Review by  on Seoulbeats.com

Clad in colorful striped suits, the boys leveraged a different kind of charisma, more towards the playful and flirtatious end. With a more mature image, the 10-membered act proves the depth of their abilities by challenging themselves with a comeback that’s a 360 spin from their previous releases.

1. “Critical Beauty”

Ceremony opens with title track “Critical Beauty,” which has obvious Pharell vibes, but everything about it is refreshingly different from their previous songs. Blasting off with a funky introduction and repetitive chant of “clap your hands, everybody,” it does a remarkable job in drawing the listeners in.

Drowned in playfulness, the song pulls us back to the ’50s rock-and-roll phenomenon with an Elvis Presley “Jailhouse Rock” riff, which then transitions into a hip-hop, percussion, and electro-swing fusion track. A characteristic upbeat piece, what I’m most impressed about is that it doesn’t sound like their previous song “Pretty Pretty,” which is the epitome of a typical cutesy summer bop.

“Critical Beauty” allows Pentagon to spotlight their vocals, with an affluent and bold belting of high notes from Hui and Jinho. If anything, I think we all can include that Pentagon has an extremely sturdy vocal line. However, the song sounded a tad messy at first and it would have definitely taken the cake if they had followed through more with the retro-rock influence.

... Ceremony is a testament to Pentagon’s versatility and musical development. It does absolute justice in proving that they can tackle differing musical approaches and concepts. The attempt to shift gears gives us a tease of what’s possibly awaiting on the horizon for Pentagon and I look forward to see what they have up their sleeves in the near future.
