Track Assessment: RM (BTS) – Come Again To Me

RM (BTS) - Come Back To MeFor awhile, there was some query whether or not BTS members would enlist within the army, given the breadth of their achievements and the dear gentle energy they’d developed for South Korea. The enlistments ended up occurring, however the music nonetheless flows throughout their hiatus as RM turns into the most recent to launch “new” materials with out having the ability to actively market it.

Come Again To Me is a pre-release for his upcoming album and is sensible as an enlistment-era observe. Unmoored from its music video, the music is a prolonged six-and-a-half minute sluggish burn. It’s unhappy to say, however you possibly can match three TikTok-prepared pop songs into this timeframe. Come Again To Me doesn’t sound like a “single” or “comeback” or “title observe,” and there’s one thing admirable about that. In any case, this group has earned the best to launch no matter they need and so they have a (literal) military of followers who will help each transfer they make.

This can be a ponderous observe, and one that may probably spawn a lot evaluation amongst listeners. I can embrace that sort of evaluation sometimes, however first a music has to seize maintain of me in a visceral approach. After an almost two-minute construct of halted phrasing and delicate guitar, Come Again To Me lastly lays down its drums. That is the second the place it grabs me. The groove is free and ethereal, begging for a extra attention-grabbing set of melodies to tease out its full potential. This phase doesn’t final lengthy and we’re quickly returned to a hushed, spoken-word verse. It feels virtually improvisational at instances, like a laid-back jam session. I respect it greater than I prefer it, however I’m curious what RM has in retailer for the accompanying album.
