Pristin Give Whiplash In Schxxl Out

Pristin is one of the more notable rookie girl groups of 2017. While their actual debut was a bit lackluster, they had enough other factors, such as two former I.O.I. members, and several writing and composition credits to keep interest and hope high. Now returning with their sophomore EP, Schxxl Out, Pristin has another chance to impress audiences. And if there’s one thing Schxxl Out does, it’s make an impression.

It’s immediately clear that Schxxl Out was not conceived as one EP. It is two distinct halves put together in flagrant disregard of anything resembling cohesion. To be fair, a certain lack of musical cohesion is par for the course in K-pop, but Schxxl Out is in a league of its own. The genre shift is so sudden and so total that it left me bewildered every time I listened.

[MV & Album Review] PRISTIN – 'SCHXXL OUT / We Like'

Following up on their debut 'Hi! PRISTIN,' PRISTIN has come out with a sizzling comeback to heat up your summer. The title is 'SCHXXL OUT,' and their concept is skipping school. There are five tracks on their second EP, and this time the girls had a hand in writing the lyrics and composing these songs. 

"WE ARE PRISTIN" starts out with a cheerleader chant, which seems to be popular right now. Fortunately that awkward beginning transitions into a pretty good tune. I like the urgent feel of the melody, and the vocal flourishes in the pre-chorus are awesome.
