JUS2 "FOCUS" Album Listening post

Listen to it on Spotify HERE

Here's also a thread (of single tweet translations) of JB and Yugyeom talking about JUS2 and the album (it's an interesting read):

The album's sooooo good you guys omg, this is nothing like they (or kpop imo) has showed us before and right up OP's alley

Senses and Love Talk are stand-out tracks for me and my favorites rn, they have that beat/style that I can't remember what it's called but you don't hear it in kpop almost at all and they do it so GOOD here holy shit.

I think the tracks sounds so good to me because they're not over-produced and in danger of sounding noisy but just enough stuff going on to make them interesting and catchy.

Jaebum's voice suits this style to a T. Yugyeom doesn't sound bad, he's just a little too nasally for my taste.

My ranking from best to last rn:

Love Talk
Focus On Me
Long Black
Drunk On You

Off topic, though is it really ever for you?

Did you see the pictures of JY showering and topless? Have they been around awhile and I just don't pay enough attention? I rather thought you'd have thirst post out. Or, do we think he got a body double?

It really is a cohensive, solid album!

The live stream is hopeless, a lot of ppl on my tl are complaining about it buffering so it must be on their end smh

this is so mf good! love talk is SOTY

this album, verse 2 and present: you are just *chef's kiss*
i hope they continue with this sound

Love Talk is that bitch. It takes me back to my clubbing days and I just wanna jam and move around when I listen to it.

The more charge they take in their own sound the better the end results are, I hope JYP(E) sees this and lets them do their thing seriously.

Yes JB, I too prefer if you weren't using your high pitch all the time, so I'm grateful for this album. it sounds very familiar in the sense it's similar to what they've released on Soundcloud, but yet different?

it brings me back to playing DJ Max, and damn did I love those songs while playing it. the 1st two tracks after Focus On Me were kinda forgettable, but the last 3 tracks made up for it! agreeing with comments above that Love Talk is that song.

also, OP I think the album is called Focus?

Oop ty for pointing it out, changed the title lol

Slow fucking claps. What the hell? I felt like this was going to good, but this is fantastic. Everything about this subunit is so we'll put together and cohesive from the album, to the mv and styling. GOT7 subunits remain superior in execution of a concept.

The MV MADE Focus on me but even just listening to the song without the MV it's still so good. But senses, touch and love talk are also amazing. I knew love talk was the yugyeom/effn without even looking at the credits.

JYP launch a fashion like just so this album can be the music

i'm very satisfied :> i knew i could trust jb to deliver once again and with yugyeom on board, well! they really did that heheh

first of all, focus on me grew on me (heh) in a matter of hours! it's become a top tier song on this album for me. and as expected, their choreo for it is so good! i'm seeing a few fancams on twitter and i love how they make their sharp moves work with this kind of song

ahh it's hard to do a ranking! drunk on you is exactly my kind of song and so is touch! idk if anyone saw that tweet but someone on twitter put touch over a clip of jinyoung in his new drama and with the lyrics and everything, it fits sooo well that touch is now my inofficial anthem for he is psychometric :') but even aside from that, touch would make a good soundtrack song, right? it kind of has that feel to it imo

senses reminds me of a few exo songs, like artifical love! :o idk exactly what genre that is? i think people on twitter said something about deep house? which i guess sounds true enough? senses in particular is sooo /jaebum/ hahahah it reminds me so much of the music he plays in the background whenever he's on vlive! as for love talk hmmm i like it overall but it reminds me too much of the kind of music that i grew up with in the mid-to-late-90s (partly thanks to my dad) lmfao like eurodance? anyway love talk is like a more chill and modern version of that and idk i can get into it omg

anyway long black is amazing!!!!!!!!! so happy i can always trust yugyeom to come through

That twitter thread has JB talking about how he wanted to lose weight, so he went from 73 to 68 kg and is thinking he should go to 65kg.

I object!

I don't use spotify so I'll have to go to youtube to give this album a listen. I hope I can rise about Yugyeom's voice.
yuujinchous 5th-Mar-2019 08:46 pm (UTC)
i really like what he said about how much effort he puts into making songs, about wanting to show off his lower register with this album and what he said about working hard because he wants his cats to live a comfortable life is super relatable too but yeah, i'm not sure what his hang-up about his weight is! i mean as long as he's happy with himself but still :(
apori 5th-Mar-2019 08:01 pm (UTC)
I can't listen until days from now whyyyyyyyyy.

OP and co getting my expectations up though.
dantethetaco 5th-Mar-2019 08:16 pm (UTC)
Finally had the time to listen to this. It's so good! I'm gonna play this a lot while studying/working. Goodbye lofi hip hop beats to study/relax to, you've been replaced! Touch, Senses and Love Talk are perfection.

So as of now JJ Project > Jus2 >>>>>> GOT7. I hope they choose to go with a sound closer to the sub-units for future Got7 comebacks.
yuujinchous 5th-Mar-2019 08:37 pm (UTC)
they went for a softer sound with you are after jjp had their comeback with tomorrow today and if they follow that pattern it seems like they will return with something sexier. bambam apparently said today that it's not long anymore until fans get to see got7 again but it made think because i really thought we were gonna cycle through all sub-units first before getting a group comeback :o who knows
nudrive 5th-Mar-2019 10:51 pm (UTC)
Touch is hands down my favourite rn.
Not a massive fan of drunk on you and love talk but they'll probably grow on me
goshipgurl 5th-Mar-2019 11:24 pm (UTC)
the entire album sounds like something you would hear at an h&m store.
they added f(x)'s 4 walls to the official h&m playlist, maybe we'll see one or two jus2 there as well

That is a great way to describe it lol

I heard One Shot, Two Shot in H&M last year, too.

i've been wating all day for theis to be on spotify... i wanted to listen to it at work
camouflagecat 6th-Mar-2019 05:19 am (UTC)
It's been on spotify since its release! It maybe doesn't show up when you search jus2 tho

Wait I'm confused the spotify link was already in the post lol

I like Senses the most.
snowphone 6th-Mar-2019 07:02 pm (UTC)
i'm still listening and working out my thoughts.

touch has grown on me even though i think it's kind of corny.

focus on me is defo my fave song.

i'm not in love with senses because i don't really like whatever genre that is.

drunk on you makes me wanna dance
kimbafierce 8th-Mar-2019 03:50 pm (UTC)
I was overly excited for Love Talk cuz everyone seems to love it, but it turned to be my least fav song.
But a sold mini nevertheless. I love Senses the most, it's soooo relaxing.
I don't like a single song from Got7 but their sub-units efforts deserve an A+
camouflagecat 8th-Mar-2019 05:43 pm (UTC)
Love Talk is funny, it's often either people's favorite song, or least favorite song. Maybe it has to do with some of them having to grow up listening to that kind of music and now they're tired of it? *eyesemoji*
