These girls finally have released their first mini album, I’m sure lots of fans were anticipated about because I am! I’ve been following f(x) ever since their debut song LA chA TA and their music is really the type that I like. These girls are back with a new concept, more edgy and epic (if you have seen their comeback photos or the MV teaser you should know). Their promoting song NU ABO actually mean New Blood where ABO is all the blood type, it’s a weird name but it actually makes sense when it’s explained.
Overall I really love this mini album.
- NU ABO
- Mr. Boogie
- Ice Cream
- ME + U
- Surprise Party
- Sorry (Dear, Daddy)
NU ABO is one of my favorite song, a really up beat dance song. I love the heavy beats and the “nanananana” part is really catchy. It really has a different vibe from the rest of the Kpop in these days. Their new concept are perfect for this song and I can’t wait for the MV to be release as I can expect that the dance will be awesome.
Mr. Boogie was a song they sang during their debut showcase even before LA chA TA was release. This song was highly loved by a lot of people and it was disappointing that it wasn’t included in their LA chA TA or Chu single but now it’s included in their mini album it satisfied lots of people. I don’t really listen to this song much since there wasn’t a CD version of it but now there is I really love this song. It has a really good beat and the chorus part is smothering.
Ice Cream, I was like WTF? a cutesy song all of a sudden? When I listen to it the first time I didn’t like it that much but after a few more listen I start to like it. It’s a cute, upbeat, relaxing song, a song that can make you happy or maybe makes you want to eat ice cream? I like the rapping towards near the end of the song it somehow makes it less… cutesy?
ME + U, the first time I heard it was with my headphone on and OMG I think I went deaf with the high pitch voices for the verse parts. The chorus part is actually pretty good, just didn’t like the really high pitch parts.
Surprise Party, a mid tempo song sometime to smoother my ears after the high pitch from ME + U. An average but nice song, I like this song it has the common beat of a mid tempo song.
Sorry (Dear, Daddy), a Krystal and Luna duet song the two vocalist. Ballad songs seem to be always sang by Krystal and Luna, both of them has a amazing voice but I hope the rest of the members also get to sing a ballad song together as well. Anyways, this song is beautiful and really shows both of these girls’ amazing voices. I’m sure we’ll get to see a live of this song sometime during their promotion.
Despite there’s a mix of different genre in this mini album I think it’s a good thing. It shows what f(x) is capable of from the hardcore edgy style NU ABO to the cutesy style like Ice Cream and ME + U.
I definitely can’t wait for their live performances, these girls will rock the stage like usual.
