Big Bang – Alive Review

Big Bang haven’t been in the music scene for most of 2011. Each member went off to produce and release solo efforts and then events in their real lives changed a lot of their plans.

Alive is their return to Korean pop. The solo releases show influence on the album, but it does show that the group have definitely matured in their abilities as vocalists.

The lead single “Blue” is the weakest in terms of energy, but does illustrate the change in point of view. When they return to their dance pop and R&B style, the impressive sound and presentation returns.

I’m glad that Big Bang have returned because they are one of the new fronts of how Korean pop is changing.
