Finally, The English Debut! Oct. 19 2011
By S. R. Hughes - Published on Amazon.com
If you are already an SNSD fan, this song might take a few plays to get you attached, but soon you will find yourself singing it in the shower. It's hook is the predictable "Bring the Boys Out" which isn't as strong or immediately catchy as some of their best songs. But there are some unexpected shifts in the song which keep it fresh for the whole track.

The English version of the lyrics are pretty kitsch. They do maintain a positive and upbeat feeling that has always drawn me to their music. It makes it pretty easy to learn the lyrics when you can more or less guess what they are going to say next. For me, this doesn't take away from the enjoyment of the song, but I can see how some fans might be disappointed that they lyrics have been so "Americanized." I recommend checking out the Korean version of the song which lyrics (from what I've read in translation) are a bit less predictable.

The vocals have been treated quite a bit which personally, I feel these girls don't need. However, this is for a western pop market and that sound is in right now. Combined with the style of the lyrics, it's pretty clear they are going for a pop dance hit with this song. There's not very strong accents in their English that I notice except a bit with Sunny (I can forgive her since she's SO cute in the video ><).

Best part? If you happen to speak English and not Korean or Japanese, this is one Girls Generation song you'll actually know what the words mean while you're singing!

If you have never heard of Girls Generation and you are a pop/dance fan you will probably enjoy shaking your hips to this one.

GG Takeover! Jan. 17 2012
By K. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I love this album! They seemed to want to try a bit of everything with this album, from quirky and happy to ballads to confident dance music. My favorite songs are The Boys, Vitamin, and Trick. At $9, give this group a chance and help them towards their success in the US! Any fan of Kpop will enjoy at least one song on this album.

Bring The Boys out! Oct. 19 2011
By jo1 - Published on Amazon.com
Girls' Generation is the "it" group these days. This song is pretty amazing, and the girls (and everyone else behind the scenes) have done a superb job with it! I'm totally looking forward to more from them!

America, meet Girls Generation. Girls Generation, America. Jan. 20 2012
By MusicalWarrior - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Do you like catchy upbeat feel-good music? How about hard hitting club tunes with pulse-pounding beats? How about gorgeous heart-wrenching lyrical ballads? Now, how would you like an entire album filled with the above for a mere nine bucks? If this interests you, stop reading this review and purchase this album immediately... Just remember to emotionally prepare yourself to fall in love nine times at once.

Not their greatest work May 10 2012
By Snap Twist - Published on Amazon.com
I know we all all want GG to be successful overseas, but I cannot lie: This isn't anywhere close to their best album.

There are good to great songs on here (Oscar, Lazy Girl, Telepathy, Top Secret), but they're in the minority. Even their title song is merely...okay. It's catchy, but it has that same tinny, generic sound that I hear on the radio everyday. Basically, I would (and did) listen to it a couple times, then never play it again. Also, you don't need six remixes of a mediocre song. Put this in comparison to their Japanese debut CD- Now THAT'S how you introduce yourself! And as an American debut, it doesn't really hold up. I can see what they were trying to do with 'The Boys,' even if it wasn't amazing, but what is 'My J' and 'Say Yes' doing on here? I laughed out loud when I heard, "Never, ever stop falling in love." Those are songs that I think can be safely said to appeal more to a Korean market than a Western one. They're too cheesy and cute.

Before I get berated by Kpop fans, I love them too. I stayed up to watch their debut on The Letterman Show, and I recorded their dance on Live with Kelly. But we need to be honest - This could have been great. Instead, it was average. I feel that eventually Kpop will step out in a big way in America, but this isn't the album to do that.
