- KTL is tragic, just... They really picked the worst song for the title track

- "Kick it" is bad but it manage to be better than KTL The formula is the same all the time though, Jennie opening, some lisa, Rosé "intense part", throw in some Jisoo, repeat with the other songs. Having a sound is good, sounding the same in every song is not. I've heard both KTL & Kick it before (with BP and to some extend with 2NE1, if I want a throwback I have 2NE1 disco)

- "Don't Know What To Do" is nice. it could do well in night club, half tipsy, dancing like no one is watching. Should have been the title track tbh

- "Hope not" is nice in a forgettable way, it's a good filler

- That "DDDD" remix... no, just no

Don't know what to do or Kick it should've been the title track.

KTL grows on you like all the previous BP title tracks. Not everyone's cuppa tea though. I really like 'Hope Not', the girls sounded good in that and they could have done a MV with proper story line or something with it. wished it was the other title track instead but guess ballads don't do as well (see: Stay).

That DDDD remix should've never existed but some mentioned it's probably for Coachella.

now that you mention Rose's solo... what happened to the other girls' solos that were promised after Jennie? Or did I imagine that?

ok so basically i dislike only title track and the rest of album is nice! i really like jisoo's vocals in "kick it".

While I don't want BP to flop I do wish something of YG's would so they would see a need for major release structural change. Somehow despite everything they manage to cultivate a mystique which allows them to treat their artists like this.

Well their female ones as didn't one of the boy groups have multiple comebacks this year? I just want to save all the girls TBQH

How is it that the DDDD remix is the dopest thing on here? The other tracks I ended up skipping a minute and a half in. Most of it sounds like their previous mini except boring....

They really peaked with Whistle/PWF and their vocals are becoming more grating to my ears with each release.

I actually quite like Kill This Love. It's fun garbage.

Hope Not reminds me too much of my ex & got right in the guts.

So, basically they released an EP of what would have been considered album filler. The only thing here that I'm loving is "Don't Know What to Do" and even that is just okay. That being said, it all slots nicely into their discography and now "Stay" doesn't sound so out of place.

Kick It reminds me of big bang it's nice to hear them on a more laid back song
Dkwtd- had me till the chorus that loud piercing noise is a no from me. jisoo sounds great on this track tho and i like it overall
Hope not- finally a soft song! i've been waiting for one since stay. should have been a Jisoo & Rose duet

these b sides of all better than square up b sides. I'm surprised how much I like these songs on the first listen — kill this love may or may not grow on me.

They had 9 months, and this is the best they could come up with? Tragic.gif

"Don't Know What To Do" is the only track that is not a disaster, but it sounds like an outdated Zedd song.

Man I feel kinda bad for all the people that bought tickets for their tour. Only 13 original songs and half of them sound the same or suck.

OMG I was wondering what about DKWTD sounded so familiar, you really hit the nail right on the head with that description LMAO
