I watched the new NCT Limitless video (randomly picked the dance version). These are my first impressions: the choreography was unnecessarily busy for the pace of the song. I was getting so distracted that I actually had to just close my eyes and listen to get a neutral feel of it.

 

It's good in some areas, definitely. It's strength is the chorus. Which is why I can see it's compared to EXO's music. EXO's songs have very dramatic/romantic chorus breaks. This song had it as well with how to instrumentals and vocals "climbed up" dramatically. Taeyeong(?) with that throat thing though (stank face inducing). One thing that alarmed me was that, to my newbie ear, no one outside of 2 or 3 voices stood out (again I'm just going off of just audio at this point). I was hearing the same voices I've heard in the other NCT songs which is probably why they stood out a bit. If you close your eyes and pretend you didn't know this was NCT, this release could've come from a number of groups. Right off the top of my head, I thought of 2 or 3 Baby Gen to 3rd Gen boy groups who could've sung this. It's not horrible but pretty standard with some style biting from their sunbaes. With very little tweaking it could have easily been any boy group singing this. Not the end of the world but something to keep in mind.

 

As far as the aesthetics go, they shouldn't have all been wearing red, dancing complicated steps in the dark. I know it's the dance version, but you should actually be able to see them dancing. After a while, they bled into each other with the red color. In fact that's really what stood out to me about the aesthetics. Busy.Red. Which is why I just had to close my eyes. Overall, an interesting mix of "ok", "good" and "mess". It could be a grower though if you completely dismiss the visual direction and don't care about who's singing it.

 

Meh. Don't know if I'll go to itunes on this one, but maybe I'll listen to the audio a couple more times. Oh and, I did finally see the rough version. Not as busy of course, but directionless and cheap looking (guess that's why its rough). Didn't add or subtract to my overall impressions.

As someone who wears glasses to see I fucking hate it when kpop idols wear fake glasses because they're "stylish" not just kpop idols anyone actually. I think they look fucking stupid and I hate it. You don't need them to see so stop taking something that a lot of us wish we didn't have to use and making it a trend. If you want to wear glasses so badly you can have my bad eyesight and I'll take your good eyesight. I hate that trend so fucking much.

Black Pearl Rania is too long of a name for the group. It should be shortened to BPR, Black Pearl or Rania. If the correct styling is RaNia then it could also be BPRN. Whichever way, the group's getting by mainly because of everything relating to Alex. Even the news of an original member returning was over shadowed by Alex-related issues.

I rly like the 90s concept NCT is trying to pull off, if just the styling was less tragic.

EXO isn't what they used to be. AFter lutaokris left it left a void in my heart as well and it still longs to be filled.

The different stylist and this website is not very friendly to maknae lisa.

But, I'm going to hold it down for her on my other accounts on other sites.

richard harris's dumbledore>>>>>>>Michael gambon's dumbledore
Harris played his role with the gentleness and wisdom you would expect from Dumbledore and he was exactly like I pictured him from the books. Gambon was so rough and harsh and I can't get myself to ever connect with him. I felt the complexity of Dumbledore's character got lost in his acting.

I hate every HP movie after Chamber of Secrets, especially Order of the Phoenix because it was my favorite book and they botched the battle at the ministry. They should've kept CC to direct all the movies

many people keep praising Hyorin for her "those who don't have talent don't deserve the luck" quote and call her a queen for it and keep using the gif to shade others but i think it is very dumb and selfish.

being born with innate talent is already very lucky, so for her to say that those who were already lucky enough to have a gift handed to them upon birth deserve even more luck while those who weren't lucky enough to be born talented don't deserve any luck is very selfish.

people who work hard deserve all the luck they can get, even if they weren't born with innate talent.

Koreans are sleeping in Limitless 
 
NCT are my favs but I recognize when a song is good and when it is bad and that song is the best of this blessed album.

CL has the most defensive, immature, delusional fans. Say anything that could be taken as slightly offensive and you're bombarded with "stop hating! she's an amazing rapper and singer and she has CHARISMA!!!11!!!1" stfu lifted sucks and she needs to stop screaming onstage

I'll never understand why K-pop fans bash Winner's discography and call their albums flops.
