Okay honestly, for someone who isn’t fluent in Korean and all, I hyperventilated listening to the new tracks, (Still Alive, Monster and Bingeul) bc of how everything was arranged and the instrumentals and the vocals (omg the vocals - you seriously can die because of all the emotion in there)
BUT after reading the translations and all for Still Alive and Monster, and listening to Jiyong’s and Dae’s parts I really can see and hear and feel all the emotion just flooding my eardrums. Not saying that Top, Ri and Tae don’t sing with emotion and all - they ALL do, but it’s just that with what happened to Ji and Dae last year, their parts come up more prominently than the rest, and seriously, just read between the lines of Monster and Still Alive, esp for the parts where Ji and Dae sing. Despite coupling the parts with the concept of love and loss etcetera, the lines about what happened in 2011 really stand out.
And listening to how brilliantly interwoven together the entire song is, plus how brilliantly Ji and Top wrote the parts and just, omg really can cry :’(
