When I had heard previews of the songs, I was not very impressed. Even now something just feels like it's missing (HoMin), but these songs have really grown on me and I am officially a big JYJ fan. (psh, like that was unexpected...)

Itsudatte Kimi ni just sounds so sad... which bothered me at first. But thinking about where these guys are in their lives right now, it does make sense. And so the fact that they can be so real and channel their feelings so well... it's like magic. I think my favorite part of this song (aside from all of it) would be Junsu's high notes. He really adds *something* to the song. I'm also thoroughly enjoying Yuchun's soft voice - he's usually rapping or getting small bits in ballads. Get Ready is so much fun! I'm glad there is a song like this on the album. It's not quite a pop song, but not quite a dance song either. Just one of those GO CRAZY AND FEEL GOOD kind of songs. Long Way is my favorite song (especially the instrumental). It's not your typical ballad; the mix of drums and a harp make such an interesting sound. Finally, W (Double)... what can be said about this song?! The lyrics are so beautiful I just want to cry. Another ballad that just seems so sad, but this one also has that hint of hope that makes my heart swell. This is another ballad that the boys (men) have put so much of themselves and their own personal feelings into. And again, it really pays off.

If you like music with a message, you will love this album. If you appreciate hearing the depths of a person's emotions through their voice, this is the album for you. If Junsu, Jejung, and/or Yuchun's voices make you melt, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

A bit different -- I have the audio from the DVD of JYJ's Thanksgiving Live in Dome concert. I did not keep the talk portions in this audio cut. If anyone is actually interested in them, I'll re-cut the 'album', but otherwise here are the 18 songs performed. I also edited track 12; I cut the band introductions. If anyone is bothered by this, I will be more than happy to re-cut this track as well. I originally made this for personal reasons and decided to share as an after-thought.

Points I'd Like To Make: 1] Yuchun's English. There's something about this live where he sounds even clearer and sexier than ever. I was especially impressed with Shelter. Though his rap in XIAHTIC was a little on the disappointing side. The only words I can seem to make out is Yuchun dropping the f*bomb about four times. I don't much care for swearing, and since that's all I understood... sadness. 2] The chemistry. It's almost as if the whole crowd melts away and they're singing to each other, in their own little world... it's beautiful. 3] Vocal quality. Even though this is a live performance, their vocals are the closest to studio quality that I have heard from an artist in a long time. 4] The rawness. Is that the right word? What I mean is that this live is full of raw emotion. During the happy songs you can tell just how much fun they're having. During the sad songs you can tell how much their hearts ache. They have truly put 100% of themselves into this entire live.
