7 Songs, 24 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

SuperM feels more like a supernova than a constellation of separate stars. Its seven members hail from the already massive groups SHINee (Taemin), EXO (Baekhyun and Kai), NCT 127 (Taeyong and Mark), and Chinese band WayV (Lucas and Ten), and the combined triple threat—rapping, singing, choreography—opens up a tantalizing possibility: What if SuperM was the A-team? “Jopping” (jumping + popping = “jopping,” get it?) certainly is a hit any group would covet. SuperM’s rappers—Lucas, Mark, and Taeyong—sound especially hyped here, comfortably spitting English and Korean bars over the song’s blend of EDM, pop, and crunk. Ditto the sleek and sexy “2 Fast” and the slow and low “Super Car.” The group puts their high registers to test on the ballad “I Can’t Stand the Rain” as barrel drumbeats heighten the drama. This mini-album shows that SuperM has the musical component locked down. Combined with their uptown Mad Max look, charisma, and flawless dancing, SuperM’s future is as sky-high as they want it to be.

A great listen!

I really really like all the songs on this album although initially I was opposed but after a couple of listens and really grooving with the music I found that I have this album on repeat! These guys killed it.

Very impressed!

My sister was playing this and though I don’t usually listen to this kind of music I was quite surprised and impressed it had me nodding along to super car and I think the instrumentals are actually mesmerizing.

The K-Pop Avengers deliver an epic debut. Fire.My only criticism is that it's a mini album and not a full album!
