YesAsia Editorial Description

For their latest Japanese double A-side single, Kara offers two very different electronica tunes for their fans. Speed Up sees the girl showing off their sexy side with a seductive dance number, while Girls Power is a cheerful, upbeat tune that is closer to the girls' personas. Both songs will also be serving as theme songs of different ad campaigns.

This edition comes with a bonus DVD with two versions of the Girls Power music video and off shot footage from it.

Kara Getting Some Mirrors Edge? Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
If anything made sense to me it would be for high profilers Kara to promote a bit more for certain aspects of the computer game industry. Kara did the black Lupin image (which could befit stealth games like ‘Thief’) and I thought by Kara’s new ‘Speed Up’ video and its grungy downtown backdrop and seduction could be something from Yakuza (Yakuza Molls Kara? I did mean molls not, cough, dolls) or a fighting game setting. Well, maybe a sexy seduction sim then. But mainly I thought of Kara Gaming after seeing David Cage’s new game demonstration video ‘Kara’. As any other Kara fan seen David Cage’s fantastic PS3 demo video of the female android ‘Kara’ yet? Cuz if you haven't, go and watch it and wonder (five cloned android ‘Kara’ machines at the end of the video?) as its a remarkable animation (all achieved on a PS3) if you love computer games (specially Seung-yeon being a big gaming fan, right..LOL). Anyway to get back to a normal review, Kara’s ‘Speed Up/Girls Power’ as two dance electronic songs, which are more of the Kara sound fans know and love. The songs are favourably generic; ‘Speed Up’ a sultry dance for would be femme fatales and ‘Girls Power’ the Kara cute persona mode. ‘Speed Up’ is a sultry/moody feel and the video showing Kara’ seduction mode dark mirrors the ladies proper fun side on the more upbeat ‘Girls Power’ song/MV.

Both songs mirror each other to the obviously great divide of dark and light again; a sexual allurement slightly post apocalyptic theme for ‘Speed Up’ and a say it with flowers cute innocence salvation mode with ‘Girls Power’. Whatever the message though, beneath the image its still Kara as you love ‘em, and that’s all that really matters. The five ladies are certainly enjoying it all in the making of bits. ‘Speed Up’ does stick around in your head after listening, too, and the MV is well produced. It’s a sexy type, that’s a fact (what do the girls' mums think!). This jacket A version as both songs on the CD, but the DVD only features ‘Speed Up’ videos. They’re good though. You get two versions plus a making of which the latter also shows the full ‘Speed Up’ song as its being filmed. If you want the ‘Girls Power’ videos you should get the jacket B CD/DVD combo. I suppose the songs could have been called ‘Power Up’ and ‘Speed Girls’ if a video game theme is here (you can also put the 4 words another way, but I’m not going there), but hey, this is pop culture, this is lovely Kara, and this CD is all very game.
