PSY – Gentleman Review
Every ‘Gentleman’ by Psy review expectedly describes the song as a tall order after the massive and phenomenal success of ‘Gangnam Style.’ Anyone could agree that this track is not supposed to be as huge as its predecessor.
Understandably, it is simply difficult, even impossible, to equal the height of the first big hit. But many people assert that this new song actually sounds a lot like the first one.
This song may effectively work as a club track. However, in the pop music scene, it may sound a little repetitive. Psy is generally in an awkward position because everyone would logically compare his succeeding songs with his biggest hit, which took the world by storm.
The redeeming factor of this one would have to be the lyrics. Obviously, the track tries to toss out some western pop clichés pertaining to se*y girls.
At least, Psy has improved in this department. Many parts of the lyrics are in English, which is quite indicative that the composer intended to market the song to English-speaking countries.
This song may support the argument that most Asian pop songs are just derivatives of western pop. Musically, this song may sound boring, which is understandable.
