1. Can’t say
I wasn’t expecting VIXX to release a lighter pop song (as they’re kind of well-known for their more angsty and edgier concepts in Korea) though I guess you can say “Love Equation” was too since that was their last release as the 6 members. Can’t say is pretty poppy almost a little 90’s nostalgia behind it with the drum beats and style. All 6 members do get a good enough set of lines spread between them and I really like hearing Leo and Hyuk’s vocals a lot. Ravi is here and there with his parts as he has a rather unique voice…overall decent as their first original Japanese track.
2. Mukae ni Ikou
I was kind of expecting a ballad to come out from a title like this, but Mukae ni Ikou is kind of a funkier song for the group! Though due to that, the Japanese does get slightly muddled due to the accents the guys have. Though I do think this song is a bit better than “Can’t say” as the group sounds like they’re having a little more fun and the energy is raised by quite a bit too. I suppose it’s got the better turnout.
VIXX’s 2nd single and I’m happy both songs are of original arrangements this time (not to call out “Error” because it’s such a good song regardless). Can’t say was an interesting song for them as they kind of rarely do these lighter pop songs. Though I would say Mukae ni Ikou is a little more towards their style but they haven’t done anything funky since their early days so it’s nice to see a song like this in their collection. Overall a decent single, but I hope their next one brings out their firepower.
