I was gonna demand to know why @Slice of Life and @RUNAWAY liked this instead of forcibly removing you from the forum, but it lined me up for a new page so I'll look past it! 7.826 YEAR: 2011 LOVE TO HEAR IT: (10 x 5) @Slice of Life, @camden_italian, @Monkey0, @junkos, @Joli Chat (9.25) @RUNAWAY (9) @Ana Raquel, @vague HATE TO SEE IT: (4) @soratami (5) @Crisp X (5.5) @M24 (6) @thommyh, @Empty Shoebox (6.25) @ysev AS FOR ME: it’s an 8.5 LUCKY UNNIES*: @thommyh (6), @Crisp X (5), @soratami (4) *meaning this was their lowest remaining score After riding out the first half more-or-less intact, Infinite now takes their third hit since reaching the top 50. ‘Nothing’s Over’ came from the group’s first single album, Infinitize, and the B-side ‘Shot’ is exceptional so y’all should check it out. This was their biggest hit to date, but also their final release as relative nugus before striking gold with ‘Be Mine’ a few months later. I do consider this a lesser Infinite track, but I say that like a parent who feels wrong for admitting the truth. I tend to prefer their heavier-weight cuts, and this is practically a Boyfriend song. That said, this is one of those songs that I always appreciate more as I’m listening to it than when I think about it later. I think the main reason is that the first half of the chorus (i.e. the bit where they repeat the title ad nauseum) is the weakest part of the song – it’s cute, but its sing-song nature makes for a poor centrepiece. This does the second half a disservice, as it's where the track properly pulls itself together, deploying an excellent vocal blend and great use of empty space. The song’s best decision was to use the key change to move straight into this refrain after Hoya's rap, forgoing the call-and-response. Of course, this is a “hardest on the ones you love” situation, and truthfully it’s one of the only times I’m able criticize Infinite’s work without my brain melting into a puddle of stan goo. I’m pretty sure I had to score this 45 minutes after listening just to avoid a reflexive 10 ddd. thommyh continues his rein of terror with a take I can’t really rebut: “Plz this is a debut-era Justin Bieber demo…” ff I hear it and I hate you. M24 falls prey to the siren call of illicit substances: “I keep hearing "nothing sober" kii. Not my favorite song from Infinite, but it's decent. I don't know why it's considered one of their best singles.” Wait is it? Not in my house it’s not! RUNAWAY dusts off his decade-old stan card: “seeing L get the iconic first lines on this song was fantastic as an early fan, and this was BEFORE Be Mine. Their career and discography is just so amazing.” Tea! And Joli Chat uses a word that’s never before been used to describe this song: “bop, vocals are quite gritty tho, especially in the chorus” I get what you mean but calling this "gritty" is sending me fhasjkldhaslk, Infinite crust punk kings!! Finally, Monkey0 justifies his ten… and lowkey this rate’s entire existence: “Perfect example how Sweetune can capture this bittersweet, nostalgic feeling in seemingly cute bop.” Ugh they’re really just the best, aren’t they? Below is the video and I honestly hate the DIY styling of it all fff. I really relate to Sungyeol though – being bummed about a heartbreak or whatever, yes, but then being plagued by well-intentioned irritants trying to cheer you up by being absolute clowns. If they really cared, they’d order him takeout and sit with him in silence. Seeing him drive off still scowling makes for an exceptional ending. … wait, oh no, from the YouTube comments: “I understand this MV now. They're all comforting Sungyeol for literally not having any lines back then. ;_;” Bye!
