브라운아이드걸스 2집 앨범 “떠나라 미스김” 발매
1집 앨범과 프로젝트 앨범의 활동을 통해‘다가와서’/‘세컨드’(1집),‘Hold The Line’(조PD),‘The Day’/‘정’(씨야), ‘Must Have Love’(SG워너비) 등 2006년 한해 많은 화제를 일으키며 연속해서 히트곡을 발표했던 브라운아이드걸스가 9월 6일 정규 2집 앨범을 발표한다.
타이틀곡인 ‘너에게 속았다’는 완전히 새로운 스타일의 곡이다. 인트로에서 부터 시작되는 화려한 스트링과 브라스 섹션은 POP 음악이 전성기를 누리던 70~80년대의 소울적인 느낌을 강하게 전해준다. 이어서 시작되는 미료의 래핑은 간주에서의 랩과 함께 이 곡을 훨씬 더 Stylish하게 색칠해주고 있다. Groove한 베이스와 Funky한 기타위에서 펼쳐지는 브라운아이드걸스의 노래는 그녀들의 가창력이 얼마나 대단하지 잘 보여준다. 가사 또한 사랑에 슬퍼하는 요즘 젊은 여성들의 심리를 솔직하면서도 매우 슬프게 표현해서 우리에게 많은 공감을 준다.
2집 발표에 앞서 미리 여름 시즌에 어울리는 흥겨운 업템포의 “오아시스”라는 곡으로 디지털싱글 앨범을 발표하여 많은 사랑을 받으며 다양한 음악적 스타일 제시했던 브라운아이드걸스는 이번 활동을 통해 기존의 하이브리드한 음악 스타일을 더욱 발전시켜 대중적인 멜로디와 리듬을 바탕으로 R&B, Soul, Hip-Hop 장르의 장점을 취합한 브라운아이드걸스 스타일의 음악을 완성시켜갈 것으로 기대된다.

Next to Ji Eun's "Rain", Brown Eyed Girls' second album was my most-anticipated album of the summer. Their first album took a few listens for me to fall in love with it and it eventually drew me to become a full-scale fan. I feel that this album will have the same effect with other music fans as well. Not to say that this isn't a great album - because IT IS - it's just a bit unconventional, when compared to popular recent releases in K-Pop. Having said that, I love the Brown Eyed Girls for demonstrating what it's like to make amazing albums.
With trumpets blazing and powerful voices blaring, the track "Namjaneun Eopda" introduces the album well. The feel of the song is a commemorative one, something like introducing a milestone, and is very nice start. Additionally it features YoungJi of another power-vocal group, the Bubble Sisters which adds more flavor to the song.
"Naega Utgo Isseoyo" is the second track and is a solo by Ga-in. Simply said, it's very beautiful but I can't help but wonder why she's singled out in the album, elected to merit a solo track. We already know that they're all amazing singers and having to showcase one member just didn't seem right.
With the third track, we're back to the mid-tempo pace. "Tteonara Miseugim" blends the girls' voices perfectly and is a definite highlight of this album. Mi-ro's rap is exceptional in this one. Her unique and raw rapping style cannot be missed and it is amazing how she flows seamlessly into the melody.
By "Sullae" (4th track), it becomes obvious that a see-saw approach of genres is written all-over this album. We're presented with a low-tempo track that can only be described as angelic. The harmony is outstanding and Je-ah totally owns the song with her amazing voice in this title's hook. This is my favorite track of the bunch and you'd have to hear the song for yourself as my words can do it no justice.
With "Neoege Sogatda" we're back into a mid-tempo pace with a bit of jazzy flavor from the intro song. This is one lesser tracks of the album, which is saved by Mi-ro's rapping prowess and excellent vocal control of the group.
"Hapirimyeon" is another gorgeous ballad. What I liked most about this song was the valiant expression of a single feeling, through four unique voices. Very powerful, very emotional, and an excellent song indeed.
With "Oasis", BEG shies away slightly from their comfort zone, moving into uncharted waters of a Summer-y stylized track. I felt that this was a bit of a risk for them as this did not readily fit their image. So many have failed transitioning over into different genres due to this but I think they pulled it off quite well. In fact, it was a big hit, and continues to rank up in the charts today. I witnessed an interview where the Brown Eyed Girls were asked about what they felt about this change of pace. Admittedly, they were a bit concerned of how the public would react. They stated that they gained much confidence with Lee Jae-hoon (from the group Cool) on board. I thought that this was a very smart move to collaborate with a seasoned veteran, and helped Oasis become the accomplishment that it is today.
"Nunbusige Joheun Nal" is a very sweet ballad, which is just perfect in every way. A very mellow track where each one of the members shines, the blending is magnificent and is one of the best ballads I've heard yet from 2007. In my opinion, this is where our ladies excel the most and Im just enthralled whenever I come across each one of these gems.
The most unique composition of this album goes to the ninth track entitled "Triangle". It's this kind of creativity and musical mastery that puts BEG above everyone else. The successful fusion of folk-pop and rap is just astounding and I can honestly say that I've never heard any other mainstream K-Pop song that resembles this. Triangle is an excellent track that'd certainly be remembered for a long time.
"Choemyeon" picks up where the eighth track left off - it's an even more delicate and soothing ballad. Its beauty shines not because of the display of vocal range, but the melody and the beautiful instrumentation. Its effect on the listener is similar to what one would experience listening to Lee Soo Young's classic hits.
Track 11, "Naekkeoya" switches the album's gears back into pop mode and is a refreshing track in its own right. Another successful crossover from the beloved BEG. With a funky delivery, and quite a catchy-beat, this is just a fun song to play that has the power to uplifts one's spirits in any given day.
I love how we're given a beautiful sample of true Brown Eyed Girls acappella in the first few minutes of "How Could I Love You?" (Track #12). The orchestral instruments come in shortly and the closing vocal track is upon us. A delightful end to a spectacular, diversified, and well-performed second album.
In conclusion, the wait was well-worth it and I was extremely pleased with the Brown Eyed Girls second effort. This album is an awesome pickup for anyone and is highly recommended. I guarantee that this will not be one of your music albums that just picks up dust through time.
