Thank you for the explanation. Can you please let me know if my interpretation (see edit) is right with the message behind it?

Edit

Here is the edit from the previous page:

Watching Upcoming PV making, it seems Squall is from storm meant visually? As in the members giving it their all with their performance. Doing their best one final time for this single. Is that the right interpretation?

Yeah, I think you pretty much have it here. It represents the feelings and effort, and is tied together visually by the water in the PV.

I really like the way that To Tomorrow's lyrics are placed? Like they start & end and stuff at weird intervals... I don't know music terminology. XD
The Curtain Rises has a LOT of high notes. :-o :sweat:

I love To Tomorrow and The Curtain Rises. Final Squall (why is it in all caps in the thread title? That's wrong) is okay but I know what it's doing.

Just watched the previews on "Station". I don't know how I feel about a rap in another song. It's fun sometimes, hopefully they don't overdo it.

To Tomorrow - love the song, video is kinda meh but they look gorgeous.

The Curtain Rises - the song is kinda lame, love the PV except for the awkward head shots.

I honestly felt the rap was underwhelming (from the radio preview). It's a bit long and it sounds a bit monotone until it gets to the fast part towards the end. However, the rest of the song is good :music:

Personally, I gotta be that guy again... I don't love any of the songs, and while originally I thought I'd like The Curtain Rises, turns out I don't, and I like Final Squall the most. I feel like for a final single To Tomorrow makes sense but... could have been done with a better song imo.

It's a little disappointing that their last single would've been a better last single lol Squall is so generic to me ("...Whatever"), To Tomorrow is alright, initially I liked The Curtain but I still can't overlook what a repetitive melody it is and how much I hate the rapping. (I think I get why I hated it so much in JJ and this, it isn't the quality of the rapping at all, it's just that it goes on for so long that there's this huge disconnect when the music starts playing again and I remember 'oh yeah, this is a song'. I've never had an issue with rapping in Kpop or even other Jpop groups but something about these two just irks me.)
...is a little later on...

I agree with the head shots, they were just kinda weird. Other than that, I like the PV.

I didn't like Final Squall at first but now I love it. PV is perfection. Makes me love it even more.

The curtain rises isn't their best song but it's not bad either. PV is awesome which helps.

To tomorrow is a god awful song that even the stunning outdoor shots in the PV can't save.

I haven't listened to any radio previews, so my issue with the rap isn't the styling of it or any technical parts of it. I even enjoyed the rap in "Jealousy". I just don't want them to be something that crops up a little too often (for me).

I actually enjoyed the rest of the song, or at least thought it was interesting enough that I want to listen to it a few more times.

As a mega C-ute fan I have to say this single is really underwhelming. They're "nice" but it just ends at nice. They could have honestly finished with their previous single. A combination of Mugen Climax and maybe To Tommorow and some other song would have been good as a final single.
