JYJ: Xia Junsuโ€™s Tarantallegra Part 2

OMG. OMG. OMG

What a perfection. Junsu’s new MV, Tarantallegra really rocks my Monday!~

Tarantallegra. Daebak!!~

This song, composed and arranged by the man himself and the lyrics by JUNO, Junsu’s very own twin.

Talk about brotherhood. Great collaboration.

I decided to listened to the whole album first before posted this post..so I have been saving this post..for more than 3 days now. LOL. Above was written..on Monday and got mental block after that. Due to Junsu’s hotness. LOL.

Anyway..

Xia Junsu’s Tarantallegra. My humble review and opinion. I don’t talk music much, but pretty much on what I feel and heard. :). Let’s see… we got…

1. Sunset

This track..is kind of like..music introduction to the album and Tarantallegra song. What amazed me is..the mixing, the arrangement of the music..blends in perfectly. That strong beat sound..thumb..thumb..thumb..makes my thumping too. As the title of this track, Sunset, it suits perfectly with the overall feels of the song. Really genius..

2. Tarantallegra Featuring Flowsik of Aziatix

Now, I can typed the words correctly. LOL. As many know what the meaning of this word by now, let me enlighten you guys again. Tarantallegra is a jinx or spell for another person’s feet to dance uncontrollably. Oh wait! That is the definition from Harry Potter. Anyway…you get the rough idea right? Tarantella is a dance originating from Italy. Meanwhile, Allegra maybe derived from the word Allegro meaning quick and lively.

Okey…first…the MV. OMG! OMO! OMONA! I was…like facepalm myself for countless times. And the after effect of watching the MV, neck pain. Arrggghhhh!~ Junsu’s…really something.. The opening..shows Junsu and his dancers..looking sturdy, with stern face. Junsu’s strut, Junsu in red skirty outfit and Junsu as a lady. What?? OMG, I swear I don’t realized that lady in the MV was actually Junsu himself!~ He looks so pretty!~ Junsu’s really rock it in that MV.

Okey, the music. In my layman words..the music..is kind of strong beat sound in fusion with pop. Not typical K-Pop,SM kind of music. It is just so different that makes you want to humming all day long and wondering yourself whether you’re humming to an english or a korean songs. The chorus is so catchy, and make me want to corrected my pronunciation of Tarantallegraย without missing the beat! LOL. Really not your typical K-Pop sound. Totally JYJ feel. Junsu’s way. ๐Ÿ™‚ Additional with impressive rapping from Flowsik. A genius from group Aziatix. Complete the wholesome music. I really like the drums on the intro. Makes my heart thumping real fast! LOL

3. Set Me Free (Featuring Bizzy)

Hahahaha..the intro…got techno feel.rap greeting from Bizzy. His rapping in this song really makes me go..wow!~ Junsu..is awesome. Ballad or upbeat song, he can pull it off.

4. No Gain

Jaejoong’s very own baby. Oh wait! I think, if I remembered it clearly, Jaejoong sing this song during the fan meeting of their movie, The Day, right?? I think some genius fans out there realized this as well. I was just merely remembered after I read it somewhere. Anyway, this song..really got Jaejoong’s feel. I mean..in terms of awesome piano arrangement and the intro..maybe I’m delusional but somehow I feel that similarities or signature mark of Jaejoong’s composition. Coolness! This song is one of my favorite. ๐Ÿ™‚ Jaejoong really knows how to exploit Junsu’s voice to make this song really irresistible and easy to the ears.

5. I Don’t Like Love ์‚ฌ๋ž‘์ด ์‹ซ๋‹ค๊ตฌ์š”

I love this song! OMG I do! Don’t make start with this. Each time I listened to this song, I feel like crying. No..I cried, for real. OMG . Junsu’s voice, it is just superb. Call me drama queen or dramatic, I feel surge of mixed emotion every time I listened to this song. So powerful, I can feel so much love, agony, pain from the song. Overflowing emotion coming from his heavenly voice.

6. Turning Around And Around ๋Œ๊ณ  ๋Œ์•„๋„

My another personal favorite. This song..got sageuk drama feel to me. LOL. Me and sageuk drama.. LOL. Anyway, I love that ‘lalalalalllaalalalla’ part. Silly me. LOL. I think I can hear the orchestra in the music. Violin..and other instruments. ๐Ÿ™‚ Genius. The orchestra feels really creeps into me. OMG. I can imagine now Junsu performing this song with orchestra. Really daebak!

7. Intoxication

I am thankful CJes decided to put this song into this album. This song..the music itself already sound very provocative. LOL. Grrrrr~~ Somehow, this song gets me into the mood to dance salsa *Scent of Women* LOL. I am so dramatic. The music is really sexy and alluring at the same time.

8. Breath Featuring Double K

Woot! Again, another upbeat song in this album. I think Junsu..rapping or sing real fast in second verse of the song. Somehow, there is distinctive sound of JYJ can be heard in this song? Am I,again, being delusional? Anyway, Double K nailed this song with strong hiphop feels infused into the song. Coolness

9. Obviously Know ์•Œ๋ฉด์„œ๋„

Ballad song. Another song that can make me cry. Especially when I’m alone in my car while listening to this song *dramatic mode again* . LOL. The arrangement of the song really good. Junsu’s on the high note, really awesome in this song. Full of emotion.

10. Lullaby Featuring Gaeko of Dynamic Duo

My personal favorite. Sexy ballad song. Junsu’s sexy yet heavenly voice collided with sexy music. Explosive ballad song! Makes me all warm inside. Victorious rap by Gaeko of Dynamic Duo.

11. Fever

An upbeat song that makes me have this kind of thought..Somebody or any dance group in any dance competition will use this song to dance to. This song got this kind of feels. That groovy feels and catchy beat. The music again, suits Junsu’s new good badass image perfectly :). The chorus reminds me of other music genre. Again, not typical pop sound.

12. The Tree that Holds the Dew ์ด์Šฌ์„ ๋จธ๊ธˆ์€ ๋‚˜๋ฌด

Another personal favorite. Very JYJ feels. ๐Ÿ™‚ Junsu’s mesmerized voice caught me at the very first word he sings in this song. Really daebak. Soulful and yet strong emotion surged in. Like strong current, keep pulling me in. No joke.

My post already become very lengthy. But in order to make it more beautiful, I need to add in some pictures. Please bear with me. ๐Ÿ˜€

That’s all for now. Toodlesss!

Junsu..hot & sexy pose OMG it is just a simple pose for god’s sake! LOL. ๐Ÿ˜€

No Gain!!?? Cool!~ Jaejoongie’s composition.

Oh! I saw JUNO as lyricist! JUNO is Junsu’s twinnie right????

Saw some good collaboration here. Again, we have Flowsik of Aziatix. I always like Aziatix and personally I think, Flowsik is good rapper ya’ll. LOL. And then we have Bizzy and Double K, both are Korean hiphop artists. And finally we have Gaeko of Dynamic Duo. Cool line up.. Can’t wait to hear how good those collaboration will be. It must be HYPE!~

One thing for sure, those hiphop artists I mentioned above are all part of the Movement, a Korean hip-hop crew, which includes several other well-known hip-hop artists. Cool right? Except for Flowsik, he is in class of his own. ๐Ÿ˜€

Some people might wondering, why ‘Xia’ not ‘Xiah’? I am questioning myself the same question too. Well, since I’m learning korean, beginner class…the word is in hangulย  written as ‘์‹œ์•„’. As far as I’m concerned, based on my not-so-good korean, it is pronounced as ‘Xia’ instead of ‘Xiah’.

‘ใ……’ as ‘ss’ with additional of ‘ใ…ฃ’ as ‘ee’ so it will become as shi or xi. And then we have ‘์•„’. ‘ใ…’ is pronounced as ‘a’. Since ใ… is a vowel, it cannot stand alone, that is when we need to add ‘ใ…‡’ to make it work. So, it become as XIA.

Wow. Korean is challenging. :). I am not sure whether I am right or not. I have limited vocabulary and information on Korean language. I maybe make a mistakes here, compared to mother tongue speaker. ๐Ÿ˜€

Nevertheless…

I have to wait for another 2 weeks to get my hands on this CD. Gaaahh~ It’s okey then.. ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, guys, please buy this CD from your trusted sources. Those purchased CDs will be contributing ranking in Hanteo Chart. One thing I know for sure that my local provider, buys directly in South Korea. Bought many K-pop items from her and she lived down south area in Malaysia!~ What else can I do, I don’t trust other sources. :). I have some trust issue in terms of contributing numbers in JYJ’s product purchasing. LOL.

Again..look forward for the fantastic and awesome album from Junsu of JYJ. I am glad that Jaejoongie have contributed his baby to Junsu. All his composition are unbelievably good!~

Junsu, Fighting!~ JYJ, Fighting!~
