Well, it’s finally here! For those who are awake at 7PM KST, you can watch LOEN/Melon‘s Live Stream of Junsu‘s Showcase here. As for my thoughts on the album, you have to wait until I write the review. (
Right now, I’ll just tell you that I’m rather impressed, though not floored. ‘X’ that, I just might call this album “quasi-incredible,” minus a song or two.— Maybe I’m just freaking out over the fact that this didn’t crash and burn like Tarantallegra) In the meantime, here’s the full album to listen to yourself, and the music video for “Incredible”:
“Incredible (feat. Quincy Brown)”
I’m not a huge fan of “Incredible” when it comes down to it, but I do love the addictive and dancable quality to it. Maybe it’s just that I don’t like the rap nor do I like the music video’s haphazardness.
I don’t know if it’s only me, but the MV feels really cheap. Yeah, there’s lots of half-naked western people dancing around which probably isn’t cheap—although I don’t listen to Junsu to see half-naked people. Junsu’s great at being sultry, but he usually is able to inject a sort of classy factor into the song. This time, he just let the American influences run all over the song and MV, which kind of removes the “Junsu-ness” from everything. Let me be clear, the dude sounds incredible as usual; I’m just upset that the song does no justice to his voice. Honestly though, when will he release another “Intoxication“? That was both great for his voice and modern/sensual.
What do you all think of the album? Let me know in the comments!
