05. Take It Slow
06. 사탕 (Candy)

01. Ice Cream Cake

I can't say it enough: I love this track. The layering is insane and I don't know if they'll be able to pull off the harmonizing live, but the studio version is amazing. It's creepy but poppy but spunky but sweet? Basically, I fell in love with this song the second I heard the chorus.

02. Automatic

This song took me two or three listens to get into it, but I am so glad that they promoted this. It really shows a different side of them (similar to Be Natural) and highlights their vocals. The styling in this video is atrocious in my opinion, but overall I like this track.

03. Somethin' Kinda Crazy

This track isn't really anything special but I like the beat. Its just a little too annoying to be good background music and not exciting enough listen to to get pumped up. Probably not ever going to listen to this again.

04. Stupid Cupid

It has the same attitude of Miss A's Goodbye Baby and I dig it. My head was bopping the second the beat kicked in. There is a little too much going on in the music for my taste but so far this is my second favorite song after Ice Cream Cake.

05. Take It Slow

Ah, old school bubble gum pop. Got to love it. This definitely was a Backstreet Boys song in a former life. Not bad but nothing special.

06. 사탕 (Candy)

Yooo auto-tune! I actually don't hate the intro? Especially because the producers chill out with the stupid electronic sounds and let the girls just sing. This has got to be the 3rd best song on the album?
