Arario

On January 16, 2014, the first version of the Arario mini-album was released, followed by the repacked edition on February 24 2014, featuring a new song and the Japanese version of R-Uh.  Initially, the release of this mini-album came less than a month after the release of their repackaged version of Dogg’s Out.  

The album opens up with the song “Arario”, which mixes the groups powerful raps with a more traditional Korean style of music.  With a fun and extremely energetic video, this is definitely a song worth checking out.  Out of all of their videos, this has the most basic background setting, but it makes up for the lack of background visuals with a unique use of fans as part of the dance.

Open The Door

Depending on the album version, “Arario” is either followed by “Keep Smiling” or “Open the Door”.  “Keep Smiling” lacks the power of the previous track by far, but it makes up for that with heavy, slow beats and a strong R&B feel.   In contrast, “Open The Door” brings the back energy the boys are known for.  They definitely made the right choice mixing an old-school sound with a more modern dubstep feel.  The video isn’t quite as eye-catching as some of the previous ones; the dance isn’t as complex and it seems a bit more disjointed, but the wardrobe helps to make up for that.  One thing Topp Dogg is definitely good for – their style.
