Crayon Pop returned with "Uh-ee" and the only thing that pops up in my mind is "Uh." This is far from Crayon Pop's best release, but it's enough to satiate the die hard fans.
What makes Crayon Pop stand out is that they don't take themselves seriously while putting out catchy tunes. This allows the group to do bizarre concepts that "serious" K-Pop fans love to hate on. Crayon Pop is stan-worthy on the criteria alone. Crayon Pop reminds me of T-ara when T-ara is doing their upbeat, light-hearted songs instead of their dark songs accompanied by a 2 hour music video.
However, "Uh-ee" does nothing for me. The song was hyped, but the end result is akin to finding a Japanese porno to watch because you see a couple of hot chicks in the video preview just to find out that it's censored. "Uh-ee" is a throwback to the trot genre and succumbs to trot's major weakness: the whole song sounds the same. The chorus isn't differentiated enough from the verses and there isn't much of a bridge in the song. In many pop songs, you can point to whatever caught your ear, but it's hard to do that in "Uh-ee" since it's three minutes of the same thing.
The concept was a letdown along with the song. I normally enjoy seeing what Crayon Pop attempts to pull off, but this concept was a flounder. Again, they pulled it off in their previous songs and music videos, but it felt flat here.
While most Crayon Pop fans will tell you this is the greatest thing of 2014, I advise you to go back and listen to "Bing Bing" and "Dancing Queen" and hope Crayon Pop returns with a better song later this year.
