So how many of you are still alive after watching the music video? Haha ok well it was pretty much as epic as the teasers indicated! I’ll breakdown my review to a couple of sections such as the music itself, interpretation of the video, and their costumes/style.
The song starts off with the beautiful piano playing a tragic and sad tune. In an instant I knew it was gonna be a heartbreaking song. Then T.O.P and GD comes in and starts rapping alternately while the piano beat picks up, getting faster and livelier. I really love TOP’s deep voice while rapping the first part! *swoons*.
The rest of the song is a beautiful mix of Taeyang, Daesung, and Seungri’s vocals mixed with some rap from GD & TOP in between. The chorus is really catchy with the line going like “I love you! Baby i’m not a monster!…I need you! Baby i’m not a monster!”. Near the end, the beat slows down and the slight sound of a slow heartbeat is heard and suddenly the piano keys banged in one loud dramatic tone marking the start of the lively chorus again . Soon after, the beat slows down once more with the violins playing a slow sorrowful tune and GD repeating the words “I think i’m sick…i think i’m sick” and thus marking the end of one epic song!
Overall I think the music was beautifully done by switching between the slow and fast paced parts. I also liked how smoothly the rap parts blend together with the rest of the song. I fell in love with it on the first listen! (more…)
