Let Out the Beast Cont’d

One of the songs in my favorite part of the EXO’LuXion concert, the EDM section. I mean come on, they looked good and Chanyeol was doing the damn thing in that DJ booth. It was lit!!!

I had to debate with myself for a moment which version of the song I wanted to analyze or if I should just do both. But my job decided for me today it seems since I had to work overtime…….

**Warning: Remember, this an aural based analyses. If you’ve read my past analyses you already know how I fell.**cough** Admin Aqua wants a full score. I’ll even settle for a chart **cough**

Anyway, Let Out the Beast gets you in the mood to go out and rave. All I see in my mind’s eye are glow sticks, arms in the air and sweaty bodies. The mood is set from the initial digital audio effect (not going into detail about them because Admin Aqua is exhausted). Soon the beat drops in the bass and a claps effect is introduced. Later in the verse, a distorted high pitched effect that descends the scale is included as well as a short distorted electronic horn reminiscent effect. Everything goes haywire once they reach the section after the following.

[Sehun]
뒤돌아서 자 now step! Step!
dwidoraseo ja now step! Step!
turn around and now step step

The vocal on this track are really good. I have no complaints for the vocal line. The harmonies are so subtle you might miss it. For example, in the transition area that precedes the chorus.The pitches are on top of each other and can be hard to miss.

EXO-M Version

[All]
追光目光全都
zhui guang mu guang quan dou
The spotlight and everyone’s eyes

聚集在我身上
ju ji zai wo shen shang
are all gathered on me

表演太炫让你
biao yan tai xuan rang ni
If my performance is too dazzling

不敢眨眼
bu gan zha yan
it’ll make you afraid to blink

EXO-K Version

[All]
무대 위로 조명이 나를 비추면
mudae wiro jomyeongi nareul bichumyeon
When the lighting illuminates me

나를 보는 사람 모두 빠져
nareul boneun saram modu ppajyeo
All the people looking at me fall for me

무대 위로 조명이 나를 비추면
mudae wiro jomyeongi nareul bichumyeon
When the lighting illuminates me

눈빛 하나까지 놓치지마
nunbit hanakkaji nohchijima
Don’t miss any of my gazes
