I'm still trying to get into the album but I still think it's all over the place. Regular honestly sounds out of place in the album. Another one is Replay (PM 01:27), which sounds very LDN Noise and I do like it but it does not actually fit the album. The two slower tracks Knock On and No Longer were great and were added there to showcase the vocal line but these should have been placed somewhere towards the end of the album. Highlight for me was that interlude and the transition to My Van, which sounds dark, trippy and such a mood-changer. I wishe we got more of this. The iconic rap duo Taeyong and Mark spitting fire on that track is on another level. Come Back sounds better in Japanese but it's nice to hear a Korean version. They should have recorded one for Dreaming too. Not a fan of Fly Away With Me, as I am more familiar with the superior version by Jordan Fisher. Run Back 2 U sounds so dated considering this is some track they recorded back when they were trainees.

Same.

I prefer the English version in the end just because of Haechan's part:

Hoppin' out casket fresh, looking like a fashion show

That is actually my favorite line as well! Along with:

I be walking with the cheese, that's that queso.

The lyrics to "Regular" might be cheesy but it gave us so many iconic lines. New I woke up like this confirmed. :cry:

Re-released already.



Not sure what to think of the lead single. It's definitely less catchy than their other singles but it still kinda slaps.

Simon Says is pretty cool - and my actual name, so I'm living - and I like the reshuffling of the tracklist, the album works so well in it's new form. 'Welcome to my playground' is pretty cool.

Oh, and Johnny is so hot.

"Simon Says" is not bad but it's definitely one of their weakest singles yet.

^I agree with the tracklist issue, it flows & surprisingly sounds SO MUCH better now.
