This is my first time I am reviewing Madtown. They have been active since October and I am finally getting around to reviewing this guys. They are a 6 member boy group consisting of: Moos, Daewon, Lee Geon, Jota, Heo Jun, Buffy and H.O. They debuted with Yolo and made their comeback with New World back in March. Now they are back with another acronym based title, OMGT. They are under J.Tune Entertainment.
OMGT is a hip hop based dance track with hints of that electronic modern style. I personally don’t mind the song. Is it the best track ever? No. But it does its job in satisfying my ears when I listen to it. I actually like this track over any of their other tracks. But it doesn’t really make me want to listen to the track or the band over and over again. The song is monotone to me and it seems to be at that same level throughout the song. The rapping is good and I like how it is infused with the vocals. The “OMG Thx” part is pretty addictive and catchy. The vocals add to that monotone issue for me, but at the same time, they do fit in well with the instrumental. It is a relaxing track, to be honest which gives that satisfying feeling. Sure if this song popped up on my playlist, I’d be happy to listen to it, but not continuously listen to it when I fall in love with a track.
The music video is cringe worthy. Their acting is not that great. Let me get that out of the way. At the start they looked like some pervy guys that are going to some club that has hot girls. And I got it totally wrong, since they start worshipping the TV. Somehow, the lady that they all like start to make her way through the TV into their world, but her attempt is cut short as someone turned off the TV, leaving one real leg in their world. Yeah… My thoughts exactly. Removing the odd plot from the video, the rest of it is fine. Nice close-ups and the dance scenes are great.
The dance to me seems cocky. Am I the only one with that impression? Just me? I think it was for their concept to impress the girl, but it came off as a whole heap of cockiness. Body waves seem to be taking KPOP by storm this year as well. This is like the 15th dance that has a body wave in it. That being said, I like it.
Okay comeback. Okay song, music video and dance. 5.5/10
