So Ailee is back with her mini album ‘A’s Doll House’, which is available on iTunes, and it is something else!
U & I is a great opener for the mini album. This track is funky with lots of R&B/Soul influence. I’m really loving the horns in this song; it definitely gives this song a jazzy feel.No No No is a pop synth track that is perfect for the summer.
Rainy Day was an attempt at a sort of pop/rock ballad. I want to like this song, but the overall composition of the song is weird. This track feel like she’s yelling for the majority of the song and she does have a set of pipes on her, but this isn’t pleasant to listen to. If her singing wasn’t so scream-y then maybe I would like this track.
이런 법이 어딨어 really reminds me of old Hwayobi, that sort of classic R&B sound. I much prefer this more calmer sounding Ailee. This song is very simple in composition, just a bit of layering of her voice and guitar and some light percussion and piano; that’s where she shines. 열애설 is ok; JeA of Brown Eyed Girls’ helped on the music for this song and the music sounds nice and I can definitely hear her singing a song like this. This wasn’t a very strong track and honestly a little more pizzaz, maybe a featured singer or rapper would’ve made me appreciate this song. I’ll Be Okay is a cute end to the album. This pop synth track is light and another “I don’t need a man” summer anthem.
This mini album from Ailee wasn’t what I was expecting, but it’s not that bad. I think she was trying to show off her voice, which is beautiful, and also have more pop tracks that fit with the mood of summer. I think some of that logic got lost in a few tracks. Ailee’s singing also gets a 10/10, but this mini gets a 3/5!
Since the release of their single ‘Cry’, last year,I’ve had my eye on MBLAQ because they just keep getting better and better both music wise and image wise. They know what works with their voices and can now start playing around with different sounds, like they did with this mini album. Continue reading MBLAQ Mona Lisa

Well I was obsessed with Supa Luv for like a few months and I was excited to see what their new sound would be for their comeback. Although one of the teaser pictures was quite shocking, I’m glad they aren’t running around in boxers and heels. Continue reading Teen Top ROMAN
