Monsta X Makes Beautiful Boring

Monsta X is one of those groups that Ive been hearing about since their debut, but one Ive never taken the time to sit down and listen to. So here we are with my introduction to them with, Beautiful the title track to the conclusion of their The Clan series.

The most obvious thing that stands out on the track is the beat. Its so fast and hard-hitting that anyone who loves bass will immediately fall in love. The breakdowns after the chorus do a good job of breaking up the song, and keep it from getting too overwhelming to enjoy. The rap and vocals are surprisingly well balanced throughout.
