After a ton of listens I feel Mayday! Mayday! should have been the title track, it's a lot more interesting than Only One.

It's strange, but the beginning of Not over you reminds me of Believe in love. The way she sings it. Think I'm the only who will think this :) but the first thing I thought when I heard it was: Believe in love influence :)

I like how the album sounds different from the current K-pop sound.
I really like Mayday!Mayday! and The Shadow.
No regrets in preordering the album :)

This album was really unexpected, at least for me! I mean, they didn't even promote it properly, I wonder why...? :/

I think BoA has taken the right direction with this kind of music for this album. With the recent exposure on K-Pop star show as a judge, she may have garnered some new fans and such therefore trying to appeal to a wide audience with this kind of song rather than a dance heavy beat sounding song.

So hopefully all the exposure she has gotten through the past year will help boost her as a music artist or something along those lines.

But yeah, hope the digital sales will be steady and her physical releases too in this heavy idol saturated industry.

BoA's biggest "competition" seems to be Psy. I personally am not upset at her not pushing past his no.1 spot on Mnet and Melon. Gangnam Style is just sweeping the wave in Korea right now. It isn't too popular amongst international fans, besides the ones that have known Psy for a while and know it isn't a beauty contest with him. Psy just puts out catchy songs with a MV that makes you laugh, he is a comedian-singer after all.

I think, coming from a long time fan stand point, I feel like this album is so unusual for the "category" it's going into and yet, it's awesome. If people in Korea and international Kpop fans can't see 1.How amazing BoA simply is through the album and 2.How it's time to step slowly away from the dance song that repeats the title phrase over and over again, because it's all starting to run into eachother, then they are missing out.

This is an album I hope BoA is proud of because I am proud of HER for it! It's such a breath of fresh air for me, you have no idea! I think, no matter where she places on the charts, we should all rejoice in the fact that the BoA we all fell in love with is making some awesome songs once again. (not saying previous was bad but...it had it's moments).

She will always be our BoA. Singer, dancer, our everything, but as a human being she has touch our hearts in more ways then one and without meeting a hefty majority of us.

Only One mv is really good. BoA again executes every dance move precisely, and I got to give credit to Nappytabs for the awesome choreography. Only One really brought back the younger days of BoA (music- and look-wise). I'm pretty happy with this comeback.

Totally agree with what you said Cori. I am so happy to see BoA coming back with such power and the vibrance and the energy that she possesses. I really enjoy this album and I can understand why she said she felt like aging 10 years during the production of this album

Putting charts aside and that she's doing great there,
I want to say that I'm really proud of BoA wiriting anc composing songs.
I don't know why but this album gave me that feeling when I listened to 'Deluxe'. How it reminded me, I don't know haha.
But summing everything together it's very lovely album suited for various public.
Her fresh and high vocal brings me that nostalgia, I really like it.
