소녀시대 (Girls’ Generation) – 훗 (Hoot) Review

It seems Korean is going full speed with the Hallyu craze because and Girls’ Generation has released their newest mini-album Hoot. But considering the Kpop landscape, the group is still presenting their image in their own ways.

Hoot’s concept of 1960’s James Bond image is a big change and works for some of the members, but others looks very strange. The title single has the catchy chorus and hooks necessary to be interesting.

But again with the mini-album, the other tracks are a bit throwaway going back to the innocent image that doesn’t work well for the group since they have had so many concepts and the innocent sound is a little old.

I feel like the group would to better to release digital singles rather than mini-albums because the title tracks are much stronger. The proper albums containing a bundle of singles and some more ballad tracks work better.

It’s obvious that the Kpop genre is about single songs, but Girls’ Generation usually doesn’t have strong secondary songs.
