EDITORS’ NOTES

TAEYANG is an R&B crooner at heart, but he gets more ambitious with the genre mashing and embraces more mature themes on his third solo album. The BIGBANG singer wraps his silky vocals in melancholy electronica on "WAKE ME UP," while punchy synthesizers help him make a case for immediate intimacy on "NAKED." But the impassioned vocal performance on sparse piano ballad "DARLING" shows why the best instrument at TAEYANG's disposal is, undoubtedly, his own voice.
