We are doing things a little differently this time, meaning instead of spending ages arguing over who gets to review this album (we both love BESTie so much!!!!) it was decided we would just do the review together, so lets get started ^^

Tracklist

1. Excuse Me
2. Hush Baby
3. Single Bed
4. I'm So Fine (Feat. Almeng)
5. On Such a Day
6. Excuse Me (Instrumental)

MattK95's Review

From the moment this song started I knew I was going to adore it, and I was totally right, I've loved BESTie for quite a while (thanks to my darling little sister...jiggzy19), so I'm so happy that this song was able to gain them more recognition. The use of Saxophone in this song (I'm pretty sure it's a Saxophone XD) is absolutely genius. Their vocals are 100% on point, especially U-ji's high notes, they absolutely melt me!!! The depth this song has is absolutely incredible as well :)
This is definitely one of my favorite songs this year ^-^

jiggzy19's Review

The first thing that grabbed my attention was the Saxophone (I have a thing for that instrument :3) Then U-ji's voice came in and turned an awesome intro into the perfect one, it did for me anyway :)
I think the way they layered this song was very well done, there were no points in it where I started to feel bored of the song, or felt that it was lacking in any way. I love it just the way it is, and I wouldn't change any single part of it even if I could... I loved it so much I bought the album without listening to any of the other songs first, do I regret it? Not in the least :D

MattK95's Review

So with this song, they have chosen the perfect song to follow on from Excuse Me, still keeping the similar pace, whilst still bringing the tone down ever so slightly, almost wetting your appetite for the rest of the album. As always all the girls are brilliant in their vocals and Da Hye keeping it real with her awesome raps ^^ I actually find myself cooking to this song quite often XD

This is such an easy song for me to listen to, it was the perfect song to follow up Excuse Me, but also taking it down a notch, but at the same time keeping it fun, and totally making me want to dance ^^ The way this song was put together was very good, but I think Excuse Me was put together just a little bit better :)

BESTie are such great singers!! like seriously they are so good. This song reminds me of something...but I cant figure out what it is :/ That being said it's still an incredible song, that I absolutely love!!! The mix of the instruments and their voices is totally Daebak ^^ One of those songs that pulls you in and doesn't let go until you feel all the same emotions they are feeling :)

jiggzy19's Review

For me personally, I think his song showcased all the members vocals individually without throwing only U-ji to the front. I found that really refreshing, and it made me love this song even more ^^ I usually find myself humming this song at random points throughout the day. It is probably the song that sticks with me the most out of all the songs on this album! Totally Dae to the Bak!!!!

MattK95's Review

So I feel that this song could easily have been the single for their comeback, it's so fun and upbeat, the first time I heard it I repeated the song about five times before moving on to the rest of the album...XD The combination of BESTie and Almeng is absolutely freakin genius, whoever suggested this gets a Kookie!!! (Or at least gets a Cookie XD) I can't think of the rapper from Almengs name, but her rap in this song is totally on point ^^ And I love the instruments they used, the drums and whistles totally make this sound like a cheer leading song, and there is nothing wrong with that :3 Total jam, I love it to bits :)

jiggzy19's Review

This song only has one thing that annoys me, other than that, I love the whole thing... It's the whistle breakdown that annoys me, I feel like ripping the whistle out of whoever is blowing it's mouth and slapping them across the face, (I really hate whistles...) other than that I feel this whole song is amazing!!! Especially the girl from Almeng's rap. I love the part where she raps in that sort of laid back and relaxed style, that totally says I'm way better than you, and I totally know it! (She's so darn awesome^^)

MattK95's Review

As much as I love the upbeat side of BEStie This song is probably my favourite on the album, I love the raw emotion they put into this song. I mean seriously, they are definitely trying to harvest my tears... and they are succeeding T-T I feel like the perfect atmosphere for listening to this song, is during a rainy afternoon in late Autumn or early Winter... XD yes I think stuff like that about songs that I really like. Both the music and the vocals of this song are incredible, but I really feel that BESTie out-shined the music in this song. There isn't much more to say other than I love this to bits ^-^

jiggzy19's Review

Yes I love fast paced songs, but I do have to say that I really, really love slow ballads that showcase emotions so well. BESTie really did a fantastic job on this song, I think they did a better job bringing their emotions to the forefront in this song, than they did in "Single Bed" :)
It's generally a pretty simple song, placing the focus more on their voices than on the music, which gives the song a very natural feeling which I adore^^

MattK95's Review

Not much to say about this, other than, even without BESTie adding the melodious sounds of their vocal cords, I still really love this song, the layering of the different instruments is brilliant, totally music to my ears... literally XD

jiggzy19's Review

I don't really listen to the instrumental songs on albums very often, but this song is the one exception so far :D I use this an alarm to help me wake up in the mornings, and I feel it would be a totally awesome ringtone^^
