    July 7, 2014 YES!!!! :D Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    I have been waiting for this day .... okay, actually I'd wait any day if I'm told VIXX will be making a comeback. :P And for good reason too. VIXX is back with their 4th single album 'Eternity' and I am proud to be an owner of one of (to me) arguably one of the best single albums to come out this year so far.

    After seeing the teasers, and then the MV for 'Eternity', I KNEW I just HAD to get this album. Not only because VIXX are truly incapable of making a bad song, but because the title song is very catchy.
    I was not disappointed when I played the album for the first time. All of the VIXX boys match every song perfectly. I can't honestly fault any part of ANY of the songs o the album. They are all just THAT good.

    The album packaging is really nice as well. It's nothing special (the packaging, not the photo book) but the album is really neat, the typical front cover, photo book on the right side and CD on the left. The photo book is filled with FULL PAGE pictures, which is truly amazing in itself. And all the boys look amazing too (and just gonna put it out there, I cannot be the only one that can't get over Ravi's new hair!! *Insert Fan Girl Squeal Here*)

    I don't normally do a separate paragraph for the photo card, or in this case photo CD, but I think it is worth an honourable mention. The actual CD is your photo card. I know VIXX does this, because they did it with their Voodoo album as well, but I just think that it is very innovative and sets VIXX apart from other Kpop groups (not that their already set apart because of their kick butt music, but you know what I mean :P). I'll admit that I was tempted to buy an open album to insure I got the member CD I wanted, but honestly, the suspense is SOOOOOOO much more worth it. :)

    The only thing that bothers me with this album of the little plastic CD holder thing that the CD clips to. I don't like how it leaves an indent in the photo book. But that's just me and one of my pet peeves about Kpop packaging :P

    Overall, I would rate this album a 9.9/10.
    9.9 ... only because I an going to wait for another VIXX comeback to be able to give it a 10/10 :P

    {Perfect album. WOULD RECOMED YOU GIBE IT A SHOT. WILL NOT DISSAPOINT!}

    July 7, 2014 Alright Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
    I'll admit that I only purchased this album for myself because I had to buy one for my friend as well.
    Before I start my review I would just like to say that, it IS a good album, if you like sort of ballad music rather than upbeat-ish songs.
    I was buying this album expecting some of the songs to have a Sistar feel to them (meaning upbeat, hip-pop feel) but they were mainly ballad songs. The song 'One Way Love' did have a sort of Sistar 'Alone' vibe to it.

    Although the music style wasn't my cup of tea, I did like a few songs like 'one way love' or 너 밖에 몰라 (how it appears on the track list), 'Lonely' and 'Red Lipstick' or 립스틱 짙게 바르고 (how it appears on track list) which features Zico of Block B.

    The album packaging was very pretty though. Although at first it was kind of difficult to get the actual box open because it was a tight fit, the actual insides of the album were very nice. You get a cute little photo book, a small-ish poster and a decent sized photo/post card thing.

    Overall, even though I do not listen to the music style often. It was a cute little album that, myself personally, can learn to love. I rate the album 6/10
    But for anyone who is a die hard Sistar or Hyorin fan, I will recommend the album, because of its difference to kpop music we are hearing now.
    And to anyone who prefers ballad style songs, THIS album is for you!!

    July 7, 2014 AMAZING!!!! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    okay, first of all, WOW.
    Block B has yet again failed to disappoint us with an album. (and I am not just saying this because I am a die hard BBC :P)
    Block B is one of those groups that brings something different to the plate in terms of kpop. They are one of the goofiest groups I have come along in a while. That's what makes this group that little bit better :P

    Firstly, the songs in the album, OMG. Would not have expected anything less from Block B. Its everything any BBC wants in an album and more. The title track 'Nililimambo' or 닐리리맘보 (as is it displayed in the track list) is a kick butt way to start off the album that pulls you in with that unique Block B sound. The second track (my personal favourite Block B song of ALL time) 'mental breaker' (in my opinion, shows off what the guys in Block B do best. It's a really catchy song, it has almost a summery vibe to it by the way it sounds.

    The packaging of the album was not expected (in a good way of course :P). Then I ordered the album I was surprised by the packaging as I thought it was doing to be similar to their 1st and 2nd mini albums (a small pamphlet design) but I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived. The actual album has the CD attached to the front of it, while it has a slip pocket over the front to protect it. The photo book, however, is loose from the actual packaging (not loose as in separate, but loose as in not connected to the hard cover) so it easily slips out if you don't hold the album a certain way. But it really doesn't make me like the album any less.

    Overall I rate the album a 9.9/10.
    9.9 ONLY because I am waiting for another Block B comeback to give a 10/10 to :P

    July 7, 2014 Perfect Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    BTS has done it again! Releasing another album that I am going to be hooked on!
    I LOVE this BTS album. I was hesitant of whether to buy it but I am so glad I followed my gut feeling.

    BTS has yet to disappoint me with any of their title tracks and 'Boy in Luv' is not about to be an exception. Although I DO love the title track, the song I like most on the album is 'just one day' or 하루만 (as it is shown in the track list). it is a big difference from BTS previous music choices. That's probably why it stands out to me the most. Rather that being a hip-hoppy tune, it is rather mellow and absolutely beautiful.

    The packaging of the album is pretty amazing too. The packaging style is similar to their previous albums but this one is much larger and held shut by magnets. The photo book is HUGE, one of the biggest photo books I have seen in a kpop album for a while. The photos are amazing featuring the BTS boys looking absolutely amazing. The album also comes with a group photo card AND an individual member photo card, which are connected together.

    Overall, the album is really good. It has typical BTS features, such as the skits they do to break up their track list. I would definitely recommend this album to anyone who likes hip-hop (I may even be getting my non-kpop fan friends to like BTS :P).
    If you are an ARMY, the DEFINITELY get this album. WILL NOT DISSAPOINT! :)

    July 7, 2014 Catchy Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    I decided to buy this album because I had been hooked on the title track 'Loving U' for months before I decided to purchase it, and I have not been disappointed.
    The album is a nice mix of two new songs, and revamped remixes of previous Sistar songs.
    The photo book is amazing, featuring cute pictures of the 4 Sistar girls. It's filled with nice bright summery colours which fits perfectly with the concept of "Summer Special". The pictures are also decent sized so you don't have to put the book 2cm away from your face to be able to see it properly :P
    Overall, I rate this album a 7/10.
    Sistar has yet failed to disappoint with this new album, will definitely be getting more Sistar stuff in the future :)

    July 7, 2014 Boy, you better dance with me! Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    Ill admit that I decided to buy this album after liking JB and Jr. in Got7. But I am soooo happy that I decided to buy this album.
    The album packaging is nothing really spectacular, its what you would expect from a regular Kpop album, but the songs on the other hand are very catchy. It also comes with a random photo card, I got the group one.
    Ill admit that I was not to blown away by the title track 'Bounce', but I was suppressed by 'before this song ends' or 이 노래가 끝나기 전에 (as shown in the track list) which features Suzy from MissA.
    Overall I would rate the album a 6/10, only because the packaging is mediocre, but other than that, I give the album a huge thumbs up!

    July 7, 2014 Not What I Expected (in a good way :D) Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    Okay, I honestly don't know where to start....
    First of all, these boys are all bias list wreckers, and the album is really, REAAAAALLLLY good :)
    For me, it's not often that I like an entire album rather than just liking the title song, but this album proved me otherwise.
    All the songs on the album are really good, really catchy and you can pretty much listen to them anytime.
    Apart form the actual songs on the album, the album packaging is really innovative compared to other albums I have seen. It as a unique star shape (which is a bummer to store, but is so worth it) which sets it aside from the other albums coming out at the same time. It also comes with a random photo card, which I am happy to say I got my bias, Jackson :P
    My favourite song on the album would have to be 'follow me' or 따라와 as it is listed in the track list.
    I don't know why exactly the song stood out to me, but is definitely worth a listen :)
    overall, I would rate the album a 7/10.
    Will definitely be following these boys future releases :)

    July 7, 2014 AWESOME! :D Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    I will admit that at first I told my self that I wasn't going to get hooked on any new rookie groups. But I was SOOOOOOO happy that I didn't listen to myself :P This is the first BTS album that a have brought, and I can tell you now that I will definitely be buying the rest.
    All the songs on the album are really catchy, and you cant help but to do a little dance to them whenever you listen to it. Favourite song on the album is 'We are Bulletproof Pt.2'. I like the hiphop-iness that it has which is very different form what most Kpop groups are doing now; it makes them stand out from the rest.
    Overall, it is an amazing album for Kpop fans old and new. Will definitely be following these boys future albums!! :D
