BLAQ%Ver, released on 3.21.12, is the repackaged mini-album of 100% Ver.
「BLAQ% (Theme) (feat. 이단옆차기)」 plays a techno beat as a female voice says “Music Boys Live in Absolute Quality” twice before she says “MBLAQ, BLAQ%” a couple of times. A male voice then comes in to say some stuff then the electronica and autotune comes in the second half.
The title song is 「100%」, starting off with a low announcer voice (um?) and autotuned ad-libs. A heavy synthesizer starts off the song coupled with some electronica sounds as the boys sing in autotune. It has a strange tone to it, but it is interesting, though it’s mostly a club/dance song, kinda reminiscent of Y maybe? I think it probably uses some stuff from the BLAQ% Theme too, but I’m not too sure.
Last of the new songs is 「사랑이 온다 (Beautiful)」, which has a piano instrumental and a weird… brass sound? The boys start up with a cute verse as they sing, “You’re so beautiful,” in a mid-paced verse. The brass is still bothering me. The chorus is pretty much similar to the verses, but has the main vocal (GO probably) harmonizing slightly with the boys backing him up. It’s cute as they end, “You are my angel,” before Mir’s rap comes in. It’s a really cute song.
Well, there were only two real new songs from this repackage, but I think they’re pretty okay. I like Beautiful, not so much 100% since it’s more geared towards a club/dance sound. Though that brass sound in Beautiful is bothering me so much!
