AB6IX (에이비식스) – Blind For Love: MV Review

For our added feature of reviews, we will include AB6IX, with their third comeback titled Blind For Love.

As AB6IX is one of the boy groups who immediately were recognized – though being a rookie group – it’s best to review them.

(Side Note: Congratulations to them on their win on this comeback!)

Review as whole

Particular interest lies on the music. I liked the raps being played to keep the consistency of the song. While it was not as pumped-up as it was with Hollywood and Breathe, it was equally exciting. The chorus plays steady beats, borrowing some mini-shouts from Breathe’s chorus.

Blind For Love presents orbiting globe at start of video, representing being part of world. Fire represents burning desire for love. A member being blindfolded best describes the title. From these things, the message can be understood as follows:

How do we tell that we are blinded with love? If we keep blind on her shortcomings or mistakes. If we always use passion when loving. And finally, if we deem him/her as the one who rules our world.

Review by others

KPopReviewed told that their previous track Breathe set the bar so high for other rookies to beat. This time, the Blind For Love follows the same track even if phased differently. While clinging to Breathe, it lost the “wow factor” Breathe and Hollywood possessed. Other aspects like visuals and appearance were good enough.

TheBiasList also agreed that their song Breathe was one of the most impressive. This time, Blind For Love served to continue the momentum. Unlike previous track, it does not falter but instead collects the necessary energy needed to keep going. While their strong points were on melodies, the verses are forgettable. Viewed overall, the song was enjoyable the whole time, and it is destined well to be played in the long run.
