YesAsia Editorial Description

After School has been busy over the past year with unit and solo releases and overseas activities, and now the entire group is back in action with the album Virgin. The fierce girl group sports chic and feminine spring looks for their first full-length album, which is also the first Korean release with fourth generation member E-Young. After School's exciting new title song Shampoo is composed by Japanese DJ/producer Daishi Dance, with lyrics by poet Won Tae Yeon. The album also features the Jung Ah and Raina solos, the R&B song Play ur Love (from Kahi, Jung Ah, Raina, and Nana), and 2011 newly recorded versions of their hits Bang!, "Because of You", and When I Fall. A "Pre-school Girl", believed to be a new upcoming member, features in the song Funky Man.

「‘After School’ The 1st Album ‘VIRGIN’」
5월, 지금까지 느껴보지 못한 사랑스러움과 페미닌한 감성을 담은 애프터스쿨이 정규앨범 ‘VIRGIN’을 들고 찾아온다. 모던하고 세련된 감성, 자신감 넘치는 태도와 독립적인 사고방식, 그리고 내면의 아름다움을 바로 보는 시선, 바로 애프터스쿨이 추구하는 모든 것을 음악으로 이야기 한다.

애프터스쿨의 첫 번째 정규앨범인 ‘VIRGIN’은 장준호, 송양하 등이 참여해 어느 곡 하나 타이틀 곡으로 손색 없을 정도로 앨범의 완성도를 높였다. 특히 타이틀곡인 ‘Shampoo’는 ‘최고’라는 수식어가 아깝지 않는 ‘그 남자’의 작사가 인 시인 원태연과, ‘하루하루’의 공동 프로듀서이자 일본 최고의 작곡가 다이시 댄스가 만나 섬세하고 감성적인 피아노 선율이 만나 최고의 곡 구성을 이끌어 냈으며, 애프터스쿨이 표현하는 부드러운 보컬과 파워풀한 랩이 환상적으로 어우러져 높은 관심이 기대되고 있다. 또한 장준호가 선사한 ‘Let’s Step up’는 정규 1집을 대표하는 intro곡으로 애프터스쿨 특유의 팀컬러가 잘 묻어나는 파워풀한 곡이다. 이외에도 Pre-school girl(예비 입학생)이 피처링에 참여한 색다른 분위기의 ‘펑키맨(Funky man)’, 애프터스쿨의 대표 보컬인 정아와 레이나의 솔로곡 ‘마이 벨(My bell)’과 ‘시간에 기대어’, 밝은 멜로디와는 대조적으로 이별에 대한 아픈 가사가 가희, 정아, 레이나, 나나의 감성적인 보이스와 만나 애절하고도 독특한 느낌을 전해주는 R&B곡 ‘Play ur love’ 등 다양한 느낌의 신곡 9곡과 싱글 수록곡 3곡까지 총 12곡으로 풍성하게 구성되어 있다.

Sorry JooYeon and Bekah D: Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Ah, drat it, I got JooYeon mixed up with Bekah on my last review (eh? Too much fizzy pop, I think..blush). Sorry you guys! D: I’m also sorry to hear that Bekah as left AS, but graphic design is a great new venture (the job I do..yippee), that could lead to various professions (TV/Movie graphics, web design, print etc). Bekah won’t get screaming fans and undergarments thrown at her as a graphic artist (I haven’t had that happen to me, anyway), but being young, she’s got a great opportunity for new horizons. Bless you Bekah, and great fortune with your new career (and come back to AS if ever you can)! As for AS, yeah, this type of band shift of personnel will happen for all sorts of reasons, but its part of the game anyway, and I’m sure fans won’t be disappointed with newer AS music projects. I too, though, thought After School’s first mini album pseudo school image had interesting clout, in that Pussycat Dolls way, and maybe a back to basics could be called for. I loved the AS follow ups, as the songs were very good, but the image was very irregular (great though!). If AS looked on stage how their original image looked on their "New Schoolgirl" mini album, they’d bring the house down live (trust me!). Probably even better now, in retrospect! But stay mellow AS fans (and anyone else who feels ‘blue’ over their k-pop heroes), you still have lots of cool stuff to come. Good to hear of a Uee solo album.

As for me to say something else regarding the “Virgin” album, what about a new DVD addition of the “Virgin” album featuring MVs and a Making Of concerning the really great photo shoot? Again, sorry JooYeon and Bekah...Ah!!!

Love AS’s Funky Virgin Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Although quite a wait for this AS full album release, it’s a great welcome to see it arrive at last! :D In the main, too, I’m happy with the release, and the songs “Virgin”, “Dream”, “Let’s Step Up” intro, “Funky Man” (hey, its fun!), “Play Ur Love” and the “When I Fall” re-recording are, for me, the best highlights! The dance song “Virgin” I found the most interesting! (A single of “Virgin” surly to come; maybe with new mixes?). Of the re-recorded songs, I found “When I Fall” the most satisfying, mainly due to it having a more different and fresher bodied sound to the original (more heavier and upbeat tempo). Nice! The other new recordings, “Bang” and “Because Of You” I found to be more like the originals (featuring original recording multi tracks), but both are excellent songs in themselves of course, so no big deal! “Bang!” is a very good song, kooky, sexy with lovely feely bit. I like the spunky and funky “Funky Man” (hey, its Lizzy! :D) as these off beat eccentricities suit AS for me. No doubt Raina’s solo on “Time To Lean On You” and Jung-A’s solo on “My Bell” are great, but the songs were a bit so-so for me. Still, more listens should change my mind. For future AS’s albums, why not more lyrics written by the 9 members about their personal passions (i.e. ‘no more war!’ or ‘my cat’s best friend is a fish’...or whatever they’d be?)

Packaging is great. I like the cover photos! (by Bekah's 'Don't Judge' tee, was is it the local church vicar who took the photos? :D). The album comes with an outer slipcase that includes a 40-page booklet of AS photos, an entrance picture of new member E-young and a photo card (one of the 9 members). Inside is a Digi-pack with similar cover to the slipcase (different photo) that houses the CD and more AS pictures on a foldout attached to the inner cover. For the photo card, you’ll have to collect more albums if you want the AS member of your choice, which personally I think is taking the biscuit, as you’re teased to buy duplicate albums, just to get these photo cards. It should be ALL 9 photo cards released in a limited edition, or at least 1 photo card with identification on the album packaging, so that you can buy the one you want. Anyway, I love “Virgin”, (nice one Kahi :D), its got a good collection of songs and very much an album I’d recommend. Obviously for AS fans, but also anyone into RnB, funky melodies and dance electro. I’d also recommend Kahi’s 1st solo mini album, especially the Taiwan version.
