I'm back! :D
And with two recommended releases.

Title: Volume 1 - 일요일들
Artist: Belle Epoque
Language: Korean
Release Date: 6/17/08
Genre: Indie

1. 뷰파인더 세상
2. 5월의 후유증
3. 크림샤워
4. 별의 속삭임
5. Vacation
6. 금단 (禁斷)
7. Cafe Siesta featuring E.P Ho
8. 아직은
9. 나와 같은 너
10. December (Album Ver.)
11. 달에 숨다
12. 4월 아침
13. 계절의 끝

I've been enjoying this album lately. It's the kind of music that you listen to while you're just relaxing. It's really easy to listen to, and just calms you down. I love the vocalist's voice. It reminds me a bit of Jisun's (from Loveholic); soft, comforting, and really really pretty.
The band's new, but I think they're very good. I'll keep and eye out for future releases. :)


Title: 1st Single - 이노래
Artist: 2AM
Language: Korean
Release Date: 7/11/08
Genre: Pop, Ballad

o1. 이노래
o2. 아니라기에
o3. 어떡하죠
o4. 이노래
o5. 아니라기에

JYP's new male group, 2AM, certainly surprised me. I wasn't expecting all that much, but they really impressed me. They're voices are strong and soulful, and even though the songs aren't all that complex arrangement-wise, this album is a very good debut. I wish 2AM great success in the future. :)

I'm sorry for not updating more frequently. Recently, I've been finding it hard to find time to upload music.
So I decided to go on a hiatus. I don't know when I'll be back, but I'll try to make it soon. :)

Title: Volume 2 - The Secret
Artist: Kim Dong  Wan

Language: Korean
Release Date:
May 13, 2008
Genre: Pop / Ballad

Kim Dong Wan!
Recommended, right off the bat. :D
I LOVE Kim Dong Wan. His first album was awesome, and his sophomore album is too.
My brain isn't working at the moment, so here is what YesAsia says:

" No need to take out your handkerchief because Kim Dong Wan isn't about to sign off yet. With time ticking down before his mandatory military service, Kim dishes out his sophomore solo act The Secret, doubling the pleasure for all his fans who have recently celebrated Shinhwa's 10th anniversary. Keeping in tune with the recent electronica trend, The Secret's titular track Bi mil ("Secret" - Track 2) rolls out some heavy edgy sounds along with a sexy narration by Tiffany of Girls' Generation. Shinhwa leader Eric shows full support through his own musical contribution in Honey (Track 4) and gospel group Heritage bares their soul in Whe geur ae (Track 3), a cover of Kim Hyun Chul's 1995 smash. Another song to watch out for is You Don't Know Me, a duet with Jade Valerie of Sweetbox which is quickly gaining popularity in the music charts. Other noteworthy participants include Handkerchief's composer Yoon Myung Seon who lathers on his silky smooth touches in Psy kiss (Track 7) and Kim Jae Seok of Wanted who demonstrates his composing skills in Ddeo na do dweh (Track 8). "


Title: Volume 5 - Pieces, Part One
Artist: Epik High

Language: Korean (& some English)
Release Date: April 17th, 2008
Genre: Hip-Hop

01 Be
02 Breakdown
03 서울, 1:13 AM (Short Piece)
04 One (Feat. 지선 Jisun)

05 연필깎이 (Feat. KEBEE)

06 Girl (Feat. 진보 Jinbo)
07 Slave (Short Piece)
08 The Future (Feat. Yankie)

09 20 Fingers (Short Piece) (Feat. DJ Friz)

13 Icarus Walks (Short Piece)
14 낙화 (落花)
15 우산 (Feat. 윤하 Younha)

16 당신의 조각들 (Feat. 지선 Jisun)
17 B-Side 01 : Breakdown (Supreme mix)
18 B-Side 02 : One (Planet Shiver Remix)

Epik High's 5th album is here! :D This trio never seems to let me down. They keep putting out awesome music, and this is no exception. I thought nothing could even come close to their last album, Remapping The Human Soul, but I was wrong. Amazing stuff, as usual. :)
My favorite tracks on here have to be One, Ignition, The Future, and
우산. Definitely highly recommended.

Title: Back
Artist: A'ST1

Language: Korean
Release Date: April 17th, 2008
Genre: Pop,

01 Back
02 Show

03 Funky N Roll Tonight
04 You

05 내가 바보였어

Meet A'ST1 (don't ask me how to pronounce it. I've heard both A Style and A Star One), the new multi-national boy-band from DSP Entertainment, the same label that has brought you SS501, FinKL, KARA, and Sunha. If you're a Super Junior fan, you've most likely seen/heard of them before. Maybe this will jog your memory? Anyway, don't let the whole promotion thing turn you off; give these boys a chance! You most likely won't be disappointed~ ;D All of them are really talented (and not to mention, pretty darn good-looking.) and this single is pretty impressive.

Title: Volume 2- Infinity
Artist: 8Eight

Language: Korean
Release Date: March 18, 2008
Genre: Hip-Hop, R&B

01. Let Me Go (Feat. 조PD)
02. I Love You
03. Sometin' Sometin'
04. One Love
05. 물어 봅니다
06. In The Morning
07. 왔어 그녀
08. Me 주희 (Feat. Pdogg)
09. 또 한걸음
10. 옷깃을 잡고서 (Feat. 민혜)

8Eight is back with their second album~ 8D
I was highly impressed by their first album, so I had to check out this one when I found out about it. And I was certainly impressed, yet again. This group has so much talent- "The Korean Black Eyed Peas"- and is just akdfnhgskl; awesome. I love every single song on here. I believe it has more diversity than their debut album, showcasing more hip-hop and jazz tunes, while still sticking to the R&B style that I expected.

So ignore the cover (anybody else not digging their new style?) and check it out, 'cause you definitely don't want to miss out on this. 8D

Please comment if you download. Thank you~

05. Kissしたまま、さよなら

Um, so yeah, I'm sure you all have by now (I men, come on, it's DBSK. What Asian music rotation doesn't upload their releases. x__x;)
I actually like this album better than Five in Black. I like the fact that this album has more of a variety to it. The boys stepped out of their "comfort zone" and experimented with different genres.
As you can tell, I'm biased and gave Lovin' You, Forever Love, and Love in The Ice more hearts. Uh... but that doesn't mean I don't like the other songs too. 8D;
I really like DARKNESS EYES (god, how I love this song. ♥)- the beat is awesome. It's my favorite new song. :D TRICK and CLAP! (I find that title so cute. XD) are okay, too.

Overall, the tracks with s by them are recommended. :)

15 January 2008 @ 01:09 pm

Title: Purple Line
東方神起(Tohoshinki) / 동방신기 (Dong Bang Shin Ki)
Language: Japanese
Release Date: January 16th, 2008
Genre: Pop, R&B, Remix


01 Purple Line ♥
02 DEAD END -STY Gin n' Tonic mix-

03 ZION - Zero G Remix -

04 Purple Line (Less Vocal)
05 DEAD END -STY Gin n' Tonic mix- (Less Vocal)

New single from Tohoshinki! The title song (Purple Line), is more... American-ish? It has sort of an American Hip-hop feel to it. Nevertheless, it's still a totally hot and addicting song. :)
DEAD END -STY Gin n' Tonic mix- is better than I expected, but I still don't like it as much as the original.

Title: 2집 - 떠나라 미스김 (Volume 2- Leave Ms. Kim)
Artist: Brown Eyed Girls
Language: Korean
Release Date: September 6th, 2007
Genre: Pop, R&B

01. 남자는 없다 (Feat.영지 Young Ji from Bubble Sisters)
02. 내가 웃고 있어요(가인 Ga In)
03. 떠나라 미스김
04. 술래
05. 너에게 속았다
06. 하필이면
07. 오아시스 (Feat.이재훈 Lee Jae Hoon)

10. 최면
11. 내꺼야
12. How Could I Love You
13. 내가 웃고 있어요 (Inst.)
14. 떠나라 미스김 (Inst.)

BEG is quite possibly my favorite Korean girl group. They have a unique sound and absolutely beautiful voices that harmonize wonderfully. And I love Miryo's raps, too.
Um, I honestly love every single song on here (some more than others, but.), so I can't really pick my favorite one. But I really, really like Triangle, 술래, 하필이면, 내꺼야, and How Could I Love You . *___*;
By the way, this album features a couple of artists: Young Ji from Bubble Sisters(Track 1) and Lee Jae Hoon (Track 7).

This is highly recommended. This album is one of my favorite albums of 2007. :)

Title: 雙面飛輪海 (Two-Sided Fahrenheit)
Artist: 飛輪海 (Fahrenheit)
Language: Mandarin Chinese
Release Date: January 4th, 2008
Genre: Pop
01. 新窩 (feat.S.H.E)
02. 為你存在
03. 出神入化
04. 不會愛
05. Ti Amo - Aaron Yan & Liu Li Yang
06. 愛的王道
07. 心理有數
08. 明日香
09. 至少還有我
10. 一萬個快樂
11 小小大人物
12 新窩 (Fahrenheit Version)
13 超喜歡你

I'll admit it- I'm a Fahrenheit fan. They aren't the best boy band in the world (I've definitely heard of better singers), but that doesn't take away from the fact that their a good group. Their second album,- the first being their self-titled debut album Fahrenheit- Two-Sided Fahrenheit, impressed me more than their first one. I don't know if it's just that I haven't listened to their first album in so long, or if this album is just better. XD;
My favorite song on here is 新窩, hands down. This song is the adorable collaboration between Fahrenheit and S.H.E, and I love it when the two groups collaborate. ♥ Other songs that I found worth listening to were: TiAmo (Aaron Yan & Liu Li Yang duet), 心裏有數, 一萬個快樂 and 小小大人物 .

Title: premium live!
Artist: 東方神起(Tohoshinki) /
동방신기 (Dong Bang Shin Ki)
Language: Japanese (& some English)
Release Date:
October 29, 2007
Genre: Pop, Pop-rock, Ballad, R&B

01. MAZE (Hero JaeJoong) ♥♥♥
02. Crazy Life (Uknow Yunho)  ♥
03. Rainy Night (Xiah Junsu) 
04. WILD SOUL (Max Changmin)  ♥
04. My Girlfriend (Micky Yoochun) ♥

Omg, I finally found it! :D (2 or so months after it was released, but...)
I've been looking for this ever since it was released. And I have my hands on it at last~
As you can probably see, I like Hero's and Xiah's solos most. Even though all of the songs are awesome, those two captured me the most. I found MAZE super addictive. *o* And Rainy Night is just beautiful. It reminds me why Junsu is my favorite~  Haha.
Yunho's solo, Crazy Life is real sexy, yo. I like it very much. :)
WILD SOUL, Changmin's solo, is really rock-driven. I like it when he screams. XD My Girlfriend is probably my favorite song after MAZE and Rainy Night. Even though i can't understand Chun's English... his voice is still amazing. :D

Overall... this mini-album is definitely recommended, and a total must if you're a DBSK fan.
