f(x) - Deja Vu

f(x) is undoubtedly one of the most consistent and interesting girl groups in Korea. Their music always carries an experimental edge to it that sets them apart from rivals. They're also consistent in the fact that, unlike the vast majority of idol groups, the singles taken from their albums are hardly ever the best tracks on there. 4 Walls is quite good, for sure, but no matter how much I try to nudge it from my mind, it's hard to forget that (for me) it's basically just a lesser version of Shinee's excellent View from earlier this year. Luckily, the album itself is top notch. Explosive tracks like Rude Love and Papi were the first to stick out in my head, but so far Deja Vu has had the longest lasting appeal. It's probably because I favor the 80's over the 90's, and Deja Vu hits that decade beautifully, with its fuzzy synth and glammed up, sugary melody. Either way, it's one of many tracks that make 4 Walls (the album) a total hit.
