Consequence of Sound

The Bangtan Boys accomplish exactly what they set out to do with this album: bring comfort to their listeners and remind people around the world that they are not alone in their experiences.


Just as ‘BE’ cycles through the various ever-changing moods the pandemic has made a constant in our lives, it’s also finds the band constantly moving between genres, each attempt a triumph.

Letter To BTS Stans From Twitter: Haha y'all dumb as fuck thanks for my first popular this week. This is kind of illegal but whatever, get finessed and stop spamming these reviews please.

[Actual Review and Rating Now]
As of now it's been over 6 months since Soul: 7 which is an album I've had a love/hate relationship with. At first I was confused as to the direction they were going into and I really wished they could've delved deeper into their persona's. Aside from this slight narrative ... read more
