Psy made an explosive comeback with Part 1 of his 6th album, “싸이6甲 Part 1” and displayed his unique, and strong skills as a song writer, and an artist. I loved every bit of this album, and I can’t critique anything about it, so this review is more about the things I loved most about the album.
청개구리 (Blue Fog) ft. G-용 (G-Dragon)
“청개구리 (Blue Fog)” is about being a rule breaker, always doing what you want, and never doing as your is told. This one of my top favorites from the album (not that I didn’t like them all) and not just because G-Dragon was featured on it.
Psy and G-Dragon’s voices, and energy mesh well, and I think they should do more songs together. Their distinct styles of music came together to make something amazing!
강남스타일 (Gangnam Style)
This was a classic, and signature Psy song, what more can I say? It was epic, and HILARIOUS!
The parking lot dance battles
the flying garbage
the guys’ day at the sauna
the funny choreography
all made this video the best! I am telling you idols have nothing on Psy, and they never will.
77학개론 (Intro to 77) ft. 리쌍 (Leessang) & 김진표 (Kim Jin Pyo)
This collaboration between LeeSsang, Kim Jin Pyo and Psy was more perfection. I have to say I keep forgetting that Kim Jin Pyo is featured on this track, I just was focusing on LeeSsang, and Psy’s voices so that was all I heard.
I definitely want to see more of this collaboration.
Never Say Goodbye ft. 윤도현 (Yoon Do Hyun)
This is my favorite song from the album, and it is definitely in my top songs of the year. It is a beautiful blend of Rock, Ballad, and Hip Hop, and I couldn’t get that from anyone else but Psy.
I love Psy’s singing voice, and it works so well with Yoon Do Hyun’s voice and the rock genre. After listening to this song I had to wonder why they never worked together before.
Psy is doing really well with this album, and experiencing a lot of success with it, and for good reason. This was 2 year production, and the quality of the album shows that every minute put into it was put to good use.
My favorite part about this album is that each song was Psy’s twist on a different genre, and I thought it was a nice touch to feature artists from each of those genres.
This album is a testament to Psy’s ability to reinvent himself, and I am excited for Part 2.
