Today I am attempting at playing some major catch up. I've been so far behind on music videos that I have a list of videos I need to review. I'm sure I've missed some but there are 5 that I'm going to review for today in today's Quick Reviews.
First up, we have Zico with two new tracks. “Anti” featuring G.Soul and “Artist”. Zico, for those of you who don't know, is a rapper from Block B. He is well known for releases a ton of solo stuff as well as collaborating with various artists. To start this review session, we'll check out “Anti” first and then jump into “Artist” immediately after.
Another music video that went right over my head. “Anti” was a music video that seemed to be focusing on the bad things that happen in life. I think at one point in the video, Zico shot himself. Let's just say this video was strange but intriguing. The song was awesome! I love Zico's rap because he utilizes such creative flow style. I can't wait to listen to “Artist”.
“Artist” picks up right where “Anti” left off; kind of. The music video zooms out from a television set sitting on the ground but besides that I can't find any connection between the two videos. I will say I'm glad I watched them in this order. As for the song, it was a completely different mood than “Anti”. I will say I probably liked “Anti” a little better because his raps where incredible in “Anti”, not that they weren't amazing in “Artist”.
“Why, You?” by Park Boram was a unique video. The usage of sounds and images throughout the video were incredible and slightly disgusting at the same time. Amplifying sounds like a razor against skin or the sound of chewing a fruit is a beautiful way to make a video but it also can be disgusting for some people too. They also used a lot of visual effects on the video to give it a little pop. The song was good and honestly, she reminds me of IU in the way she sings. They both have powerful but innocent sounding voices.
The only 13 member group that I like is back. WJSN comes back with “Kiss Me”, a video about girls wanting guys, again. It's similar to several different variations of the style including “Heart Attack” by AOA, “Muah!” by April and several others. I would say it's unique but it's not. The song was more cutesy bubblegum pop than WJSN's previous comebacks and I don't know how I feel about that because I was enjoying the fantastical side they were venturing towards. Hopefully this is just something for summer and not a permanent alteration of style.
I'm not going to lie, I was a bit disappointed with the music video for “Love” by Psy. Not that the girls dancing were bad, but because I wanted to see Taeyang on screen again. The music video was creative though. Rather than just having these girls dance in front of a white backdrop, the words “what we need is love” appeared in several different languages as if signifying the connection that love provides the entire world. Love is a language every human being can understand regardless of belief, race, or whatever else tends to hinder the progression of the human race. Good message. I love the song especially because Taeyang is singing on it.

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.
