아이유 미니플러스앨범 - Real+

01. 나만 몰랐던 이야기
02. 잔혹동화
03. 나만 몰랐던 이야기(With Pianist 김광민)


전작의 놀라움을 잇는 소녀 디바 아이유의 새 앨범
특별함과 새로움을 더한 그녀의 새로운 이야기

IU’s 3rd MINI PLUS ALBUM [REAL+]

2011년 현재, 가요계를 뛰어넘어 대한민국을 뒤흔들며 대중과 평단의 극찬을 받은 아이유가 세 번째 미니 플러스 앨범 [REAL+]을 발표하며 ‘아이유 신드롬’을 이어간다.

[REAL+]의 타이틀곡은 윤상의 작품인 ‘나만 몰랐던 이야기’로 윤상 특유의 노스탤지아 코드워크와 멜로디가 결합된 마이너 발라드 곡이다. 차별화된 구조와 악기배열로 기존 마이너 발라드곡과는 다른 특별함을 만날 수 있는 이 곡은 간결하면서도 아름다운 리얼 악기들의 스케일이 아이유의 절제된 보이스와 완벽한 조화를 이루고 있다. 그 동안 발랄함과 순수함을 노래했던 아이유의 기존 곡들과는 달리 ‘나만 몰랐던 이야기’는 한층 성숙해진 아이유의 감성과 세밀한 곡 해석력을 만나볼 수 있다.

여기에 saintbinary의 작품인 '잔혹동화'와 '나만 몰랐던 이야기'의 피아노 버전이 함께 수록되어 있다.

이번 새 앨범 [REAL+]는 솔로여가수로서 가요계에 큰 의미를 던지고 있는 아이유의 존재감을 다시 한번 느낄 수 있는 앨범이다.

Beautiful Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
In this single we have two new songs of which the first, 나만 몰랐던 이야기, has been redone in another version with the pianist Kim Kwang-Min. They are three beautiful ballads, very melancholy and a little gothic the second, 잔혹동화, with an introduction that reminds a sad waltz (similar to some songs of Kanon Wakeshima as Still Doll or Suna no Oshiro. Then when I think at the age of this lovely girl I am amazed, not even 18 years at the issue of this single. At her age very often are produced insipid songs. She not, has chosen a more difficult way, doing "old" songs, but rejuvenating them with the freshness of the age and her beautiful voice. I think and hope that she can become a "treasure" in the Korean music. The package is not normal, a big format with a booklet that contains some beautiful pics of IU and well as the text songs. I love her.

Great songs, short length Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
I also like Only I Didn't Know but Scary Fairy Tale is my favorite track on this 3-piece set. The strength of this album is that the songs are the ones that IU does really well in. The weakness is that you're paying $11 for two songs, one with two versions. It's slim pickin's.

I suggest waiting for a big Best of album, with these songs, Lost Child, Someday, Rain Drop, and others. Don't know if that's going to happen but fingers crossed.

One Song! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I usually don't care for mini-albums and this one is really a mini-mini album. But, it's worth it for just one song, "The Story Only I Didn't know". I saw her sing this with only piano accompaniment and it was outstanding. The real IU with her extraordinary voice that we don't get a chance to hear as she is buried in the pop culture. I do hope this lovely girl with the gifted voice can one day get out of the pop culture and be able to record real music that her incredible voice is suited for. I highly recommend this CD for that one song.
