If Rolling Stone is the barometer of musical trends in the US, then Girls’ Generation has reason to celebrate. Already on their list of Top 10 KPop Acts Most Likely to Break in the US, the magazine took a moment to praise their latest single “I Got A Boy.” Giving the song 3.5 out of 5 stars, they went on to say, ”It took the most beloved of all Korean girl groups (and a handful of Euro writers) to finally deliver a song as sharply plotted and blindingly razzle-dazzle as the K-pop machine itself. Harmonizing, speed rapping, and belting like divas, mostly in Korean, these nine young idols romp through a candy land of pop sounds, from minimal R&B to high-BPM dance. It’s a musical gymnastics routine.” Who wouldn’t want to romp around in a candy land of pop sounds?
What do you think? Is 3.5 stars sufficient?
