One-woman army is back to the modern times Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
After a 2-year hiatus from the K-Pop industry, IU returns with a massive 13-track album to reward her fans waiting in fantasy-land (no pun intended) since her previous album, 'Last Fantasy'. Despite the title, 'Modern Times' sounds less like the majority of K-Pop now and is more reminiscent of your 20th-century musicals. Like 'Last Fantasy', 'Modern Times' showcases yet another side of IU and should definitely be picked up by fans, even if you weren't fans of the modernist compositions they taught you in elementary music class.

Since there are so many tracks, I'll only go over the two title tracks, "The Red Shoes" and "Modern Times". "The Red Shoes" is really a bit of a roller coaster (especially if you watch the MV), bordering on messy musically. Changing tempos, many breaks, and IU's varying voice drag you along with the emotions of the song, whether you want to be dragged or not. It matches the MV very well, which, even if you don't understand Korean, should be understandable; a few smart fans made the connection with the original fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen in which the girl can't stop dancing if she wears the red shoes. "Modern Times", while also upbeat, is far more steady and maintains one tempo for the most part. With the woodwind band playing in the background, it really brings you back to the early 1900s musical era - all I could think of going through the album was Gershwin and "Rhapsody In Blue". If you're wondering about ballads, not to worry - IU includes a healthy amount of both upbeat and mellow tracks in the album.

IU appears to have kept the mature look she's had since 'Real', sticking to dresses instead of the shorts she had back in 'Growing Up'. In her own words, she mentioned that she has difficulty doing a sexy concept, but I think it worked out well in 'Modern Times'. Like the contemporary theme of her CD, her 'failed' sexy attempt turned out a sultry appearance that shows in the photobook and MV.

The last time fans got a healthy dose of IU was back in 2011. As they say, good things come to those who wait, and if you've been waiting for big treat from IU for the wait, you're in luck. There's no reason not to pick up the CD even if you're not a hardcore fan, with its fine singing and different flavor compared to most of the K-Pop you hear these days. If you can, get the complete special edition set with DVD and poster. You'll be set for a long time in case IU decides to tour the world again.
