If you know me at all, you'll know that it took me a long time to get into boy groups. I'm typically more of a girl group type of guy because I am in fact a guy and prefer to look at pretty girls more than pretty guys. With that being said, I feel like a lot of my reviews lately have been for boy groups. Today is no different. I will review 3 music videos that have come out in the past week only by boy groups. We have Seventeen, Block B, and Monsta X and their respective videos to discuss and dissect.
“Clap” by Seventeen went through the process of making a video. There were a bunch of visual effects used throughout and it gave a cool unique style to it. In the video, there was footage of what happens on the screen of the computer. It shows what sometimes goes on at the producer's desk. It was a unique video and very catchy song. I enjoyed the use of old TV grain at the end of the video to close out.
Rock guitar brought us swiftly into the song. That same rock genre sound remained through the entire song and held up well. I'm a rocker and I love some crunch and grit with my guitars, so this song bode well with me. The vocals were, of course, impressive and the rap was on point. There were some pop aspects strewn throughout the song, but they were mixed well and added to the song rather than taking from it.
“Shall We Dance” by Block B was an interesting music video. It looked like Mexico, but also looked like a Big Bang video. There was a bunch of people with the braided hair and the Cholo look. I don't know what else to say because honestly it was just a video of people looking hard.
As for the song, it had a very old school hip hop vibe, but it was tinged with that Latin feeling. It was an impressive song, especially for Zico, but it didn't quite live up to some of their previous songs. It was good, but not the best from Block B.
Honestly, this music video was the one I was looking forward to reviewing all day. “Dramarama” by Monsta X seems to follow a time traveler and the events around a car wreck. I might have to go back and watch the video again to understand everything that is happening. There is running from what appears to be Time Police and a car wreck that the time traveler tries to stop countless times, but fails every time. The time traveler is caught by the Time Police and is stripped of the watch that helps him shift through time. Then they point a laser gun at him and send him away to a different time without the watch.
Tell me if any of that was correct. I have a feeling I was completely off. The song was a bop as expected from Monsta X. This still isn't my favorite song from them but it's good. I really enjoyed it, but I think I was enthralled in the video more than the music. I love time traveling stories and it seems that no one attempts them anymore.
Well, thank you for supporting me by checking out this Quick Reviews set. I love boy groups now, so please support each artist. Which video was your favorite? Mine was “Dramarama” for the story as well as the song. Be sure to like and share this set of reviews and comment which video was your favorite. Thank you again and I'll see you in my next review.
My Quick Reviews are conglomerates of music video reviews. For instance, if there are several releases in a single day that are all related or somewhat related, I will do a Quick Review segment.
