 - High Expectations

I think they've been quite unfair to Mabel's debut, but I do understand why it hasn't been completely fulfilling to some people. Some are going to be offended by this, but I need to say it: High Expectations reminded me so much of Dangerously in Love by Beyoncé. Why? Towards the album you can see she's trying to deliver soft melodic R&B like they did back then, however, it doesn't sound dated at all. It's full of current production and interesting samples through and through.

 - Bloodshot / Waste

Why in the world this EP only contain TWO songs? I guess what it actually makes me mad about this record having two songs is that Bloodshot/Waste is pretty good. Her voice, the aesthetic, the lyrics, the old-rock influence, etc. It kind of reminds me of Kate Miller-Heidke's works. I really hope Dove continues to drop music out, she's an amazing singer and an amazing artist in general.

Highlights: BOTH songs are great

 - Obsession

So, kpop hasn't been captivating me this year like it did last year, but I was excited when Obsession was released. Since EXO is my favorite kpop group, I was expecting this record to change my mind about 2019's kpop, but I'm afraid it didn't. Maybe the reason I'm not enjoying it anymore is because it all sounds soo hip-hop, and that's not usually my cup of tea.

I'm proud of them for taking risks and trying to innovate their music, which is always necessary for musicians, but maybe it's not ... read more

This is the kind of compilation albums I'm never gona get tired of. Imagine recording your most iconic dance-pop songs with an orchestra so your fans can listen to you in a more personal and somehow closer way. Amazing. My only little critics are that I'm not really into changing the melodies of iconic songs. But hey, those are her own songs and sometimes it's needed when you do acoustic versions. Also, would have loved an only-piano On a Night Like This version, since is one of my favorite and ... read more

So I finally got to listen the second part of Loona's first work, but i'm rating this as both the EPs. I really think Loona shines among other K-Pop acts like Blackpink or Twice. Blackpink is usually too sexualyzed and Twice might come somehow childish (not in a bad way) sometimes. This is where Loona stand out, they can be sensual and also have some kind of naiviness in their music.

But as I said, I'm rating the two EPs here and + + remains as the best part by far in my opinion. Nothing ... read more

Thanks for the compliment! It seems most of the userbase here is mostly into hip-hop. I’m looking to contribute more to the pop music community here on AOTY.

Nah, it's just that Eurovision pumps a lot of albums out on Spotify, and they're the easiest to find.
