Merry Christmas everyone! Fitting in with tomorrow (and as a small Christmas present), I have decided to review Stray Kids’ latest single album release, Christmas EveL. The single album consist of four songs, three of which I have reviewed before. They include Christmas EveL, Winter Falls and Domino (for this single album, the English version is featured, but I am carrying over my rating from the NOEASY album review). There is also a fourth song, which I will review below. Anyhow, I hope you have received great presents and the opportunity to spend time with family or friends this Christmas. And if you don’t celebrate Christmas, then I wish you a great day.

2. 24 to 25 – I am aware that 24 to 25 ended up getting a music video, but I will put that long list of Stray Kids music videos that I was supposed to review, which will now be a 2022 task. 24 to 25 is a ballad. A soothing, sweet and warm one, might I add. 24 to 25 showcases Stray Kids vocals. We don’t encroach into powerhouse vocal territories, but Stray Kids sound really comforting and stunning in this song. The rappers, who are usually harsh and rough around the edges with their tone and delivery, tweaked their style to be more of a rap-singing style, which works extremely well with ballad approach. I do wish the melodies made 24 to 25 stand out a bit more to make it more memorable. (8/10)

4. Domino (English Version) – I have previously reviewed Domino as part of Stray Kids’ NOEASY studio album. Click here for Domino’s review. (10/10)

Overall Album Rating – 8.8/10
