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 .
