DBSK (Tohoshinki) – Superstar


Minho and Leeteuk think otherwise

The newest Japanese release by Korean super band DBSK, Superstar, is simply put, an ugly song. The definition of an ugly song* : an ugly song doesn’t do justice to either the singer or the listener, it is usually harmful to the delicate ears of children and elders and it has a lifespan of up to 3 weeks untill it disintegrates as if it never existed. Or that is what it should happen in order for the singers to be released from the shame of having promoted that horrendous piece of shit. And also to release them from Hell’s 7th circle.

Superstar reminds me of the atrocities that are being composed year after year for the Eurovision contest. Actually I’m not that far from the truth with this comparison because the composer is Swedish, a long time acquaintance of SM.
And, on top of all, the base sampling of the songs is so similar to Lady Gaga’s Pokerface that even I feel ashamed.
It doesn’t help either that the only live performance I saw had the worst vocals I’ve seen in kpop world (I know Japanese music programs  have some problems with the sound system, but this is no excuse for the bad quality of the performance ). I was used to Changmin’s screams crackings from time to time, but this was just too much. It just isn’t a soliciting song, why would you dare turn it into a wreck ?
The B side track, I Don’t Know isn’t as ugly as the first one because it’s too forgettable, too similar to other DBSK songs, too plain…
Final rating : 3.0/10 ?? I think so…
