K-Pop A-Z Review: f(x) – Jet

One song. Every day. Alphabetical order.

Keep up with f(x)’s A-Z reviews here!


Jet (from Electric Shock – 2012)

Right from the start, Jet pulls no punches. We get a brilliant ascending introduction that quickly segues into a hard hitting verse. I love the electro beat during this segment. The melody is all over the place, with some pieces sticking better than others, but that adds to the chaotic nature of the track. Meanwhile, the chorus takes advantage of a unique vocal blend. It’s pitched high, but never uncomfortably so. And just as it feels like we might settle into some sort of consistent groove, that intro segment rears its head again and we’re back into ascending territory. Jet gains momentum as it reaches its climax, even if the ride may be turbulent at times. It’s a ton of fun.

  1. The verses are a little bit too grating for me – one single note repeated for half the verse is just not for me. It’s a shame because I really like the chorus!

    Sidenote: K/DA actually came out with an album. I don’t really like any of the bsides but I’ll Show You (feat. Twice) is the big exception!
