There will be time for Blackpink to experiment—ideally in a full-length project. Until then, the women are deepening their brand of K-pop for a quickly growing, language-agnostic fanbase eagerly anticipating every fierce new beat drop.

The K-pop sensations have a great record in them. This five-track EP might not quite be that record, but it does demonstrate their breadth of creativity.

The mixing and beats on the DDU-DU DDU-DU remix kinda sounds like Corey Feldman producing and trying to make trap music in 2030.

The rest of the EP desperately tries to "westernize" the music with trap beats and poor mixing. Kpop releases like this one are the reason why reviews like exception's BTS - Love Yourself: Answer rant exist. It's frustrating for many to have to deal with the obsessive fandoms and the heavily manufactured music that spreads into every corner of pop culture.

The title track is an incohesive piece of shit composed of purely trap beats and bass effects. The dddd remix is quite possibly the most unnecessary song by anyone ever, and Hope Not is by far the worst ballad-esq song from a company with outstanding ballad songs.

I enjoyed Kick It and DNWTD despite the overly-repetetive use of the word 'kick' and the dyingcat.mp3 that haunts me to my fucking core.

Black pink in your area! To be another sub-par k-pop disaster. The only skill they have is acquiring annoying brain-dead teens, who can't comprehend basic things, they just know how to 'Blink'.

Cheap, corny mixes, beats, lyrics; those become annoying, headache inducing squeals after a minute. Becomes a desperate noisy Korean flea market when vocals drop. With pretentious pop tropes, making it a cringe fest. Unreal.
Won't go into details. It's just you may wanna avoid.

the ddu-du ddu-du remix might be one of the worst things i've ever heard
