The Bangtan Boys are back! And this time they’re here with their very 1st mini-album, and exciting moment in any rookie group’s career.
Their 1st mini-album is titled O!RUL8,2? Which translates to “Oh! Are You Late Too?”
There are 10 total tracks on the album, most of which are solid.
The reason it doesn’t qualify as a full album is because 3 of the tracks aren’t full tracks (01: Intro: O!RUL8,2?, 04: Skit: R U Happy Now?, 10: outro: Luv In Skool).
The entire album is solid. It’s primarily a hip-hop album with some nice R&B tracks spread throughout. The album opens with the dramatic, yet powerful Intro:O!RUL8,2?, and dives straight into the album’s title track “N.O“. The album is full of powerful hits and soothing ballads, enough to appeal to a variety of audiences.
My favorite tracks from O!RUL8,2? so far are Coffee, Rise of Bangtan, and ironically, Outro: Luv in Skool. I’m sure I’ll fall in love with more tracks soon.
If you haven’t checked out O!RUL8,2? yet, I suggest you do. You can listen to it through this YouTube channel, and if you like it, I suggest you purchase it from major Korean sites like Mel0n! You can also wait for the physical version of the album to be released tomorrow.
