[Review] [Album] TaeTiSeo – “Twinkle”
Despite debuting with the most absurd nonsensical fabricated word in the history of K-pop, Taetiseo – the unholy amalgamation of the first syllable of the given name of each member (Taeyeon, Tiffany, andSeohyun) of the subunit – nonetheless has a lot going for it. While Orange Caramel is shamelessly overt in its intentions, the diabetic threat that Taetiseo poses is on an entirely different level, mainly because of the sheer number of SONEs out there.
As a trio, they’ve got great live vocals – Taeyeon has always been recognized as the vocalist of the SM nonagon, but Taetiseo so far has really been more like a TiSeo vehicle, in the sense that Tiffany and Seohyun are finally getting the opportunity to shine vocally. In this regard, SM Entertainment made a particularly prudent decision in choosing Tiffany and Seohyun to round out the trio because they not only hold their own (vocally) with Taeyeon, but they’re the two members with the greatest potential to grow in popularity (read: underutilized in the nonagon). Tiffany is a talented vocalist in her own right, and her bubbly personality has won her a cult following within the fandom. Seohyun is also a favorite amongst SONE fanboys, and has so far been impressive during live performances of “Baby Steps” and “Twinkle“.
But how does the music hold up?
Anonymous asked: Any plans on reviewing Taetiseo's Twinkle album? Considering Seo Empress is involved in the whole thing and all, I was surprised not to find one on your site :o Btw, nice selca. Werk.
I actually requested a writer of mine to write one, but she hasn’t responded yet.
I’m guessing she’s slaving to finish her finals, which is totally understandable. That also explains the absence of TESTAMENTVM and NaRae, so hang tight.
I’ll consider writing one if Penny doesn’t show :o
ps. thanks for the love, bb.
