Top Track: Ready Set Go
FInal Score: 5/ 10
Promotional Track ~
Meh, it's a decent track. It's far overshadowed by the MV, but it's an okay start to their career. The structure's pretty simple, very much the industry standard. It's catchy and has a nice beat, but it's nothing spectacular or attention grabbing. Ga-In's feature in the bridge felt entirely unnecessary, thrown in simply to have a BEG girl feature in the debut track of the "BEG Boys".
I give it a 4/10: energetic BGM.
Skirmish is solid, very edgy yet nice and smoothe. It's got a pretty simple structure, but that's all it needs. The almost-minimalist feel is actually pretty cool for a rap song. The bridge has this little sitting-on-a-beach bit in one of the backing synths that confused me, but hey, still a good track.
Hold On is great. The Engrish is interesting, but it's good enough to not be too distracting. It has great build and spatialization. The arpeggio motif transfers between instruments very well, building up the tension with ease. The ending's a bit too sudden, but still good.
Ready Set Go is fabulous. It's got a great pulse. It builds up and then drops out from under you, not to the point that you flounder, just enough to wake you up. The chorus is a bit meh, lyrically, but structurally it works perfectly. All of these track feel like they're going somewhere, but this is the only one that actually feels like it gets there.
I give them a 6/10: playlist material.
