[Review] Son Dam Bi – Type B Album
I know I promised this review AGES AGO.
But what are you going to do, school had me bent backwards.
This is Dam Bi’s first full length album after three mini albums.
Let’s just get started.
1. 토요일밤에 (On A Saturday Night)
This is her latest single from the album. And while the intro is really nice… I have to say that she could’ve had a stronger comeback song. This song just screams “blah” to me. It doesn’t really have anything special and I did not like it even after many listens *shocked* Thumbs down B.
2. No Sympathy
This is a different version from the one on her 2nd Mini Album. This sounds like a remix, and I have to say while I loved the 2nd MA version, this one…. is not going to get many listens from me. I don’t like the feel of the new song, I don’t know, I liked it slower with fewer beats.
3. 두번째라도 (Even if it’s the second time)
This is my favourite song on the album. I think this may be the only song I’d listen to over again and again.
4. 느리게잊기 (Slowly Forgetting)
As much as I love Dam Bi, she isn’t someone I’d associate with ballads because her voice simply isn’t strong enough to evoke the emotions necessary for a ballad. Sorry, just my opinion.
5. Bad Boy (Remix)
Filler. But a great remix. This was on her Remixes Mini Album. Along with the following track.
6. 미쳤어 (Remix)
Filler. AND *yawn* The original version is the best. Just goes to show you shouldn’t mess with a great thing.
7. 그만하자 (Let’s Stop)
Sorry, don’t like this track either ><”
8. 투명인간 (Invisible Person)
This is unfortunate, I didn’t like this song on her 2nd Mini Album, and I’m sad to say that nothing’s changed.
9. Twice Too Many Time
This song is completely in English. And it’s not a bad song, even though you do hear an accent. People are speculating about a possible American debut. To which I’m screaming: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO*breathes*OOOOOOOOOOOO.
This is going to be a mini rant, but I have to get it out of my system.
I’m sick of all these successful Kpop acts trying to debut in the States. I’ll say it here right now.
You are not going to succeed unless you have full mastery of the language and culture.
That is the first and most basic step and without it, you aren’t going to go anywhere.
10. 토요일밤에 (Instrumental)
I sound really harsh in this review. But in a “full-length” album with five filler tracks, the other 50% better be stellar. Unfortunately this album did not deliver and I’m very disappointed because I’m a big fan of SDB, =(
Better luck next time B.
