If you can′t wait for winter, hop on the B.A.P ride, because this group will be rolling out the carpet for winter a bit early this year along with a warm reminder of the old days.

The group is fairly well known for its roaring music, fuming fires and powerful moves, but most recently, it has been trying to rise from the depths of Warrior, Power and No Mercy to resurface as a cute idol group with singles like Crash. Stop It, its most recent single, is another effort in the same direction.

[Star of the Week] [Song Review] B.A.P Charges On Old School-Style with ′Stop It′

Despite the new mood, however, Stop It still embodies one of B.A.P′s most defining characteristics: A subtle 90s feel that resembles the colors of first generation idols.

B.A.P′s darker songs literally screamed rebellion and hope towards a new world, much like H.O.T.′s songs more than 10 years ago (which is probably why the group looked so perfect in its performance of H.O.T.′s A Warrior′s Descendant on M Countdown).

But now, its brighter songs are showing it has the more bouncy bases covered as well.

As soon as the high notes explode and Zelo raps, the song instantly throws its listeners back to the past, and the soft chorus of voices humming in the background as well as the sounda of whistles and chimes hidden here and there are especially reminiscent of those old school winter K-Pop songs.

The lyrics are an added bonus, as they are so sweet you can′t help but notice the cute boys behind their warrior masks, as they meekly ask a girl to keep her voice down and stop losing her temper when people are around.

For those who have been yearning for the white winters of the 90s, you can count on B.A.P to bring those memories to life again, but with an added B.A.P punch, of course.
