it kinda disappointing for avex to lump every single she release prior to her hiatus on this album with a such a big album title, "who's back". with such tracklist, no one would even care if she is back with only just one new track.

 

OMG! That was so funny to me! But I agree completely. It's been awkward lately with her Japanese albums...like when "Identtity" came out, it was such a big title, but the album was so...dark, cover-wise. Now the covers are light and pretty, but the tracklist is dark because it is the exact same ones we bought previously in the singles with one new song. With that, who would care about her being back? It's true. =/

The photos are the only good things from this album.... 

 

But I do look forward to see BoA performing at her live tour soon. It has been quite some time :)

Music Jam's Wesley Steed and Chris Wahle worked on "First Time" w/ BoA:

Wesley Steed's soundcloud (for his compositions):

Not really digging his sound, I prefer Chris Wahle's works, his soundcloud is:

Wahle recently composed "Paper Heart" for BoA's SM labelmate f(x):

 

Steed recently composed SJ's D&E's "Ten Years":

 

Any idea what to expect for "First Time"?

Paper Heart is one of the four tracks I enjoyed from f(x)'s new album. The USB covers should've been the Who's Back covers. It actually looks more like BoA. Is it me or does some of Steed's works sound the same based on the three songs I heard? I do like Wahle's songs. If BoA wants to work with foreign composers then she should try Sia. I would love to hear her sing something like "My Love" or "I'm In Here" or "Academia."

I'm so disappointed in so many things involving this album. I hate the title, it reminds me of all the American pop princesses who release singles a couple years apart and are like, omg I'm back! I know BoA is considered in the same type of category but she has so much talent and her agency could easily come up with something more fresh than "Who's Back".

 

The cover design is absolutely horrible. You need zero design skills to create a cover like that and from how beautiful a lot of her past covers have been (Message/Call My Name, Only One, etc), this is just dismal in comparison. The fact that there are hardly any new songs also really irks me. It's not going to help album sales at all if they just recycle her past hits, as good as the songs have been. If they had kept going with some fresh material and concepts, this could've been a completely different "comeback".

 

I agree with everything everyone else has been saying about her leaving Avex. They're obviously not putting in any effort for BoA.

 

Like everyone else has also been saying, the only good things that are coming out of this album are the photos. She looks flawless as always.

God
Is the same BoA from IDENTITY singing this?
I mean... even when she was a kid her songs were way more mature than this.

It sounds really similar to Masayume....Oh god...I was hoping First Time would be good. I pray she releases a Korean album or Japanese album soon after ._. I'm going to pass on this ........

Thanks for sharing! My initial thought is that it sounds cute and upbeat but I might dislike it later. I will also wait for the whole song to come out. haha BoA is so cute in the video and I like her glasses.

IDK CALL ME CRAZY, but I think First Time sounds pretty good! I am surprised! 

 

I would have preferred a hot dance track but I will take this over a bland ballad any day.
