YesAsia Editorial Description

Wondering why 8eight, the popular trio band who rose to fame after grabbing the Grand Prix prize from Show Survival, named their sophomore album Infinity? The explanation is simple: just turn the infinity symbol by 90 degrees and you will see the number 8. Without a doubt, "unique" is their middle name and certainly how these three talents got their break in an industry inundated with newbies every year is in itself quite unique as well. The group consisting of leader Lee Hyun, Baek Chan, and sole female member Joo Hee, signed up for Show Survival, MBC's music variety competition where newcomers like V.O.S, Super Kid, and Sweet Sorrow competed against one other for the ultimate grand prize. 8eight scooped the top honor and soon the group's popularity was thrust to newfound heights.

The principal track Let Me Go (Track 1) features Jo PD, a popular singer/songwriter and one of K-pop's most reputable producers. Sprinkling some lighthearted beats into the melancholic tune, the song has a familiar ring similar to the group's debut hit Sarangeul Ilgo Nan Noraehane ("Forget About Love And Sing"). Other noteworthy participants include Lexy who reels out her rap performance with charm and Big Mama's Min Hye who jams with 8eight in a beautiful duet number Ot gi seul jap go seo ("Holding Onto The Collar" - Track 10).

쇼바이벌 우승에 빛나는 실력파 그룹 8에이트가 2집 “INFINITY(인피니티, 무한대)”를 들고 돌아온다! “INFINITY(인피니티, 무한대)”는 무한대 기호 인피니티를 바로 세우면 숫자 8이 된다는 그룹명의 진정한 의미. 팀의 가능성이 2집에서는 더욱 더 무한대로 펼쳐진다라는 뜻을 담고 있다. 타이틀곡 “Let Me Go”에 참여한 조PD는 1위 메이커. 후배가수 8에이트의 이별이야기에 느긋하게 선배로서 조언하는 형님역할을 맡았고 최고의 여성 래퍼 렉시가 멋진 래핑을 2007 하반기 가장 성공적인 레코드를 기록한 빅마마가 이현과 아름다운 듀엣을 선사한다. 타이틀곡 “LET ME GO”는 8EIGHT만의 미묘한 감수성을 전달했던 전작”사랑을 잃고 난 노래하네”의 우수 어린 느낌에 경쾌한 비트가 가미되었다. 다가오는 봄에 듣기 좋은 즐겁고 위트 있는 펑키 트랙으로 밴드 8EIGHT이 지향하는 색깔을 가장 잘 표현하고 있다.

Surprisingly un-cliche for a Korean pop-trio album Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
I usually have low expectations for yet another Korean pop band, because all their tunes sound the same. However, this particular album caught my attention (I am an avid music listener from all genres) and I wonder if it was produced by a non-Korean producer. It was refreshingly innovative and melodic. One song in particular "sometin' sometin'" was similar to Robin Thicke/Justin Timberlake's high pitched male voice singing sweetly like honey to an R&B song. It was beautiful.

Very good album, I am still surprised. I think Korean pop music is taking a change for the better.
