There are a few things that bug me about Rainbow’s recent comeback and first “full-length album” release. First, the style isn’t very Rainbow-like. The first part of the album consists of mostly bland cutesy sugar pop. The title track is pretty decent, but the rest of the songs sound like something written for and rejected by label mate KARA.
It’s a shame that they don’t make better use of Woo-ri’s rapping. She’s actually quite good. I’d like to link to a clip of her speed rapping with Outsider, but the clip was taken off Youtube some time ago.
I accept that there are a certain amount of filler songs on an album, but when releasing an album in two parts, isn’t part one supposed to make me want to buy part two? I doubt they saved all the good stuff for the second part.
Rainbow’s been away for so long, I expected a bigger comeback. It doesn’t seem like they’ve been given enough attention by their label.
