CNBLUE’s ‘Can’t Stop’ is having a long-run, getting continuous supports from many fans.According to daily charts for March 17th, CNBLUE’s ‘Can’t Stop’ was ranked 9th on Melon, 6th on Monkey3, 11th on GENIE, 12th on Mnet, 12th on Olleh Music, 15th on Naver Music, 18th on Soribada, 17th on Cy Music, 19th on Bugs, and 24th on DAUM.

However, the reason why CNBLUE needs to be the spotlighted is because they are competing with songs of their own compositions.

[Album Review] CNBLUE ‘Can’t Stop’ Churning Out Hits With Their 5th EP

CNBLUE comes back on the Korean music scene, sporting a more mature look and sound for their 5th mini album. Let’s take a closer look with this album review of ‘Can’t Stop’.

It has been a little over a year since CNBLUE released new tracks for their Korean fanbase leaving their fans waiting patiently for their return to Korea’s flourishing KPOP scene. In the meantime, the four member band has been busy literally touring the world on a musical tour around the globe. Their ‘BLUE MOON’ 2013-14 world tour took the young men all over Asia, Australia and North and South Amerca over a span of 10 months. CNBLUE made history being the first Korean band to tour around the world, for a young band of four, that’s a really big accomplishment yet even still, they don’t let one achievement cool off before they are onto the next hurtle to jump.

Finally having time to focus on their home-base, CNBLUE released their fifth extended play album ‘Can’t Stop’ and title track MV of the same name, on February 24th 2014 which topped the pre-order charts earning them the highest numbers on any of their previous albums in Korea. Since the enormous success of their last album, ‘RE:BLUE and its title track ‘I’m Sorry’, which was written and composed by group members lead vocalist Jung Yonghwa and lead guitarist Lee Jonghyun respectively, CNBLUE decided to come back strong with yet another self written album. This time around the band takes a different direction than expected for the fifth mini album and resurfaced with a British Rock tone as well as mature subject matter. Yonghwa takes the lead on album production as well as composing and writing the lyrics for five out of the six tracks, leaving Jonghyun in charge of his own unique composition.
