It breaks my heart to write this about my favorite and the best NCT unit but this is the definition of underwhelming. It sounds like an album full of NCT 127 rejects, the title track is weird and interesting (like Ko Ko Bop or Zimzalabim), it’s not bad but definitely their worst title track to date. Hoping the next one will be better (still bought three copies of the album lol).
I‘ve been listening to K-Pop for over 10 years and I have never experienced an album that perfect. SHINee aren‘t even my favorite group but they have surely released the AOTY with this one. Area is an instant career highlight.
