TWICE's music has been pretty static so far in their career. In a situation similar to Girls' Generation at the beginning of the decade, the act's producers have been reluctant to stray whatsoever from their winning formula, even if this attitude prevents further growth. However, starting from November's 'YES or YES', the New Divine Nine™ have been slowly inching towards a more mature image, and 'FEEL SPECIAL' continues this trajectory, with all the expected teething problems.

Kim Petras wants to be a popstar so, so bad.

Each new release built upon the last, inching ... read more

There was no way that Carly Rae Jepsen was going to meet everyone’s expectations with “Dedicated”. “E•MO•TION” mythologised Jepsen as some unsung folk hero, worshipped by a newly-established cult whose increasingly performative praise felt more and more disingenuous as time passed, because ‘Jepsus’ herself has never been performative. So perhaps it’s no surprise that in “Dedicated”, she doesn’t bother to reach pople's ... read more
