Ultra-hyped K-pop supergroup LOONA finally assemble in full for + +, but they haven't yet gelled into a natural whole.

Дебютный мини-альбом группы LOONA, идет после всех выпусков соло для 12-ти девочек + их саб-юнитов. Отличный релиз, за счет своих тайтл-треков и интро, би-сайды же, за исключением Stylish, ничем не восхищают.

Любимые треки - + +, Hi High, Favorite, Stylish.

THE ULTIMATE EDIT: forgive my months before me her odd eye circle wasnt open but now this is music that spank me

EDIT: THIS WOULD BE A 95+ IF THE LAST TRACKS WOULD BE BETTER
PS: the favorite track and the next one hardly stan.

The payoff moment. After almost 2 years, Loona came together and debuted as one. + + manages to encompass each sound, style and influence from the solos and subunits, and melds them into one cohesive sound. You have the hyperpop title track 'Hi High', moombahton-styled 'Heat' and 90s-tinged 'Perfect Love.' And then, you have some hip hop flavourings on 'favOriTe' and a future bass base on 'Stylish'.

Eclectic? Yes.
Varied? Yes.
Experimental? Not exactly, but maybe by K-pop standards.
