Step It Up Now!

카라(KARA) 정규 3집 “STEP”발매
“STEP”으로 새롭게 인기 몰이에 나선 인기그룹 카라

한류스타 카라가 새 앨범으로 국내에 컴백한다.

카라가 다음달 6일 정규 3집 음원과 음반을 공개하고 국내 활동에 나선다. 지난 해 미니4집 [점핑JUMPING] 이후 10개월 만에 전격 공개하는 새 앨범이라 카라의 국내컴백만을 기다려온 많은 팬들에게 더욱 큰 궁금증을 유발하고 있다.

일본에서 큰 성공을 거둔 카라는 바쁜 일본활동에도 불구하고 국내에서 새로운 앨범의 신곡을 선보일 무대 준비에 여념이 없다.

타이틀곡으로 선정된 “STEP” 은 한재호,김승수 콤비 스윗튠의 곡으로 Rock&Electronica가 절묘하게 접목된 강력하고 세련된 신스 팝 넘버이다. 리듬을 자유자재로 사용하면서도 절제도 적절히 되어있는 테마사운드는 최신 트랜드를 주도할 것으로 기대되고 있다. 화사한 색감이 눈앞에서 펼쳐지는 듯 즐겁고도 강렬한 사운드 안에서 한층 성숙해진 카라의 다섯 목소리가 반가운 곡이다.

또한 적지 않은 기간 활동하며 다져진 원숙함과 그 동안 보여주지 못했던 멤버들의 숨은 노력이 빛을 발하며 카라의 전매특허와도 같은 달콤한 음색으로 어떤 어려움이라도 이겨내고 앞으로 나아가자며 손짓하는, 기분 좋은 "카라표 팝"이다.

한편, 카라는 음반 발매 후 추석이 지난 내달 중순 본격적인 방송 활동에도 돌입할 계획이다.

Step-Up! (not the movie!) Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Step album impacts every K-Pop lover out there, and even me!

Step is a more poppish K-Pop song you'll ever hear, moves your blood with hype! A combination of church synth tunes and 90's pop into one.

Strawberry reminds me of Honey and Rock You, very 70's type of mellow music which you have to play repeatedly. My Boy tells you about a delight for her boy she wants to go with! Dear Kamilia is not so, but just as a similar tune and meaning compared to Ima, Okuritai Arigatou in their Japanese version of the song.

For those who still want to cherish the very fruitful KARA comeback, this certified man, certified girl lover, certified Kamilia recommends you this CD!

My Boy Steppin' it Up! Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
Quite good full-length release. I purchased both Normal and Special Edit. versions.

Step is a great dance title track that is very easy to listen to, and quite easily caught in the slightly pop-rock feel. The choreography is also nice.

Rider and '따라와' are not-as-good dance tracks, and I must say KARA better stick up with their trade mark sweet style than anything.

Strawberry and DATE(MY BOY) are just another KARA-marked tracks of sweet and loving feeling, and they delight my ears :)

Both the Intro and Outro tracks are definitely doing their works so well, with their electronic sound containing specific traits of the whole album in it :)

'나는..(ing)' (Acoustic Ver.) and '내 마음을 담아서(Dear Kamilia)' are sweet bllads that showed the girls' vocals, and is very soothing :)

Both versions have the same tracklist, but the booklets are little different. B, about the special version, half is pictures of the girls dressed up in colorful outfits wearing colorful makeups posing in colorful spaces. And the other half is them in the BTSs of Step MV. They bring a very lively and sweet, friendly impression. So basically I prefer this version.

While the Special version's album cover is black, the poster has a dark feeling with black background and the dark-colored CD.

Not quite recommended, but good nontheless :)

A, about the normal version, half is pictures of the girls dressed up in colorful outfits wearing colorful makeups posing in colorful spaces. And the other half is them dressed up in more "elegant", darker outfits with dark makeups and blinking jewelries. I think the booklet stands out just because of the girls' beautiful appearance and nothing more :3

While the Normal version's album cover is yellow, the poster has a light feeling with white background and the light-colored CD.

Not quite recommended, but good nontheless :)

One for the fans Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Prior to purchasing this I was a fan of the KARA I had heard, the big titles (Step, Jumping, Lupin, MR, etc), though this show that KARA can also produce music that is different to the mainstreamed, mass produced kpop.
There has obviously been a fair bit of thought into the order of the tracks, which is much appreciated, though it has significantly less impact as a piece if you shuffle.
This is a very bright album, with the darker style (see Lupin) not making a real appearance. So if you don't feel peppy, this may grate slightly.
I bought the standard edition, though now I wish I had gotten the Special Edition, one of my friends has it and it is worth the extra dollar for the prettier cover and different photos. The pictures in the Standard ed. are quite nice and well set out, though, what can I say, I am a quantity girl!
KARA have done well and produced a good album. Some songs deserve a second listen, even if you hate them at first, though the instrumental of Step can be skipped all together...there is only so many times you can listen to the same couple of bars repeating with an occasional coda, before you go insane. It does however highlight their talent that the most painful backing track can be made into a #1.

Thanks ^^ Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
@Princess And Soldier Of Silence: thank you for replying me ^^ I know that Edition means that they are korean tracks, but yesasia also added Version, and that makes me unsure... I've ask them on twitter and they said that to me xD I've more than 50 cds, I'm used to buy online and I'm also lucky enough to have a dvd lector that reads all regions, but sometimes descriptions are so misleading, you know... It's better to be careful ;D
