Reviewing Great Music Is A Bitch


a review of BoA’s First English Album
NOTE:i maybe harsh about this album,but that does not make me an anti BoA fan,i have much love for her and i wish her all the best:

“Did Ya”
this is an upbeat tempo pop song,
the intro is great it was like a mix of 60’s lounge music
then it blends with the pop beats.
i think this should be her next single.
her vocals are blended kinda bad in this song,but none the less its a good song.
i rate this song a 4 out of 5

“Dress Off”
this is like anathem sort of way
saying “F-you” “take a good look,you’ll just have memories now”
BoA’s vocals i sorta better then “Did Ya” in this case but
she try’s to over power the back beats and noise in the song
so kinda sound like a bunch of noise.
but the dance beats are catchy
i rate this song a 3 out of 5

“Eat You Up”
i am so burnt out on this song.
there are 4..yes 4 different videos for this song
i love the simple dance beat,its more clear and her can her vocals
the style of choice for vocal wise is…..speak and spell
yeah thats it she sounds like a speak and spell.
i alot of people agreed on it.
i rate this song a 3 1/2 out of 5

this song here is a DANCE ANTHEM
the club goers would eat this shit up
it has a very strong dance beat.just like “Eat You Up”
this too is clean not that much noise.
i myself like this song.
“Report to the dance floor”
i love that line.
i rate this song a 5 out of 5.

“Girls On Top”
i was heart broken when i saw this on her album…..
this is a BoA classic.
she made it modern
its not the same as the “Original”
i rate this song a 2 out of 5
(you just dont mess with a classic)

“Hypnotic Dancefloor”
awww yes bring on the heavy synth hooks
and over bareing back beats.
the loops doesnt fit in this song.
i do like the lyrics
i guess cause its something kylie minogue would have done.
i guess you can say that the song is simple.
although this one reeks of britney spears…….she sounds like her in this, i shit you not.
i rate this song a 3 out of 5.

“I Did It For Love (featuring Sean Garrett)”
okay i wont lie BoA sounds like a computer singing
and the lyrics are atad bit ghetto.but you know what?
the music saves the song.
Sean Garrett….i have no idea who this singer is
but if he needs to use a digital voice enhancer that means he cant sing.
this song should be on the raido.
i rate this song a 4 out of 5.

“Look Who’s Talking (Cover)”
this song is badass…..if we were back in the 80s
it sounds like the theam to “Night Rider”
im just waiting for K.I.T to come out and sing.
i myself dont care for this song.
i rate this song a 2 1/2 out of 5.

the intro reminds of anna tuschyia’s “Virgin Cat”
with the whole “hey hey hey hey”
kylie minogue has a song that is almost like this one back in 2007…..gee i wonder where they got the idea for this song.
the back beat is too much with the drums,the “hey’s”in the back ground.
BoA’s vocals are semi clear though so thats a plus!
i rate this song a 3 out of 5.

here is another club banger
i love the synth back beats and simple dance blend
i like this song.
this song will have you dancing in your room,car.anywhere you go
this song will have you in a trance.
i rate this song a 5 out of 5.

” Touched”
a music box melody as a main beat?
i was like “WTF”
but it works
this is yet another dance club song.
BoA’s vocals are relly clear, i can understand her!
i give her props for using a music box melody for a the main beat.
i rate this song a 5 out of 5.

so here are my thoughts
this album has its flaws
like having the same beat
being to digital with the voice enhancer
but over all its an okay album
i the album a 3 out of 5.
