[MV & Album Review] ASTRO -- 'Dream Part.01'

Following up their successful 'Winter Dream' album, ASTRO is primed for a summer comeback with 'Dream Part.01!' There's eight fresh tracks on this EP, including the title track "Baby."

Starting with a synth booping happily, "Dreams Come True" is a club-banger, although done in a completely happy upbeat style, rather than anything forceful. The boys voices come through clearly on this one, particularly Moonbin's, though I love JinJin's raps on the track too. The song almost has a cute feel to it, like you can almost see ASTRO making heart signs and such while performing it.
