애프터스쿨(After School) 첫 싱글 [NEW SCHOOLGIRL]

데뷔 초부터 엄청난 이슈와 화제를 몰고 있는 애프터스쿨(After School)의 첫 번째 싱글 앨범이 드디어 출시했다. 각종 포털 사이트에 멤버 5명의 각자 다른 매력의 이미지와 퍼포먼스가 엄청난 화제를 불러 일으켜 네티즌들의 큰 관심을 한 몸에 받았다.

애프터스쿨(After School) 첫 번째 싱글 앨범 1번 트랙에 수록된 'Play Girlz'는 애프터스쿨의 강한 이미지를 보여주는 파워풀한 비트의 힙합 곡이다. 2번 트랙에 수록된 타이틀곡 'AH'는 2008년 최고 히트곡인 "미쳤어", "어쩌다"를 작사, 작곡, 편곡한 용감한형제가 총 프로듀서를 맡아 작업을 하였고 Electric HipHop+Powerful한 Dance를 기반으로 최근 미국에서 유행하고 있는 최신 Trend를 반영하였다. 세련되고 고급스러운 이미지의 복고풍 사운드의 힙합 곡으로서 현재 활동하고 있는 여성 그룹들과 차별화 된 파워풀하고 악동적인 이미지를 가진 푸시캣돌스를 연상케하는 반복적인 가사와 멜로디가 매력적인 중독성이 아주 강한 곡이다.

2년여 동안 트레이닝을 받으며 철저히 준비한 애프터스쿨은 외모 못지 않은 실력을 갖추고 있어 화려하고 강한 퍼포먼스를 선보일 예정이다. 손담비에 이어, 플레디스와 용감한형제의 두 번째 야심작 애프터스쿨은 이미 데뷔전부터 음악 팬들의 관심을 한몸에 받고 있으며, 멤버 다섯명 각각의 매력에 빠져 애프터스쿨 열풍에 빠지기를 기대해본다.

i love this group Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I can't usually find a good kpop artist to really get into. After School has won me over! This album is awesome! It has dance songs. If you love dance music, then this cd is for you! I think everyone should try out this group. They also have two other digital singles out: "Diva" and "Dream Girl" Diva is my favorite. I'm not that into Dream girl yet. This is my favorite kpop group ever. Keep on making music A.S!

love from the states!

Oh yeah "Ah" is a must have! It's so awesome and my favorite of theirs.

Good First Debut ,BUT; Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Yes ,after school has a good sound and seem good ,But; how many boy and girl singers Can Korea ,keep pumping out ??? 1 of my relatives had a article from her Korean newspaper,last week stating that the music shows on kbs ,mbc and sbs are cutting back on how long each performer can be on , GOOD; so we can see less of the pretty boy bands like; Super Junior and these other wanna be talentless groups ,with Rapping ballads , as you allready know, After School has the same record label as Son Dam-Bi ,whom i feel should get more air time and credit than she gets .my only prob. with A.S. as well as many girl groups they are starting to sound the same ,even though i love the Wonder Girls, Girls Gen.,Kara ,etc..And how many play an instrument ???
What we ,the fans need are Albums that last and have a mix of good music and good vocals ,NOTE;the word ALBUM not singles,every 4 to 6 months.i really like this music ,but i hope we don't get a 100 same sounding groups or singers in Korea, i have a serious collection of Asian pop (not hip-hop) and have been to many live shows; BoA ,Faye Wong, to name a few ,but really ;the sounds are not changing..

Impressive But Short Debut Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Disc Time : [10’48 mins]

With Korean girl band pop-lets taking over the world, After School add yet another 5 piece with a 4 track mini album debut, to whet appetites and increase already filled K-gurls music collection shelf spaces.

A.S are certainly a no nonsense assembly, looking ready to rock n roll and sounding like a mega mix of Wonder Girls, Brown Eyed Girls and Kara. But to what I have read, AS are more influenced by the Pussycat Dolls as their main template model and certainly have similar stage energy.

Sound wise there’s certainly a Wonder Girls vibe and also nods towards Brown Eyed Girls. In fact I knew I had heard that sound sample somewhere that starts off all 4 A.S. songs here, and I realized that it was used on “How” from BEG’s last CD “My Style”. But nods, appreciations and influences apart, A.S. do showcase a good solid sound set here. The mini album is short, though, with the first intro song “Play Girlz” only clocking a mere [1’30 mins], and no doubt a teaser version edit, hinting at a more complete version to come on a future album (or a New School Girl V2 “Teacher’s Pet” remix CD). The song is strong and moodily rhythmic with a good electronic melody. Second track “Ah” is the sweet and bouncy party number that’s pretty well the single here I thought. The third track “Bad Guy”, though, is more edgy with some serious vocal rap and quite dark lyrics about revenge. I’d imagine a song influenced more by “Oldboy” director Park Chan Wook than the Pussycat Dolls. Not sure about this one, but the musics okay. The fourth track closes with an instrumental version of “Ah”.

The booklet is excellent. You may get a modest navy blue card cover with a school blazer logo, but this ‘ordinary’ front piece is transformed into a full blown 18 paged glossy booklet with full page and colorful AS photos inside when opened.

Overall, a good solid ‘taster’ CD from A.S. who seem quiet the powerful girl band to hit the sound studios and stage, and I imagine destined to be popular with the best yet to come. They’re surely to be amongst fundamental K-girl wants lists, by their future releases.

So, you’ll love the songs and the photo booklet here. :)
But, you might be a bit niggled by the shortness of it all, with only 2 full songs to chew at. :(
But its a good short. Roll on the debut album, right? Although I’ve just read that Ga-hee, who was once BoA’s backing dancer, could also have a solo career.
