It is the kind of dance songs that you would like to play in a party or will be there to make your mood lift up. The musical instruments are widely used in all the songs and have served as a pillar for the whole album.
The chorus in the Korean song is great and repeated sound of the whistles makes it glossier. The voices of both the vocals are evenly matched and well balanced with the melodies. The music being used is great as well.
The guys know where they needed low music and at what point they needed an upbeat. The hard work they boys have put in the album along with the knowledge of the music in trend now a day is the shot that the band has played in this album, while the shot has gotten to the right target.
