1. Sweet Impact
2. Bad Drive
3. SO REAL (ArmySlick’s scratch build vocal)
[First pressing bonus track]
4. Sweet Impact (TV MIX)
5. Bad Drive (TV MIX)
This BoA’s 23rd single and it was released on April 25, 2007. The single reached #5 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 42,789 copies.
There is one thing I have to say about Sweet Impact…it’s GENERIC. The song is typical pop with some synth thrown in the background. I wasn’t very impressed with the music because it’s the same type of pop from BoA that I have heard many times before. The only redeeming quality about the song is the somewhat catchy chorus.
I thought the B-side was so much better compared to the blandness of the A-side. Bad Drive was the song I was expecting from BoA to release after the mature stylings of MADE IN TWENTY (20). The song has a hot bass beat and a great R&B rhythm. Aside from the ridiculous English lyrics that are scattered throughout the entire song (poison talk and price and toy, this is one BoA’s most valiant efforts to date.
The first pressing bonus track is a remix of SO REAL, a song that appeared on her latest album MADE IN TWENTY (20). ArmySlick’s scratch build vocal makes the song even better by giving it more style and flavor.
