America's Billboard headlined an article about SHINee's 'Married To The Music.'

On August 6th, America's Billboard headlined an article titled 'SHINee Get Odd, Lose Body Parts in 'Married to the Music' Video' on their official website, which included a detailed introduction for SHINee's new title track and music video.

Billboard wrote, "SHINee's most recent album may have been titled 'Odd,' but the boy band waited until the LP's repackage to get really weird. After bringing the excellently breezy house jam "View" as the lead single for Odd, a new repackage titled Married to the Music comes with four new tracks. The release's title track is a journey of different genres, opening with what initially sounds like a beatbox-heavy, hip-hop sound before flipping to a sexy, bouncy electronic beat on the verses until we get to a funk-inspired chorus that mixes in horn blasts, groovy guitar strums and classic boy-band harmonies."

They continued, "You could say this is inspired by '70s disco or '80s funk, but it's tough to pin down the exact genre of 'Married to the Music' -- the markings the best kinds of K-pop tracks."

Billboard also wrote, "The music video is a bit B movie horror film with a little Rocky Horror Picture Show-esque camp thrown in as the guys hit a ghoulish party with radioactive drinks while a faceless woman (who may or may not be a crazed SHINee fan) finds ways to steal the guys' body parts by throwing a knife through Key's neck, stealing Jonghyun's lips through a kiss and such. All the boisterous body-snatching is spliced up with scenes of the guys' slick-as-ever choreography."

Billboard added, "While international fans may gawk that it's a bit early for Halloween, SHINee is actually embracing South Korean's tradition to flock to horror films in the heat of summer."

Meanwhile, SHINee made the first live performance of 'Married To The Music' during August 7th broadcast of KBS 2TV 'Music Bank,' and they are going to appear on this week's MBC 'Show! Music Core' and SBS 'Music Trend.'
