Complete is easily one of my favourite songs of the year at this point. It is an upbeat pop tune that is a great follow-up to their debut as it is an exciting and fun song. I do prefer the promo song from their debut because it had a bit of a more unpredictable structure, but what makes Complete so strong is that it ties in some mainstream elements and makes it just such a solid piece. I love how the beat keeps the verses progressing, while the chorus is repetitive but so catchy. The instrumental piece is also really fun. Great!
Fly Me to the Moon is another upbeat synth-pop song that has a heavy bass beat, which is what I love. I do find this one doesn’t have the same energy as the last song, but tries to cool things down, which is a great change. The melody is quite catchy, although I feel like it could have been more melodic and not just play on repetition. It certainly has its charms though and that beat just makes up for everything. Not as strong as the title track, but a solid album song.
Good Morning is the type of song that isn’t totally my cup of tea as it is more relaxed. It does a good job of showcasing the vocals of the boys and providing some variety, but it just doesn’t hit the spot. The chorus would be better if the boys hit the song a bit harder. It’s just all a bit too soft and it lacks the energy of the last two songs.
Luckily, Fifty Fifty comes streaming in and it brings us back to the upbeat sound. This time, it seems the guys are going for something just a bit less bright and more mature. It has that funky beat that was present in the other songs, but it changes things up with the chorus. Instead of sliding right in, it brings a very powerful and explosive entrance. It isn’t what I was expecting, but it’s a needed surprise.
Incomplete continues the dance/pop sound, but is a bit cooler in its delivery. Bringing in some tropical house elements, the song plays it up a little bit, but has a nice, flushed out chorus that works beautifully with the graceful music. While it isn’t as hard-hitting as the other upbeat songs, it still works really well with what it has. Solid tune.
86400 is the mini’s ballad and while I wasn’t expecting anything to top the title track or Incomplete, 86400 is easily my favourite song on the entire mini. It starts off gentle, focusing on the gentle. However, it is that gorgeous chorus hook that really works nicely with the boys’ vocals. They all sound great, especially when the song gets more powerful around the end. It’s one of the most memorable album tracks I’ve listened to recently.
Overall: This mini might not top of the group’s debut mini, but it is still one of the strongest mini-album’s I’ve listened to. I think the only weak song for me was Good Morning, which I felt wasn’t needed, even if it added a bit of variety. Every other track was a quality tune and had both a memorable melody and flushed out music. I especially enjoyed the fact that there were so many upbeat tunes to choose from.
