VIXX - Chained Up

Although never completely warming up to them personally, VIXX has always been a group that reliably delivers the goods when it comes to music. Because of this, I was so excited for their new album. Unfortunately, I'm finding myself underwhelmed. Maybe it's because their 2013-2014 releases were so flawless that I had set my expectations too high, but I just can't help thinking that they are capable of better. Chained Up is a perfectly serviceable title track. I certainly don't dislike it, but something feels lacking -- particularly during the verses. I think I'll have to chalk it up to personal taste, as many have been raving about the song. The chorus is catchy, for sure, but it definitely feels smaller than past tracks like Error, Eternity, Hyde or GR8U. Still, I'm giving it multiple spins in the hope that it'll grow on me.

(If you decide to buy K-Pop physical album releases -- and my god you should, because they're awesomely presented -- try catchopcd for some of the best prices out there. Use this link to get 5% off your first order!)
