Album Review: Golden Child - Pump it Up
Golcha's new single album is too small for it to get album accolades, but it features three great tracks, and I thought I should do an album review.
Pump it Up (Full Review)
I am worried about how this will age still, but currently, I still love it.
Probably my favorite song in the single album, 'That Guy' is an emotional orchestral ballad, which reminds me of B1A4's 'A Lie'. I see myself returning to this ballad during triumphs and failures. The sentimental orchestral vibe works great, and member Dayeol stands out quite well too.
Lean on Me
An Infinite-esque dance track. Lean on Me could get a bit of help from better vocal arrangements to make it compete with 'Lately' or 'Eyes on You'. Still, I will groove to this quite a bit. It is not unique, but easily the best performed track this album.
Overall Score: 9/10
Golden Child's new single album might not have enough tracks to count for my end of year lists (and even if I let it, it would score low due to the size). Still, I highly recommend at least one listen to it.
