F-I-N-A-L-L-Y!

The moment I've waited almost a decade finally came, the debut album by legendary korean superstar CL, former 2NE1 member has arrived to the motherf*cking world. Obviously, I'm not disappointed at all, honestly I don't think I could ever be, I always liked her songs from the start. It's a delicious mix of the most ok pop production you've ever heard yet it still sounds fresh and delightful, cause she got that sauce that is SPICY. CL has been in a personal war with the YG mafia ... read more

CL, ex integrante do 2NE1, lançou seu full album ontem, após quase uma década de espera, e não decepcionou.
Confesso que depois de ouvir o lead single, Spicy, fiquei com medo do disco ter essa vibe trap barulhenta repetitiva, mas o universo me ouviu e aconteceu isso.
O disco abre com aquele hip hop mega repetitivo que é Spicy, e depois erra de novo em Chuck... que não é música, são só ruídos ... read more

Ouvindo o novo álbum da CL, finalmente.

O álbum começa com a música "spicy" que é experimental. Me pareceu com muita coisa ao mesmo tempo mas curti um pouco.

Gostei do refrão de "lover like me", é uma música divertida.

Em "chuck" ela fez algo diferente mas pra mim ficou bem desagradável.

"xai" não é uma música tão poderosa, mas eu gostei de escutar. ... read more

CL em "Alpha", o seu álbum debut, depois de tantos anos na indústria, está aqui para provar que uma música ser genérica, não significa que ela precisa ser ruim.

Abrir o álbum com a sequência "SPICY", "Lover Like Me" e "Chuck", talvez não tenha sido uma boa escolha, simplesmente porque são as piores em "Alpha", principalmente quando comparadas com as faixas seguintes. E o caso ... read more

I was planning to review "Pirata", Jão's new album, but instead I decided to analyze "Alpha", CL's debut album.

For those who don't know, CL is a South Korean rapper who participated in the group 2NE1 as the group's leader and main rapper from 2009 to 2016. She has already released some projects of her solo career before, such as some singles and her first EP "In The Name of Love".

Now, she has finally released her first solo album, "ALPHA", with ... read more

CL seeks a new chapter with her debut, and strongly adequate album, "Alpha".

"Alpha" comes just after CL's departure of YG Entertainment. After which, time was spent on wrapping up some of her previously scrapped songs and sneaking them into "Alpha", similar to the previous project, "In the Name of Love". The overall result of this album actually delivers, and is exactly what I pretty much imagined. Unfortunately, here isn't necessarily anything ... read more

CL is one of the most well known 2nd gen names in K-pop globally. Her monstrous stage presence and amazing skill set shot her up to popularity - however the one thing holding her back was her own label. Delayed releases, unreleased singles and long hiatuses ensued but finally she has released her debut album ‘Alpha’. An album which definitely shows multiple sides to her musically.

We begin with ‘SPICY’ and it’s flurry of experimental beats. It’s quite a ... read more

CL's debut album is ambitious, but unfortunately its risks don't always pay off. I have to say I LOVED all 4 singles leading up to this project, so perhaps my expectations were too high... but most of the album tracks left me with a little question mark in my head. I could go on and on about how terrible Chuck is. I wanna know how a song THAT bad made it on an album that was delayed by a whole year. And even the more "diverse-sounding" tracks like Let It just didn't pair well with ... read more

CL has always had the charisma to carry her own project. She has also kind of gotten screwed out of branching out and making her own name. While nothing on here reaches her previous heights in 2NE1, there are some fun bangers on here. It's not going to blow your mind or anything, but I'm glad that she is getting the opportunity to spread her wings at long last. I don't love it or anything, but I am a sucker for a happy ending for what seems like a cool person, so congrats to CL.

Como um blackjack de longa data, fico muito feliz em ver a CL lançar seu tão aguardado debut album e ele ser tão bom assim.

Fav tracks: Siren, Paradise, SPICY, My Way e Tie A Cherry
Least fav: HWA

Certainly a pick and mix of flavours in here, but it's a pretty solid selection of songs. The production on here is consistently great; bar HWA which was a slightly disappointing mess. Overall, a really fun pop-rap album - although I do wish that something less annoying had been done with Chuck, because that beat is an absolute monster. Definitely recommend giving CL a shot.

ALPHA

Depois de muitos anos e varias tentativas de fazer seu debut CL finalmente o lança, e eu particularmente esperava algo mais original e melhor produzido.
Alpha em vários momentos soa como um álbum amador e genérico, pra mim não teve de fato uma faixa que seja destaque. Hello Bitches (la de 2016) consegue ser melhor que esse projeto inteiro, é decepcionante que uma artista com tanto potencial tenha se perdido.
Spicy, Siren e HWA foram as que mais ... read more

When she sings, she sounds like selena gomez.

Tem boas músicas aqui mas no final você já sente ele repetitivo e cansativo, usando a mesma fórmula em diversas delas. Deve satisfazer os fãs e alguns amantes de kpop.
Destaques: Spicy, Chuck, My Way, 5 Star.

CL's long-waited debut album isn't bad as i thought would be.

For someone who claims herself to be an Alpha, CL does not bring her own freshness and acts like a Beta.

After the sudden disbandment of 2NE1 in 2017, all members went on and kept themselves busy with solo projects. After endless teasing, CL has now released her debut solo effort. ALPHA shows what YG Entertainment let go to waste after they nearly ruined her career, and CL makes sure to show what she's made up of.
