Discussion in 'K-pop' started by squirrelfriend, Jul 6, 2016.
In regards to filler, I'd say their mini albums aren't great, but Twicetagram is pretty good.
I don't defend/agree with the taste comment but I think like @Reboot said K-Pop is different these days. In SNSD days no group was really releasing high quality albums, so K-Pop was more about title tracks and less about albums.
But it's 2018 now. Most of the K-acts, even the flop groups like CLC and DIA, have really stepped up album-wise these days. That unfortunately can't be said about Twice.
I'm not worried to be honest. It took Wonder Girls a lot of mini albums (and a failed US campaign but let's not go there) before they released solid albums starting with Wonder World. And Reboot was released almost by the end of their career.
Plus I really like twicetagram ddddddd.
My comments were directed to @Shockbox, not so much the people discussing Twice's questionable album tracks, which is completely fair game because they are questionable. Just hate the double standard that when his fave is on top it's all hunky dory, but they're dethroned and suddenly Korea needs taste.
My comment was actually nothing to do with GG. It was actually to do with the other current gen girl groups that actually release killer title tracks AND fantastic albums. And yet they don't get the sales and recognition that Twice do.
So yeah, maybe stop being so defensive.
I was thinking about Wonder Girls yesterday in regards to album quality too. Like you said, they didn't really get amazing until Wonder World so maybe it'll be the same for Twice. Even WG's singles weren't that amazing until Be My Baby, but I imagine that is an unpopular opinion.
My "favourite" (e.g. least worst) Twice release is probably Signal. It's nice enough, but then again I have a soft spot for the title track. I really regret buying the physical release of Twicestagram two weeks ago but it has the amazing 24/7 so I'll just take that and the photo cards and run.
Twice learnt from the best though xx
I have all TWICE albums and love all of them... everyone should be like me nn
Yeah, maybe just put me on mute or something because you seem to be incapable of handling someone disliking your faves without getting all bitchy. I don't have time for it.
Gladly will follow that advice, but I also live for the hypocrisy.
And that's the thing, Twice have the potential to be totally amazing. There is something about them as a group that draws me to them. In particular Jihyo. But the quality of the albums and even some title tracks (Cheer Up) that are just piss poor. Twicetagram is the only album of theirs that I could listen to from start to finish.
Sis you literally quoted a post that mentioned SNSD in it. And you're notorious for being one of the more... vocal SNSD stans in all of KPJ. Or course, we'd assume you're pressed that Twice broke SNSD's record.
Plus I don't think I ever saw you post about these other current generation girl groups and their amazing music - maybe except Red Velvet...
A post about Twice becoming the best selling girl group in Korea. Why would I be pressed about them breaking the record? I don't care about sales or records. I'm not twelve and have nothing better to do with my time.
And no, I don't comment on a lot of the other groups because I don't actually have that much time to keep up with all current releases. I've only just gotten round to going through the CLC discography.
I was a bit harsh on my assessment of their album tracks because you can usually salvage at least one other track, it’s just that they clutter their releases with so many midtempos and ballads that they seriously just don’t have the range for.
Are you getting your life to these bops on bops?
From what I can remember, there were a few good songs here and there yeah. I got more into Astro during my new K-Pop discovery.
we kinda knew it all along though, didn't we? I mean....
I love Twice but I can't help but scream when they're compared to Wonder Girls cause this comes car-crashing into my subconscious.
And it's not even a quirky old vs new thing since SNSD has their fair share of.... members with unique talents. Wonder Girls were just a rare case of most members being well-rounded. Even Miss A were't well-rounded like WG were. I don't think Twice essentially has the certain figureheads in the group to push them somewhere like Reboot, but they don't really need to do a Reboot or something like that. They have their lane.
Twice has so many bops but I don't care for them as individuals.
