A quick, half-arsed review:
Spoiler (click to open)
I think I will have the upside down walking scene forever lodged in my head when I listen to this record. I love how the walking bit turns into percussion and that bassline is utterly delicious. I was afraid I was going to dislike the "woman" sample, but it fits really well. My only complaint is that I wish the refrain was repeated one more time to bring it into the three minute mark. 5/5
This would have slotted nicely on the
One Shot, Two Shot
mini album. The "cause I like it, I like it!" refrain is a
annoying, but I love it overall. 4/5
I predicted this to be my favourite when we received the album teaser and that still stands. I love the chugging production. 5/5
Another one that would have fit on
One Shot, Two Shot
; I'm almost certain some of these were originally planned for it. Not horrible, just a bit too on trend. I really like the pre-chorus melody. 3.5/5
This is really cute and funky, the chorus melody is great. 3.5/5
You and I
Another record with that chugging production. I wanna say this is my second favourite. 5/5
It's a nice piece of guitar driven pop, but it's not really my cup of tea. 3/5
Again with the similar sound of
, this one is quite fun though. I love the "no, no, no limit oooo na na na na" and "tell me what you wanna do" bits. 4/5
Another funky record that's quite enjoyable. I could have done without the male vocals at the beginning. 3.5/5
I Want You Back
This is a nice marriage of the tropical records and funky tracks that sprinkle the album. The refrain is a bit weak though. I feel like they would have done something different to the altered vocals echoing her. 3.5/5
Really a light, fluffy album with the occasional bit of sass thrown in the mix. I can't wait for my physical copy to arrive, it looks lush.

I love all the songs you said belong on OSTS, lol (makes sense since I loved it)
I want a physical copy, too. It's such a solid album, I want to listen to it on repeat for like a week.

is a flawless mini album; I still regularly listen to it. A lot of this album flows really well with "One Shot, Two Shot", "Everybody Knows", "Recollection" and "Always, All Ways", so it's nice to have almost an extension.

I only got to listen to half... but I will be listening to the album pretty much all day at work.
Waking up to a new album and video by my Queen... is the best way to wake up!

Whenever I listen to Good Love I can't help but to think of Red Velvet's Campfire tbh

It's a really solid album! Felt like it continued in the same vein as One Shot, Two Shot (which I think is great, loved that EP).
I can't stop listening to U&I. Irreversible and Encounter are some of my favourites as well (along with the title track).

i love love love the album. BoA and her team are so good at choosing collections of songs that really work together and make a complete statement. It's such a smooth listen.
I know this album was quite a surprise and people outside of here think it's rushed or half assed but I don't feel that at all. It feels like they were ready and just pulled the trigger on it.

also seriously the only category at award shows this year that's going to be difficult to call is solo female because all the women have been delivering this year and I think they should all be giving awards.

such a solid cohesive album
i love it
what a blessed year, we had so many BoA releases

fantastic!! My faves aside from the title are Like it and I want you back (which could've been a cute/flirty comeback song. I hope she does an mv for it or a special performance!)
