I’m not even going to try to pretend to be calm in this post, there’s just no way I can. VIXX released the video for “Error” earlier today and OH HOLY FLIP, SOMEONE HOLD ME, I THINK I’M DYING!
I’m sobbing anyway, or I was, as I watched the video for the first time. (Which happened to be while I was walking my dogs. I’m sure the neighbors thought I was crazy, walking down the road with my face glued to my phone, crying and squeeing all the way home but who cares? This is VIXX!)
Now that I’ve had a chance to let the amazingness of “Error” sink in (and also catch my breath and stop crying) I can sit down and squee a bit with you, without risking the safety of my computer. (Water damage, yo. The tears were real!) I’m just not really sure where to start! Where do you begin to describe all of the things that are so perfectly wonderful about this amazing song and glorious video?
The song itself is absolutely wonderful, embodying everything I’ve ever loved about VIXX’s music. It’s got that strong EDM vibe with an undeniable pop feel, that pretty much defines VIXX’s music but it’s also got the darker undertones of VIXX’s stronger concepts thrown in there which, when combined with the piano and the strings… OH MY GIDDY AUNT! THIS SONG IS PERFECTION! I swear, the more times I listen to “Error” the more I fall in love with it. The vocals of this song are so powerful they simultaneously stop my heart, take my breath away, bring tears to my eyes and stir my soul, especially Beanie’s solo bit… Ugh! That deep voice with just a hint of robotic enhancement… AUGH! JUST RIP MY HEART OUT WHY DON’T YOU!?! And don’t even get me started on Leo’s voice! I’m haunted by its soulful beauty, the desperation behind the words, the pain, the emotion… GOOD GRIEF BOYS ARE YOU TRYING TO KILL ME?
And then we have the video itself which is the epitome of VIXX perfection. GOOD GRACIOUS! My poor zombie heart just can’t take this much glorious beauty in one shot! Every time I watch this video I end up the sobbing hollow shell of a once lively, happy Starlight. I just can’t handle these feel I tell you! I can’t! Beanie’s acting is so beyond amazing, I feel like he deserves an award or a medal or a trophy or something! And the rest of the boys… HOLY FLIP! When Jellyfish said this concept would be the strongest ever, I had no idea it would be this good! OH THANK YOU JELLYFISH! THANK YOU! I’ve never been so happy to die in my entire life! (Death by bias group… It’s the only way to go!)
I’d like to personally thank the stylist noonas responsible for making this concept possible. From the hair to the costumes (with the exception of Ravi’s and that hat… Oy!) this concept is by far my most favorite ever and I really, really, really want to hug the stylists in charge of Leo’s looks because HOLY SWEET BABY MONKEYS, THAT BOY IS ABSOLUTE PERFECTION! I might as well go curl up in a corner and die now because there’s no way I’m going to be able to stand in the same room as him next month without having a flipping heart attack. Especially not if he’s going to be wearing any of the outfits from this video. Nope. Not gonna happen.
Despite the fact I may die from my impending encounter with VIXX, I’m going to do my best to endure, at least long enough to see “Error” performed live because I don’t think my life will be complete until I do. The brief glimpses of the choreography that we get from this video are enough to stop my heart and I cannot wait for VIXX’s comeback stage so I can see this dance in all of its uncut glory. (And yes, the fact that Leo spends so much time in the middle of this choreography has a lot to do with my desperate need to see this song performed live. I know what Leo’s like on-stage. I know how well he can dance. I also know I will probably fall over dead as I watch this song performed live but I’m okay with that. Again, a dead fangirl is a happy fangirl when death comes at the hands of her ultimate bias.) I’m also hoping for the release of a dance version of this video in the very near future. PLEASE OH PLEASE OH PLEASE JELLYFISH, PLEASE RELEASE A DANCE VERSION OF “ERROR” SOON!
To wrap this up, all I can really say is that VIXX has made me incandescently happy with this comeback and I can only hope that through the promotions of “Error” the rest of the world can come to appreciate just how amazing this group of artists is. VIXX is a band to be loved, admired, respected and appreciated and I’m hoping nothing but the best for them, not just with this comeback but in everything they do. VIXX, FIGHTING!
So what do you think of VIXX’s comeback? Are you dying like I am or a I simply out of my mind? I’d love to know your thoughts so be sure to leave me a comment below!
