The audio of the song was terrible. The whole production was off. First of all, the songwriting was really poorly done because it sounded like a typical ballad for a girl group. Nothing really stood out. The verse and chorus instrumentation didn’t change at all, so it didn’t feel like it was going anywhere. It would have been nice to see some progression. The next point is the vocal to backing track ratio. What the producer did, was bring the vocals way up front which is what you want in a Pop song. However, in doing this, he made the vocals peak at certain points which means he didn’t master the final version of the song. Also, the backing track was buried. It almost disappeared at times because of how prominent the vocals were. They were good singers, but I wanted to hear a track not an A Capella.
The song was beautiful, as all Apink songs are, but this song had a tinge of hopefulness, sadness, memories, nostalgia, and regret all twined into one beautiful masterpiece. Congratulations, Apink on seven years. Eunji, Chorong, Hayoung, Bomi, Naeun, and Namjoo. You are all beautiful and whatever the future holds for you lovely ladies, your Pink Pandas will forever support you.
Thank you all for your support towards me, but let’s not forget about the artists that work day in and day out to bring you music, entertainment, and so much more. Let’s remember the successes and failures of Kpop because each person who goes through the Trainee process deserves success and deserves recognition. Thank you and I’ll see you in my next review.
