A U CUBE release; ℗ 2021 CUBE ENTERTAINMENT, INC. / UNIVERSAL MUSIC LLC
This album is stylistically, musically, and thematically more cohesive than past albums and I think that’s one of its many strengths. The thematic progression of cold winter to blooming spring is not brand new, but (G)I-DLE hits every note so well that it feels refreshing all the same. Their vocal performances here have also seen growth and development and have exemplified that they ought not to be dismissed. Each member has really shown they are vocalists as well as performers. The lyrics also demonstrate true care for the message and the delivery that the group wants to convey for listeners which, for a self-producing group, feels more personal and intimate. Soyeon, Yuqi, and Minnie ought to be proud of the work they have done in producing this album. As a group that transcends genres, this comeback fits right in the pocket of what these girls do so well: provide their fans and new listeners alike a solid and immersive listening experience that bears multiple album repeats. And clocking in at 19 minutes, this album is three easy repeats within an hour. I Burn has placed itself quite easily at the top of (G)I-DLE’s already impressive discography and I look forward to seeing what they’ll do to reinvent themselves to top this.
GIDLE has always made great music, but they've truly reached a new level with I Burn. Many k-pop albums often feel like a loose collection of singles rather than a cohesive project. That doesn't mean they can't be enjoyable of course, but a focused vision with central themes makes for an incredible listening experience, and that's what we have with I Burn. Thematically and sonically, GIDLE take us on a journey. And with credits for lyrics, composition and/or arrangement on every track, they continue to prove they are more than skilled performers, but gifted artists as well, a rarity for the K-pop industry, especially for women.
American Nevie here.. I am so, so proud of my babies. This album is phenomenal!! PHENOMENAL!! They have truly outdone themselves this time with this masterpiece. The lyrics, vocals, rhythm and beat.. it’s all on point. And I’m so proud of Shuhua, I just have to say that. Her vocals are great and did you see that music video and performance!? I’m so proud 🥲 of all of these girls.. SO. PROUD! I love being Neverland. Let’s stay together forever my loves! 🤍❤️🖤
I love Idle! Their music is so original and off of the trend of normal kpop. They OWN dark concepts. This album is perfection, 3 of the members participated in writing and composing, all 6 slayed their vocals, loving everything about this!!!
The titles track is so pretty and a nice contradiction to the powerful song that Hann is. The b-sides are just the cherry on top to this album. They are all such pleasing songs to listen to!
(G)I-DLE certainly outdid themselves with this album. With every listen I feel like I am listening to each song for the first time again. Soyeon, Minnie, and Yuqi worked hard producing this album and their hard work certainly paid off. 10/10. Loved it.
they seem to get better with every comeback. definitely worth checking out! you can listen to these tracks pretty much any where i think.. parties, graduations, weddings, during a breakup, etc. 10/10
