I've lost all discernibility.

This EP is messy, this EP was clearly made with limited effort, there aren't much innovation or new ideas to the table, and the 5 songs here aren't especially catchy or fun, which is usually what I look for in K-Pop stuff.

It might not be their best, but 'RBB' has some charm to it especially on a title track that feels bolder than usual. The 'velvet' side of the mini does fall prey to a blueprint in kpop we've heard a thousand times and it's the 'red' songs that get to me more, but it is a nice way to end 2018 for Red Velvet.

RBB esconde B-Sides maravilhosas, umas das melhores do grupo, quem tiver preconceito com a title aconselho ouvir o conjunto da obra, a magia do EP vem logo depois de RBB (Música).
It's such a shame that Butterflies and So Good ended up on this, they deserve far better. The title track and Sassy Me are bordering on unlistenable (fuck me that highnote is gonna give me tinnitus if I listen to it again) , while Taste is just kind of awkward and forgettable. RBB is the first major dud in Red Velvet's discography, but even so they managed to sneak in at least a couple of really good songs.
