This is the review for (as stated above). In the first part of the album the boys were about jazz and disco, in the 2nd part the boys continue to prove their versatility in being to handle other styles of music thrown at them.

All used up
Up first is a sad sounding ballad -emotional if you’d like. This is another song that showcase the good use of their different types of voice. (smooth vs. rough). It’s been awhile since I heard a Kpop group with a member who has such a rough voice since Fly to the sky. It seems really useful to have a member with such a voice to add more flavor to a song.
Dynamite feat. Tasha
Whoa. Boy group idol moment there. This song is ultimately a dance track. I must say I was pretty caught off guard when a dance track started playing. I almost thought I had the wrong album. The quartet doesn’t lose to the current top idol bands at all with this track. In fact, it’s got it’s own originality to it (which is more than I can say for some other idol groups). Tasha was every bit suited as rapper of this track as her sassy style compliments the song.
In this track we get a glimpse of another music genre we haven’t seen in the current Kpop scene. Talk about refreshing. The song reminds me of the gospel music done in black churches (and Under the sea of Little Mermaid haha). With a modern twist of course. The intro was pretty neat as at first it was more funky then it transition into something else but in the end we get a mix of both kind of genre. It’s almost genius.
Another ballad track, this track definitely sounds like a drama ost. Frankly speaking the two ballads aren’t really that different. Maybe they wanted to start and end with a ballad? (as if to tie up the album) Though i’m not really complaining because the boys sound great in a ballad, if you haven’t listen to both ballads enough to be familiar there might be a chance of confusing the two.
And that’s the end of both parts of Ulala Session.
