The album hammers us with a strong spirit and probes into soul-searching. In addition, it offers calm moments and thrilling fun rock ‘n’ roll lead by Sungsoo’s roaring, yet tamed voice.
Overall, there’s a playful yet serious nature despite the hard sound and rough vocals. It offers a reflection of our current behaviors, but it is also a good source of inspiration for those that are going through turbulent times. There is a balance between elements that make the album enticing and fun without being repetitive or overwhelming. HarryBigButton delivers a constructive view of the world with hard rock ‘n’ roll melodies in Man of Spirit.

Korean rock band HarryBigButton: ‘We have the bigger button’
When U.S. President Donald Trump took to Twitter to compare button sizes with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, South Korean musician Lee Sung-soo laughed.
Kim, in his New Year address, said he had a “nuclear button” on his desk that could launch an attack on America. In response, Trump tweeted, “I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!”
But Lee is the singer and guitarist of the South Korean hard rock group HarryBigButton.
“Good for you both,” Lee said to Trump and Kim. “But your big and powerful buttons won’t be able to make people rock ‘n’ roll. We have a way bigger button called HarryBigButton which makes people rock ‘n’ roll all night long!” by Jon Dunbar
