ALL MY LOVE IS FOR YOU
Strange that the group would dive even further back to redo Oh! (especially since they’ve been doing original A-sides since “MR. TAXI”. Not that I’m complaining too much since Oh! was such a great track originally when it was released in Korean. The new Japanese take isn’t quite bad either for the most part and retains that coolness about it so I like it…but still strange that SNSD is going backwards in their catalog to do Japanese self-covers.
2. ALL MY LOVE IS FOR YOU
Though I guess on the flipside of the coin, the B-side is an original track and it’s my first time running into SNSD doing more of a slwoer ballad-like track (well reviewing) because the song reminds me of “Time Machine” for some reason. Beyond that, the song is kind of refreshing to hear on a single and I’m liking the English lines here as well. I kind of enjoyed the song oddly enough too hmmmm.
After that really bare single, “PAPARAZZI”, SNSD I guess thought it was time to play it safe for their next single by releasing Oh! since it’s already an established Korean song and bring it over to Japan. I like it, but I think they’re at the point where they don’t need to do that. At least with ALL MY LOVE IS FOR YOU, they kind of brought a new element, which is slower songs and I like it…solid single, but is it well-deserving is the better question at hand.
