aespa - Girls
65
Well, this is a mixed bag... and not what I expected.

Where do I start? Not going to lie, I was pretty anticipated for this, especially considering how they pre-released "Illusion", which was pretty good, only to learn that was the best song out of the rest.

The eponymous title track is great and it's a pretty good expansion to the "Kwangya" theme and their previous TT "Savage", but the chorus needs more time to grow on me. "Illusion" is for SURE the ... read more

NiziU - U
65
The results for NiziU's first album "U," comes out with interesting results.

᛫ The lead single, "Chopstick" is seriously catchy. I usually don't hear music like this in the industry, so it's refreshing. The rap and chorus are the highlights of this song.
᛫ Vocals are pretty well-processed. You can tell that each song has seriously energetic vocals!
- The first half is much better and catchier than the second half.
- The B-sides are fine. Although they are enjoyable, ... read more

JEON SOMI - XOXO

While it may be strong at times, "XOXO" tells us that the efforts here are a huge miss.

This is going to be a longer review than usual, as I'm just basically explaining every song on here in-depth.

Ed Sheeran - =
38
It's no surprise that "=" is... nothing new.

We all know the story of Ed Sheeran. If not, he IS one of the well-known artists of the 2010s. He was breaking tons of records in his lifetime, and also lots of awards too. However, what gets me is that I still don't get how "Shape of You" shaped up to be one of the most-streamed Spotify songs ever! I just couldn't bear its replay value, despite being overplayed. Then, for the singles on here, we have "Bad Habits" with ... read more

CL - Alpha
72
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
