Song Review: Jo Yuri – Maybe

Jo Yuri - MaybeMaybe these Universe reviews are getting a little cliché. Maybe I’ve run out of ideas to make them fun and interactive. Maybe Maybe is just too unassuming to inspire a dynamic game or spoof. Maybe if the app gave us access to the full music video, I’d feel different?

Maybe Jo Yuri is actually suited to this style. Maybe this wistful, guitar-led pop reminds me of the 90’s. Maybe nostalgia is too powerful a force to overcome. Maybe I’ll give this a decent rating because it makes me feel warm and tingly. Maybe I’m just in a good mood because it’s summer and the sun is out.

Maybe I’ll forget this song after today. Maybe not?

Maybe these reviews are just giving the Universe app extra promo and encouraging the same business practices they’re meant to parody. Maybe I’ve been a pawn this entire time! Maybe I’m playing right into their hands!!!

Maybe I’ll just drop some other “Maybe” songs I’d rather listen to…

 Hooks 7
 Production 8
 Longevity 8
 Bias 7
 RATING 7.5

  1. Uuuuuuh. OST-land and maybe not in a good way.
    Maybe I’ll post Maybe by Kangta which maybe filled a bit of a void since my beloved Baekhyun is at war. And maybe singlehandledly turned a co-worker of mine onto k r&b.

  2. Tbh, I consider this one to be one of the strongest Universe tracks, along with The Boyz’s Drink It. Although the song ain’t outstanding, it’s still nice and sounds pleasing to the ears. I’d give it an 8.

    Nonetheless, #FreeKpopFromUniverse

  3. Maybe I remember this little wisp of a song from a very long time ago.
    Maybe I remember this little wisp of a song as being the near the end of the B side.
    I could be wrong, so wrong.

    • (Maybe I played the shit out of this album in my misspent youth, on vinyl of course. The first two cuts are cinematic and atmospheric.)

  4. I really like the OST vibes in songs so this is right up my alley. I really like this, her voice compliments the mellow instrumentals well
