Reviewing Great Music Is A Bitch

Lies Mini Album

a short intro about T-ara.
tara is a new girl group from korea.
there was already a buzz about them before they debuted on a radio station before a tv show. which was kinda dumb.
tara is a 6 member girl group.

“Lies (Part I)”
this song starts off with a ballad feel to it, but that quickly fades away into a disco infused dance beat.
the beat is very clean the backing music doesnt clash with the backing vocals. their voice blend really good togther. which is good cause not alot of new or old girl groups can pull that off
i hate to say this,but t-ara reminds me of a younger version of “Jewelry”. this song will have you swaying to the beat.

“Lies (part II)”
i think this is like the radio edit verson, cause the soulful intro is gone. and the song is shorter. the rapping at the is extended.

“Wanna Play”
the rap intro is reeks of 2NE1’s CL
to me they were trying to sound like everyother girl group that is out
the beat is a western feel, but it is catchy! that i will admit.
the beat will have you bobbing your to the beat. their voice are clean cut for this track.

“Lies (Ballad Version)
i was hoping for a real ballad version of this song, well looks like im still going to have to wait. cause this version is no ballad at all, they got rid of the dance beat but kept the backing beat. there’s no real change just its not dance-able. and they kept the rap part in the end of the song. oy!!!!!

Son Dam Bi Mini Album Vol. 2

a review of Son’s second mini album

“Are You Crazy feat. Eric”
some what of a dance song,the beat is simple and clean her voice come’s in clearly. this is an up tempo pop song. the “Rapping” part was a mice touch to the song. this song will have you bumping your head along to the beat.

“Invisible Person”
this is a slow ballad, just her and a piano are the key factors for this song. this song show case’s her singing ability. with out the help of a digitalizer for her voice. now if son could do more song’s like this. i think she will be set.

“No Sympathy”
yet another ballad but she went with an up tempo beat for the song. this song almost has an 80’s feel to it. the beat is clean so once again she comes in clearly. this track is my favorite track form this album.
the melody is soft and yet has a steady flow with her voice.

“Play”
were back to the dance beats and synth’s hooks.
this is an up tempo dance track.this is my second favorite track from this album. the beat is some what messy at times the backing music and vocals atend to over laps her voice.

Electropop Therapy

This is a special review for me, cause first this is one of the very few american artist i love. and second she’s a friend of mine. who is making her way to the music bizz. she has an Ep out called “Electropop Therapy” and a single called “1 U Luv” on Itunes. her name is Chiki. her style i original. her outfits and make up is out of this world. Chiki is one of a kind and is a breath of fresh air to the pop world!

“Too Much Funn”
is an electro pop song.
this song will have you humming along.
this is one of my favorites.
this song is uptempo pop song almost border line dance song
the music does not drown her voice at all.
the back vocals are there but not as strong as some artist have it where it over power’s the main vocals.

“Never Look Down”
okay this song is a dance number not so heavy on the dance beat.
the drums were a nice touch in the song.
this song is an absolute favorite!!
this song is really catchy. the lyrics are great abit on the silly side but i love it. almost at the end of the song. it gets real festive. oh eveyone going dance crazy!

“Fox In The Garden”
this song is an slow tempo pop song.
easy to sway to. the song has more of a carnieval feel to it
this has got to be one of the best slow tempo pop song’s i’ve heard in a long time.

“Monotony”
back to the dance pop music
this song will make you dance in your seat
it will also have you singing along with it as well
this is an uptempo pop song
the backing music is not bad. its clean and the vocals are strong
this song show’s the power range Chiki has with her vocals.
