[MV & Album Review] Seventeen -- 'Al1

4. Swimming Fool (Performance Team)

8. Check-In (Remastering) (CD Only)

Seventeen is releasing its own special sequence of albums called the 2017 Seventeen Project. The new mini-album 'Al1' ("alone") kicks off this venture with 6 new songs, and two special CD only tracks. This is their fourth EP to date.

"Don't Wanna Cry" is much more a soft pop tune than anything else, and doesn't pop as much as I would expect for a title track. I was hoping for a jam, but this just left me cold. There are parts I like, but the soft voices were off-putting. I'm not sure what I was hoping for, but this just sounded flat to my ears.
