    yes
    oh yes.
    I really dislike the song, the mv, the whole performance that I find cringy, supperficial and absolutly lackluster.

    Also listened to just us 2, and while the song is less painful to the ear for me, the performance is again so unimpressive !!!?

    I had a bad feeling about this, I hope to like at least a song from the album.

    Compared to the other exo subunit debut, it's ridiculous imo.

    What a life is a bit meh for me, but I like the chorus. I think the style just doesn't work for me, also the vocals seem a bit oddly mixed? Idk. I like Hey Mama more.

    Song Review: EXO-SC – What A Life

    What a disappointment.

    From the teasers, I already knew that I’d have a hard time getting into this song, and set my expectations accordingly. Its swaggy hip-hop sound is not for me, and I find its producers Devine Channel to be very hit or miss. But even with those low expectations, What A Lifefound a way to grate on every last K-pop nerve I have.

    The song opens with this plonky, xylophone-esque synth that has become completely overused these past few years. That, combined with the insistent trap beat, makes for an instrumental that regurgitates the worst of today’s musical instincts. It’s a downright ugly sound, but would at least score some points if it felt the least bit original. Too many K-pop producers are seemingly pulling from the same pack of instrumental samples, and I can’t wrap my head around it. Don’t they want to be creative? Don’t they want to push things forward?

    Chanyeol and Sehun do what they can with this meager material, but they’re up against a wall. There’s only so much you can mine from a slurred, sing-song chorus that sounds as if it’s on downers. They’re both fine rappers, but the entire arrangement is so murky and sluggish and unrelentingly dour. Without an interesting beat to ride, they’re relegated to posing and looking cool and not much else. They’re far more dynamic performers than that, and it’s a shame to see their potential wasted on material with such low ambitions. In a bitterly disappointing K-pop summer, What A Life is our lowest point yet. We can only go up from here, I suppose.

    I loved City Lights and I'm really disappointed with this cd (especially in comparison) because is so not my type of music :c I also thought I would get to hear Chanyeol sing more than in EXO but nah.

    I actually loved the song. It was too over-the-top just the way i want it.

    ih I don't think it was over the top at all, I think it was very underwhelming at any facet.

    thanks for sharing such a valuable information, anyway don't watch it, it's super boring, but as we don't have the same taste you might actually like it

    Damn this is so sad....how all of us want to give them a lot of support since I know they worked hard but you can't force yourself to like something.

    I just did a review of the album !
    https://www.allkpop.com/forum/threads/exo-sc-debut-album-review-tediously-boring.320118/

    yep I feel a bit sorry, but I'm happy to see that there is not too much hypocrisy and fans supporting it only thanks to a sense of exo duty.
    It's so far from exo style, it's only normal that not all fans love this album !
