Henry made his debut on Music Bank today with the song “Trap” featuring Taemin and Kyuhyun. He also released his debut solo mini album yesterday, also entitled Trap, which I have embedded below.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hGf3fjh_yIo&list=PLVl2h70p_BRfiwKbEkYFPQlVlMqrdjVFY&index=1]
(BTW, leave a comment if you want me to do a review for the album.)
The debut album is pretty nice, with half the album being composed by Henry’s music production team, Noize Bank.
—However, there is one glaring hole in all of this: where in the world is Henry’s Violin?
The reason I like Henry as much as I do is 90% due to his mad Violin skills. What other pop star plays Vivaldi’s Summer like a pro and break dances at the same time? As a former (average) Violinist myself, watching him play was like the coolest thing ever. Henry oozed charisma in all of his violin performances, and here’s one of them:[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jeds5WkG1OU]
Amazing right? And then watch this:[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=AIgwozTZ1ds#!]
Yeah, it’s nice and all, but I still think the best parts were when he was playing the piano, not actually singing the song…
That said, “Trap” is still a great song, but I just don’t think that Henry quite has the it factor to pull it off as a solo endeavor. I’m curious as to what would happen if he made a remix where he included a violin interlude. Actually, he totally should.
And feature Amber the second time around.
