ONEUS: Raise Us

Oneus debuted back in January with Valkyrie and quickly became one of my new top groups, the title track was amazing and the whole mini album was solid. So here we are with their first comeback and 2nd mini album, Raise Us with title track Twilight.
How will it stand against their debut?
Here are my first thoughts of listening to the songs:

Intro: Time – A very calm and catchy intro that I wish was a full track but it just less than 2 minutes long. Nevertheless, a nice showcase for some vocals and a great set up for the album.
My rating: 4/5

Twilight – Going straight into the title track, which is my favourite song from this album. Not quite matching my love for Valkyrie but close enough, I love the pre-chorus and the chorus itself is very powerful and catchy. It felt like a great song for all members to show off their vocal abilities, I especially love Leedo’s deep voice on this track.
My rating: 4/5

English Girl – This one is cute, and caught my attention from the title 😀 A light hearted airy summer feel, and I’m sure they can still speak more English than I can speak Korean so don’t be sorry.
My rating: 3/5

BingBing – Keeping with the upbeat summer vibe, this one is very catchy and I’m a fan of the whistles. Not a song that particularly stands out for me though.
My rating: 3/5

White Night – Now, I’m typically not a fan of ballads or slower songs, this is one of the rare exceptions where the ballad is actually one of my favourite tracks on the album. The mixture and variety of the members voices mix so smoothly, it’s definitely a song to sway to and the lyrically meaning is very deep and sweet.
My rating: 4/5

Now – I’m always more drawn to upbeat songs so this one was a win for me straight away. It’s definitely a summer party track and I love it, although the sound isn’t really a unique one.
My rating: 4/5

In conclusion: I love the consistent theme and concept of this group! A solid follow up to their debut, overall I still prefer their debut album but I think they did such a good job with this comeback and I’m definitely going to continue to support and follow them in the future.

My current song ranking is: Twilight, Now, White Night, BingBing, English Girl, Time.

My overall rating: 4/5
