‘Baggy Jeans,’ NCT’s very own swag and confidence
'Golden Age,’ NCT's overwhelming message towards a bright future
‘Various combinations + styles’ - A unique album to fully enjoy NCT's charm!
The first single, 'Baggy Jeans,' is a hip-hop dance song that features the members' unique voices over a heavy bass line, minimalistic drums, and a synthesizer with a dreamy texture. The lyrics comparing the confidence that they are cool beyond comparison to baggy jeans are charming.
The second single, ‘Golden Age,’ is a reinterpretation of the second movement of Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 8, ‘Pathetique.’ The strong trap beat and elegant piano melodies used in various ways stand out, and the hopeful lyrics looking forward to a bright future and the rich harmony of the members create an overwhelming impression.
‘Call D’ is a hyper-pop song with lyrics that tell a story of being instinctively drawn to doppelgangers who resemble them even though they know it is dangerous. ‘PADO’ is a hip-hop song that expresses the strong emotions felt for the person they love cheerfully by comparing them to waves, and jazzy piano melodies, energetic rap, and sweet vocals capture ears.
‘Interlude: Oasis’ creates a unique atmosphere with the dreamy sound and the lyrics telling listeners to move toward a golden future together. ‘The BAT’ in a hyper-pop genre compares the powerful image of a black car crossing the night to the Batmobile. ‘Alley Oop’ is a hip-hop song that gives the message of always running towards victory without stopping, with a sense of speed. These songs, full of charms, will provide an exciting listening experience.
Also, ‘That’s Not Fair’ samples Bach’s fugue BWV 578 in G minor and creates a minor mood with the message of living with reality without trusting anyone. ‘Kangaroo,’ a medium-tempo pop song, compares the image of living life freely and cheerfully as if every day is a birthday to a kangaroo. ‘Not Your Fault,’ an R&B pop song, conveys warm words of consolation, "It's not your fault," and a cheering message to support everyone struggling.
