This is not the case for Beast's most recent album. Having been listening to the whole album, I can proudly say that I really enjoy all of the songs in Ordinary, ALL OF THEM. Let's not waste any time and check out my ranking:
1. At That Place
2. Gotta Go To Work
3. Take It
5. Suite Room
6. Oh Honey
Yes, I excluded the Korean version of "One Day" and "How About You?" since both of them are bonus tracks (CD only). And yes, I was surprised myself that "YeY" ended up in the 4th place. It's not because the title track is bad. It's because the B-side tracks are SO GOOD.
I'm gonna let you know my take on each track, but if you look for an explanation from expert perspective, I'm honestly lacking. Okay, here I go.
"At That Place"
"Gotta Go To Work"
I can understand that despite the B-side tracks being more interesting that the title track, this is the perfect dance song for summer. I wasn't used to hear Beast using so many EDMs for their choruses at first, but now this song has grown on me. And it's. Growing. Hard! Now, I'm actually addicted to Yoseob's 'Yey yey yey ye~ah'. Watching the live performance definitely helps. The fanchant will blow your ears. The rap is damn catchy, especially the 'Loveless' part. Junhyung continues to be one of the best rapper in Kpop. But, the best part got to be Gikwang's part...SICKEST PRE-CHORUS EVER!
This song is like a sedative to me. Super calming melodies sung by the sweet voices of Beast members. I will choose to listen to this song at a peaceful evening after a tiring day. The most captivating part for me is the intro where Yoseob does his delicious 'mmmhmm..yeah..' No, I swear I'm not daydreaming about his voice right now!
When I first hear the song, it was rather plain and standard. The tempo is too slow for my liking. On the other note, I like the instruments and the 'Oh, na..na..na..na' by Gikwang. And hillariously, "So Hot" from Good Luck album and this song has so many similarities, since the composer of both songs are the same person. Yes, I'm proud of Gikwang and his new found skill in composing.
Conclusion: I feel like all of the songs are title tracks. There isn't a single song that I don't like. I give Ordinary a 4.5 out of 5. Well done, Beast ♥
