Rain Effect Album Review

RAIN IS BACKKKK! After serving in the military for 2 years, boiling in controversy, Rain is back with his 6th album! 
Rain Effect: This is an intro, obviously and it's the intro used for the 30sexy song. I like it, the whole r&b, old Justin Timberlake/Timbaland vibe but with a Rain touch to it, unlike Seungri's complete imitation (no shade). I like it!
30 Sexy: This is one of the main title songs he'll be promoting with. I like how he says "I'm thirty sexy.." but the way he's pronouncing it could possibly be "I'm dirty sexy' and it's meant to be on purpose haha. Because he doesn't explain the meaning of being 30 sexy, and he knows English very well. He knows what he's doing. I'm here for it Rain. HAHAHAHA. It's pop, like I said the pop r&b mix Justin Timberlake does but it still has the kpop flavor to it. I like it! It's very catchy, I do think the falsettos are a bit tooo much, almost overbearing, but I still love the song. Since he's Rain it'll be a hit, but since he's under so much controversy in Korea who knows what's happened to his image...
LOVE the video, love the choreo as usual. It's a very simple video but very sexy! Love the boot hahahaha!
LA Song: I love the instrumental sooo much but he didn't do the song justice with the lyrics and composition. That chorus is horrible simply because it sounds like he's straining himself. Plus there's not much to the song, but it's so funky and I love the bass and it's SOOO MUCH FUN TO DANCE TOOOOOO. So I like what he tried to do, but since it's soooo catchy and repetitive you can't help but enjoy the song. Love it.

*sigh* This video hahah. I really do want to express my appreciation for Rain ALWAYS having diversity in whatever he does. From his backup dancers, to music videos, thank you for being one of the few Koreans who care for their international fans and like to include people from all over the world in the music video (side eye YG and SM). I don't understand what this video was about, I don't like the fetish part where he gave the black girl the big booty and busts, but like I said at least we ARE IN THE VIDEO AND NOT BEING APPROPRIATED for once.
Where Are You Going Oppa ft Hyuna of 4Minute: I can't take this song or rather just their voices. Actually I don't like it at all. The song is all over the place, the annoying nagging, please, return to sender. I don't wanna hear this ever again. 
Marilyn Monroe: Thank you for thissssssssss, after the tragedy that was the previous song, I needed something to soothe my ears again. It's very calm and soothing but it's still mid-tempo r&b. Great song!!

Superman: Rain has the power to make really good songs, and then he also creates really bad songs. This is one of them lol. I don't know if this song is a joke or not, but it's pretty bad and amateurish hahaha. If you wanna laugh, go ahead and jam to this but I suggest you skip it.
Dear Mama Don't Cry: The way this song is, you would think it's a love song but if you read the lyrics it's for his mother who died when he was young. It's a veryyy sad song, but why does he have it so sexy??? Hahahaha jeez. 

Overall: This was a good album, but it wasn't his best. I feel like he produced this within a month, gave us some good songs and threw in some bad songs just to fill up the album and meet the deadline. I wouldn't say I'm disappointed but he just didn't live up to his previous works. I feel like his mindset was I'm Rain my fans will buy this regardless of its quality. As much as we don't like to admit it, JYP really does make some good songs and Rain was at his best when he was under JYP. Apart from that, I do like some of the songs, just not every song. The album was just meh. Randomly thrown together.
