ANDROID -modest gothic remix- (CD only bonus track)
ANDROID -Less Vocal-
BLINK -Less Vocal-
After the last two singles, it’s really nice to come back to something upbeat from the duo. ANDROID is really danceable and oddly catchy for me so I can be happy to be around it. I will say I heard a lot of CHANGMIN in the song but that’s alright because he’s my favorite lol. Some of the chorus does remind me of “Survivor” and I’m also ecstatic about that lol. I also noticed that the second verse/chorus is heavy with YUNHO. My only qualm has to be once again the random addition of the dubstep breakdown…it was really out of place and kind of threw the song off for a while. Either way, this is a good song!
The B-side of the single is just as upbeat and synth-heavy but a little more edgier. I really don’t know if I like the swervy/screech synth melody of the verses but once the chorus comes on it goes away and it gets a lot better. Though it really sounds like they’re saying ~brink, brink~ which could’ve worked as the title than BLINK XD. I thought this was a pretty good B-side to go along with “ANDROID”.
3. ANDROID -modest gothic remix-
Modest gothic remix? I wasn’t expecting Tohoshinki to make a remix of ANDROID into something totally 180 of its original setting. Instead of the heavy dance style, it’s covered in hard guitar riffs and piano filling in some spaces. It actually kind of works lol. It doesn’t walk off the main melody of the original and lets CHANGMIN and YUNHO continue to work the song out in a rather good fashion.
I find it strange that THSK hasn’t really had a single where it’s an upbeat and a ballad in one package…it’s really one or the other. A tleast ANDROID is a really strong single from the duo. The lead track is cool and up-to-date which is good but maybe a little too much with that dubstep breakdown. At least the remix is just as good as the original and giving the tune a different flavor. BLINK on the other hand is good too, but not as strong lol. Not bad, I’m having hope this album will be even better than “TONE” was.
