[EARGASM] “RED LIGHT” by f(x) album review

20140708_seoulbeats_fx

It has been almost a year since f(x)’s second full length album, “Pink Tape”. Now, they’re back with RED LIGHT and ready to blow your minds once again. Even Billboard named them as a group who “solidifies brand of quirky…” and “hipster pop…” and I couldn’t agree more.

To be honest, I was expecting a whole lot from this album since PINK TAPE really blew my mind with its splendid colors! And after a number of plays, here’s what I have to say:

OMO: Re-e-e-e-ed Light! – [f(x)’s Red Light Review]

I anticipated a lot for this f(x) comeback after I realized that they were treated really underrated last year because I felt Pink Tape deserved more than what they have got from last year. So when their ghostly-anime-fugitive-party-girl teasers came out. That expectation just shot up somewhere outside our visible universe. Then the previews happened and that group pic with “WARNING! Five cats will have a surprise attack at 00:00AM” happened and the highlight medley happened and I just can’t help but to expect for the best. So July 3, 2014 finally happened and I played f(x)’s Red Light MV.

So when the phone rang and the beat started then Krystal sang that “Eh Eh Eh Eh Eh Wait A Minute!” and Sulli followed after, The song got my attention but when the drop of beat was made, I knew that there was something wrong and it was just like IGAB once again. I was like “NOOOOOOOOO!!! SM you just didn’t do that again! Not to f(x)! Damn it!”

SM THE BALLAD’S “BREATH” ALBUM REVIEW

~Annyeonghaseyo!

I was tasked (I volunteered, actually) to make an album review for SM the Ballad’s “BREATH”. I got very excited and today, I am much honored to be the second ‘guest author’ in this blog (Yes, I am a guest author). So, I will save the introduction for later :)) .

 

Breath Album Cover

 

 

So, last February 13, 2014, SM Entertainment released the most awaited album, entitled “BREATH”. With the gathering of the new line- up of artists to sing for the album, it surely is interesting to see another concept that defies love in an instance. It consists of 10 tracks, including three versions (Korean, Japanese and Chinese) of the songs ‘Breath’ and ‘Blind’.

The day I watched the teaser for the full album, I concluded that it is a compilation of BREAK- UP songs.  The album is a story that is being unfolded at each of the tracks, and it created a very successful portrayal of “Heart Break”. Cheers to SM! Anyway, let’s get right through the tracks, shall we?

Note: The following plot is made from the writer’s weird imagination. Some parts of the plot came from the lyrics, others are just for internet humor.

 

Breath Plot

**A melody starts off. The clouds are not in good terms with the reader’s feelings. There goes thunder and rain, a story is about to be seen, DEAR**

 

1. DEAR…

This one is a good starting point before hearing the full album itself. I consider this one- minute audio as the ‘mood setter’. With the sound of the rainfall, to the slow piano melody and to the mixing of orchestral sadness, this gradually made my very jolly day into a very sad one. A very effective start for the upcoming BREAK- UP songs.

 

** Both people are holding their phones and they are waiting for each other’s calls. Both are reminiscing good memories and keep letting out a sigh while tears fall to their faces. Each of them shows that they regret their parting to each other, and that they still both love each other the same way as before. They both want to achieve one thing, which is to at least hear each other’s BREATH (Award- Winning Plotline Level:  SM)**

 

SMtheBalladBreathe

 

2. BREATH (sung by Taeyeon (SNSD) and Jonghyun (SHINee) in Korean, f (Krystal) and Changmin/Max (TVXQ!) in Japanese and Chen (EXO) and Zhang Li Yin in Chinese)

This is the best BREAK- UP song I have heard so far. This is the ballad that continues the melody of the first track ‘Dear…’ For what I have seen, it is has a very lonely tune that has a feeling of ‘REGRET’ to it.  The lyrics of the song jive to the feeling of the melody itself, making it my frequently played song on this album.  Also, even when you watch the music video of this song, it creates the most intense gloom. A complete package for a BREAK- UP song. Since it has three versions, the version which struck me the most? I’ll leave it up to you people. (Those three versions are freaking good I can’t even choose which is better!)

 

** In the aftermath, a man had a great loss for his love. He blamed himself for being too into her that it made her tired. The crucial time where he realized that ‘love’ is already gone, ‘greed’ came on a rise instead. He was too BLIND to see it at first. The man tries to forget the past but finds it very hard to do for his love still remains for her.**

 

3. BLIND (sung by Yesung (Super Junior) in Korean and Japanese, and Zhoumi (Super Junior-M) in Chinese)

This song is the best representation of how can love gets to a point that it is too CRAZY to continue. In the lyrics it literally described HEART- BREAK as VERY CRAZY THAT IT LEFT A VERY CRAZY DEEP SCAR (soo crazy). This song created a good feeling that the listeners can relate and follow through until the end of the song. It taught me a great lesson: BEWARE, OVERFLOWING LOVE KILLS. LOVE MODERATELY. I can say it is a hell of a good story. (fan-fic worthy, everyone!)

 

**The boy thinks it’s too easy for her to forget their love, but it was the same instance for her. She tries to put those good memories on a blur but it gets clearer after. She kept on shedding tears. Therefore she shouted…**

4. SET ME FREE (sung by Taeyeon of SNSD)

                I love this song as well. I think it is the girl version of the song Blind, looking like it is the response of the girl to what the man is feeling right now. For what I have experienced, the lyrics are so remarkable that everyone can follow through unlike other songs that do not repeat the same lines.
Looking at the plot, you can feel the way the woman tries so hard to forget those past memories of them, resembled to the song as her precious stones to him. The heartfelt melody gradually puts you into sadness that the song should give. Nice Job Taeyeon.

**After some time, the man has moved on, and he disregards what his love would be thinking on what he does before. He is now thinking only for himself. But he still remembers those good days, feeling like he already had no reason for his doings to be hated nor loved. (The writer stops his too heartfelt plot and goes on shopping. He sees Chen of EXO, got excited for some time. Being an EXO-stan, he gets back to typing his album review and tries not to be too biased about his review for “A DAY WITHOUT YOU”)**

5. A DAY WITHOUT YOU (sung by Jonghyun of SHINee Chen of EXO)

(I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I SO. LOVE. IT!! CHEAN IS SINGING THEN.. oops, sorry XD) *coughs. Let’s get straight to the point.
The slow beat in this song slightly gets rid of all the sadness in the earlier songs, since it changes from very sad to moderately-sad-to-happy state. It’s simply exceptional to see how the flow of the tracks in this album gradually changes your mood. (When I hear this song I feel like shopping, which is my unique compliment.) In the song, it was described that he feels free after his break- up with his love, but he is still longing for her.
It’s a good duet by Jonghyun and Chen. I also like the part where they said, “I can’t believe, yes it’s true…” in English. Their extraordinary vocal ranges always give me goosebumps, a good blend of singers in a nice song.
**Both stated: “WHEN I WAS with you, WHEN YOU WERE with me, we used to have those good times. I keep on recalling them. But today, I think it’s time to really let go of that feeling. Like what they say, there will come a time where we will change. I hope you will be happy. Goodbye.” And thus ended their wonderful love to each other… *END**

 

6. WHEN I WAS… WHEN U WERE…(sung by f (Krystal) and Chen of EXO)

This song is so meaningful it made my mind appreciate love and acceptance. Each line of the lyrics is closely related to each other, signifying love and its deep connection to the seasons. It’s also fun to read in the lines of the song in which it recalls the good things that happened with his/her love, and they look at it positively than before. As what the song says, ‘seasons endlessly change’, and therefore the same as through with love: it endlessly changes until we find the right kind of meaning to it, with the right one at your side.

A scene from ‘Flower Boy Next Door’

The melody of the guitar and more feels like it came from Flower Boy Next Door OST. It fits in the part where they look afar from each other through their glass walls and windows. It’s a good HEART BREAK song that keeps its melody moderately up. The part where the long ‘ooohs’ occur gives me a relaxing feeling. It’s a nice song, my favorite song in the album as well.

————————-

                All in all I liked all the songs in the Album ‘BREATH’ . A nice way to see SM Entertainment do some artist collaborations to keep making and developing wonderful voices, as to what is present, showcasing their balladeers. Even though I used the word ‘HEART BREAK’ six times and made a plot for this album, I hope to see another volume of SM the Ballad that did a great job this year. Congratulations SME!

 

By the way, thank you very much to Try A Little Kpop for this opportunity.
