It's okay, very trendy so I'm sure SK will eat it up (I even hear some of the annoying rapping shouts/noises, idk what they're called but kpop seems to love them lol)

The chorus melody to Our Summer reminds me of Closer by Chainsmokers

Crown and Our Summer are A+++, Cat & Dog is interesting (I keep hearing the chorus as Neopet and it's cracking me up, though lol)
The other songs are cute too and fit the mini's concept, but don't stand out as much to me.

solid debut, i think it's a good introduction while giving them room to grow. i basically like everything but nap of a star (i guess in their defense it really is something that'll put you to sleep so no false advertising there). non title-track stands out for me are our summer and cat & dog, but i also really like the vocals in blue orangeade

Solid and consistent mini, quite good for a debut.

I could do with less autotune for Cat & Dog, but other than that they sound quite good.

Curious about their lives.

Let's get it, TXT!

It's very pleasant and easy to listen too. I love the mv that goes with their title song so all in all very good job TXT and Big Hit.

Fuck.
I think BigHit managed to finally get me, I'm not prepared for this.
Blue Orangeade made me a believer.
The other tracks after the title are cute and fine, but that first track is everything I wanted.
I agree with everyone that this is a very solid body of work.

I look forward to more from these young men now.
Did not think I would be a fan of anything from BigHit, but here we are.

Please send help...

they also performed Blue Orangeade at their showcase: https://omonatheydidnt.livejournal.com/23749405.html

listened to it through once. the first 3 songs just blended together as one, the last 2 are not good imo. i might rip the first 3 to listen to again later.

I like Crown and Our Summer a lot. The last song is really pleasant to listen to but I feel that I'm not going to listen to it again.

I can’t stand to look at their logo 😭😭😭😭

It’s very well produced. The vocalists bleed together too much for me on the tracks though. You could say only two people are in this group singing these songs. That’s not my taste with vocal groups but that’s not a slight on the members that sameness thing seems to be part of their concept for this debut.

It’s very on trend with what’s coming out now and it really wouldn’t have mattered if it was ahead, on or behind trend since it’s big hit it’ll smash.

I agree. I like the sound of all the songs, but I really enjoy unique voices to overly perfect ones. Their vocals are too overprocessed to showcase any uniqueness
veep_throat 4th-Mar-2019 05:28 pm (UTC)
crown is the only tolerable song. am disappointed!

cat and dog is a hot mess... there's too much going on in tracks 1,3,4

id download an instrumental version of track 5

Pretty solid debut album.

They sound like BTS lite dream pop version with some hip hop here and there. The company did a good job setting a style that identifies Big Hit but making it distinctively different from BTS.

Cat & Dog does not exist. We shall never speak of ha again. Our Summer deserves a live performance. I’ve been listening to Our Summer and Blue Orangeade more than Crown. Nap of a star is a snoozefest but I still like it because it’s a cute song. This is prob my favorite debut album from a group.
aeipathy 5th-Mar-2019 03:51 am (UTC)
crown is the best for sure. when the barking came on in cat & dog i was driving and started cracking up so hard i thought i'd have to pull over

Didn’t want to like this group but the songs are bops ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I want to know whose idea was it to make them sound like vocaloids tho because I I literally cannot distinguish any of their vocals from each other no matter how hard I try, and I don’t know how I feel about that.
