Brian Is Excellent! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I'm Brian's fan because I think he is an excellent singer and musically talented as well. He has a distinct and soothing voice, and wide vocal range. Imho, the music in this alum, although soothing and attractive, is not as creative as his first solo album. It's just the music trend I suppose. But Brian stands out anyway because he is adaptive and talented.

My favorite tracks are the regular and the English versions of Bullet which have nice rhythms and beats. Lock Me Up and Track 10 are my other 5 stars favorites, while One Step, Track 9 and Tears Run Dry are 4 stars. All these tracks suit Brian nicely. His voice never fails to attract my attention.

I wish continuing success to Brian! :)

BRIAN JOO MANIFOLD Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
I heard some preview of the songs and feel the songs of the album are really suits him well.
I think he might did some long searching and really dig into himself to the kind music that suits
him. I just really adore this album. He is so talented yet needs great and suitable songs to be
heard more powerful in vocal like this album. I really support him and all his solo career.

I'm ordering some for friends too. They also think that this album is really reflecting the real Brian
Joo himself.

Wish you all the best, Brian!!!

Excellent Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I really wasn't expecting this... This album is amazing. Brian's sound is so distinct in this album... it feels like "Brian"... like it's his territory and his cooped up energy has been fully released in the form of this amazing album.

Brian is from the US, so when it comes to his solo songs, he tends to have an American flavor, but still sticks to the Korean structure of music. This album has some really good pieces, so it's really hard to pick a favorite. The songs range from R&B ('Lock Me Up' and 'Erase') to club mixes ('Nae Yoja/My Girl' and 'Dreaming') to amazing acoustic ballads ('Noonmooli maleumyeon.../Tears Run Dry...') to hiphop/pop ('Move It' and 'Tell Me Baby') to trance/techtonic pop ('Bullet').

The bonus tracks with the english versions of some of the tracks are an added bonus (especially 'Tears Run Dry'). Usually, when asian artists try to make an English version of their songs, it feels a bit awkward, but Brian really pulls through with lyrics and overall feel. It feels like he thought these tracks out in english first. ^_^ If he is breaking into the American market, I will certainly look forward to it.

I love all the tracks. I have no complaints, but if I were to pick a track that really stood out from the rest, it would have to be 'Lock Me Up'. This track is one of the slower R&B tracks with a thumping technic beat and an amazing harmonized chorus. Also 'Chinguui Yojareul Saranghaene' feat Tablo is amazing. The bass is really good and the song flows so well. It has a similar backbeat to a famous american dance track, but its been remixed.

This album is really well thought out and I really would like to thank the composers and mixers of the actual music compositions. They really deserve some attention. Thank you, Brian, for this masterpiece!
