레인보우 (Rainbow) – Over the Rainbow Review
Rainbow is guilty pleasure Kpop. They don’t have the same power as other groups and seem to try hard, but not get real success on the music shows. While each member has varied levels of vocal ability, Over the Rainbow is a very strange full-length.
Carrying some of their more popular Korean singles translated into Japanese, these songs don’t sound much different from their originals. But when you start getting into the Japan-centric songs, there is a disconnect. Japanese pop and Korean-created Japanese pop is very different and most of the time not very successful.
In the case of Rainbow, they lose a lot of their upbeat image and submerge into a painful electro-synth mess. Partially it sounds like it’s used to cover members’ inability to really sing and the other is that Rainbow is trying to be presented as a dance-pop group.
Over the Rainbow is lacking the same feeling of the Korean releases and like other Kpop to Jpop groups, there’s something lacking.
