Within the lead as much as his second mini album, EXO’s D.O. has pre-released the light I Do (별 떨어진다). If previous songs are any indication, “light” is more likely to be an apt descriptor for this album. Like many idols-turned-solo, D.O. appears to choose this gentle, coffeehouse sound.
However not like some idols, D.O. has the vocal tone to do that type justice. He’s a type of singers I’d gladly take heed to no matter style. As a music, I Do feels slight. Its melodies are catchy and well-composed, however the minimalist manufacturing and laid-back vitality restricts its general enchantment. Nevertheless, D.O.’s vocal provides a ton of life to the music. Tone apart, his phrasing tugs at each line with a way of character that elevates this straightforward monitor. He brings a pure rhythm to his efficiency, giving I Do an surprising swing. It makes me want he’d discover extra daring materials inside this identical gentle, acoustic framework.
