3 2 1 is the ninth Japanese single by South Korean boy group SHINee, released on December 3, 2013. The title tracks was used as the theme song for the tv drama Tokyo Toybox. The single debuted at #3 on the Oricon Charts.
3 2 1 suprised me by being an uplifting pop/rock song instead of their usual R&B or dance inspired style. It’s a fun and catchy song, and although it doesn’t stray too far from what they usually do this song is actually very original. The boys deliver great vocal performances, every single one of them contributes very well. It’s not a complicated track, just plain fun and another great effort from the group.
Ofcourse they had to make a Japanese version for Everybody, I saw that one coming. Nonetheless, I think this is one of the tracks that kicks ass the most in their entire discography because of the heavy dubstep influence in the chorus. The fact that this song is very well produced is a well known fact by now, I like that little robotic effect. Onew and Jonghyun know how to take their moment to shine.
To balance everything, Colors of the season is a soft ballad that first follows a very classical approach before it starts to sound more like a pop power ballad. It’s beautiful and quite emotional, so this track is perfect for Onew, who obviously takes the lead. This is bound to take your breath away, so give it a listen and you’ll see why there’s not much to say about this track. This one’s more about feeling it.
