I usually don’t like John Park all that much. But this time, U grew on me. It got this little rock twist that I quite like and the voice of John Park goes with the song nicely. I’m sure it still won’t be for everyone, but it’s maybe a bit more upbeat and even a bit more mainstream than what we’re used to with him.
So T-ARA came back… I don’t hate Sugar Free that much, but I cannot say I’m really totally happy with it. I’m super hard on T-ARA I know. But that’s because I love them so much that when they come with a song that isn’t up to the standard I’m used too, I’m really terribly disappointed. I enjoy Sugar Free now and then, but I know I’ll get tired of it pretty fast. I just hope they get out of their EDM phase and come back to their more bubbly upbeat disco/dance phase.
Now, about Nasty Nasty : I really loved the song a lot. I listened to it non stop for a few days. Then, while I was walking down the street one day, I thought about the song and it transformed naturally into Troublemaker. I thought “ok, I guess this MV and the one for Now are quite similar, but still, why?”. And I realised that some of the arrangement for part of Troublemaker and Knock are really similar to one another. So that’s that. I don’t know if my love for the song will last long though because there’s also part of the song I don’t care much for.
