SHINee – 산소 같은 너 (Love Like Oxygen) [Digital Single]

August 30, 2008 at 2:22 am (SHINee) (, )

SHINee’s digital single in order to promote their new album The SHINee World, entitled 산소 같은 너 (Love Like Oyxgen), was released on 08.22.08.

산소 같은 너 (Love Like Oxygen) is a pop dance song that really captures the listener from start to finish. The song begins a sleek dance instrumental and soon Jognhyun comes in and delivers some very memorable vocals as they show off power. Following is Onew, who provides some smoother and more enticing vocals. Key follows with some more nice vocals that keep the atmosphere of Onew’s vocals before Taemin and Minho deliver the hook. Their vocals go perfectly with each other’s and makes a smooth transition into the chorus. The chorus is a real standout part of the song because the boys hit the higher notes smoothly and it keeps the listener wanting more. Later in the song, Jonghyun gives some great vocals that sound great and definitely fits with the music. Closing the song is a rap sequence delivered by Minho and Key which catches the listener’s ear and then they sing the title of the song repeatedly. This song is absolutely addictive and a great choice to be put out as a digital single.

In order to promote the single, a PV was made. The video is pretty simple as it features the boys dancing. Although there isn’t much going on there, the boys definitely have a fluidity to their moves and the viewer can appreciate just how smoothly and strongly they hit their marks. Each of the boys gets their own color to wear, making each person shine. The solo scenes stand out as well and Onew is the most eye-catching of the group. It’s definitely an enjoyable video worth checking out as the boys look great and it works with the song’s atmosphere.

Single Ranking: A +

    Their debut was better in my opinion. This seemed like a very pale comparison.

    hahahaha, I decided to do K-Pop reviews too. I actually did a review for K-Pop Princess Hyori Lee “It’s Hyorish” so this is officially the 2nd Korean review XD

    I haven’t checked out their debut stuff / mini-album but I might go back and see if this new album is any good 🙂
