Tonight

When did we start losing the spark between us? We’re like a drained cola that has lost its fizz. The first feeling of going numb, we’re glancing at each other sideways. I’m not hanging myself over such a love, don’t wanna try no more.” –Big Bang, Tonight



Setelah dua tahun hiatus dari dunia musik Korea Selatan dengan tidak memproduksi album sama sekali, Big Bang kembali pada tahun 2011 dengan mini album keempat mereka yang bertajuk “Tonight”. Mini albumtitle song “Tonight” sebagai lead single. The album became the very first K-pop album to reach the Top 10 on US iTunes chart and is the only non-English language album in the Top 100. It also had a pre-sale order of 10.000 copies in Cyworld, beating the record set by TVXQ’s 6.500 copies back in 2008. Aside from shattering records for their mini-album preorders, Big Bang achieved an “all-kill” on the top real-time charts in South Korea (Soribada, Melon, Dosirak, Bugs and Cyworld) shortly after the release. In just a week, 100.000 copies of the album were sold. The lead single “Tonight” became a chart-topper on many South Korean top charts. ini dirilis pada tanggal 23 Februari 2011 dengan

“Tonight” mengisahkan seseorang yang mulai merasa hambar terhadap hubungan yang ia jalani dengan orang yang dicintainya. Segala sesuatunya ia rasa berbeda dengan ketika saat-saat pertama ia bersama orang yang dicintainya. Ia bahkan mulai merasa asing dengan perasaannya sendiri, meskipun ia tahu bahwa ia masih mencintai orang itu. Ia merasa lelah dan bosan, tanpa tahu apa penyebabnya. Ia tak ingin menyakiti siapapun, baik dirinya sendiri maupun orang yang dicintainya. Namun bahkan perpisahan tidak menimbulkan kesedihan pada dirinya. Ia berusaha mencari dan menggali kembali hasrat itu, namun ia tak menemukannya. Bahkan rasa rindu mulai menghilang, dan kenangan pun mulai memudar. Ia berusaha memahami apa arti cinta sesungguhnya, namun pada akhirnya ia tak mendapatkannya, dan berakhir sendirian.

Secara keseluruhan, album comeback dari Big Bang ini memperoleh berbagai tanggapan positif dari para kritikus musik. Choi Jun of Asia-e complimenting the group’s new direction in their music, acknowledging that during the two years hiatus, the group’s “style and musical sensibility had deepened”. The lead single “Tonight” was also praised for its “sophisticated electronic sound” paired with acoustic guitar. Pujian seperti “Big Bang has comeback brilliantly and stronger than ever” juga mereka dapatkan. Music video (MV) dari lagu “Tonight” juga menampilkan kelima sosok anggota Big Bang dengan karakter yang masing-masing berbeda, namun melambangkan suasana lagu yang modern sophisticated yet cool rock n’ roll style. Meskipun MV ini tidak memiliki jalan cerita yang kuat seperti MV “Lies”, “Last Farewell”, dan “Haru Haru”, MV “Tonight” jauh dari kesan membosankan dan tipikal karena tidak menampilkan koreografi dance seperti MV pada umumnya. MV ini juga menampilkan seorang model wanita. Well, after two years of hiatus, Big Bang has back with “Tonight”, and of course, it was a brilliant comeback stage ever!



The sad meaning behind the words ‘goodbye’ becomes covered by the dark shadows. My memories look towards you, who I have forgotten in my heart.” –Big Bang, Tonight
