  1. To anyone who gave "Deepened" lower than a 9:

  2. The fact that DooDoomChit beated I Just Wanna Dance and Deepened is a .... choice.

    DAL*SHABET - FRI.SAT.SUN
    Avg: 7.90

    10 - @ryan_riot92 @Laurence Nope @Reboot @Mikl C @ajmkv
    5 - @Salami @Vesperly
    My Score: 8


    It's probably quite cruel but also very apt to kick this out on a Monday afternoon right?

    BECAUSE LET'S BE REAL:

    [​IMG]

    The start of the week, the back to work slump, is a bore. No one enjoys Mondays (although you could argue mid-week is worse). How can we all keep ourselves alive and awake amongst the madness of things we had left undone? Of our angry bosses being idiots constantly and completely unaware that y'all have lives?

    EASY - HULK SMASH!



    Not content with blowing everyone's minds with Someone Like U in Jan 2016, the Dal*Sha4 came back with another banger. Like where were you hiding these when Joker was released? They'd be the perfect trio with B.B.B's retro stomper leanings.

    YET - this winds up pre-top 20 unable to achieve the same heights as either of those songs in the Underrated Rate and.... i'm ok with that. Sorry ladies, we're no way close to the end of the week.

    [​IMG]

    But to the plusses - the teaser roll-out was bizarre to the extreme with so many images and concepts bundled into the visuals that I wasn't 100% where they were going with it. There's Ah Young's revenge in the above mini-video, leading me into thinking they were going to a superpower direction, but also the Work vs Play teaser images that had not one, not two but three different installments:

    THE AOA SEXY JOB DIRECTORY
    [​IMG]

    BREAKFAST AT SEOUL-UNNIES
    [​IMG]

    AN EPIC BATTLE BETWEEN CORPORATE & KLERB
    [​IMG]


    SO MANY VISUALS.

    BUT WAIT


    [​IMG]

    Especially after Someone Like U, I was so excited to see what weekend monster they were unleashing upon us. I wanted drama, suit dancing, red romance, sexy club breakdowns. For me personally it still hasn't completely clicked in the same way as SLU, I was somewhat disappointed in fact. The verses and the breakdown recall of Jack U's output (which I can go with) but the Frankenbop elements never quite mesh together. It's a slow-jam of a dance track, somewhere straddling a line between erratic and laid-back in a way i'm not sure I can pin to another song.

    I love the deep "hey hey" background grunts in the chorus' tail-end.
    I like the ramp up into the chorus.
    I appreciate the vaguely sing-rap delivery at some points.
    The rapid holler of "BABY DANCE" is phenomenal.

    BUT. The look is so right, the video is cute in their working lady #realism and chilling with the gals appeal but i've still not managed to fully get the track. It's a bop, I know it's a bop but I never come back to it. My 8 is more based on objective appreciation than actual usuage (which would be like a 6?). Sorry ladies, I love your work but this isn't my favourite play.

    ~GROAN~

    Although I will say that the lives are, as always, fantastic and lead me to believe this would actually work better at a pre-drinks or big party. Share your thoughts? I would but I'm shockingly low on social engagements these days.
    *sobs*



    MONDAY MONDAY MONDAY FRIDAAAAAAYYYY

    **********

    Welcome y'all

    [​IMG]

    i've called this board meeting to address the sudden animosity among are dear sweet sub-unit. Working hours are meh I admit but we're going to learn how to bop together again capiche?

    Vesperly has the floor first: "I'm not sure how I feel about the farty trumpets (?)"

    FARTY IS THE NEW FIERCE
    [​IMG]

    Those in disagreement say aye - ThighHighs are see your hand fluttering: "This is a great laid back bawp. I don’t quite see what everyone sees that makes it a classic, but it’s a super fun tune with a really adorable video. Perfect for getting ready to go out." My thoughts exactly. Slice of CEO, don't rip the paper please - I know you like that texture: "The tattered jeans are so iconic. And that chorus is so vibrant and fluffy. But... that's about it. It's not quite Someone Like U, that's for sure."

    WHAT IS?
    [​IMG]

    Whip out the powerpoints cystren. GeiPanda has his finger on the pulse of consumer opinion: "Good, but I can see why it didn't catch on with the public - not that memorable." and Reboot has all the statistics concerning our commercial conversion rates: "The tempo changes threw me a bit at first, but I properly love this now."

    Reboot now be like:
    [​IMG]

    From the left-hand side of the boardroom, Robinho#1 picks up on our previous project: "Underrate bop."
    but thank goodness D is for Danger! has been taking minutes - it's a round-up: "Not as iconic as Someone Like U, but still amazing. I love the rhythm changes during the chorus and the return of the 4minute Hate fart trumpets. Woohee in ripped jeans and fishnets. That is all folks!

    [​IMG]"

    Ryan_Riot has answers for his own questions: "Was I nervous about this comeback? Yes. Should I have been? Not really because this track was just as good as “Someone Like U”! I guess I was thinking they wouldn’t be able to top it but they came pretty damn close. This song is so fun and is my new Weekend Anthem!"

    KPJ PARTY ANTHEM MAYBE?

    [​IMG]

    Final statement of this corporation AGM goes to Exec. Ajmkv whose forecasts have never been too far wrong: "I said this in the Underrated Rate:
    AND I DID.
    This was what I wanted from Dal Shabet after being frustratingly close to loving Someone Like U but not quite being able to. THIS finally hooked me and didn't let me go until quite recently, snatching weaves on my chart and earning my (very prestigious) Choreography of the Year award (you know, for the incredible ajmkv Awards of course). I know this was less popular than Someone Like U both in SK and here, but this is the superior 2016 Dal Shabet single (and dare I say their best ever? No? Don't kill me please~)

    [​IMG]
    D'awwww please don't disband, gorls."

    PLEASE NO.
    QUICK GET THE GODDESSES ON THE PHONE

  4. FRI. SAT. SUN. is that relatable 'I will be dead to the world during the weekend, please don't try to reach me' song. Ironically, I have not listened to it since I entered the world of unemployment.

    BRAVE GIRLS - HIGH HEELS
    Avg: 7.95

    11 - @ThighHighs
    10 - @Squashua @ryan_riot92 @D is for Danger! @ajmkv

    2 !!! - @Robinho#1
    My Score: 10


    My oh my oh my. So soon after Deepened was viciously culled by a matter of decimal points? On the very same day they release their hopeful comeback LOLINLOLINLOLIN? When did we become monsters cystren?

    WHEN DID WE LOSE OUR WAY?

    [​IMG]

    High Heels leap frogs Deepened's original victory in the Underrated rate as more and more people clambor to accept the Church of Brave Bawps into their hearts. It didn't make it to #17 like last time, it might have underachieved on the score average front but has a song had such an impact on this forum over the cross of last year?

    I DOUBT IT
    (except T.T)

    Because if you want a further in-depth not-completely-extra read then HERE is the place to go. In the meanwhile, I have a sermon to sell to y'all and a mission from the K-Gawds to SAVE YOUR SOULS.

    **********

    The battlelines are so clearly drawn with the write-ups for this I had no idea. Nearly everyone who was around for the first rate it appeared in were still here for this - maybe it was a "have-to-be-there" moment?

    Enter those in need of conversion, godspeed to y'all. McQueer at least wants to be indoctrinated: "I want to love this more but the voice of the one who sings the chorus....lord't......." Poor ballerina Minyoung... Equally not swayed by the Holy Girls's gospel are Salami: "Bit boring really." and servant of the fallen angel Robinho#1 - "Not for me. Bye."

    BAI~~
    [​IMG]

    New to the congregation, but more in a touristy 'i've heard... rumors about this place' way, is Capitan: "I think Deepened is the better of the two Brave Girls singles in the rate but I gave this an 8 simply because of the sassy gurl~ reference that came from it. True innovators of the PJ K-pop lexicon."

    LEXICONIQUE
    [​IMG]

    No gloom anywhere in these parts. You're in the Kingdom of FOXAAY now chil'. Slice of a Preacher Man is spreading the good word door-to-door: "Ugh still so iconic. Sometimes, we just need that one good trashy bop, you know? And this is the perfect trashy bop. And the music video is such a kii. I love it so much." As we all do. None more so than former (but still often) sexy concept sinner D is for Danger! - he's a partially changed man now: "I'm a sassy gorl! I'm a tawp gorl! I'm a pretty gorl! I'm foxy gorl! Winner of the Best Wig Snatching Performance GRAMAMA, High Heels delivered the summer fun. It was light-hearted and with a great message. Sure it's paint-by-numbers Brave Bros, but that not always a bad thing." I'mma need to hear it a lil louder now. Ryan_Riot, use that angelic voice to get us to GAWD: "How can someone NOT love this song!? Like it may not be the catchiest or the best song out there but man does it just make you wanna get up and put on your high heels! It’s all about being sexy, powerful, and confident. How can you not smile when you hear it? IMMA SASSY GURL! IMMA TAWP (tough) GURL!"

    Up to the altar is our beloved, Ajmkv - rebuke the Korean Public's sins!: "Again, another of those songs that I feel like I've taked about extensively in other rates. Brave Girls really hooked me with this (after having completely passed me by with Deepened and losing me once more with Yoohoo), but it makes me sad that this didn't see any sort of success outside of our circle. Let's give this the recognition it deserves, fellow sassy gurls!" and GeiPanda knows that higher heels bring him closer to God - "Our holy gospel."

    THE POWER OF THE SASS SPREADETH FAR & WIDE

    [​IMG]

    Y'all can't leave these hallowed halls until we've said grace with the ultimate TAWP gurll & Archbishop of High Heels ThighHighs: "The most fun you can have in three minutes in the year two thousand and sixteen. I stan this song more than any other piece of music released in 2016 in any language. Completely irreverent, preposterously stupid, and the straight up FUNNEST song of the year. The first time I heard this piece of glorious trash, I half smiled and moved on. Then it played automatically on youtube and I listened to it and had a bit of fun. It wasn’t until the 7th or 8th time I sought this song out on my own that I realized it had taken over my entire mind, body, and spirit. I WAS a sassy girl. A top girl. A Pretty girl? Check. Foxy? You betcha. This. Song. Gets. Me. Bodied. Consider me the piece of hair extension that could no longer maintain its grasp on Hayoon’s scalp. They may no longer be together as a sevensome, but what a way to go out."

    AMEN & HALLELUJAH CYST
