In light of all the recent comebacks of the Kpop industry, Got7’s comeback has been one of the best ones I have seen this year by far. With their title track “Fly”, Got7’s album “Flight Log: Departure” contains tasty R&B tracks that show the boys’ potential as a group.
In this album, there are 7 tracks in the digital download and 8 tracks in the physical copy.
- See The Light
- Beggin On My Knees
- Something Good
- Home Run (Physical Album)
Keep in mind “Home Run” will be released digitally eventually sometime in April, 2016.
Being a Got7 fangirl, it was hard to narrow down my favorite of the bunch listed. But in the end I decided that my top tracks were: Fly, Something Good, and Home Run.
“Fly” is their title song of the album. By far it’s one of my favorite Got7 songs to date. I love how mature it sounds compared to their previous hits. The production is great and the R&B sound has hints of elements of electronica. Hearing my favorite group member, JB, sing in English was also that made me super happy!!! Everyone got equal parts in the song and some members surprised me with their lines. With this song, the music video itself was amazing and so was the choreography. This song also took home the gold in music award shows. They won first place with “Fly” in Mnet’s comeback stage and on Ingikayo (various music competition shows in Korea). There are more to come but these were the only award shows, that they won, I could think of on the top of my head.
“Something Good” was definitely something good to my ears (bad pun I know…). But in all seriousness I really love the bubbly feel this song gave off. The piano and synths made it so cheery and cute. Youngjae’s vocals really stood out in this song to me out of everyone else. It fits his range really well and he blended well with JB’s voice as well.
“Home Run” is a more exclusive track due to it being only limited to physical copies of the album. This is a song that my favorite, JB, wrote. Despite the fact that my favorite in the group wrote this song, I genuinely liked the tune. The synths were catchy and cheery, similar to “Something Good.” I liked the melody line and the upbeat tempo this song had. Everyone had equal parts and I thoroughly enjoyed JB’s voice during the chorus.
This album definitely showed off the group’s potential for a more mature sound compared to their older hits such as “Just Right” and “A”. Out of the 2016 comebacks I personally choose Got7 due to how much their new sound took me by surprise. Got7’s R&B sound has changed from 2014 and has shaped into a sound that is even more catchy than before. If you end up checking out Got7 and like what you hear, check out more of JYP Entertainment’s other groups.
