FT Island-Bad Woman MV Eng sub+download

FT Island came out with their first MV featuring their new member, though honestly I couldn’t tell him apart from the rest of the boys(I mean, you can only get so many variations on the thin shaggy-haired angsty-looking Asian boy before it all starts to blur together – especially as they’re all about the same height).

I like the video, although the thing about FT Island is that a) each song individually is good and b) all their songs sound the same. This is the same sort of emo-screaming song they’ve done a million times before…which doesn’t necessarily erase all its value. Just some. (I could get really snarky with this but I”ll avoid out of love for them).

And one thing I will give them: angst may be their thing, but at least they do it well.

I like the effect of the frames sliding past each other, but it’s under-used – should be more dramatic. Also, if she’s such a bad woman, why is she crying so much about leaving him? Shouldn’t she not care?

FT Island…consider me an official convert

This is what really converted me, though I’ve been flirting with them for a while now –

Which was forthwith cemented by a good listen to their newest album, the lovely (and unusually imaginatively titled) Colorful Sensibility, which can be downloaded here.

They’re pretty-

and their music is, to my surprise, quite decent – easy on the ears with strong vocals and genuine musical authenticity. I suggest FTIslandluv for further exploration/downloads.
