I was pretty excited for SISTAR's release especially because their 2012-early 2013 track record has been pretty solid (at least for me). I figured STARSHIP knew there was quite a bit riding on this comeback and the teasers were pretty eye-catching. But once I heard the song, I can't help but think I am a little disappointed.

For one, I like that they're doing something new. A new sound means they're breaking away from what they've done in the past both musically and conceptually. This comeback is flashy, dazzling, and a bit sophisticated. I also appreciate that the girls all look gorgeous, especially Dasom. Can we like get a cheer for Dasom? She's super pretty.

Secondly, the line distribution was the most balanced it's ever been. Are people really accusing Soyu of stealing parts, now? I mean come on, the girl can sing. And it was nice to see the a large chunk of the burden lifted off of Hyorin.

The song itself isn't as appealing as I thought. There is no real hook in my opinion. I can't find a memorable part that I want to sing to myself, especially since the main chorus is a little too bland. I'm curious how this will fare on digital charts, however. SISTAR is #2 on Instiz right now and I think they can only go higher. Also, I'm hoping physical sales are a bit higher than they had in the past, because they are a presence now and I hope this is reflected in their fan base.

(I thought Brave Brothers gave their best songs to SISTAR, too. If this is the best they did out of their recent productions then STARSHIP needs new partners).

Aaaanyway, about After School:



I'm super excited. I'm in love with the teaser even though, sure, the MV set looks a bit basic. I mean, come on. Pledis isn't all that rich anyway, so I'm sure they did as best as they could with their budget. But I'm totally digging the sound and the pole-dancing concept. After School always impresses with the new skills they learn and I can't wait to see them do this on stage. Hopefully this also boosts their popularity and I'm sure the teaser had people notice them more. What girl group really goes out of their way to learn new art forms? This should bring some good attention.

What are your thoughts about both groups?

omg
where I have been

I didn't really like Sistar's song. Basically exited out of the tab a minute into it. I'll listen to it again maybe in a few days.

ps: oh look who's back

Sistar's new song is addicting. Better than Alone imo.

I loved SISTAR's new song. I liked how upbeat it was and different it was from other kpop songs. I'm glad they gave Soyu and Dasom much more spotlight than usual and how it wasn't SISTAR19 central. The MV was superb imo. But there could've been more lyrics instead of just "give it to me" most of the time. But I'm also a sucker for a piano beat which helps me like the song more.

I'm so anticipated for After School's comeback. I've never been a huge fan of them, but the pole dancing looks like its going to be awesome and the song sounds great too.
