So Monsta X is trying to get their BTS on, huh?

We’re not throwing shade on them, either.  The visuals for All In reminded us of the current era BTS videos in starting off a story that seems to be broader than the song in question and may carry across several visuals.  We don’t mind, though; the try-hard posturing is gone and that is the thing that makes us happiest.  (They’re also creating a EP series that’s going to tie together, similar to The Most Beautiful Moment In Life.)

As for the song itself, the production is an improvement over their last few singles (with the exception of the re-release of Hero, which seems to be a precursor for this track stylistically).  So many of Monsta X’s tracks have a catchy vibe, but there’s always a little too much of something that derails the momentum and knocks the song down a peg.  Just as important, the vocals are better, with stronger harmonies and each member being able to be clearly distinguished from the others as they take the lead in their perspective sections.

The biggest complaint is that the lyrics to this song are lacking, something that we have taken issue with in many of their other songs.  This time around, though, they do hang together as a single idea and don’t seem to be as scattershot.  About dedicating themselves entirely to the woman they love, we spent far less time trying to figure out what this song was about, which made it that much easier to enjoy.

Lyrics:

I’m all in for you
I’m all in
I’m all in for you
Oh eh oh oh oh oh
I’m all in for you

May I steal your heart?
May I protect that heart?
If I fall several times and get hurt
Will you accept my surrender?
Sir yes sir, I’m saluting to your lips
I swear on your name
I’m not playing around, I put my life on the line
I’ll protect you

Oh everything about you is perfect perfect
Other girls? No thanks, no thanks
I only want you

All of me, all in, all in
If I can have you
I can do anything
Only to you, I’m all in, all in
This isn’t a lie
From now on
I’m all in for you, my body and heart
My time and money, I’m all in
I’m all in only for you
From now on
I’m all in for you

I may look a little scary girl
Don’t be scared, I’ll listen to you girl
I’m not good at expressing
So what
Jooheon
I’m all in for you

Everything about you is perfect
I need you
I only need you
Be excited, you’re my girl
Wait right there

All of me, all in, all in
If I can have you
I can do anything
Only to you, I’m all in, all in
This isn’t a lie
From now on
I’m all in for you, my body and heart
My time and money, I’m all in
I’m all in only for you
From now on
I’m all in for you

Baby you’re so beautiful
I need to have you now

I’m all in for you
I’m all in
I’m all in for you
Oh eh oh oh oh oh
I’m all in for you

Girl I’m all in
What cha sayin’
I don’t care, I want you
What I got it
I’m all in for you, all in
