Editorial Reviews

2009 release, the U.S. debut album from the Korean superstar who has taken Asia by storm ever since she released her debut album in 2000 at the age of 13. Influenced by Janet Jackson, Nelly and other hot Hip Hop and R&B artists, Boa conquered her home country before heading off to Japan to become even more popular than ever. As she has matured musically, she has managed to make a successful transformation from young pop star to mature artist. In 2009, after nearly a decade in the business, she now releases her American debut album. 12 tracks including 'Girls On Top', 'Look Who's Talking' and 'I Did It For Love'.

I received BoA's album yesterday, and my first impression was that I thought she did a really great job on this album! The whole album consist of dance track songs and the lyrics are catchy and her English is very clear as well. What I love about this album is that she included a couple songs that she did in Korea... she just put English lyrics in them. My favorite out of these 2 is Girls on Top. She still maintained the main message from her Korean version. So at least the American people who has never listened to BoA before will get a taste of how her music is in Korea.

Anyways, this album is a lot better than what I expected. I was afraid she might have some songs that wont be all that great, but I found all 11 songs to be different in their own way, that has catchy lyrics and nothing annoying about them. Even the added features like adding that electric part to her voice isn't in all her songs, or in a lot of the song. So you can hear her powerful, real voice.

Well I hope others will feel the same way as me. Of course everyone has different taste. So let's all support BoA! And i hope people who has never heard of BoA will try to listen to her and buy her album. ^_^

This CD is pretty good, though in my opinion nothing beats the old Korean BoA. The Album is chock full of electronic dance beats and really makes you wanna move. The song Girls on Top is the English version of the title track for her 2005 Korean album. The English lyrics to Girls on Top are very inspirational and uplifting. Over all the album is good but I do wish they would of thrown in some ballads to show off BoA's amazing voice.

Honestly... I was waiting for BoA's album for a quite a long time, and when I heard the 30 sec clips, I was kind of disappointed with how the album turned out to be. But after listening to the whole album, all I can say is WOW! Even though BoA's music is basically mainstream pop, if you're looking for an album that you can just listen to, have fun, and sing along to, you won't find another pop album that is as catchy, funky, groovy, and danceable as this.

Every song on this album deserves an airplay, and I'm not saying this just because they're by BoA. The songs are that catchy.

I have been a fan of Boa's for over 5 years now. When I first heard of her, I purchased all of her old albums...back to the very first release from her Korean debut in 2000. I fell in love with her sound, but couldn't understand a WORD of it because I am American and didn't know a lick of Korean or Japanese. I spent the past 4 years learning both Korean and Japanese and have since been able to enjoy ALL BoA has to offer. She's an amazing artist with a great dream and an even more amazing story.

After receiving my copy in the mail yesterday, I put the album in and COULD NOT turn it off! I was very afraid for her debut in America because I had seen so many others try and fail. But at the same time, BoA has made it clear what type of music she would be releasing, so I knew 'generally' what to expect. From that expectation, she has MORE than outdone herself! She blew my expectations out of the water and I don't even like the electronic voice overs on other artist's albums! She did this in moderation and let her true voice and style shine. I have a large family and many friends and I am going to MAKE SURE that they ALL here her songs AT LEAST once! Rule of odds says that 1 out of 10 will say yes!

If anyone is on the fence about purchasing this album, then just know that it is upbeat and fun. It is an album that will get you on your feet and moving. If you want good, fun, hot sounds to get you moving...then you NEED to buy this album!!

BoA is just too amazing! If she does not succeed in America it would be a travesty! You have to be amazed at her career and her excellent improvement in English over the years! It is awesome how they incorporated an English version of 'Girls On Top' on this CD, hopefully it will have as much success as it did in Asia. Go BoA!!!

Here is my review taken from my blog (atunes dot wordpress dot com).

I Did It For Love ft Sean Garrett - A strong opener for the album. It's actually a good indicator of what to expect throughout the rest of the cd. Heavy processing and vocoder use on BoA's vocals, which I think works in this particular situation. I like this song much more than 'Eat You Up'. I think it's better balanced and polished plus it's got a great uptemp beat. Sean Garrett adds a nice touch to the song but he kind of comes off as a copycat Akon. Elements of the song remind me of Son Ho Young's 'I Know' if it were sped up a little.

Energetic - This song comes off as a more bland version of 'I Did It For Love'. The fact that it follows the song and also featuring Sean isn't helping it's case (although he interestingly doesn't get the feature credit). It's got a decent enough beat but it doesn't stand out overall. Plus it's sort of awkward to hear BoA say "The energy in here is FIYA and the speakers too!". It's just an OK track.

Did Ya - Let me start off and say I love the production on this one. It's got a great throwback, hyped up kind of feel. Plus BoA's vocals are a little less processed on this one, which is good since I like the tone of her natural voice. Plus the chorus is easy to sing along too. I think this song would have been incredible if they got a good rapper on here. But hey, its strong enough on it's own that I can't complain. Probably my favorite track.

Look Who's Talking - So as I was listening I was thinking this song is so Britney Spears' style. And of course I check the album book and she has writing credits. Figures. If you look Britney Spears, you'll like this song. I like the chorus more than the verses.
