, makes my ears work hard..

>> Mr.Taxi this one is the best track, catchy beat and nice lyric flow. Taeyeon dominated a bit, and she sounds good. Those supersonic, hypertonic .. OMG SM can’t stop, they already did it with Mirotic, Hurricane Venus, Ring Ding Dong ..

>> Run Devil Run this one not much different with the korean version, only replace the lyric with the japanese words, but Sunny’s fast words is fixed better here.

>> Genie the korean is better than this one. But it’s quite decent, it would be a great track if there is no korean version, but it already prove that the korean version is better.

>> Gee cover song again, same like other. Only different lyric, and the korean version work better. There is something different with their vocal here, too sounding cute until I heard it like a kid song.

>> Hoot  no stranger track again. Ok, I dont need to explain that it’s just in different lyric.

>> You-aholic this track that I called too much electronic effect edit. It’s a bit mess, but it’s really different with what SNSD usually sing.

>>Bad Girl the intro “oh oh oh” reminds me a lot to BoA’s Hurricane Venus. Then the song goes different, a bit catchy

>> Let It Rain this is a decent track, a bit dark a bit light, it’s cool the repetition in the chorus. Let It rain (let it) rrrain.. (let it) rraiin … 😀

>> Born To Be A Lady listening to intro, I thought it would be a rock type, but it turned slow, Taeyeon start the song. And I expect it would be a melodious song. It’s pop slow and relaxed, a cooldown track. Good that they placed it in the last track, you would be a bit tired with all previous up-beat track and this last track would be the refresher! 😀 such a different track. The instrument sound so familiar, so it grow fast on my ear. And I still wondering, I never heard they sing this kind of song . o_O

not listening to the full album yet, whoaa I’m so slow now, sorry sorry T_T.

let’s get some  random review:

>> Play Ur Love stole my attention, such a nice melody, so relaxed and ejoyable, I love this kind of music. But the intro really reminds me to Mariah Carey song “Bye Bye”, only the intro but maybe Seriously they have a lot of beautiful songs, though their prime style is dance , Pledis produced such a lovely beautiful songs.

>> When I Fall (2011 new recording) I much prefer previous version, this version turned well in the beginning, even I am so excited first, feel so good but some beat disreact the emotion in the chorus and ut turned different. The previous version is more emotionally perfect.

>> Shampoo It’s full beat. I’m not so much interested in this song, still can’t get what Shampoo mean for this song. But I’m impressed with Bekah’s rap as always.

>> Virgin since this is the tittle song, I’ve been expected it would be great, yeah it’s great, dance track, sound so dark. Nice rapping again.’

>> Dream such a bubble song, wonder that After School have such a bubbly song, they sound sweet, cute and girly.

>> Because of You (2011 new recording) I just hear it the same, not so much different with the previous version. I love this one as well as the previous version.

>> Raina solo beautiful song again, nice melody. so lovely romantic, the chorus grow well on me, you should check it, girlz… she has a nice voice as always.

ok, guys.. sorry for not reviewing all the tracks and it’s bad that I lose my skill in reviewing, this is a bit decent and tooo brief 😦
