Review [Minialbum] “Beautiful” by f(x)’s [Amber]

I’m back! And as always I’m drowning in so many awesome songs, I hardly know where to start. So today I brought along a review of my favourite Korean female singer~

Besides 2NE1 the Korean female idol section is mostly just too fluffy and girly for my taste. You agree with me? Well, then Amber might be your hero. Or your lama, seeing as that’s her nickname.
Let’s take a look at the first solo album of f(x)’s rapper and SM’s representative tomboy – Amber!

Amber - Beautiful - Cover

Artist: Amber
Title: Beautiful

Tracklist:
01. Beautiful  – 6.5/10

[K-Pop] Top 20 Ranking 2014

…And here it goes again, like last year: My personal ranking of songs that came out in 2014 and impressed me in any way to a point that I’m still listening to them today.
I’ll try not to be too biased towards songs that came out recently, but also consider songs from this years’ beginning. 2014 has been a year full of too many good songs for me, so it was really hard to draw my conclusion. Let’s see…~

20. “Snake” – A-Jax


While A-Jax ranked pretty high last year, I barely heard anything from them this year. Still,  this song managed to sneak inside my head and made itself quite comfortable there. While the video is kinda cute at best, but rather clisheé overall, the song itself is somehow catchy and kept me in a good mood. It’s an easy-going song, but somehow the chorus melody just goes well with me~ I hope they’ll be more successful this year!

There are sooo many awesome songs, I don’t even know which one to recommend first. So let’s get started with something that made me laugh so hard…:

[Recommendation] Mini-Mixtape from Andy A47

Our dear Underdogg Andy A47 is back with two really nice songs~
Since this cute little mixtape only includes two songs I don’t think a review is neccessary. I’ll just recommend it to you straight away!

Andy A47 - Underdogg
Album: – Mixtape –
Artist: Andy A47
Year: 2014
Language: Chinese/English
Tracklist:
    01. M.I.C (是中华圈的炫耀) (feat. Cross Gene’s Casper)
              02. MA SEOUL CITY

I already wrote about Andy once, but since I like him so much, I’ll gladly repeat myself for those who haven’t heard of him yet:
Maybe you’ve stumbled across the Korean band Topp Dogg? With the intimidating number of 13 members? Well, in a way there are even more members – they’re called “Underdogg” and form a subunit that joins Topp Dogg once in a while and on certain occasions. And in there, between Jiwon and Hyuntae, we have Andy.
So he’s a sort-of Trainee of Stardom who maybe will or won’t join Topp Dogg? Not quite.

[Random Song] “Disappear” from [The Royal Pirates]

Even though I had something else in mind, I’m gonna squeeze this song in between for now – since I’ve been in a particularly bad mood and this song came in perfectly.
Again, this is a song which is 100% in English and therefore recommendable for anyone… Who likes some rock~!
Additionally this band is still somewhat underrated and my insider-tip ;D

[Random Song] “YOUR STEP” from [Yamashita Tomohisa]

Again I’m back with a Japanese… No, not a song, but an artist~! The song is 100% English, though(So it’s even potentially something for the K-Pop fans as well ;)
This is officially the first song of Yama-P that I really fell in love with. Let me introduce to you:

[5 Songs] that are meaningfully deep

*sing* Deeper than the sea~
…Yeah, right. Maybe I’m listening to Exo too much.

-This time I’m not gonna split into Korean/Japanese, but rather go for 2 Korean, 2 Japanese and 1 Chinese song-

Some people like to let go while listening to music, to forget all the problems in the world.
And I won’t deny that’s probably the intention of some artists, as well. But there are certain artists to choose otherwise: To point out problems they see or to name their innermost fears and troubles as a first step to progress them and to encourage other people to follow them in doing this. I’ve always had the habit to fall for this type of songs. Hard. They haunt me, wrap me up and don’t let me go… Does this even make sense?

I’m gonna introduce you to some songs that fall under my category of truly meaningful songs – Let’s go tackle some issues, then?

The reason for not focusing on any language is that those songs simply are the strongest ones and I wanted to keep this list on a level as high as possible. Also people shouldn’t cling to one language only~
I can still make a second list if I come upon more songs like this :)

1. BADMAN from B.A.P (Korean)


A predictable entry in this list, huh?
People who’re into K-Pop might know that B.A.P’s leader Yongguk is notoriously un-idol-like. Not overly pretty, not overly cute, just not overly attention-seeking(No offense to idols doing their job). He just seems believably human and real and has an honest soft spot for all kind of charity on top of that. Though still young he already has the feeling of a true artist sticking to him, for obvious reasons. Rather than taking the safe route he produces songs and writes lyrics which more often than not tackle various problems.

And oh boy, BADMAN is a strong song. In means of the costumes, the as always Blockbuster-like video but mostly in terms of lyrics.
