I like how this song sort of gives you a mix of each of the songs to come on this album, a very steady and solid intro!!!
I score this intro 4/5 emoticon hearts

Intros are always annoying for one reason...they are too darn short, other than that, I absolutely love this!!! perfect little teaser for all the greatness that is to come on this album ^^

So I learned the words to this song...yep that's how much I love it. Every aspect of this song is brilliant, I love it so much ^^ I think it should be apparent to everyone at this point that Sung Kyu is super amazing!!!

It sounds like Sung Kyu is about to burst into tears while singing this, and yet like Matty I find it completely encouraging!!! The emotion is amazing!!!
I score this 4.5/5 emoticon hearts (The only reason I took half w heart off, is because it sounds slightly like he sneezes at a couple of points in this song, which kind of annoys me...)

How is this song both sad and uplifting at the same time??? Makes me feel two completely different emotions at the same time, kinda like I should be crying but instead feel empowered to keep going. This is one of my favourite songs currently, I listen to it at least twice daily lol! Sung Kyu is a total genius, and the emotion he puts into this song is absolutely amazing!!!!!!

I learned the lyrics to this song in one day XD I love how clear his Korean pronunciation is!
The way they put this song together is mind blowing, I just can't...like were they trying to kill all of Sung Kyu's fans when writing this song!

I bought this song, the moment I heard it. I love it soooooo much!!!
Actually this is one of my top 10 songs of 2015, another one of those songs I listen to multiple times a day. Musical perfection! It's also pretty cool that my Dad loves this song ^^

If this is the outcome of a collaboration between Sung Kyu and Tablo, then they need to do more of this more often!!! Like someone please make them an official duo already!!! When I first heard this song, I wasn't sure if I was going to like it...forgive me for doubting you Sung Kyu! Tablo's rap combined with Sung Kyu's distorted vocals is possibly the greatest musical accomplishment ever \(^-^)/...well not really...but kinda really :P

I know a lot of people were complaining about the audio effect on Sung Kyu's voice in this song, but honestly I think it's really awesome, and adds a totally unique vibe to this song, and let me just say how much I love Tablo, he is a freakin genius, so when these two work together the outcome is pure musical magic ^^ I don't know all that much about JW but if he had a part in this song then he must be totally awesome too :D

Perfect ending to an incredible album, whoever decided to put Sung Kyu and Park Younha's voices together needs to get a cookie, and a raise ^^ This song has such a sweet sound to it, I find it really refreshing and so easy to listen to.
I score this song 5/5 emoticon hearts...and a cookie :P

This song is so relaxing, it's both sweet, and almost a little melancholy at the same time, but only just slightly. Park Younha's vocals mix perfectly with Sung Kyu's this song is just perfect, there's no other way to put it.

Kontrol and Daydream were on repeat for more than two weeks for me. At this point, I dont think I need to mention how much I love SungGyu and his voice lol. I wasnt into Alive that much until recently. the lyrics to that song just did something to me. 27 is yet another product of amazingness from SungGyu. I love that little Tablo part in Daydream so much. Overall this album was a killer. Like literally, Ive lost count on how many times ive died listening to these songs lol Awesome review though!
I thought this album was good I just didn't like the amount of auto tune they used. He has a lovely voice so why hide it under all that?
@BluBear07 I can understand that, he does have an amazing voice, the auto tune is only for effect cause we all know he doesn't need it XD but hey it's not gonna work for everyone, and that's totally fine :)
His two solo albums are honestly my favorite kpop albums ever, with Tablo's solo coming in close second! I loved your reviewww :3
I just loved this album. I had beeb waiting for this and its just great. Currently waiting for another great album my bias will have. Having Younha and Tablo in his album got me excited. I just love this album ♡
