It feels like we’ve been waiting forever, but FOR X, we finally have Omega X‘s first full-length album, Story Written in Music!
We first got news about the comeback about a month ago, and since then, we’ve been patiently waiting for it. And while we waited, we got refreshing teasers of what was to come, and oh boy, did it elevate all of our excitement!
[apple_music_ad artist=”Omega X”]
Story Written in Music is the group’s first full-length album, and we just knew we would like it, and we were right. Omega X gave us 13, you heard that right, 13 amazing tracks. But the 13th one is CD exclusive, so this is us telling you to get the album. If that does convince you, the 13th track, aka ‘FOR BABY,’ also has FOR X credited as a lyricist. Look at y’all go. And if that one didn’t either, member Jaehan has officially been made the leader of Omega X!
Okay, so let’s first talk about the title track. ‘PLAY DUMB’ is so refreshing, it’s like a breath of fresh air. It also has a different sound than their past tracks, so we can’t help but keep pressing replay. The choreography, which you can see in the MV, gives off theater kid vibes. If you know us, you know we’re big fans of it. And with choreographer Choi Young Jun at the forefront, we can happily understand why. The group has also been showing off this catchy, bright song, and you can tell Omega X loves performing it. Which makes us love it more.
Now, we’re not just gonna bring you here and not mention the other tracks. Here are our other three favorite tracks from Story Written in Music.
We would be lying if we said we didn’t love ‘VENUS’ right from the start. It actually has been set on replay throughout us writing this article because come on, the backtrack, bpm, along with their vocals, has us hyped. ‘VENUS’ is just a perfect track wrapped in a nice little bow. And you wouldn’t want to miss their sweet vocals. If you loved ‘ACTION’ from LOVE ME LIKE, you’ll love ‘VENUS.’
‘AIRPLANE’ has a different opening than the other tracks on our list, but we still love it the same. This track sounds like the group had a blast while recording it, and we feel like we were right there with them, especially at the 2:50 mark. It is also the perfect track to play with your K-POP-loving and non-K-POP friends alike. We would recommend really any of their more R&B tracks to check out if you liked ‘AIRPLANE.’
If you thought, “whew, that party sound in ‘VENUS’ can’t be beaten,” well, we have news for you, ‘TAKE’EM ALL’ tops the cake at having the perfect party beat. It’s loud, fast, and very full from start to finish. Our favorite part has to be the build-up it’s just too good. So, if you loved ‘VAMOS,’ like we know you did, be prepared to jam to ‘TAKE’EM ALL.’
*Sigh* We honestly can’t help but love all the tracks so here are some honorary mentions *drumroll*: ‘BOUNCE WITH ME,’ ‘CONTROL,’ and ‘LOVE.’ To make it easier for you, here are two places to stream Omega X’s Story Written in Music: Apple Music, and Spotify.
