NCT Dreams Goes “BOOM” with New Mini-Album
NCT Dream has returned with their third mini-album! Titled We Boom, NCT Dream brings yet another colorful and fun album for fans to enjoy, and it does not disappoint. Despite being the younger NCT unit, NCT Dream does not fail to deliver a sharp and edgy, yet refreshing album, much like their brother groups.
As the main track off the album, “BOOM” is a funky EDM-pop dance track that is a perfect fit for the summer. Despite its gritty sound, “BOOM” delivers an addictive beat that ensures this song will be on repeat. With former member Mark having graduated from NCT Dream, Jaemin, Jeno, and Jisung do a great job in taking over for rap as they each get their moment to shine in “BOOM.” Let’s not forget about the vocal line of Haechan, Renjun, and Chenle coming to the forefront of the song, further impressing with their vocal range and ability.
Both the song and the music video break away from the youthful image that NCT Dream is known to have and shows that the members want to be seen in a more mature light. For those who have followed the group since their debut, NCT Dream has definitely blossomed into mature young adults, but they are still continuing to explore their youth. The music video heavily features the choreography for “BOOM” but also gives a nice balance with featuring each member in different, aesthetically pleasing sets. “BOOM” shows how far NCT Dream has come from their “Chewing Gum” days, as they have broken away from the young school boy concept. Through and through, “BOOM” is pleasing to all of the senses.
The rest of the mini-album consists of a blend of hip-hop and pop songs that fits with the summer season. There is a song for everyone on the album, from gritty and hard to their campfire/happy vibes. NCT Dream brings another solid album to the mix and it is well worth the listen! Currently, NCT Dream is promoting their latest on music shows, so make sure to support them by catching their performances and listening to their album!
