According to the listener, “Crush” is a fast, upbeat song that reminds one of “I am the Best” and “Can’t Nobody.”
“Come Back Home,” has a pop, reggae, R&B fusion feel. The listener states; “It’s a very fresh song, and the verse and chorus are very memorable. The members’ vocals were amazing in the song.”
The listener compared “Gotta Be You” to “Go Away” and “Love is Ouch,” and revealed that the song features a Bom-like chorus that is supposed to be very memorable.
“Hope to Live” is said to be a slow R&B song just like “Lonely,” “It Hurts,” and “Missing You.” Listener’s praised Dara‘s voice in this song quite a bit.
“Good Girl” is revealed to have the same feeling as CL‘s solo single, “The Baddest Female,” and is kept in a mid-tempo R&B song style.
The next song, “Mental Breakdown,” (CL’s solo song) is a hip-hop song that showcases the leader’s outstanding rapping skills.

“Scream” is the Korean version of the Japanese single released some time ago.
The secret listener claimed that “Baby I Miss You,” is going to be the fans most favorite song from the album. The person said, “There wasn’t a person at the event that didn’t like the song; their reaction to the song was good. It’s like a very chic and fashionable woman, it gives off a more matured and sophisticated feel of the songs found in the first mini-album (like the girl in the first mini-album grew up into the woman in this song).” and ensured, “It’s a song that you’d want to listen to over and over.”
2NE1’s second full length album will be released on February 27th.
