In this second installment of my Flip Thru & Chat series, BTS edition, I take you on a journey through the past to BTS’s first mini album ORUL82? This era boasts some memorable fan favorites such as “N.O,” “We On,” “If I Ruled the World,” and “Attack on Bangtan.” This album, along with their first release, has a darker, more gritty sound than their most recent albums. In particular, “If I Ruled the World” has a distinct laid back West Coast hip hop vibe punctuated by a funk-inflected bass line. V’s baritone voice singing over this beat is perfection.
The only thing that mars this era for me is the tragic styling, from the gold chains to the bandanas to the white-washed photography.
