2NE1 did something that is unusual in the Korean music scene today. They waited a whole year before they dropped their album. Now, Korea, this is what you call a comeback! I had a whole year to long for something new from these girls.

With this new album I am a little disappointed and a little satisfied. Disappointed that not all the tracks are new (five singles the girls released during the year and two remixes). Satisfied that the three singles they are promoting are addictive. They are fresh, they are tight, they are bouncing! They have reggeaton! That completely sold me over.

But really, I am happy they are back because I was getting sick with all the cutesy girl group songs. 2NE1 bring the UMF Korean girl group music often lacks.

Rating: ★★★½☆

Music is all I do: I work in music, I write about music, I listen to music.

    Have an issue reviewing actual Korean albums, because mini-album releases throw me out of whack. It's an issue with listening to half the album one year ahead of the album release, and it feeling like a tired concept.
