Review

S.M. The Ballad is a male vocal group consisting of Super Junior’s Kyuhun, Shinee’s Jonghyn, TRAX’s Jay and newcomer Jino. They are described as being a ballad group and they certainly live up to that billing.

Much of what is on this EP has a Pop/R&B crossover kind of sound and you figure that maybe 4 slow jams would be kind of pushing the tolerance of what people can take but these slickly produced songs prove that it can be done.

I found that the songs that had a bit more of an R&B flavor (Hot Times, Don’t Lie) stood out than the typical pop ballads that you can hear from just about any K-Pop vocal group or soloists (Miss You, Another Day). They just have more of an edge I guess.

Whatever your taste, S.M. The Ballad is definitely worth checking out. If this project is indeed something permanent hopefully they get a full length album sometime in the future.
