Trax is back! I can't remember the last time I heard the name Trax within k-pop. I don't know if they are officially back but they are doing an SM Station track. I think the last time I heard about Trax was when I was listening to BoA and g.o.d and Fly to the Sky and old Epik High. DBSK when they had all five members. Today they made a comeback with their song “Road” to start out the year of SM Station songs. I hope it's good. I can only recall listening to a couple Trax songs back in the day. This must be the year of 1st Generation returns.
The music video followed the story of an older man and a young boy. The man wanders around searching for a door to which he is greeted by a bald man. He enters the door and out into the woods where there is a guitar waiting for him. The man plays the guitar (except he didn't) and imagines a life of fame. He wakes from his fantasy standing in a mall kiosk with a guitar and the guitar salesman. He buys the guitar and heads home. The little boy is sitting at home coloring all of this stuff that happens to the man and awaits the return of his father who comes in the door and shows off his newly purchased guitar.
The song was calm and relaxing. It was more a ballad definitely but it was very good. It's probably not something I'd listen to all the time but it was a good song nonetheless. When I said the man didn't play the guitar, what I meant was that in his fantasy he was playing the guitar to this song and playing it in front of a lot of people however his left hand (the hand that plays the frets) wasn't moving and barely gripped the fretboard. Sorry, I'm a guitarist, that's why this bugged me.
I hope you enjoyed my review of “Road” by Trax. I look forward to hopefully seeing more of these guys in the future. It's kind of strange. I feel like I'm back in like 2004 with all these old k-pop groups coming back. We just need BoA to top the Korean and Japanese charts now and then it will feel like 2004. Thank you for the support and don't forget to like, comment, and share this post on social media. I'll see ya in the next one.
