[Review] B1A4 – “This Time Is Over”

4 Mar

Another week, another personally beloved group comes up with a new release that drags me out of academia hell. Well, this week brings out is my favorite best new artist from last year, B1A4. Their second album was so fun and energetic that regardless of how much they butchered the lyrics, it was a great listen.

Their new song also comes with this fantastic teaser of Baro, back to his black hair (and looking mighty fine). The sound of their new song is definitely surprising because it is nothing like anything they’ve made before.

The song begins with a beautiful melody, far more dramatic than their usual glossy fare accompanied by great pained vocals from both Sandeul and Jinyoung. Suddenly this transitions to an operatic chorus with all the boys create a beautiful harmony. Baro is sensational with his rap delivery but the song indeed goes to Sandeul and Jinyoung who both sound more mature than ever, a sign of great things to come in the album.

Even the lyrics are far more mature and deep than their previous material, rivaling Only Learnt the Bad Things. I love how towards the end, the song dissolves into a cacophony of “oh’s” from the singers.

Let’s just say I have a lot of high expectations for this album and color me intrigued, to say the least.
