    I thought Spica’s song and music for Lonely was a step in the right direction and it was good  and I actually like it as a song after I’ll Be There which I thought the song was lackluster. As for the music video I thought it does suit the song and music video well as the song is called “Lonely” (i should look up the lyrics translation for the song)

    Ridiculously unoriginal, not memorable, and Can’t Speak French is too similar and more listen-able then this song, which has too many of the too-familiar k-pop riffs that I hate. I can;t like this just because it’s conceptually better then their last song; They need to step up their releases to match up to less talented rookies and cement themselves a a group I should actually begin to care about. Russian Roulette and Killer were on point, this is a step in the wrong direction.

    Lonely’s lyrics weren’t written by Bohyung and Boa, they respectively wrote Geunal Bam and With You. Lonely’s lyrics was written  Song Sooyoon, who usually works with Sweetune.

    Totally agreed with your review though. :)

      Aww, that’s a bummer since I actually really liked the lyrics of the song. The lyrics felt more … personal? than the average K-pop lyrics, and I thought it was really well done.

      Oh well, thanks for pointing that out by the way! I’ll have to check out the lyrics of those two songs then to gauge the Spica members’ creative ability :/

    I like it better than I’ll Be There so that’s something. I haven’t listened to any of the other songs yet, but I really hope they give me something a little bit more interesting in there.

    I have to say I was very disappointed with their last two comebacks. I had no problem with “I’ll be there” style-wise but sound-wise I couldn’t believe it was something Spica would do. While “Lonely” for me was a miss both sound-wise and concept-wise.
    “Lonely” is unoriginal and dare I say it, downright boring, repetitive and sounds like something 99% of kpop girl groups are doing right now. But I could even put that aside, considering that their delivery is beyond amazing (which does set them apart), if the visual aspect was executed in a better way. The MV, well Jasper summed up my thoughts on it. The dresses (oh God those awful dresses), even though they do look their age, had the wrong cut and material. The melody is too familiar and the rap part as much as I love JuHyun, was completely unnecessary, it reminded me of something Cube would give to Hyuna on a 4Minute song.
    “That night” is flat, rap part again ruined the parts that were good (mostly Boa and Bohyung’s parts).
    “With you” sounded like something Sister or 4Minute would come out with, Narae’s and Jiwon’s voices sound too squeaky and the lyrics are as generic as they come.
    The only song I enjoyed from the new mini is “Since you’re out of my life”. All the girls sound good, their voices don’t fall flat, Jiwon and Narae don’t sound like they just hit puberty, Bohyung and Boa stand out the most of course (Bohyung amazed me in this one) and Juhyun shows off her vocal ability again (which to me is far better than her rap skills). The song is beautiful, it has that lat 1990′s early 2000′s r’n'b/pop sound that I love so much.
    The girls are vocally amazing, but sadly I don’t see them becoming popular. They will be respected (by idols and artist alike) and will have their fanbase, but I don’t see them having a song that will become so popular as to propel them into stardom. One of the reasons for it is that they do the type of music that doesn’t cater to the average listener as well as a kpop fan (even when they do try they fall short) and the other being that they sound and look maybe even too mature. I do wish them the best, I’ve been with them since debut and I do consider myself a fan. The ladies have talent and potential, and I hope they prove my statement wrong and go on to do great things. I know that despite me not finding this mini interesting, I will continue watching them and listening to their stuff. Spica is a rare group in a sea of generic kpop groups and they deserve to be recognized. I just wish they had songs that showed off their talent in a better way.

    Lonely is much better than I’ll Be There. i think they should perform Since You;re Out Of My Life live somewhere. :))
