Woah this is easily my fave Monsta x release. The title song doesn’t do the rest of the songs justice cuz they’re rly good. Normally I only like one or two b sides but I think all except 2 are going to be replayed a lot!

10/10 love every song, which is pretty rare for me

This album! The preview really tried to fool us by picking the softer and chiller parts of each song.

Mohae, myself and oh my are my favorites on this album, the first time I heard myself I could NOT believe it tbh.
Underwater went into a completely different direction but those breakdowns really work imo.
I thought I would hate heart attack but I don't - the instrumental is so fun and there's something really 90s about it.
Shoot out - I love love love the harmonies in the chorus but I need an edited version without the waka waka walker walker introduction. They tried to replicate dramarama's intro but failed. It just sounds... bad.
Neol hada is very cute, Hyungwon's voice fits so well.
I really don't care about by my side tbh. Shownu sounds great though (as always).
Spotlight is a great song but I'm just used to the japanese version. I would've wanted an original song instead but at least sound wise it fits.

I didn't expect to like this album so much tbh but it's really cohesive in its sound and while it's still very monsta x, there are new styles they haven't tried before and that's what I love about their discography.

A very solid album! I like it more than their last 2 minis, but it does not top the Beautiful album for me. They explored some new sounds with this album, but it fits perfectly into their discography!

My favorites from the album are Oh my, mohae, and myself

Myself: This song is very dream-like. I like how it has both slow and fast parts in it. This song has one of my favorite choruses on the album

Oh my: I really want a live performance of this song. It uses a lot of different sounds in it, but it all works

Mohae: I knew I was going to love this from the album preview. The rap fits perfectly into this song.

Underwater: I am glad that the chorus was not "underwater underwater" like I was imagining.

Shoot Out: I was shocked by the beginning of the song. My favorite parts are still the singing parts.

Heart Attack: Fun

Neol Hada: Cute

By My Side: Sweet

Spotlight: I liked the Japanese version and I am glad to have a Korean version. I hope they include this song in the setlist for their next U.S. tour

I hate everything about the title omg from busted mv to the chorus

BUT

OH MY! and myself are INCREDIBLE. I wish oh my was the title track. Shoot out makes no sense being on the album. I rather listen to jealousy omg
