Songwriter Miho came to the forefront and released a mini-album "Secret". There are four songs in the album, all composed by Mihol. The other 3 songs are different versions of instrumental tracks. Miho also wrote the lyrics of the songs "Lovely S.Y." and "I" and participated in the vocal part of "Where’s The Secret". All 4 songs are of different styles, showing the musical talent of Miho.
With the help of Yangpa, one of the top female vocalists in Korea, the title song "Where’s The Secret" is a duet between the two. It is about how secrets are part of life. However, unless they have similar voices, I can hear that Yangpa sang most parts of the song. Nevertheless, this is a very nice ballad with a good piano intro. It is not like a vintage Yangpa ballad which has a lot of highs and lows throughout the song. Instead, this song is very smooth the whole way through.
Track 2 "To Not Stop" is another ballad sung by male vocalist Sam. Track 3 "Lovely S.Y." is an up-tempo song sung by Lee So Yoon. I guess S.Y. stands for So Yoon in this case. Track 4 "I" is a light-rock ballad sung by Yoo Young Suk and Star Love Fish, aka Kim Do Yeon, who also wrote the lyrics of Track 1
and 2. Yoo Young Suk’s charming voice makes this song even better.
This is a mini-album you have to listen more to appreciate the music. At first, I didn’t like it that much, but the more I listened, the more I liked each song. Like I said, the best thing about this min-album is that all 4 songs are of different varieties. If I rated it after the first time I listened, I would have only given it a 3. Now I am giving it a 4.
5/5 – Even if you’re not a fan of this artist/group this album is a must buy.
4/5 – If you’re a fan of this artist/group, you must buy this album.
3/5 – If you’re a fan of this artist/group, you might want to add this one to your collection.
2/5 – I don’t think a fan would even buy this.
1/5 – You might as well just flush your money down the toilet
