Miniskirt – AOA

Source: http://imageshack.com/a/img839/385/ma7w.jpg

AOA recently returned to the stage after promotions of Confused back in October with a new single, titled as Miniskirt. AOA is a good band, but I am not much of a fan of them as I am with other groups. I feel like the whole Ace Of Angel’s concept has been lost with these girls. They used to be a  girl group and a band at the same time, but now only a girl group. What happened to the band side of the group? AOA Black, I think it was what the band unit was called. It was pretty original, but it seems the girls just neglected the whole thing. Quite disappointing. Anyway, the group is back with the exception of member Seolhyun, who was injured prior (like a day or two before) to the comeback. On top of that, the girls are finally getting recognition for their songs, with this song topping charts upon release (according to sources).

Yeah, I was not that excited for this comeback as I was with Confused. Maybe because the whole thing really got overshadowed by other artists coming back at the moment. The song was rather boring to me. There was nothing as great in this song as there was in Confused. Some of the vocals did not match with the instrumental of the song and the chorus itself was not as catchy as it should have been. The rapping from the rapper in this band is really whiney in this song. It is so high pitch and it sounds like a child who has a blocked nose. And the high whistle likes sounds throughout the song were pretty annoying for me to listen to. Usually I would fall for the high notes, but after listening to the live performance, yeah, wow. Not impressed. Even not impressed with the song.

Honestly, I still have not watched the music video prior to writing this review. So hence, here is my reaction to it. There is a lot of emphasis on the thighs in this video. Straight from the start, I think I got a good 5 second look at that girl’s thigh. Wow. Then she proceeds to sleep. I am not a major fan of their black colour dresses. But I really actually enjoy look at them in the red mini skirt and white blouse. Cause damn, they look good in that. Major problem with the car though. Umm… I hoped you park because taking your stockings off in a car that is moving and your a driver is not really as safe as I expected it would be. Also, is that a sofa? Like did you use a sofa as the seat of the car? Well. There really is not much to say about this video. Just girls “showing off” their thighs and mini skirts.

The choreography is alright. Not the best, but it will do. I don’t know, but when they shake their bottoms, I had a scene in my head that the girls dressed up as bunnies. Like the bushy tail? Nope? Okay… I like the zip part of the dance. That was probably the best. The chairs, well, I am leaning to the no no side a little too much there.

2/10. Yeah, not really the best song for me. It was too boring to listen to. Their previous songs were much better.

Confused – AOA

Source: http://www.soompi.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/aoa_confused-800×450.jpg

After promoting Moya, with the band subunit, AOA Black, the girls are back as AOA, with Confused. Many bands this year have gone for the more sexy look, even though bands who you thought were sexy, became a whole heap sexier this year. As competitiveness in the industry heats up, AOA had decided to make a comeback with a song style that you have never heard from the band before. I never reviewed Moya, mainly because, of time and that it was not the best song to make a review about. Seriously, why would you want to read me moaning on about how “neutral” the song was etc.

The song is amazing. I have to say it. There are some parts that i am not that fond of. For example, that little ballad part did not fit the song. It was a good intro, but compared to the rest of the song, it was not as great. I was quite surprised when I first heard the song, cause right after the intro, wow. Must I say any more. The chorus was catchy as hell, making it a really addictive song. Honestly, got me singing along throughout the song every time I am listening to it, The bridge fitted the song quite well, but I found the first rappers rap a little whiny. I don’t know why, but it seems more whiny in this song than in Get Out. Also, when I hear the song, I honestly cannot tell that there were two people rapping, it sounds like one person throughout the whole song. Really great song.

The music video opens up with something a little different to the song itself. There was this ballad song, much different from the song’s intro. Not sure if it was like the other song on their single album. Then we get introduced to the girls in black and white tight clothing. Like the clothing is really tight, but hey they look pretty good in them. I love the couch usage in this video and dance. It gives the song that more sexy appeal that it needs and also it is different to what is currently in the industry at the moment (such as Nine Muse’s usage of chairs in their choreography). Maybe the rapper went a little overboard on the couch in some parts, but I really like the music video. I do have one complaint, but it has to do with the dance.

The complaint it, when they have their fingers in their mouths, am I the only who thinks they don’t sing along or anything, cause I ain’t seeing their mouth move! And for those haters out there who think the band is copying Sistar’s Alone, well, I don’t see your logic. Yes, the dance looks similar, but they only took like 1 dance move from the whole Sistar performance, repeated that and added their own move in. And yes, the dance was quite captivating and it looked like it fitted the song real well. The feet dragging and the fingers in their mouths make the whole performance, really good looking.

9/10. Amazing comeback with a really great song, music video and live performance. Like what more can you ask for?
