it breaks my heart to say this because loona has been one of my faves since new by yves, and this just isnt doing them justice. this is everything i hated about so what and why not but worse. i disliked so what but at least the bridge was so top tier
loona had this GREAT thing going on where they were the best, vocally and dance (butterfly) and they had a unique dream pop thing going on. ever since after so what (so what was still decent and had a top tier bside collection) but why not just butchered that.
everything up till so what was perfect,
so what had a decent song and the bsides were top tier
why not was trash through and through and half of the bsides were no good (i physically cannot listen to hide and seek or oops without cringing) but at least voice/star was loona again.
a comprehensive break down of this album for me what would be something of this sort:
1. & :
skip cuz i never really listen to the opening thingie anyways haha
no wanted it to stop the second it hit the chorus. i love youha but she did a terrible job with this song istg i hate it so bad. it sounds like a left over everglow/dreamcatcher song and not in a good way. their vocals DO NOT SHINE ANYWHERE IN IT. i hate loona songs with chants in them because they add NOTHING.
2/10 cuz the girls are pretty
a decent song, definitely getting loona vibes from it, nothing too special and not my vibes. could easily pass for a rv or wekimeki type song. cant complain too much, its the closest to the masterpiece that was vivid we've gotten so far.
6/10 decent but not spectacular.
4. be honest:
sounds like an advertisement at some parts and would not have been anything near any of the other loona tracks. rv vibes still shining. at least it suits the vocals. the yoo-hoo-hoo parts are very nice. like so what, nice song parts but over all weird.
5/10 only cuz yoo-hoo-hoo has me sold
5. DANCE ON MY OWN:
BOP BOP BOP BOP BOP BOP BOP
10/10 no explanation needed
6. a different night:
a solid ost, i love it. vocals shining and it grows on you. watching the night as you drive down the streets listening to it would be amazing and im considering going out only to listen to different night
9/10 could be boring to some, but i love it
BEAUTIFUL UR A STAR UR A STAR. CAN SEE IT ON ++ OR xx THAT IS THE BIGGEST COMPLIMENT YOU COULD EVER GET
mediocre album as a whole, but at least i get 3 songs to listen to
