Reviewing Great Music Is A Bitch

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.

Son Dam Bi Mini Album Vol.1

here is a review of son’s first mini album.

“intro”
short electrik music and talking with an voice digital.
pretty cool if you ask me.nothing to heavy and nothing to over the top.

“Bad Boy (Ballad version)”
just a piano is all you need for some songs.
and that is true in this case. son’s voice blends in with the piano very well. although this song very short.i would have love to seen son take on an ballad with out backing beats. it makes me wonder? was she was scared to do it? or does she have what it takes?

“그만하자”
this is an up tempo dance track. one of my favorites on this mini album
the beat is clean,its not drowning her out at all. her voice is not alterd that much. this song will make you do the bobble head dance.

“반대말”
this is a slow ballad song, no dance beat at all. thank god i have a ballad that has a dance beat to it.
i myself thinks that this song show case’s her strong vocals
her voice almost seems bare, and to be honest she does have somewhat of a beautiful voice.

“Bad Boy(INST)”
i love this song,its bad ass even with out the lyrics.
this song always has me dancing.

“Bad Boy”
this song is a total dance track.
the music does drown her out at times but you dont notice it. this song is my favorite track on this album.

“입다 질린 옷”
cool pop song,the beat has a steady flow to the song. her voice is not drown out by the back ground music.the beat is very clean and simple.this is one of her better pop songs.

Amoled

this is a joint single colab with After School.who son dam bi would have been apart of. this song is for a cell phone that just came out in korea.

“Amoled”
this song is an up tempo dance track
son dam bi takes the lead vocals,which kinda drowns out after school
making it her song so to speak.
their voices are so alterd, the backing music is too much
yeah its a dance song. BUT the beat could have been more clean
and their voices would have been more human instead of singing computers.
:NOW NO WAY IM BEING ANTI TO BOTH OF THEM, I AM HUGE FAN OF THEM BOTH: but this song could have been so much better

Type B-Back To The 80’s

a short review for Son Dam Bi’s album “Type B”

son’s debut album is a mixter of freestyle,80’s dance and some ballads
she is known as he female rain. yes she can sing,dance and now she is acting in a her first drama.
okay enough about that

okay music wise this album is good.
good blend of dance and ballads.
some of the songs show case her vocals which is not bad, but not out of this world either. its above mediokar. but her two mini album’s are kinda better then this album.meaning she could have put some of those b-sides on this album. some of the ballads on this album are okay.
ill be honest she needs to stick with the dance songs.i dont think her voice is strong enough for the ballads. she also has two remix tracks on this album. i myself think she should have kept the original versions of the songs. all an all this album is grood,if your looking for a good dance/freestyle album this is the one to get
