Wheesung is one of those artists that has so much talent that the average person can easily feel dwarfed in comparison. He’s an amazing song writer and an unbelievable singer. Although Words That Freeze My Heart is really only a three track mini-album, it showcases his full talent. He leads strong with the title track Words That Freeze My Heart, the song starts out with a quietly suspenseful beat that slowly builds into the chorus. Wheesung’s powerful vulnerability caries the tones of heartbreak throughout the song.  It’s followed by No Way, a ballad that includes orchestral elements that increase in intensity throughout the song, building to a beautiful crescendo near the end of the song. We finish with Acquaintance, an R&B track with a lovely staccato feel to the verses.

In all, it’s a powerful mini-album, nothing less than expected from RealSlow. The only thing that could have made it better were more songs and a little variety, but I’m sure we’ll get more from Wheesung soon. He’s a busy man.

Rating: ★★★½☆
