I admit I was being a bad Cassie (Wow, I've never called myself that before. It feels strange). I didn't want to like this album because I've been following JYJ and I got caught up in all the controversy! But, as much as I am disappointed that Yunho and Changmin use the TVXQ name as a duo; I LOVE THIS ALBUM.

The title and leading track WHY (Keep Your Head Down) took a bit to grow on me because it's so different. But it was an excellent choice for promoting the album. It's a strong dance/rock mix that proves HoMin has still got it! I'm still not sure what to think about the lyrics... Is it about JYJ? Is it "just a song about a guy and a girl" as HoMin claim? It could go either way for me. Maximum is another upbeat track that feels a lot like classic TVXQ~ Only with two voices. And backup vocals. Which weirds me out a bit, because they guys(5) used to be their own backups. It feels strange to need outside voices coming into their songs... Honey Funny Bunny seems like such a strange song to me. At first I thought "Are you serious!?" but then it got stuck in my head and now... I can't stop listening to it. This is also Yunho's SOLO track. Confession is a beautiful love song, executed perfectly by Changmin (as this is his SOLO track). It reminds me of what I expect TVXQ ballads to sound like - GORGEOUS. Our Game is another track I didn't care for at first. It starts with sound effects that made me think there was something wrong with my computer! XD But the beat is steady and it grows on you quickly. She stood out to me right away. The sound reminds me of something I've heard before, but I can't quite place it. It's that familiar feeling, without feeling overdone that I like. As well as the superb vocals & instrumental. Duh, it's TVXQ. And finally, ATHENA! The first track I fell in love with. I told my mom, "This is what happens when you mix classical and rock with HOMIN!" haha. But seriously, I can't get enough of this track. Hearing this from the Athena drama OST was enough to convince me to give the whole album a shot.
