Well, ok. Nine singers, including Eunhyuk. Improvement, I guess? Still short – Don’t Don felt like it did a decent job of trying to include everyone, and I know Kibum and Heechul were AWOL for most of this but still, there were technically 13 dudes here. Eunhyuk’s singing, though – we haven’t had a single rap yet and we’re four songs in.
Following alongside “Keep In Touch” (yeah that’s me, with the Super Junior deep cuts), here’s another side of the same dude. The protagonist in “Keep In Touch” had broken up with his girlfriend and was all “I’MA JUST WAIT YOU’LL WANT ME BACK SOMEDAY.” “Angela” is Friendzone: The Song. This protagonist says she is cold-hearted but “too beautiful to erase” (thanks Kyuhyun) and so he’ll just stay by her side as her friend, clinging to the tiny scraps of affection she gives him. This iteration of SJ needs a kick in the nutsack.
In terms of writing, it’s… fine? It’s not horrible, there’s nothing jumping out at me as “bad chord progression” or “awkward melody.” But there’s nothing too exciting either. Yesung gets to be the main adlibber again. Sungmin’s English is better than Donghae’s, but Sungmin does less of it (?? why).
And erm, I guess it’s not That One Song even though it easily could have been? I dunno. Aside from bitching about lyrics there is really not a lot to talk about here. I am beginning to wonder if I scored the Twins songs too high, because this is better than pretty much anything on Twins but I feel like giving it a 5.
