[Music Review] Park YuChun An Empty Space for You
This is the OST song to the drama and I haven’t been able to watch the drama so I wasn’t able to link the song to the drama. But then again, my review would be fair since no scenes of the drama will come to mind. I guess the feel of the song would be different if I’ve watched the drama and listened to the song then reviewed it.
The song feels light on the first hear. It sounds like a song that could be listened on the beach with the feel of the wind blowing into your face. I tried not to listen to the lyrics because it’s a song about non-returned love. I can’t say that the song is made for Yuchun’s voice but he didn’t sound too bad singing the song or at least I can’t think of any better voices that could sing the song. The notes of the song actually matches his vocal range. The song actually gives people the courage to be good and fall in love with someone even if their love is not returned. It’s a light-hearted song yet not a sad love song. Or perhaps it was the mixing of the background music.
It’s not one of YuChun’s best song but yet it is a song that can be listened to many times and gradually fall in love with the melody of the song.
[MUSIC REVIEW] Kim Junsu’s That Man
Listening to Kim Junsu’s That Man full version for the first time. I have things to say!
Junsu hardly ever sings in low notes. Most of the time, he would be given high notes parts for all of his songs. So he didn’t get a chance to show his low notes singing capability.
From the song, I can tell that he’s very cautious at singing those low notes. But he manage to protray the song well. It has a different feel created as compared to the original version. But of course, given the credit that he’s one of the best Korean singers there’s no reason why Junsu will fail to give the song a credit.
What I feel is that, actually he sounds good singing low notes too. He should sing and practice more so he can gain more confidence and find more stability in his voice for low notes. Although there’s a slim chance he can do that unless he’s singing solo songs.
This sound is recorded live.
Thumbs up for Junsu!
[Music Review] Park Bom - Don’t Cry (Acoustic Ver.)
I actually preferred the acoustic version compared to the original version. I didn’t need to look at who’s done the mixing and compostion to know it. It just wasn’t the kind of style I was looking at Park Bom’s music. I was kinda disappointed until this acoustic version comes about.
I really need to give her the credits for her vocals. She doesn’t have a wide vocal range but manages her notes and pitches well. From this acoustic version of Don’t Cry, her unique voice stands out more and she was able to protray a message from the song. I’m not saying that her vocals in the original version wasn’t good but it just didn’t stand out due to the background music and mixing.
During the chorus part of the acoustic version starting from “it’s ok baby please don’t cry”, she didn’t fail to spend chills down my spine. Of course I understand fully of the lyrics which might also be part of the reason why.
As I listen to the song, an image and then strings of images come afloat my mind and then a story forms; a story not told true the lyrics of the song but a story that’s been told through the music as a whole - guitar sound, vocal, lyrics, feelings etc
