CRITIC REVIEWS

Rolling Stone

K-Pop group successfully mix bangers and bold stylistic moves on their second mini-LP.

Beats Per Minute
With the likes of TWICE and Red Velvet handling the bright and shiny side of female-led K-pop, aespa seem to face little competition cornering the more abrasive, in your face market.

Clash
For a group that debuted two years ago, Aespa have cultivated their concept and monopolised their futuristic/sci-fi world, an impressive feat that has only just begun.

SM Entertainment’s metaverse-dwelling girl group look to capitalise on their big year so far but don’t hit with the impact they once had.

SM Entertainment desperdiça oportunidade de fazer com que Girls seja uma das melhores sequências da história no K-pop.

Traçar comparações nem sempre é um método assertivo para analisar diferentes obras do mesmo artista. Mas, no caso do segundo mini-álbum do aespa, é impossível não fazer isto. Primeiro, o disco surge em um momento importante e de grande escala na recente carreira do grupo. Porém, apesar do ... read more

Em Savage, aespa conseguiu, por meio de uma utilização surpreendente e fascinante de uma abordagem experimental, trazer um dos lançamentos de k-pop mais excepcionais dos últimos anos. Após um disco em que foi entregue uma qualidade tão alta, era esperado que, no próximo registro do girlgroup, elas conseguissem fazer um trabalho artístico, não necessariamente do mesmo nível que seu primeiro mini-álbum, mas que fosse uma ... read more

Girls…? In just five tracks aespa's second mini album takes the listener from an insane hype to zero interest in this project at all with a track list that gets worse with each song. It's lackluster, boring, disappointing, and doesn't sound like them. A totally safe project coming from a group whose name is well-known for their experimental hints.

(+) "Girls", "Illusion".

Such a downgrade from savage, which is one of my top kpop projects of all time. It’s like they tried replicating it but replaced some of the most vital ingredients therefore turning it to a disappointing mess.

Savage >>>>> girls. The song doesn’t have a solid structure so it just blares on carelessly and the dance break aged like milk. In fact each track from savage is better than their girls cointerpart. I’ll make you cry/iconic > illusion, yeppi yeppi ... read more

ICU may genuinely be the worst Kpop song I've listened to. I have no clue why SM decided that aespa needed to go away from their experimental sound, but it doesn't sound good. Every song that uses this 'cute' concept sounds horrible, with Life's Too Short being a slight exception. While aespa will still remain my ult girl group, more releases like this would make me start looking in IVE's direction.
