    I actually like it very much.

    My Lifestyle is such a simple laid-back song, that the simplicity and predictable repetativeness is a positive thing. I just wany to tap my feet while drinking coffe after a long day of work with that song playing. But rap part was useless.

    And I didn’t notice that her voice was nasal here, but it gets really obvious on high notes elsewhere. Such a shame, she really has that sweet light tone in her voice and she can naturally do that high notes in chest voice easily without making it sound like belting, while maintainig the same volume, and I like her vibrato very much. She adds that contrast to Tayeon’s darker voice and edge to their songs.

    Too bad that her vocal range shrunk over the years, and her voice got a bit nasally, but I still like her.

    I also like Maxstep. It wouldn’t surprise me if YYJ composed it, its his style all over the place. A really good SMP track in recent years. It’s loud and obnoxious

    My problem with Maxstep is that it’s clearly recycled from the dubstep mix YYJ made for the Taemin/Kai/Eunhyuk dance break at Gayo Daejun, which is disappointing to say the least. And honestly, Maxstep sounds like a leftover EXO teaser song. The dubstep can be overbearing in some parts, and Hyoyeon’s voice doesn’t sound distinct to me because it’s drowning in all of the electronic backing. But, I guess it’s an interesting choice for endorsement purposes, although it tends to drone on.

        ohh the mX made the exact same joke about that. Here I was, all excited that they were talking about Asian artists that weren’t Psy, and they pull that out -_-

          Not surprised — it writes itself.

          Be glad they didn’t go all the way down the former TVXQ roster and get to “Hero.” I can think of at least three sarcastic zingers off the top of my head.

    Gave Jessica’s song a fair listen. Sadly, her voice is just too immature for my taste. Plus, I couldn’t stop hearing “My Eunach Lifestyle” — and if you’re a healthy man, that’s not the kind of lifestyle you should be living…

    Oh my diddys days, Maxstep’s rhythmn (the dee dee dee dee bit) reminds me of a another song by a Grime (<—a type of genre) rapper from London. I LOVE IT. I'm already getting nosebleeds from imagining the video :D

    Very upset that not even one member from f(x) was chosen to either do a song or be on this dance unit.

    I actually love Hyoyeon’s prominent featuring in MAXSTEP. It’s about time SM stuck her in the middle of something.
    I agree on Jessica’s voice. Personally I love it…she has a natural high register and her vibrato is possibly the strongest I’ve heard on a female idol, the girl can adlib too. Technically, she’s amazing and when she’s doing a smooth jazz number of a soft ballad she sounds angelic. But there are times when I have to step back and be like nuh-uh girl that sounded terrible. The nasal quality in her voice can be pretty grating, especially in SNSD’s more cutesy songs. There’s this line in Oh she does that is pretty much made to high light her nasal voice that I dread lmao.

    I’m just glad Henry is doing something.
