    I was honestly confused on what BTS's debut album was. So I checked on the internet and it said that O!RUL8,2 was apperantly released in 2013. 2 KOOL 4 SKOOL was also released then I think.

    Anywho, I guess their debut album review will be for another day.

    Overall this album was VERY rap heavy. But honestly the instrumentals in alot of the songs were great that could help a person warm to the songs. About 3 vocal type songs.

    My personal ranking:


    1- N.O: I was contemplating on putting this as #1alongside the intro. The whole vibe was great! It was lit and could be used as an excercise song. This song made me feel overwhelmed in kind of a good way.

    2 - Intro: O!RUL8,2: Another favourite. RM speaking great words in English and transitioning to the rap. Lit indeed! Pity it was a bit short.

    3 - The rise of Bangtan: it has the chanting, which makes it ear catching. But the Bang bang tan tan, made me kind of surprised I guess.

    4 - If I ruled the world: I was about to call this one of my favourite songs on the albums. Its kind of similar to the rise of bangtan in a way. But then I listened to the album once more and cringed. 'EVERYBODY SAY HEY HO!! HEY HO!!
    Me: WTF was this! :confused:
    But I have to admit its kind of catchy.

    5 - BTS Cypher: an overall decent song. It instrumental reminded me of The Incredibles soundtrack. The rap is really good.

    6 - Outro: ORLU82/Coffee: the albums most boring songs. Can I mention....Listening to vocal line made me feel a bit breathless, because their vocals are a bit breathy. IMO

    Overall rating: 7/10

    EDIT: Forgot about satoori rap. Its between 3 and 4. The beggining engages you quickly.

    Here's We On

    The lyric translations leave a little to be desired though, they don't explain the word play
