This latest effort does nothing to upset that impressive trend, comprising their most sophisticated sound and presentation yet, seeing them grow beyond youthful exuberance to deliver pop with a bit more of a weathered, knowing edge.

What do Twice and Nazi Germany have in common? A failed global expansion.

This is a bit of a long review, so strap your seatbelts, we in for a fancy rollercoaster ride.

TWICE has range, not only musically but audience-wise. Most of the time I used to not care about them at all, but I was always hearing what was released, recently (earlier this year), I decided to give TWICE another shot, and boy!! thank whatever god I did it.
