I'm sorta back. This was solid. Excellent. Not perfect, but close. Between has some of Twice's best B-Sides but also suffers from some moments which, while sentimental and far from awful, don't stand up to the maturity and perfection found elsewhere on this admittedly long mini album. Brave lacks a strong hook to carry it over the line of merely fine, and Queen of Hearts has a pop punk charm a la Ponytail but ultimately feels like something that the band has aged out of.

NAYEON - IM NAYEON

Good Album Art Does not reflect the quality of the album as is evidenced by the fact that I included Queen here and they suck shit.

Ranging from cynical and lazy to offensive in all the wrong ways. The garbage piss graphic design hell of uninspired or demented album covers. Not ranked.

Albums with minimal interaction from posters and seemingly minor following all over the place. Stuff that I wish I had found sooner and I hope you enjoy as well. Somewhat ranked idk.
