Big Bang - Made The Full Album (Normal Edition) + Poster in Tube(1)Our Price: US$37.99List: US$49.99Save: US$12.00 (24%)1 people found this review helpful
April 22, 2017 Worth the 3-year wait.
MADE as a full release album is probably the most amazing KPop album I could own. It contains tracks, which, over the course of three years were basically all releases with MVs. The unreleased tracks: If You and Girlfriend are both equally amazing as the otheres and If You expresses such deep emotions. The album came in a high-quality outer box with all the contents neatly inside. The canvas smells strongly of ink, however, and without airing the album might smell bad too.
It comes with a photo card which is matte cardboard of decent-quality print, a fold-out poster contained within the base of the canvas and a huge photo book containing photos of only one of the members with their name embossed on the cover--all contained within tissue paper sealed with a MADE sticker. Unfortunately, my friend and I purchased at the same time and received two albums with the same person as the photobook. Totally worth it still and would consider repurchasing.
EXO Vol. 3 Repackage - Lotto (Korean Version)1 people found this review helpful
April 22, 2017 Great Album Overall
EXO's Lotto repackage is one of the best albums I own--if not just for the songs. The album a simple design with the CD on the left of the inside and the photobook on the right. It is secured by glue so if you are too rough it might be possible to accidentally tear the photobook out but this would require a great accident or intention to do so. The photo card is really stylish with curved corners, which I find more appealing than pointed corners (less chance of bending). The photobook contains some really high quality prints of the members of the band in both greyscale AND colour. There are not too many photos, unfortunately, but all the songs are good so I can forgive it.
BTS Vol. 1 - Dark&WildApril 22, 2017 Great Album and Content
BTS' Dark & Wild is a really great album showing the diversity of BTS as more than just heavy-beat hip-hop artists. This album is quite large about 25cm x 25cm x 3cm. The box is sturdy and smooth with holographic colouring beneath the visual texture over the cover. It's magnetic along one side to keep it closed.
This album comes with 2 photo cards which are glossy and high quality with one of a member and one of the band. The photo book is dramatic and detailed with many pages showcasing each of the members--as expected of a first full-release album.
A ribbon is used to pull the photo book up out from in front of the CD.
Definitely a great purchase for lovers of BTS as each member gets some spot light in the photobook.
Seung Ri Mini Album Vol. 2 - Let's Talk About Love (Random Cover Version)(1)Our Price: US$22.99List: US$29.99Save: US$7.00 (23%)April 22, 2017 Great Album, but unsure about Quality.
Contains some great songs by SeungRi. My favourites are GG Be, Gotta Talk to U, Love Box and Come to My. It really showcases SeungRi's talent as an artist and stops people from underestimating his skill as an artist. The album has a magnetic case that keeps it closed and opens into three segments with the tracklist on the left, a photobook in the centre and the CD on the right.
This album does not have a photo card, but the photobook is really nice. It's slot into a sleeve from the back page allowing you to turn the pages as if it was part of the second segment but is still removable. My copy has a really weird back that looks as if it was meant to be glued to something or as if the cover was ripped off even though it was sealed in plastic. The binding is visible and you can feel the glue. It contains some really great photos of SeungRi and the lyrics to his songs.
Worth a purchase if you want to support SeungRi.
BTS Official Light Stick - Army Bomb (Version 2)7 people found this review helpful
April 22, 2017 Great Compared to Ver 1.
Got the light stick within a few weeks. It's great quality and not disassembled like the first light stick. You need to have 3 AAA batteries, which is pretty annoying and I would expect it to be provided with a product costing $50USD. It vibrates once upon being turned off to notify you that it IS off and not in a different flashing mode. The light stick can keep solid light, flash slowly, flash quickly and light and dim. It doesn't change colours. Maybe something else can do that. I like that the plastic beads are not as annoying and loud and are statically charged to stick to the sides of the globe. The texture on the handle is really nice to hold and it fits better with the globe than the previous version. The fuse of the bomb is also bonded to the globe which is also better as there is lower risk of it being cut off or removed. Overall, I think it's worth buying if you are sure you want a light stick and are willing to pay $50USD.
