So... Teen Top revealed their new mini album today. The name of the album is "It's: Mini Album Vol. 2" and was produced by Brave Brothers. Yes, I know that not that long ago I was sooo excited to hear it but... well... It's really just ok, imho.
You be the judge:
1. Teen Top
2. 미치겠어 (Crazy)
3. Where's Ma Girl
4. Girl Friend
5. 미치겠어 (R&B Slow Mix)
6. 미치겠어 (Inst.)

What I like: The intro song, that's named after the group, is not bad. The rapping is adequate, there are no glaring errors in their usage of English, and the beat is dance-able even though it's something we've all heard before. CAP's English in Girl Friend in the beginning makes me cringe a bit. The rest of the song is ok, very sweet and boy band-ish and I can imagine 14 year old girls might really enjoy it.
What I dislike: Pretty much everything else. The backing tracks aren't new or exciting in any way, especially 미치겠어 (Crazy), which apparently is the cheesy techno version of Girl Friend. Also please, PLEASE stop with the excessive English in each song. I'm talking to you, CAP.
Sigh... I really like Teen Top quite a bit so this saddens me. They're cuties and usually have such fun and catchy songs with entertaining choreography. Their first mini album did pretty well so I was hoping for big things for them with this album. I think they could rival Infinite if they had the right material, but unfortunately these songs are not it. Personally I won't be downloading any of these songs on Itunes or anything like that, which is too bad. Hopefully they comeback strong in their promotions for this album with some really hot choreography that will blow people away.
I'll leave you with some "vintage" Teen Top so we can all remember how good they can be.
