Quite the solid collection of songs. “Yestoday” gives me old school hip-hop vibes. “Black on Black” is great too, I love how hard it goes. The older tracks definitely feel like an afterthought, but it’s nice to have them on a physical release finally, so I’ll let it slide this time.
My biggest complaint is the sequencing, especially after the newer tracks. “Timeless” is utterly jarring after “Black on Black”. If anything, “The 7th Sense” should have been slotted after “Black on Black” with “Timeless” tossed towards the end. Also both versions of “Without You” being back to back is a choice. I would have also made the extended version of “Yestoday” the regular version and relabeled the shorter version as a radio edit and made that the digital exclusive.
We’re also getting music videos for “Yestoday” and “Black to Black” as confirmed via their site.
I’m excited where they all go from here and the additional units SM have planned for us. I’m expecting to see more Jungwoo, Kun, Lucas and Ten in the future.
