SM’s Station releases are sometimes forgettable little trifles, however at their finest they provide the prospect for the company’s artists to stretch their wings and file a tune that wouldn’t match on a typical idol album.
Hybrid is a gathering of two big voices. TVXQ’s Changmin is thought for his highly effective excessive notes, whereas Guckkasten’s Ha Hyunwoo has a deeper (however no much less commanding) tone. They’re a match made in vocal heaven and Hybrid presents 5 complete minutes of symphonic rock to showcase their abilities. It has related vitality to 90’s Okay-rock basic Lazenzca, Save Us. If you happen to would have informed me the late Shin Hae-chul had a hand on this, I’d most likely imagine you!
In the long run, the efficiency and manufacturing are extra compelling than the precise tune, however that’s not tremendous stunning. Hybrid is all concerning the drama, and it is aware of learn how to expertly construct to a satisfying climax. I want it supplied a extra sprightly tempo — both all through its construction or through a dynamic breakdown/bridge — however the guys’ efficiency retains issues attention-grabbing. If nothing else, I by no means anticipated to listen to spacey prog rock rising from a giant idol company. The ultimate minute of Hybrid goes off in a manner few Okay-pop tracks do, and that alone is well worth the value of admission.
