[Review] TXT – minisode 2: Thursday’s Child

Tomorrow X Together (TXT) is back with a brand new EP. This group had an incredible 2021, and really shook the music industry with the best angst vibe and rock style.

This time they are back with their fourth mini-album ‘minisode 2: Thursday’s Child‘. By the look of the teaser we are expecting even more teen angst and leather jackets. For this release all the members were involved in the writing of lyrics and composition, and we are just loving seeing how much more involved they become in every single comeback.

Let’s start checking the music in this release!

minisode 2: Thursday’s Child

Opening Sequence‘ opens this EP with alternative R&B and all the members being vocals kings. The instrumentation in this song is superb. The melody arrangement is absolutely beautiful, and the lyrical delivery really takes this song to the next level with its rawness and darkness.

The title track ‘Good Boy Gone Bad‘ takes over with a hip-hop/rock mix and a dope style. The vocal arrangement in pre-chorus is just so smooth and amazing, I loved the concept and vibe of this song. It’s angsty but at the same time trendy and fun to listen to, the “I Like Them Bad” with the evil laugh, is going to stay in my head for a while. This single is just EPIC.

For the music video as usual we get stunning visuals, but this time with a more mature concept. Their acting is fantastic, the outfits are on point, and the set, camera work and storyline of this MV are just super dope. Watch it below.

We go soft with ‘Trust Fund Baby‘ and its ballad/indie-pop style. The piano melody in this single is beautiful, and the vocals out of this world. TXT’s talent to change genres and completely kill it in all of them never stops to amaze me, they are just so talented.

Acoustic guitar takes over in ‘Lonely Boy (The tattoo on my ring finger)‘. With this song we get a sub-unit with Huening Kai and Yeonjun. I am obsessed with the rap verses in this song. This track took a more minimalistic approach but its R&B style mixed with the harmonisations and ad-libs, made it such a smooth listen.

Last on this release is ‘Thursday’s Child Has Far To Go‘. Closing it off with retro synth pop and a lot of style and also giving us a new sub-unit made of Soobin, Beomgyu and Taehyun. I loved the vibe of this track, it was refreshing and cool. Definitely a memorable and unique way to close a solid release that just expanded TXT’s musical identity even more.

TXT once again released a solid mini-album, with songs for every mood. Make sure to listen to this release here.
