Carats, it’s finally here! Your Choice is finally in our hands, and we will be cherishing it forever. With SEVENTEEN’s 13th comeback, they’ve given us the lovely mini-album Your Choice, and it was well worth the wait.
Your Choice is released on the heels of Semicolon, an album that showed everyone the roots of who SEVENTEEN is, aka musical theatre kids. As well as their Japanese release, Not Alone brought a lot of emotions to Carats. Semicolon was about growing up and enjoying your youth, and Not Alone followed suit. While this new EP is showing a new side of SEVENTEEN, as they wanted to give us more mature sounds, and they delivered. As Carats ourselves, we couldn’t have been more hyped for this album.
We believe ‘Heaven’s Cloud’ is a top contender to have been the lead single for Your Choice, and we will forever stand by that statement. The track showed off the whole group’s vocals and has such mind-altering harmonies, they were literally so good! We also have to mention how our favorite part of any SVT track is the effortless transitions between each member’s lines.
‘Ready to Love’
The leading track off of the EP, ‘Ready to Love,’ sets up the vibes for the rest of the album as it is the main representative of the love for the album. The beat reminds us of something that would play at the end of an epic film that has more questions than answers, which goes to prove that there is more to the ‘Power Of Love Project.’ This is the only track so far that has its own MV, and it’s so pretty and has an iconic dancing in the rain scene.
‘Anyone’ has such an iconic opening and buildup that we are obsessed! It also incorporates a really cool guitar part as a backup for the chorus, which makes this track even more iconic. In all honesty, it’s probably one of our favorite songs that have been released this year. We also got the first performance of the track, which you can see here, it did not disappoint.
On the first listen and without even looking at who helped to produce or write ‘GAM3 BO1,’ we instantly knew Vernon had a hand in this Hip-Hop Unit track. Why do we say that? Well, with his favorite artist being Charli XCX, we can see where he incorporated Hyperpop into the track. It’s a really fun and super addictive song that we can see it becoming a trending song on TikTok.
‘Wave’ gives us such happy vibes, and we can’t help but dance along! We know how amazing Performance Unit performances can be, so we honestly can’t wait for a ‘Wave’ performance. If we get one, we will definitely live happily. This is also one of our favorite releases by the unit and is a perfect mixture of all the member’s releases in one track.
‘ (세븐틴) Same dream, same mind, same night’
Okay, but we love everything about the Vocal Units, well vocals. From the beginning of SEVENTEEN, they were on top of their game, but just continued to dramatically improve! We are in love with all the falsettos and harmonies that were done throughout the song. We also love the R&B feel in the track, along with the rest of the album.
With Your Choice, there were more than SEVENTEEN members involved in the process which made this EP even more special. Don’t mind us, we’ll just be over here overwhelmed with emotions about Your Choice as we stream it over and over again.
