The last time I listened to Reflex was their 2014 release, ‘My All‘, and ‘Let’s Burn‘ continues their melodic pop-rock style in a full-length form. Even though Reflex’s style isn’t anything new, it’s the energy that the band has in their recording that makes listening fun. The music is solid with engaging songs that cross between ballad-esque verses and pop-punk choruses.
“까맣게” is a good introduction song to the band because it features pretty much all the elements you’ll hear from their other songs. When listening to Reflex, one of the things you’ll notice is how full and deep the music sounds like, and that’s one of the great things about ‘Let’s Burn’. It’s a style that most people will be familiar with, but Reflex have harnessed the arrangements to make addictive songs.
“소년” is a slower, emotional song that uses quieter verses before jumping into a big melodic rock chorus. The vocals are sung in half-time to the instrumentals, and reminded me a lot of the pop-rock ballad style songs of pop-punk bands in the US during the late-1990s.
As one of the few melodic rock bands that I know, Reflex have possessed the genre well. They craft great songs, and ‘Let’s Burn’ is a perfect presentation for the band. It may not get your attention on the first listen, but there are plenty of standout songs.
