[Star of the Week][Song Review] B.A.P Arms Itself Against the World with ′One Shot′
This group may be run by bunnies from outer space, but here′s a sharp reminder that the bunnies apparently have a few machine guns hidden up their sleeves.
Following its brief bright and bouncy detours with Crash and Stop It, as well as its sentimental dip into Rain Sound, B.A.P has crashed back down to earth with another deep and booming, large-scale piece titled One Shot.
The song marks a return to the group′s original concept, characterized by its trademark basses, strings, blasting guns and ringing sirens. The smell of gunpowder hangs in the air, along with a taste of metal.
It is in these songs that each member′s voice shines in its own place. Every member plays his role in leading the song to where it should end up, from Bang Yong Guk′s deep rap to Dae Hyun′s piercing high notes and everyone in between. No one is left out, and everyone commands his own part.
Regardless of whether you′ve known B.A.P as a pack of warrior wolves or just thought it was a cute group of bunnies, One Shot manages to set straight the group′s color yet again and draws you in to its deep, defiant mood.
So pull out the guns (the fake kind, of course), and get ready to fight against the world as One Shot′s drums beat in your head.
