BEAST’s sprinting that can’t be stopped!
The first official album [Fiction and Fact]
Selling out their first solo concert at scary speed, BEAST, who had made their spot as the strong forces in KPOP is returning with an official first album. Not just in Korea, but this is the comeback album that fans all over Asia have been waiting for. [Fiction and Fact]
The album intro song ‘The Fact’ is the song that leads a smooth introduction to the main track ‘Fiction’ and the deep emotions can be sensed from the song. Like the title many people don’t want to accept ‘The Fact’ of their breakup, the album moves straight into ‘Fiction’. ‘Fiction’ is different from the strong beat and sound that BEAST originally has and it is the type of a song with a focus on the melody and lyrics. The lyrics express the wanting to write a novel in order to display hardships as one faces realizing the pain of a breakup. This is heightened with an addictive piano riff making the song a sad story. Also, in order to express the overwhelming emotions of the song ‘Fiction’, BEAST had also included an orchestra version of the song.
The song ‘Back to You’ with an attractive rising melody is expected to receive a lot of love from the fans. Other the luxurious performance songs on the album, the pop ballad song ‘Calling You’ show off the colors of the member’s voices , ‘On the Day Rain Falls’ was actually recorded on a raining day so that the members can full express their young emotions, the song ‘You’ is fully of happiness. The song ‘Virus’ that encompasses Electronic Dubstep and Black R&B make the album even better to listen too.
In particular, since it is their first official album, many surprises can be found, including the song, ‘Freeze’ which has been written, composed, and edited my Yong Junhyung as a special gift to the fans. Also the ‘Lightless’ Unplugged version that had received hotly response from the fans had also been in included in the album adding even more value to it.
