Now that the botting has ended, I can now voice my actual opinions. Before I go into my thoughts on the album itself, I'm going to first talk about how useless botting this site really is.

Score doesn't matter. The most it does is puts it higher on the charts but what you're really doing is delegitimizing the site.

Your favorite artists approval, is not something you're getting with this. At this point, you're only pleasing yourself and your other friends only.

You are hurting the site. As I ... read more

No shitposts to be found here, I genuinely really enjoyed a lot of what I heard on this project.

No matter what you think of the quality of their music or their often toxic fanbase, it's hard to deny that BTS is made up of 7 very talented guys, who clearly have a devout passion for making music, and on this project, more so than anything they've done in the last few years, the group seems to be playing to their strengths more often than not. Aside from one obvious dud, in my eyes a lot of ... read more

These guys release an album every few months, and then the BTS army gets mad at us for not liking the album... then they raid the site with 100/100 reviews... blah blah blah

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

Deleted the old review with 160 likes, time for a real one.

K-Pop is not a genre I’m totally opposed to unlike a lot of people as I did enjoy BLACKPINK’s album they released earlier this year and I think there are a few decent highlights on LOONA’s record that released not too long ago. However BTS, for some dumbfuck reason, seem to be the poster-children for K-POP. This will forever confuse me because they are some of the most mediocre in the field. Their MAP OF SOUL 7 ... read more

Shut the fuck up and actually listen to the album please. "But we got to counteract the Bots!" The bot accounts have consistantly been deleted hours after creation. This isn't March, 2019 anymore, Rob is kinda an expert at dealing with this at this point. Listen to the damn ... read more

had to pause 31 seconds in track 1 to process that this is the direction they're going in

what's that direction? unnecessarily over-processed vocals with zero substance over whitewashed instrumentals, and fundamentally losing sight of what made them popular in the first place at every significant level

why do BTS insist so much on the voice processing? they've shown before in previous projects such as YNWA (shoutout @eliiscool5) that they absolutely process a respectable vocal prowess, but ... read more

Edit: I’m going to share some of my real thoughts on bts’ third album of the year - Be. Be, an album of merely 28 mins, comprises 8 tracks which feature western pop, synth-funk and rnb elements. The first half of the album is fairly weak, with the first three tracks sounding like Shawn mendes throwaways. Unforgettable and mundane to the core. Im not going to talk about skit in this review. The two tracks after skit are good compared to most of the rest of the album. Both of them are ... read more

BTS are a cultural phenomenon, and their newest releases have been the largest things to come out of Korea since Kim Jong-un left North Korea to meet with Trump. (funny joke please laugh) However, I’m sorry to report that their latest music doesn’t really live up to the insane hype they’ve built up for themselves. This new project is incredibly short, with only 8 tracks and 28 minutes of runtime, and they’re quite average, if I’m being honest. This album ... read more

Plot twist : we are the actual bots

This album aint that bad. It could be a lot worse. Would have rated it a 60 if they just stopped using autotune. Its just annoying.

Edit: This grew on me ngl. im able to tune out the autotune now. its still annoying but.... yeah

edit 2: autotune not annoying anymore. its good.

A few days later, the deluxe never dropped, there's still no NAV feature and my character development arc has forced me to delete the jokey review but this album is still pretty ass ngl.

Also someone said i needed therapy! "THAT BOY NEEDS THERAPY" - the avalanches, FRONTIER PSYCHATRIST, 2000

although eliiscool5 likes it and he's my friend so I will drastically increase my score to the big fat number of 2

actually, I just want him to give me his limited edition diddy kong ... read more

"BE....a bot" should be their motto.

This feels like one of their worst albums to date,doesn't it? It really doesn't capture their energy and vocals from previous works,and,for me,it ends up just being a marketing move,rather then being an actual album with essence and spirit. First of all,the production is awful and sounds really cliché,second of all the auto-tune they use is ass and it makes them sound like Star Wars robots,and lastly,it's just boring. I expected more from ... read more

Botting this with 0s makes you just as bad as the stans that bot this album with 100s. Just saying.

BE.

(Reuploaded to remove bots + further analysis)

The South Korean sensation BTS (방탄소년단) is back, with BE: a simple title on the surface, but take a look at the Korean characters for Bang (방) and Tan (탄). Spot something? Anyway, with a colossal catalog of seventeen commercial records, three of them reaching the top of the American charts, BTS have been able to capture the hearts of youths across the world, with songs that explore various personal troubles, life lessons, and ... read more

Time to join the hivemind weeeeeee

I went into this thinking it'd actually be good. Blasphemy, I know, but hear me out. I thought Dynamite was a really great single when it first came out. Still do, for some reason- chorus is really catchy, decent vocal work from the group throughout, and... yeah, as far as k-pop goes, that may be my favorite song in the genre (from what little knowledge I have of it, keep in mind.) That was the only single I heard leading up to this release, but hey, if I ... read more

I love Brockhampton too, Kevin Abstract is so versatile and the biggest creative in the group. Matt Champion is amazing with flows and his delivery is always so clean. Dom McLennon is a crazy lyricist, there is nothing he can't do. Joba is so dynamic and can range from crazy angry to really bummed and depressed. Merlyn is so charismatic and can contribute some of the catchiest verses. Bearface has the voice of an angel and can control his voice so well. Of course, HK, Jabari Manwa, Romil ... read more

Message to K-pop fans:
As a clarification, to put my judgment into perspective, I am basing and comparing my ranking and review off of all music I have ever heard. Considering spambots don't contribute anything of substance to the list of reviews, I thought it wouldn't be fair of me to not correctly critique this. I believe very highly that this is not the best album or album of the year. If you feel the need to comment something hateful due to a difference in opinion, please rethink your ... read more

I didn’t even feel like listening to this new album or reviewing it cause of how genuinely annoying people were under these reviews. It made me feel like shit for being a fan and liking their music. But I guess I’ll get it over with and be honest with what I feel towards this new album from BTS !!

First, this album was definitely different then their other albums. Yes, they have a different concept for every album they release, BUT I won’t lie here.. this one felt a bit off ... read more
