JONGHYUN – THE COLLECTION: 'STORY OP.2'
Jonghyun unleashes his second compilation album, 'The Collection: Story Op.2.' This album contains 10 tracks, including five from his time on the 'Blue Night' broadcasts, and another five that are brand new. The Blue Night ones have been remastered before theofficial release. The SHINee singer wrote, composed and arranged all these himself, with a little help from production teams such as MonoTree, SCORE, and others.
The title track is "Lonely," a quiet ballad, featuring Girls' Generation leader Taeyeon. They do a beautiful job of creating the emotion of isolation and heartache. They do it tenderly, one manufacturing the expectation that something else will happen, and then the other singer joins the mix. I think one of the best parts of the song is when they match each others' timbres and duet together -- no longer lonely.
