I can imagine mid-2000s Corbin Blue singing this on a basketball court.

njxfjsjfshjhj i hate this bc i can totally see it. we all let corbin down tbh, he could've been the next big thing, but no... ppl chose zac efron 😷

Omg lmao he is so fine but these songs are never going to take off, the lyrics are so bad

Ikr, I know he writes and produces everything on his own and is his own boss but who greenlighted this? The lyrics are so bad... I know he's not a native speaker and working hard on studying English but why did he not let someone else proofread this.

from what i understand he wrote the eng ver with some western musicians, so... /shrug/
i like the chn ver better definitely

The album is so good. Don't know why this was chosen as the title track.
My favorites are Mapo Tofu, Hold On, Save You, Don't Let Me Go.
High quality release overall.

oh man, I am pretty indifferent to this endeavor, but I have to go listen to mapo tofu.

I'm not sure what was going on with the story but it was so pretty and I liked the song.
pseudo_shigure 19th-Oct-2018 04:17 pm (UTC)
what's cute is that usually in songs like these they'd say 'i'm the best u can't touch me' etc. but he said, if you try hard you can also be like me. awwwwwww...

also i'm convinced half of the reason he keeps getting mvs is bc he brings all the brand he endorse in the production. all these cost saving SM can't resist.

This is such a great album to be honest, Yixing did an amazing job, i just love the sultry electro RnB vibe of the whole album.

Namanana is such a bop and i loved the sci fi post apocalyptic aesthetics with the tarot (apparently the physical album contains tarot cards too) and egyptian motifs.
i think he sounds great in both the Chinese and English versions to be honest, i think Give Me A Chance might be one of the only track where i prefer the English version idk.

My favourite tracks were definitely Flavor, Lay U Down, Hold On, Save You and Give Me A Chance.



(PS: so now that Yixing released his album, it means we'll get to the EXO cb and my body is (not) ready; also the location where they'll do their showcase looks incredible i can't wait to see the videos))

Idk why anyone bothers with the English versions. Only listened to the Chinese and it's great. He's definitely got a sound of his own. Musically this is his most solid yet.
angela_derp_otp 19th-Oct-2018 05:43 pm (UTC)
This is the weakest song on the album imo
scionofawhisper 19th-Oct-2018 07:24 pm (UTC)
It's fun, I love that we are getting an English version, idc if the Chinese version is better, lmao, I'm here for this. Apparently he's also been studying English hard so, you go boi. :D
blck_ink 19th-Oct-2018 08:14 pm (UTC)
i love the line: you can't stop my story.

i especially loved the flute but the moment the brass kicked in it became too boppy for me. also because his vocals aren't that deep it can sound a bit cheesy. the mv is beautiful tho and i clearly need to listen to the rest of the album like everyine says.
vintage_boom 19th-Oct-2018 08:58 pm (UTC)
this is vastly improved by timing the chinese audio with the MV. i'm glad I did that on first viewing because this MV is sooo good. I really hope this is SM moving back into doing more worldbuilding in their videos (this and NCT's regular both did it so well).

I actually rly like the song when you don't understand the lyrics. so yay!
vintage_boom 19th-Oct-2018 11:07 pm (UTC)
oh I listened to the album finally and it's definitely his best work inspite of the cringe induced by the english lyrics. I prefer the chinese versions of everything.
antrea 19th-Oct-2018 11:04 pm (UTC)
I actually like the song a lot ?? I paid no attention to the lyrics lol. The MV was p extra - I burst out laughing when he was dancing on the cliff
Choreo looks cool tho!
lostintheechoes 19th-Oct-2018 11:52 pm (UTC)
it's slowly growing on me... i still hear...

JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, WHO? lolol
yxerin 20th-Oct-2018 11:22 am (UTC)
i'm so glad i checked out the chinese version of this bc the mv is budget and the instrumental is real interesting, but the english lyrics are just... lmfao. i kinda like the "don't you think about stopping cuz we're about to get rah rah rocking" line though, despite the cheesiness
ngl it does sounds like smth that would make it big in eurovision. the all-white suit looks gives me dima bilan vibes
kori_ya 20th-Oct-2018 04:01 pm (UTC)
I like this A LOT, and I don't mind the lyrics, as I hardly understand what he's saying anyway XD
kcaomei 21st-Oct-2018 04:56 am (UTC)
i like it! i mean i'll probably only listen to the chinese vers lol but it's a bop either way
