Wow, my taste in music really does suck
Super Junior – “미인아 (Bonamana”)
What is this?! WHAT IS THIS?!?!
Oh, yes, after two weeks and 32 plays of this song…I have learned to *gulp* like it. Ladies and gents, this is my Sucky-Music-Tolerance-ism at its best. But I do have my reasons for not completely hating myself for letting this one slide.
1) Harmonic complexities in the chorus. Yes, they are there. I didn’t notice them until about the 16th play or so, but after that, everything about my perception on this song changed.
2) Ryeowook and Kyuhyun’s bridge around 2:50. I am starting to appreciate Ryeowook’s voice. WHAT IS HAPPENING.
3) Actually, Kyuhyun in general. You can hear him everywhere here; it’s ridonkulous. I’ve been obsessed with this kid for the longest time, but he’s finally getting the limelight he’s deserved after spending four years condemned to Ballad Land–which is really not a good place to be if you’re a Suju member.
And don’t even let me get started on Kyuhyun and live performances. *drool* Heck, I’m even starting to like the MV because of Kyuhyun. I mean–
I still need to review the rest of the album before making any more drastic judgment calls. “Boom Boom” isn’t sounding too terrible, and “나란 사람” is not bad as far as most Suju ballads go. Still can’t figure out exactly what their concept is supposed to be. It’s been, like, a month since photos came out and I’m still stumped. Not a good sign.
