인피니트 2nd MINI ALBUM [EVOLUTION]

* 가요계의 최정상의 프로듀서 콤비 “한재호 김승수”의 역작! 타이틀곡 BTD(BEFORE THE DAWN)
* 브아걸의 ‘아브라다카브라’ 등을 연출한 국내 최고의 뮤직비디오 감독 “황수아”와 인피니트의 만남!
* 아이돌의 새 기준을 제시한 인피니트의 무한한 진화! 파격적이고 파워풀한 컴백 [EVOLUTION]!


“다시돌아와”, “She’s back” 으로 혜성같이 등장해 폭발적인 사랑을 받았던 초특급 신예 인피니트가 2011년 1월 두 번째 미니앨범인 [EVOLUTION]을 발매, 한층 강력하고 진화된 음악으로 돌아온다. 데뷔와 동시에 학생복 브랜드 엘리트의 모델로 발탁되고, 문화 연예대상 가요 10대 가수상을 수상하는 등 2010년 최고의 루키로 센세이셔널한 한 해를 보낸 인피니트는 100곡이 넘게 진행된 녹음 작업 중 5곡을 엄선하여 음악적, 대중적으로 더욱 성숙하고 완성도 높은 컴백을 예고하고 있다.

타이틀곡 BTD는 “비포 더 던(Before The Dawn)” 의 약자로 카라의 “미스터“, ”점핑”, ”프리티걸” 레인보우의 “마하”, ”A”등을 작곡한 한재호 김승수 황금콤비가 심혈을 기울인 역작. 어쿠스틱 악기와 전자악기가 하나로 믹스되어 비장함과 드라마틱한 느낌의 정점을 표현한 곡이다. 타이틀 곡 BTD의 뮤직비디오는 1집 ‘다시 돌아와’ 을 연출한 국내 최고의 뮤직비디오 감독인 황수아가 인피니트와 다시 한번 의기투합, 메가폰을 잡는다. 황수아 감독은 ‘아이유’의 “좋은날”, ‘브아걸’의 “아브라카다브라”을 비롯, ‘가인’ 주연의 감각적인 뮤직비디오로 화제를 모았던 “돌이킬 수 없는”, 나르샤 ”맘마미아” 뿐 아니라, 영화 “우리집에 왜 왔니”등을 연출하기도 한 유명한 영화감독이다. 이번 뮤직비디오는 동트기 전 마지막으로 널 잡겠다는 스토리에 느와르 형식 차용하여 고난이도의 액션신과 어둡고 비극적인 분위기를 극대화, 한층 더 강렬한 인피니트 7명 멤버들의 모습을 감상할 수 있다.

그 외 수록된 곡으로 한재호, 김승수 콤비의 감성적인 팝댄스 넘버 ‘CAN U SMILE’, 강렬한 리듬이 인상적인 ‘Hysterie’, 앨범의 대미를 장식하는 신스팝 ‘몰라’까지 전곡이 타이틀이라고 해도 손색이 없을 정도로 높은 완성도를 자랑한다. 선공개되어 “인피니트 효과”를 보여주고 있는 “마음으로..”는 국내 최고의 발라드 그룹인 M.C THE MAX의 멤버 제이윤이 선사한 곡으로, 그동안 인피니트에게서 볼 수 없었던 진한 감성을 느낄 수 있다.

한편, 인피니트 멤버들의 새로운 이미지 변신을 위해, 비스트, 포미닛, 티아라 등과 작업한 국내 최고의 스타포토그래퍼 김제원작가가 앨범작업에 참여했다. 이번 타이틀곡의 메시지이기도 한 “동 시대를 살아가는 젊은이들의 허무함 허탈감 외로움 그리고 그 안에 있는 희망, 자신감”을 인피니트 멤버들의 인물에 투영하여 보는 이의 시선을 사로잡는다. 이처럼 국내 최고 뮤지션과 스텝들이 총출동, 올스타팀의 전폭적인 지원과 함께 돌아올 인피니트의 2011년 1월 화려한 비상을 지켜보자.

Great! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Okay, so I don't recall when I got this item, but I do know it took a good two-three weeks to get - but then again, I expected as much, living in the UK. Our post system... is much to be desired. >.<

Regardless, when it arrived I screamed with joy. However, the album cover has gold on it. Mine doesn't, and I was unsure if that was how it was printed or...? Anyone else?

The intro was, well, an intro. I wasn't expecting anything utterly amazing, but it was nice.

BTD (Before the Dawn), the first (technically second, but meh) track, is just so good. It's incredibly catchy, the dance is amazing if you've watched the MV, and overall a really great song I NEVER get tired of listening to. Like, ever. Its lyrics are surprisingly dark and not at all what I was expecting, which makes Infinite all the more unique and dare I say, original? While I feel others sing a lot about love in happy ways, Infinite sings about it more darkly, and possessive? It's just great <3

Can U Smile is another song I adored. I prefer this version to their remake in Inspirit, but it fits the album, so why not? I don't know how to describe this. The melody feels light-hearted, but I bet the lyrics aren't xD Really a cute song, and I loved Woohyun and Sunggyu's vocals in this, especially during the chorus.

Hysterie is a really catchy, mellow beat type of song and something I find myself snapping my fingers to constantly. Very happy with this song <3

Eh, Voice Of My Heart is fine. I said earlier that it was slow, but after re-listening, it does have a fast-ish beat to it, but it's that type of song for me, which I wouldn't mind skipping if I had it on a shuffled playlist. I can't really say it's bad, because it isn't. I'm just not as fond of it as I am others.

Finally, I Don't Know, is another surprisingly 'upbeat'-ish song. I was expecting a ballad from its title, but it was great! Very... dramatic? That's how I'd describe it as a genre. I can't describe it, you'd have to listen to it for yourself to describe it, urgh >//<

Overall, a good buy! I recommend it, definitely. You don't get photocards, but the photobook stuck on the inside of the front cover was very nice to look at ;)

Love it :3 Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Since I discovered this group, I can't stop listening to their songs.
BTD is one of the songs, that I never get tired of it. I like the dark design of the album.
It contains also a photobook, which is stuck on the CD case. There's also an explanation of the word infinite in english.
I love this album! ^__^ ♥~

INFINITE DAEBAK! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I bought this along with First Invasion as soon as I became a fan.
This is my favourite album so far. Al the songs are so beautiful and well done

01. Intro (Evolution)
is a very simple intro but still kinda catchy, it gives you a glimpse of what youll hear later on in the album ;)

02. BTD (BEFORE THE DAWN) _ 타이틀곡
We all know how epic this song is is just AMAZING. It really gets stuck in your head

03. CAN U SMILE
Though I like inspirit's version of this song better, this is still refresing to listen to

04. Hysterie
One of my fave songs in the album. It has that "Michael Jackson feeling" in it. Also, the rap is just plain HOT

05. 마음으로.. (Voice of my heart)
My favourite song. The lyrics, the emotions they portray, the vocal talent... everything is amazing

06. ’몰라’
This song has a rock feeling and it's super catchy. You'll love it as soon as you listen to it!

Infinite just made me love them with this album, I proudly became an inspirit while listening to this *claps claps* You won't regreat buying. The quality of the album is just amazing.
About the package, it's not hard like "First Invasion" but the material is still very nice ;) And the best part... HELL YEAH THE PHOTOBOOK is gorgeus *__* the guys look amazing and super handsome. Each of them have 3 pages of pictures and of course group photos with their amazing hairstyles and all.

Just saying, you're crazy if you don't buy this.

Brilliant follow-up to 'First Invasion' Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
The boys debuted with a very strong mini-album showcasing a solid set of songs with impressive vocals. They returned with a mini-album not dissimilar to the first, in terms of quality and genre. Visually the band has taken a bit of a U-turn from boy-next-door to a very striking and dark image and it works really well for them.
With the maturer visuals comes a maturer set of songs touching on themes of heartbreak, obsession and unrequited love. I can't pick out one or two favourites as all of the songs are great, without exception. I'm excited for this group and really hope that they achieve more success and popularity than they are currently getting, they seem to have a lot of potential.
