I actually dig 2NE1’s mini albums more than their albums, and I actually use to really like their first mini, titled 2NE1 (wow, who broke their brain coming up with this title?). Now… not so much so. It’s plays better than both of their full length albums, but I think it mostly has a lot to do with the novelty of it wearing off. I love FIRE and I Don’t Care is my favorite song from them. It is actually the song that got me interested in them in the first place, because I didn’t really care for them when they first came out; just looked at them like a knock-off one-member short all girl BIGBANG. However, after In The Club the songs just get a bit meh for me. I do like them, they aren’t bad, they just come across as a little corny and don’t stand out as much as the first three songs. It’s a really decent mini album though, an this or their second mini are the albums I would suggest people listen to to get into them. Even though there isn’t much to suggest considering how minuscule their disco is.

The long awaited second album from 2NE1. I feel like I was waiting eons for this, and damn near gave up on them putting out another album. It’s unfortunate that they’re disbanded, their discography is dreadfully small to. CRUSH is their second and last album; it’s definitely a step up from To Anyone. However, it’s not as good as I hoped it would be or maybe I just expected more after such a long wait. I feel like more effort was put into their singles and mini albums, so even though it’s better than their first it still falls short by being a weirdly uninteresting and flat listen with very little replay value. I found myself just bored. There were a few highlight’s, like the more slower paced songs. The single tracks were decent, but the stand out track to me was CL’s solo. I wish they could have did more music wise because I really liked their look and their sound. Oh well, it was good while it lasted.

I liked this album when it first came out. It did take a little minute for me to jump on the 2NE1 bandwagon, but when I don’t care dropped I was sold (I absolutely loved that song). To Anyone is pretty mediocre, especially compared to their second album CRUSH and both their mini albums. After repeated listens (aside from a handful of tracks), it’s just boring and seems like a really short album or listen (even with the tracks I didn’t like so didn’t bother reviewing). I would suggest their mini albums or CRUSH if anyone is new to 2NE1.
