Review Summary: meet South Korea’s next pop sensation/s.

The last time I checked, the purpose of listening to pop music (or any music for that matter) is to invoke pleasure. Pleasure is a multi-faceted word, but I think we can all agree that pleasure equates to enjoyment. Now, with that out of the way, let’s consider Everyday, Girl’s Day’s luscious new album. The album art depicts five cute South Korean girls that clearly want you, but we’ve been sold that crap too many times before to ever fall for it again, right? Wrong. As evident by the impact of their live performances, Girl’s Day is as addictive as the taste of boogers. Is it our fault that we’ve been duped again? Of course it is, but it’s more about the album and the fact that it’s amazingly enjoyable. What kind of man doesn’t enjoy watching five cute girls (of age) dancing and singing in super short skirts? The answer: no man. Let’s continue.

I’ve tried hard to be supposedly reasonable by not liking this, but with every listen, I only find Everyday more compelling. In fact, I would go so far as to say that in terms of pop music, this is genius. Everyday has a strong electronic vibe with notable influences from 8bit, electro, and house music. It’s a fluffy, sugary treat that’s easy to chew, tastes great, and is best when accompanied by cutesy Koreans. Their performance as a group is both endearing and chaotic, with rapid singing, as the girls constantly switch vocal duties in an endless circle. Every girl gets a turn, and every girl is highlighted whether on stage or in the album, leaving the audience in a dumbfounded, tantalized stupor. It is of my opinion that if this type of music was popular in all countries, the world would be a happier place.

Are Girl’s Day changing the face of pop music as we know it? Not really, they’re just doing it 10,000 times better than most pop groups out there, which makes their music rather unique. America could learn a lesson from these girls, or at least they would if they stopped obsessing about the next big pop star, which they have always done. Girl’s Day makes Lady Gaga look like a penniless prostitute in comparison to their class act, and that isn’t even a stretch to say. Forget what you thought you knew about pop music, Girl’s Day is here to shatter expectations.

Suppose I've got time to ruin my expectations and listen to this... ^_^

Edit: Nope this isn't for me, but it'd be great lighthearted anime music.

by the way, great great review. south korea has pop down to a fucking science, its actually a little creepy. also the reason why their music is leagues beyond most pop is because most of these girl groups have been singing and taking private classes and etc. since they were 7. in Korea, if you are good at something at a young age, you'll be doing it forever until you've perfected it. kids don't usually study tae kwon do and then switch to soccer in middle school. skills exploration is not particularly encouraged
