SISTAR's Touch & Move mini album review

sistar touch&move

After their last album Give It To Me wowed me in 2013, I had high hopes for SISTAR's newest release this year. While this summer EP doesn't quite manage to top their previous effort's awesomeness, it still contains some jams. "Touch My Body" is a certified earworm, while "Naughty Hands" feat. Verbal Jint with its laid-back charm is reminiscent of "The Way You Make Me Melt" feat. Geeks, one of my favorites from SISTAR's previous album. The intro track "Wow" would've been better if it wasn't all Hyolyn—she has her solo releases for that after all. "Ok Go!" is not that bad but half of it sounds like a poor attempt at a 2NE1 song, while the token ballad "But I Love U" doesn't really do it for me somehow. The mini album ends on a high note with "Sunshine", an upbeat track which fits the summer theme very well. An honorable mention goes to the acoustic version of "Touch My Body" which features guitarist Ahn Jung Jae (watch the official video here). A pity it's not actually included in this record. 8/10

Favorites: Touch My Body, 나쁜손 Naughty Hands (feat. 버벌진트), Sunshine
Okay ones: Ok Go!, Wow
Kinda meh: But I Love U
