AOA – GOOD LUCK


Track List:


1. Good Luck
2. 10 Seconds
3. Cherry Pop
4. Crazy Boy
5. Still Falls The Rain



The girls of AOA want to wish you 'Good Luck' with their 4th mini album. Ever since "Miniskirt" put them on the map, they've been cranking out body-moving dance hits for awhile now. Recently busy with solo activities and a subunit, they're together again, bringing you five new songs.

"Good Luck" is the title track, full of high-tempo awesomeness and a damn fine dance track. The energy is palpable and really gets your heart pumping. It's full of hooks too, so there's no short of fun here.



"Cherry Pop" and "Crazy Boy" are pretty standard AOA tracks, not bad, but not surprising either. The ones that I took a liking to to are "10 Seconds" and "Still Falls The Rain." "10 Seconds" slips inside your skull quietly, and their voices are beautiful and seductive. There's a lot to like, from time-changes to echo effects, parallel structure, and more. "Still Falls The Rain" is a pretty ballad, and I love ChoA's voice on this one -- I feel she doesn't get enough opportunities to shine nowadays.

As I said before, AOA doesn't disappoint. Not only are their songs awesome, there's also some real talent there that eclipses other idol groups. This EP is just as good as their other releases, if not even better. I'm looking forward to being graced by these angels for a long time to come.

MV REVIEW


They wowed you as cat burglars in "Like a Cat," and body-checked you as sexy lacrosse players in "Heart Attack," and they're back as 'Baywatch'-inspired lifeguards in "Good Luck."

The plot is non-existent. It consists of a lot of shots of the girls running along the beach, dancing on the beach, and partying. Not that there's anything wrong with all that, of course. Summer is right around the corner, so I suspect we'll see many more of these before fall starts knocking.



I could blast them for having an unoriginal concept, but I won't. Frankly, I like the summer fun videos. Not only are they fun to look at from a male perspective, a few of them try to incorporate something extra. The scenes where the girls run across the beach silhouetted by the sun? I'm a sucker for those, cliché though they might be.

Overall it was a brief moment of fun. The girls danced quite well, and the Baywatch nods had me laughing throughout. Regardless of whether or not that was the point, it still gets my vote.

It's the persons opinion, don't get offended lol

So 3 lines is the most you can say about the title track? I know reviews are meant to state the writer's opinion, but this writer's opinion is just always the same. He never gets deep into the song production or anything, the scores are always high and pointless (album concept? seriously?), etc. AKP should just get some more music reviewers, and definitely get rid of the scores.
