Wow this is the last album from Hwayobi that I haven’t reviewed yet! I do know that before this album was recorded, Hwayobi had surgery done for a cyst, but obviously bounced back to complete this album.
ë¹„ìƒ (Intro) starts off the album with a violin playing a sweet melody that lasts a little more than a minute. Continuing in that romantic sound,ì‚¬ëž‘í•´.. follows; I Love You is a ballad with lyrics that really touch our heart.The lead single, ë‚¨ìžëŠ” ëª¨ë¥¸ë‹¤(Men Don’t Know) displays Hwayobi’s vocal range with heart piercing lyrics and also features violins that add a sweet sound to the song.
ë”œë ˆë§ˆ brings in more of the R&B sound Hwayobi’s known for. The song is nice; nothing really stands out but it’s a good song to just bounce your head to.Â ì°¸ ë°”ë³´ ê°™ì£ andÂ í•œ ê±¸ìŒë„Â Â are ballads featuring violins that add that sweeping sound and really filled with tons of emotion.
Fly Away has some European flare with the use ofÂ accordionÂ in the intro; it’s very reminicent of Please Call Me from her 5th album.ê³ ë§ˆì› ì–´ìš” is another ballad that is very sad sounding, Hwayobi’s tone is really sad, but after an entire album filled with ballads I couldv’e done without it.íë¥´ê³ ë©ˆì¶”ë‹¤ (Feat. Untouchable) is slightly upbeat and Untouchable’s rap adds a little something special to the song. The song is nice , but not something that I would listen to if it came up on shuffle.
Long Kiss Good Night (Feat. ìˆ˜í˜¸) is a fun, dance track that really sticks to a disco sound. Suho’s deep tone compliment’s Hwayobi’s well and makes this song so much better for me.The album ends with two ballads:ìžŠê³ ì‹¶ì€ ê²ƒ and Â ê±°ì§“ë§ í•˜ê¸° ì‹«ì–´ìš”; both sound amazing but I feel like she could’ve ended with something more lighthearted.
This album was very underwhelming but I totally understand why she stuck to singing ballads for the last album before she got surgery. This album didn’t really do anything outstanding for me, sure there were a few decent songs but nothing to really catch my attention. 3/5
