{REVIEW} B.A.P Stop It single album

Ah the never ending comeback rookies that are B.A.P. Best rookies of the year in my opinion. I admire their tenacity but sadly the tenacity in their songs reduced majorly. Maybe its a good thing so as to not be repetitive. This album, Stop It, has three songs that all go retro and that gives nostalgia to folks like me who grew up with late 80's and 90s music. Its the only album where the concept was used in all songs.

Stop It (3rd Single Album)

1. Yes Sir
2. Stop It 
3. Happy Birthday

We begin with the intro song "Yes Sir" which is an old school hip hop song with B.A.P's signature whistle and it begins with an alien radio signal sound then starts the song with Bang's shoutout "To all my Baby yes sir" that just makes you feel giddy inside. Then it gets into the chorus and loses me with Daehyun's engrish and yelling. I love Daehyun's voice but i honestly sometimes wish for the muzzle he had in Tadah! Its B.A.P. The belting worked in Warrior and Power but hes overdoing it lately.

Next song is Stop It which begins with some screaming a whistle note which draws on while Zelo and Bang are rapping.The song has a 90's boy band feel with old school hip hop instances which i love. I admit when i first heard it i hated it only because we we're trolled with a hip hop teaser (which turned out to be Yes sir) and ended up with Crash 2.0 which i thought would have been a one-time thing for B.A.P. Add the fact that the video was so cheesy. Begin the year as warriors and end it as overly cute devils? No Bang. No. But i loved it when i listened to it without the video and once i saw them have fun on stage and still give a great performance made me give them a pass on the aegyo. Jongup sounds so cute but randomly the highlight for me is Himchans " hwa jeom naejima" especially in the live performance. Hopefully next album he's not just a hypeman. While I love the song and its catchiness, its not a song i can replay if i have headphones as it can get noisy with its occasional high notes. Ok enough salt on Daehyun :-)

They saved the best for last with the R&B ballad Happy Birthday. Its a very sweet love song which i can bet money on my guess that many more noona fans were created after Zelo said "I will kiss you baby". The chorus has great harmonies reminiscent of 90's R&B groups especially with the echo ad libs that are in the verses. I love the water drop sounds i hear in the song which made me think of BigBang's 'I Dont Understand' that used the drop as part of the beat which was carried into the thunderstorm towards the middle of the song and ended with rainfall or MBLAQs 'Cry' who used it more randomly(like this song did)but it was still a cool effect since the video is practically aqua galore with tears, an awesome underwater scene, singing on a water stage and dancing in the rain. Though with Happy Birthday its a little too random since there's nothing relating to it but it does add something different to the basic r&b instrumental. And as Jongup gets more lines you realize how nice and sweet his voice actually is. Sadly Hypeman Him only talked for two lines and then he was forgotten. Its annoying because i love his rough deep voice. Bangs voice is more smooth and slightly deeper so they wouldn't end up being too similar if they gave him more lines. In fact next album Himchan should rap and Bang should sing since he has a great tone singing. Well hopefully before that they get a nice well deserved vacation as much as they've promoted. Overall love the album and its concept. Though not my fave from them since i loved their aggressive, meaningful songs better its still different from alot of mainstream music (who are stuck on electronic dance music) and definitely something that's worth listening to and even passing along.

Howdy this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have
to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
