Here it is!

Not bad, I’ve been dying to hear the Remix! =D

*It’s a post, but the Mp3 is there!
(Ask me for the rest of the mp3s please, I can’t be bothered to upload them if no-one’s going to download! =P But I seriously don’t mind if you ask! SO ASK! I’ll reply for sure!=D)

1. No Other – I’ve done this! A nice laid back, R & B song, with very soft and synchronized vocals.

2. All My Heart (written by members: Henry and Leeteuk) is the next song listed on their repackaged album and right now, I’ll just say, that it’s a very sweet, easy going song, again very different from Bonamana, and No Other, even though it still retains that R & B feel. Their vocals are again, very nice, relaxed and as easy going as the song, and they’ve got the whole “Na Na Na” thing going on in the chorus. The overall impression coming from the song is very sweet, I-LOVE-YOU type (sort of like “Good Person”). The beats, the rap, the vocals make it a very enjoyable song. RECOMMENDED! ^_^

3. OH! THIS SONG! IT ALMOST MADE ME CRY! (written by member Eunhyuk and composed by member Donghae —> EUNHAE! XD) “Goodbye” is sung as the last song by Kangin, before going for military service. I have to admit, he was never really THERE in Super Junior for me, because I was sort of DROWNED with Kyuhyun and HeeChul, and I feel really bad that I did that after hearing this song! It’s so sweet, dominated by the piano accompanied with R & B beats and taking off with the line “Oh baby say Goodbye” and those amazing whispery vocals, after which Kangin takes control of the verses and DAMN! I love his voice! The verses are pretty short and the chorus is again “Oh baby say Goodbye———-“. The bridge is just as soft as the verses, and again, this is a very memorable addition to the album; I’m glad we have such great composers and writers here! YAY! WE’LL MISS YOU KANGIN! KANGIN+SUJU FIGHTING!

4. Shake It Up! REMIX! I was WAITING FOR THIS! I’ve got to say, I’m never really a fan of remixes, because they always speed the song, and make it more dancy than it should be. Well they didn’t do the speed up thing TOO MUCH (it’s still there), but the dance thing, they were ready to do, and with that, they got rid of the amazing Jazz feel of the song, and made it more techno dance, with a little more autotune. I’m not saying it’s bad, it’s just that like every other remix, I prefer the original version better! Not bad though!

8.5/10
(Not BAD AT ALL SUJU! KEEP AT IT!)

Jaa! Mata Ne~

Bold – New Songs

Sounds – VERY DIFFERENT from Bonamana!

The boys really changed their image in this song – going from mature, and supposedly sexy concept to a much easy going, RnB phase, which is exactly what draws listeners to the song! I don’t know how many times I might have mentioned this earlier on, that their voices blend really well, (even if the song does sound a little bit autotuned), because the song starts off with a very catchy “OH-O” that is heard in every chorus, and is a great highlight of the song.  The beats used are very relaxed along with their voices, however, the chorus might seem a little bit rushed into with no actual transition, and they seem to be fitting too many words in together, but again, the OH-O at the back catches my attention. Also the rap is very…..how should I put it – Eunhyuk seems to be having fun with the rap, and they took every chance to squeeze in a bit of SORRY SORRY (Naega Michyeo Michyeo Baby!), which I thought was both cute and amusing! Like I said before, their vocals are very easy-going and I think I might even be enjoying No Other better than Bonamana, because it’s much simpler, cuter, and more fun to listen to.
So lay back, relax and listen to No Other!

Finally, after about a year and 2 months, these guys decide to return with another album!

Bonamana (미인아; literal meaning Beauty) is the fourth studio album by Super Junior, released on May 13, 2010 in South Korea. Over 200,000 copies were pre-ordered a week after the release date was announced, setting a new high record for the group. According to South Korea’s Hanteo chart, it debuted at #1 on the charts, selling over 36,000 copies on the first day of release. After eight more days of release, over 100,000 copies were sold.

Is it just me or is there too much light on Ryeowooks face? XD

*****************

Tracklist;

  1. Miina (BONAMANA) (미인아)*
  2. Nappeun Yeoja (Boom Boom) (나쁜 여자)*
  3. Eunggyeol (Coagulation) (응결)
  4. Naran Saram (Your Eyes) (나란 사람)
  5. My Only Girl
  6. Sarangi Ireotke (My All Is In You) (사랑이 이렇게)
  7. Shake It Up!
  8. Jamdeulgo Sipeo (In My Dream) (잠들고 싶어)
  9. Bomnal (One Fine Spring Day) (봄날)
  10. Joheun Saram (Good Person) (좋은 사람)
  11. Here We Go

* Promotional Songs/Singles

Starting of the album is their new single 미인아 (BONAMANA). The genre of this song is described as “SJ FUNKY”, which is true because it IS Super Junior, and the song IS “Funky” to a certain extent (although I don’t think anyone uses that term anymore XD). It’s got nice beats and all, and its heavily auto-tuned to the point that I couldn’t tell who was singing which part until I saw the video but the song does remind one of SORRY SORRY, maybe because it’s written and composed by the same person who did SORRY SORRY, and it also reminds me of SHINee’s Ring Ding Dong so it doesn’t actually seem like a TURNING POINT IN SJ MUSIC! Also, it’s probably not AS catchy as those 2 songs, might get annoying after a while, but nevertheless, it’s still CATCHY, whereas SORRY SORRY was CATCHY AS HELL!
(8/10)

From the “funky” sounds of Miina, we move onto another pretty catchy, dance number 나쁜 여자 BOOM BOOM (is it okay to call it dance? I’m not too sure). Pretty nice placing, that’s for sure, because BOOM BOOM isn’t as fast as Miina, and it generally makes a nice transition song. Not too bad as a song itself, it’s got a nice beat as well, maybe also annoying to listen to sometimes,maybe a bit MEH at times. It’s seriously a depends-on-your-mood type song. The best part probably has to be the “Twinkle Twinkle little star” line, slowing the song a little bit till the chorus, which was annoying and disappointing, I was expecting more of a rough, loud !BOOM BOOM! chorus and not the present one, which (I’m sorry) just ruins the song. Plus I can’t be bothered to listen to the full song in one go, because it’s just not THAT interesting!
(7/10)

Super Junior K.R.Y decides to take over in 응결 (Coagulation) after BOOM BOOM. Hmmm….not a bad song – pretty much dominated by the piano till the near middle, where more strong instruments kick in. Their vocals have always been impressive – they are pretty soft in the beginning and get louder and stronger with the music till a point where the MUSIC actually seems to drown their voices, which must stand for REALLY loud and strong instruments actually capable of dominating KYUHYUN’s voice! HA! Well, it does have it’s weak points but the song is overall very sweet, with a pretty “singable” tune, and a soft ending.
(8/10)

Turning away from Coagulation,we run into 나란 사람 (Your Eyes), a nice semi-mid paced song, with a pretty sweet arrangement, piano, finger snaps, and starting with the most suitable person to sing a song like this – Kyuhyun, moving onto Yesung – well no wonder, it’s a duet between those two which is a pretty good idea because their voices sound good  together in a song and they DO have the strongest vocals in the group. Nice song.
(7/10)

I’m not sure what genre we put My Only Girl into, but it is a catchy song, seems too slow too dance to. It’s got the typical techno feel to it, got a considerable amount of music changes. I can actually tell who’s singing what part – HEECHUL! I can HEAR HIM! YAY! FINALLY! It’s catchy, a kind of song that makes one just want to just shake a little, or just hum along with the chorus which, if you listen to over an over, is  really catchy – “You’re my Only, You’re My Only, You’re my O-O-O-Only Girl!”  However, it’s too short for my liking but a nice change from slow or mid paced songs!
(7/10)

Now we have the semi-mid paced half-cheerful 사랑이 이렇게 My All Is In You. I don’t really have much to say about this. It’s okay I guess. The guys’ voices blend in very well in the chorus, and Yesungs and Kyuhyun’s adlibbing is as impressive as ever. Like I said, it’s just half cheerful, a sort of put-a-good-feeling-in-your-heart type song.
(7/10)

Moving onto the most impressive and catchiest song of the album Shake It UP! DAMN! This song made me want to dance from the very first listen, even though it might not be a complete dance number. Like I said before, their voices blend perfectly, and thus the chorus going “SHAKE IT UP!~” is AMAZING! I love this song from A to Z. It’s got some nice jazz instruments runnning in the back as well and I would’ve actually preferred if they used this song as a promotional song and not BOOM BOOM. There’s just no describing this song, it’s one their best songs EVER!
(9.5/10)

Now, we have a ballad-type song 잠들고 싶어 (In My Dream). The name sort of gave it away, it’s a nice slow song, with pretty strong vocals from the guys. The chorus has very strong and steady vocals but won’t get stuck in your head. I’m glad this isn’t K.R.Y, but the rest as well (which mostly includes Sungmin and Donghae, but the others were there as well). Over that, the bridge and the last chorus were very impressive as well. A generally nice song.
(7/10)

Again, we have the slow-paced 봄날 – Bomnal (One Fine Spring Day). Ryeowooks solo – not bad, but he really isn’t my favourite, so I wasn’t really interested in the song. That said, the song’s got a nice tune, and his vocals fit in, with the piano and violins. The chorus is a bit One Fine Spring Day-ish(XD), so it is generally nice!
(6/10)

AHA! A song like Angela from their previous album  – 좋은 사람 (Good Person). It’s got a very cheerful the-day’s-gonna-be-fine feeling. A very “LOOK UP! The sky is shining!” type song. The kind of song I’ve heard most Japanese singers sing – the vocals and the music are balanced, so the music hasn’t overpowered their vocals and the bridge quickly transits to the last chorus. Not a bad addition to the album, actually, the album was desperately in need of such a song, after ther ballads! Nice job on this song!
(7/10)

Now! A song that makes me look forward to FIFA! HERE WE GO! This might not be the song they sang for the World Cup, but I wish they had. I don’t why, but it just reminds me of football, and it’s got a very “GET UP! GET UP” feeling – if you know what I mean. Plus I’m happy the bridge was sung with Yesung and Kyuhyun, because their vocals as usual are amazing and compliment each other. Also, I’m REALLY happy Eunhyuk, and Shindong ended the song with their rapping because they haven’t really been heard in the rest of the album! Ah! A nice end to the album! GOOD JOB GUYS!
(8/10)

I know, my ratings are lenient, but I really LOVE SUJU, and can’t give them less than a 5/10. Sorry Sorry!

Overall Rating
7.5/10

Jaa! Mata Ne~

Well I must have mentioned my love for SuJu and I can’t help but fall in deep mad love with this video. Face it, we all know none of the guys are PHDs in English and this just proves it! I swear EunTeuk make the cutest RJs!

Eh…Hem….Translation? =D Well I don’t know Korean but let me just translate their engRish into well…….engLish.

EunTeuk – *TRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIING*

Teuk: He-Yo (Something between a Hello and Yo – I’m just guessing!)
Hyuk: Yo! Wazzup!?
Teuk: So you~wh-why call me now?
Hyuk: Yah! I miss you Baby (XD)
Teuk: Oh you miss?
Hyuk: Yeah!
Teuk: I miss ME too, Ye-
Hyuk: I LUB YOUUUUUUUUUUU!
Teuk: I LUB YOUU! Take Goood care Okay!
Hyuk: Bye Bye! (<3)
Teuk: Ah Bye Bye!

Now isn’t that ADORABLE?! “I miss me too” was CLASSIC! I love these two so much and them not knowing english  just adds to their EXTREME CUTENESS!

TEUKIE SO HANDSOME and HYUKKIE would’ve looked handsome too if he took off that abomination on his head and showed his LOVELY HAIR! OHHHH I LOVE HIS HAIR!

But just incase people DON’T know how amazing his hair is:

Even though you can’t see much of his hair, this should still give a glimpse of his oh so amazing hair.And THIS IS WHY HE SHOULD TAKE THAT…THAT….THING OFF HIS HEAD!

That’s his sister btw so fangirls relax!

Yay! Oh KyuHyun! Oh how I LOVE him! His voice, his face, HIM! What’s there not to love about him!

1

And I’m sooooo glad he did a solo song!

Oh and I must say he looks REALLY GOOD! xD!

This was originally sung for the soundtrack of the Korean show Pasta (haven’t seen it so I don’t know much about it) and the soundtrack includes and MR version of it.

AMAZING SONG. It starts off with some extremely nice guitar playing and follows onto Kyuhyuns voice – which is magnificent enough to blow ANYONE away. It’s such a nice and calming song and the chorus is so beautiful – especially the little sweet “I love you” at the end. Awwww! Kyuhyun! YOU ARE SO AMAZING! Its got a very nice feeling to it and if you want to go out for a nice relaxing walk or if you want to just get all calm and relaxed this is one of the songs you MUST listen to.

Rating

5/5

FULLY RECOMMENDED!
