The "Go Crazy!" video shows the guys doing just that, from performing choreography that looks like the guys are riding motorcycles in a neon video set to doing a conga line in a billiards hall. 2PM's last videos, 2013's "Comeback When You Hear This Song" and "A.D.T.O.Y.," were much darker with the former visual focused around the seven deadly sins. After trying out such a heavy theme, it's fun to see the boys let loose on camera with the last 20 seconds dedicated to the guys goofing off. In fact, the band even recorded a "party" version of their new video. Smart stuff.
More cuts on Go Crazy! also follow the theme of the title track's throwback-tinged sound.
"Mine" is the smooth, relaxed counterpart to "Go Crazy!" with its slinky synth-strings and falsetto-driven chorus, sounding more in the vein of recent Pharrell productions. The guys are still having a good time (at one point promising, "We're going to drink crazy all night, everything's going to be all right"), but the slick knob twiddling and their confident delivery make it the more subtle, mature approach to going wild.
The guys get their jazzy side on with "She's Ma Girl," which opens with a sax solo and features a brassy theme throughout, and the snappy, piano-centered "Boyfriend." Meanwhile, "Like Tonight," "Awesome!" and "Goodbye Trip" all have a distinct '80s power-pop sound with heavy synthesizers made modern with bleeps, bloops and other EDM embellishments.
That's not to say 2PM aren't winning on their modern-day productions either. "Pull&Pull" is a forward-thinking R&B track oozing with gooey harmonies. Meanwhile, the guys' sound right at home on the Korean remakes of EDM-centered Japanese singles "Beautiful" and "I'm Your Man" (below).
Billboard last identified 2PM's Grown album as being filled with "strong, but somewhat safe" material. On Go Crazy!, 2PM finds the perfect recipe for growth by stirring in unexpected sounds without straying too far from their R&B-pop roots.
