YOU'RE MISSING OUT! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
THIS BIG BANG CD IS AMAZING! I have recently just known about these talented guys. They're english is very impressive in the album. Although there are only 8 songs on this cd, I can imagine the hard work they put into it, translating the songs into english and making it fit well with the song and the melody. My money was well spent. You're missing out if you haven't bought it yet. p.s. I was hyperventaliting when I got the cd, it was an exciting day for me :)

Hip-Hop Done Right! Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
I am not normally a fan of Rap & Hip-Hop mostly because it is generally derivative, (stolen), repetitious, and mostly harsh on the ears. Well these guys are SMOOTH! You feel the soulful energy driving forward without it sounding like every other soul song. Sure there are some classic conventions we have come to expect from Hip-Hop that are included in this collection but none are 'done to death' like many others. The vocal ability is there but remember it's about the soul not who can trill or slide the most. The rapping is full of feeling too. I know that's not easy for most Asian people to do naturally. As an actual Urban Black Dude, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, I feel more than qualified to recommend this record. The only problem I have with it are some of the electro rhythms especially on the last track, Always, it could have had more zing.

Big Bang-ing Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
This should most definately be a part of any Big Bang fan's collection.
This is a mixture of a new song 'How Gee' and with the exception of 'Lies' all of the songs are sung in English.
It is something different from their previous mini albums but it does allow the fans to see how much the band members have developed especially in their fluency of the English language.
The album in itself has been very Perry-fied for any YG Entertainment fan, they will know Perry.
Some of the English lyrics sound either a bit wonky or too cheesy and should I say raunchy but it is hardly boring or dull.
As almost all of the songs is something I have heard before just in a different language.
What does make me wonder before was why they named this album as 'For The World' when it is going to be released in Japan.
But now that I've listened to it, I understand perfectly.
They sing in English and thus, it is for the rest of the world to understand what they're singing about.
