I’ve listened to Seventeen’s latest mini album precisely one time by means of. Sadly, their music is drifting farther from what I first fell in love with again in 2015. That is pure for any artist, and it’s superb how they proceed to (largely) self-produce so a few years after debut. Title monitor Tremendous has been pleasurable in matches and begins, however a number of jarring parts maintain me from totally embracing it. In the meantime, F*ck My Life passes by with out leaving a lot influence in any respect.
Regardless of bearing an provocative title, the tune itself is mid-tempo and therapeutic. Seventeen have mastered this type, however this isn’t one of many stronger examples of the template. A monitor like this wants killer melody to face out. As an alternative, F*ck My Life drags by with out hitting any memorable peaks or thrives. It’s fairly one-note all through, putting emphasis on vibe and sentiment.
There’s nothing offensive or terrible concerning the tune, however it wraps itself in a palette of lifeless grays. From vocal supply to its trudging tempo, F*ck My Life makes me really feel gradual and sleepy. The melodic construction and phrasing observe a good, repetitive format. Other than a couple of twists, almost all strains are of the identical size and cadence. I can perceive how this can be an asset given the character of the monitor, however it’s not an strategy I discover fascinating or evocative.
