Album: “My Way” EP
Label: AVEX Entertainment Inc.
After a few releases in 2017 and 2018 with music videos, singles, and an album, E-Girls are back with more music with “My Way” featuring guest appearances from Fire Ball, Mighty Crown, and PKCZ. In this release, they make a sharp turn towards a brand new sound many fans would not be familiar with.
This time, there are guest appearances which is rare for E-Girls since they do have a lot members. I do applaud them for going towards a new direction in terms of sound with a lot of reggae, reggaeton, and other Caribbean influences to help with the experimentation. Both songs, “My Way” and “Let’s Get High” both have the implement new influences to give the eleven girls a shakeup.
I really wasn’t feeling it. I wanted to like it, but I felt like they weren’t the stars of their own songs. It really felt like Fire Ball, Mighty Crown, and PKCZ featuring E-Girls instead of the other way around. Although I applaud them for trying out this brand new concept, it’s best for them not to try this route again as it doesn’t suit them at all.
I wouldn’t say it was bad in any possible way, but it wasn’t necessarily my cup of tea. Let’s just say that when it comes to finding what songs from E-Girls I want to listen to, I wouldn’t seek this release first. Although this concept wasn’t for them, at least they tried it. I hope they go back to what was working for them previously or try something that may suit their talents a bit more. It’s probably best to leave the reggae vibe to former E-Girls member, Dream Shizuka and her current group, Dance Earth Party.
Overall rating: 3.5/5
