So here I am again, doing another album review, or mini album if you will. I’m excited about this one because I’ve really gotten into Kara a lot lately. And if you’ve been following k-pop like most of you do, you know that Hara released a mini album entitled Alohara. It contains the song “Choco Chip Cookies” which has become quite popular on YouTube and various other social media sites. So I’m going to be reviewing this album. So let’s get started.
The first song is called “Eoddae” or (a rough google translation) “What Do You Think?” It’s got cool synth effects. It’s got a hard beat. I’m liking this already. The beat is a little dirty which I like. There are so many effects in this song. This is awesome. This song throws it down. She’s rapping, and rocking it. I love the build up to the chorus. And that chorus is just so awesome. She throws it down so hard. So freaking hard.
The next song is the famous “Choco Chip Cookies”. This song is more laid back, but still has some of those effects from the last song. This song is a summer jam type of song. I love her voice in this song. She sings so beautifully. I love the transition between the verse and the pre-chorus. The transitions between the verse and pre-chorus and then the pre-chorus and chorus are awesome. So amazing. If you want to read more about my views on this song, click here.
The next song is “La La La” featuring Me! Just kidding but it’s featuring Matthew. This song already sounds intense. I’m loving this album, it hits really hard. I love it. There are those effects again. The “la la la’s” are so cute but so aggressive at the same time. They really did some experimenting with this album because this doesn’t sound anything like the Kara I’ve experienced thus far.
Next up we have, “Haragu”. Those hits are so hard. This has a rock feeling to it. It’s got background electric guitars going on. I like the minor thing in the chorus too. I like that this song is basically her name. It’s like a self-proclaiming song. I like it a lot.
So there’s one more song, and if this next song is as good as the previous songs I might give this album a 10 out of 10. So let’s check out “Rainy Day”. It’s a little different than the rest of the album. It’s more of a ballad type song. But I like it too. Hara, congratulations on stealing my heart. It’s got a lot going on in the song, like a clean guitar and the beat and synths and more synths. But it’s just awesome.
So I’m quite pleased with this album. I enjoyed every song very much. I’m glad I did this review because I just found my new album I’m going to buy when I get paid next. What did you guys think of her solo debut? Was it everything you expected? Was it more? Or was it just kind of weird to you? Let me know in the comments section. I give this album a 10/10. Thanks for reading again.
