    So funny story, I wrote the melody to this song on a whiteboard at my college and my theory professor listened to it. He pointed out that in Funk style, sixteenth notes are swung but eighths are not--which could explain a few rhythm differences, especially in the bridge, sung by Hyungwon and Minhyuk. Which would also mean that the song is actually subdivided more intensely than we think and that the fast triplets in the chorus are not sixteenth notes but thirty-second notes.

    Monbebes stan legends. Facts only.

    Also, this song really grew on me after a few listens. Yes perhaps it could have built up more between the first and second verses > choruses, but the real buildup is the joint rap part by Joohoney and I.M and then the descant at the end by Kihyun.

    Well seen many comments about their first impression to this song made me think that I'm one of the few people that actually like this song on the first listen. I actually prefer this over Shoot out as title tracks but I prefer the bside songs of where are you album better because I'm a sucker for Monsta x slower kind off songs so I actually miss that on the are you there álbum but despite that all those two albums are just great! I am so proud that people was streaming aligator when it came out! But anyway thanks for reacting more of monsta x, I would love to see more reactions of them in the future to maybe newer or older songs :3

    this... has a lot of high note. the sound of the music is pretty high, it’s hard to sing😅😅😭😭😂

    SIN XZERELY 3 months ago +1

    I feel like the song was refrained (?), if that's the right word to describe it, from "escalating" because the K-POP in S.Korea prefers more gentle(?) music instead of extremely heavy drops/dubstep/trap.
    That aside, MONSTA X really captures my taste in music really well; That's why they are my ultimate K-POP group. Their debut song- Trespass is still my personal favorite because it was so powerful, both as a debut song and musically.

    i may not be able to understand the music theories but i can tell it was quite a critique and you expected more because i feel the same way, like, i was really anticipating it a lot but i ended up feeling something is missing. I didn't even repeat it as much during Shoot Out (i legitimately still play Shoot Out until now because that's The Banger™) and i feel kinda bad since they always work hard for their comebacks but i feel like i'm not supportive enough as a fan for this comeback. 😂 Nevertheless I'm truly grateful that you've decided to react to their song and give your honest opinions! I look forward to your other reactions to other songs too 💕

    Hakuna Matata 3 months ago

    If monsta x would have, _after i.m and joohoney back and forth rapping,_ brought some of that heavy bass like they did in beautiful and shoot out, It would have made this song more epic. I still really like the song but i agree that i wished they would have done more because the build up of that rap verse was amazing and it was their best back and forward rapping (to me) that they have done and i LOVE when artists do that and monsta x keeps delivering. Thats why theyre my ultimate bias group

    • Sarah Davis
      Sarah Davis 3 months ago

      @Marlies Benter Maybe to you and me, but not to Umu and Sean. So it's still a valid critique even if we don't feel the same way.

    • Marlies Benter
      Marlies Benter 3 months ago

      @Sarah Davis It stands on it's own just fine.

    • Sarah Davis
      Sarah Davis 3 months ago +1

      @Marlies Benter To me a song should be able to stand on it's own. Kpop or not. So if they feel that the build up is missing something in the song, that's a valid critique. And they just as often don't talk about the music video.

    • Marlies Benter
      Marlies Benter 3 months ago +1

      @Sarah Davis I've been watching this channel since the beginning so I know it's about music, but it's about K-pop, which is music +, and they often comment on all the other stuff... otherwise they'de be making radio or do the lyric video. The fact is that the build up is deliberately made in the images of the MV.

    • Sarah Davis
      Sarah Davis 3 months ago +2

      This channel focuses on the music itself separate from the choreography and the music video, so don't expect many comments on the music video or choreography - they probably noticed it. And personally, since people do listen to music separate from the music video or a dance practice, the song itself should not rely on the music video or the choreography to aide in its build up. So if the song itself doesn't build up enough for someone, that's a fair critique of the song.

  • Lovely Lee
    Lovely Lee 3 months ago +6

    I agree that Alligator felt a little lacking. When I first heard it, it didn’t really catch onto me as Shoot out or their previous titles tracks had. I guess it was because the We Are Here comeback was cut short on promotions and whatnot for preparation towards the tour I guess... no one hate me for this... but that the power went down a little for this comeback musically. Visually it was powerful, music not so much. Can’t wait for the medley and your album reaction!

      I agree and I've been a Monbebe for 3yrs now.

    Hi. Yall N E E D to react to Hyolyn's music. If I could give suggestions I would say her song Closer, Say I love you is a Sistar song but was written by her and Crying too but she co-wrote it, and Dally is a great song it was produced by Gray but Hyolyn made her own lyrics for her verses and the melody so ya. And if yall want a song showing her vocal prowess even more other than artistry then listen to And Then ft Yang Da Il. As a huge ass fan of this channel PLS I AM KINDLY BEGGING YALL :))) you guys poke at and disect songs and their individual sounds in so much detail which shows how nice it is to just simply appreciate good music and I really love that. Youll be pleasantly surprised I promise. Anyways thank you guys for the content u bring us 😊 stan Monsta x 💖🤙
