    Warning: this is NOT a professional review! This is just my opinion and how I feel about the songs. I'm writing these reviews down as I listen to each song. Hope you guys enjoy! (Won't be in order!)

    Superstar-
    the second the song started I thought of Mino's "BODY". I like the instrumental to this song. It flows pretty good and it's something I can see my self getting lit too. when he started singing "I ain't got no body" I once again reminded of Mino. Lol. His tone in this song was quite pleasing to listen to! Easily catchy chorus that has a little "nursery rhyme" feel to it especially with his voice in particular. Over all I give this song a 9/10. I really like this one!

    Bullshit-
    The beginning reminds me of zutter and I can't stand that song. Lol. Once again, the beat is good! However, once I got to the chorus I was given a mix of "GO, Zutter( beat) and coup d'etat in terms of lyrics. I wasn't too fond of the chorus beat drop, but his overall tone in the song isn't terrible and grating. I give it a 7/10.

    Middle fingers up-
    Immediately got nursery rhyme feels from the instrumental. Surprisingly enough, it made me feel... Happy? Like it had a reminiscent feel to it. Best drop is fire. Period. I almost found myself Milly rocking and dabbing to the beat. XD like for the title, it sounds happy af. His vocals.... I'm iffy on at some parts, when it got high, I kinda flinched. My right ear actually started throbbing a bit. I give it a 9/10 definitely a bop. I like the way it makes me feel despite the fact that he's no doubt telling people to fuck off. XD

    Outro-
    I love the way it starts out. His singing made me laugh, it's adorable. Really! I know it's a serious song but his vocals in this is just so funny to me! I feel like I've heard this instrumental before, but he put his own spin on it. around the second verse It sounded like Mino spitting in BODY. Not even kidding. Him and Mino sound so much a like and rap so much a like in certain songs that it's kinda scary. I liked the lyrics. They're very good and well written. A very good outro and way to close off an album in my opinion. I'll give it a 6/10 his singing was hard to take serious in a majority of the song along with some raises in his vocal octave that was hard to listen to. I feel like I'd only listen to this on a rainy day and when I'm depressed, deep in thought or just melancholy.

    Untitled, 2014-
    I'm not too big on slow songs surprisingly. I LOVE his singing in this song! It's lovely! The piano was a wonderful edition as well. I would dance to this if it played in a club or prom some where. Really not much to say about this one. Simple song, simple beat with very good vocals. 9/10 from me!!

    Overall this album was amazing! He worked very hard on it and that shows. I didn't like some parts and there are tracks I probably won't listen to again, but a lovely edition to the kpop world nonetheless! Give it a listen and share your thoughts below!

    I kinda agree with some of your points. My review:

    1. Middle Fingers Up
    MY FAVE SONG FROM THIS ALBUM. From the lyrics, the beat, his rap, all perfect. I just love how he still included his peace minus one trademark and peace minus one = middle finger. LOVE IT. And agree, this song really made me feel happy idk why lol. 10/10.

    2. Bullshit
    Agree with you about the song is similar with Zutter. I don't quite get the lyrics. But the beat is so good and his rap is good as well. Not my fave at this moment, but probs one of the song that I'll play thousands time in the future. 8/10.

    3. Superstar
    This is so good as well. I kinda see BIGBANG could probs sing this type of song. I like the lyrics. The lonely, famous superstar Kwon Jiyong who needs a rest. 8.5/10.

    4. Untitled, 2014
    His singing voice in this is gold omg. This is a masterpiece. I just love how simple it is. Just piano tune, and his voice. Amazing. And true, this is the kinda slow song that will be played in prom or sth lol. 9/10.

    5. Outro: Divina Commedia
    The best one lyrics wise. It's just so deep. But he sounds so drunk in this lol. Typical GD voice. But I kinda like it. 9/10

    I'm just going to say that Untitled 2014 is already one of my best songs of 2017 (alongside Surans wine, Winner's fool, Taeyeon's fine and BTS spring day), this song caught me by surprise. It was not only emotional (I haven't checked the subtitles), his voice was perfect too, in fact I never knew he could sing that well. I love it.
