Rainbow’s “Prism” EP review


Artist: Rainbow
Album: “Prism”
Label: DSP Media
Year: 2016


I was going through my collection of KPop music to see what albums I haven’t listened to in a very long time because especially groups from the second generation. I went through my Rainbow albums and found out that I actually had this EP called “Prism”. I thought I only had both parts of “Rainbow Syndrome”, but it turns out I had more music from this DSP girl group, so I decided to give it a listen to relive the memories of this group.


Rainbow maintains some of the catchiness in terms of music from their “Rainbow Syndrome” albums with such songs like “Whoo”, “Black and White”, and “Click!” while adding a touch of R&B with “Eye Contact”. Most artists usually start off an album with their single and/or their best song, but Rainbow opted to start it off with a ballad which is a rare unless the artist does an all ballad album.


This extended play unfortunately falls flat. Their best songs on this album feel like the leftovers from “Rainbow Syndrome” which isn’t a good thing. The songs feel like they have to be skipped and were not memorable. It felt bland, unoriginal, and uninspired. It lacked the spirit and energy of their previous album releases.


I kind of realize why I forgot that I had this album. I had no attachment to any of the songs and maybe listened to it twice at max. I had to force myself to make it through the album even though it’s just an EP. I gave this one a 2/5 because it wasn’t any good whereas most KPop albums usually get a 3.5 or higher. It’s a forgettable album, and there’s no rebounding from it which is what happened as Rainbow disbanded after the release of this EP.

Overall rating: 2/5
