Orange Caramel – First Mini Album Review

The First Mini Album (EP)

It’s a little obvious that Pledis Entertainment has taken a hint from Morning Musume when they decided to split After School into sub-groups. The first being Orange Caramel taking thereof the newest members and creating a very Japanese pop group. Their single sounds very influenced from MoMusu, and the song itself is very unlike the previous singles released by the group.

That’s not to say the song is bad, but the overly ageyo theme is extreme. The second song off the single is more of a ballad, but again doesn’t sound much like the core sound of the group. Orange Caramel is a good experiment to see if fans of After School are willing to buy into multiple groups splintered off the main, but it leaves the question of what the other members will debut as in sound and appearance.
