♪ Lie (FT Island, 2009) ♪

FT Island’s move to pop-rock territory definitely paid off. By jumping off the bandwagon, they’ve gained a more interesting boyband personality, and the music is definitely less formulaic, allowing more styles to be explored (and hopefully, conquered). “Lie” is a mid-tempo ballad with a solid guitar backbone; the rapping provides an interesting counterpoint to the wrenching ballad vocals. If this is any indication of their work in the future, then I’m definitely on board.
