Winner finally made a comeback, after almost a year and a half. In that time span, YG promoted Big Bang and iKON very well. My friends and I felt how unfair was it for Winner to only get two songs at their debut, whereas iKON got a total of six songs. But now Winner is getting equal promotion and that brings so much joy and relief to all Inner Circles.
The album is EXIT and the only released the E series this month. Three MVs released together- Sentimental, I'm Young and Baby Baby.

SENTIMENTAL:
One of the groovy and catchy songs of Winner. Personally, out of the three I love this song the best- whether it comes to the music video or the song, even the lyrics and the look of the members.

The lyrics of the song tell us how they have become sentimental after their break-up. How different things and their surroundings remind them of how alone they are. Instances like their room seems bigger than before because he is alone, or how they are careful not to get drunk and post stupid things about their break- up.

I wonder whose idea was it, in the company to come up with such a beautiful concept for a music video. It is simply beautiful. The mv is shot from the bird's eye- view where we see the members lying down in different room and how each room has something which makes them cry. In all the rooms, somewhere or the other there is a couple making out and them looking at them.
The sentimental feelings comes and hits you straight. Apart from that there is a small dance step to groove to.

The members look amazing, except Mino. He doesn't look bad, but well, he looks funny. Seungyoon and Seunghoon look so cute. Taehyun looks so diva, with a choker. But Jinwoo stole my heart- I couldn't stop staring at him.

This song right now is my ringtone.


BABY BABY:
The next song to discuss is Baby Baby. I was waiting most for this song, thanks to the awesome cover which Lee Hi posted.

In this music video, Winner are themselves. This is song is how their life now is all about the fame, and drinks and girls. There is no quality in their life and they are missing their loved once, as they said, it could be anyone close- lover, parents, friends. It is after they have become famous. Seunghoon and Seungyoon meet up and get wasted. Taehyun is home all alone, Mino is seen with a prostitute, Jinwoo is also drinking alone.

This mv has a lot of adult scenes. There are bar scenes, drinking scenes. And the best of all is Mino kissing the girl. When I saw that scene, the only thing going on in my mind was how the hell did they shoot that scene. The camera-work is great again, especially how well and carefully Mino's scene has been shot. We see the members in a very classy look.

At the end of this mv, Taehyun is seen leaving to someplace. His story continues to I'm Young.

Anyways, the song is probably second in my fav track list. I'm Young sometimes takes its place, though. The song has a little raw feel to it, especially Seungyoon's voice and Jinwoo's voice. The rest were fine. But still this song cannot match up to Sentimental.


I'M YOUNG:
Now this song is a pretty sad song. Taehyun leaves for France, to meet his ex-girlfriend. He still has his promise ring on. When the mv begins they have some candid conversations, about his hair, and stuff like that. But soon they shift to the topic of him "selling his voice." We assume, he left her to become famous.

The mv gives us a glimpse of their past and their present. We see how beautiful their past was and how they were a beautiful couple, but Taehyun soon starts drinking and things get bitter from there. The girl then meets someone else in a party, and Taehyun is seen leaving next. After all of that, the fiance or husband of the girl arrives and Taehyun is hiding in the closet. From the closet, Taehyun sees the husband kissing the girl's tummy. The girl was pregnant.

Now the question that the mv leaves us with is whose child is that.

The mv has some really good making out scenes. On seeing those, I actually started missing my ex. Taehyun's acting also has improved since the drama he did last. The mv and it's lyrics are sad enough to bring tears in your eyes. The girl did a great job too.

The song clearly is a conflict between the mind and the heart and dreams and reality. This song clashes with Baby Baby for the second place. And well, Taehyun really won my heart with his voice. As a solo, the song is too good. It captures the correct feels in your mind.


Another song that I would mention from the album is Pricked which is by Taehyun and Mino. That song is amazing. I was so hooked to it, before Sentimental released. You guys really have to check it out. The song has the ability to leave you breathless. It is the best song in the album.
