/listening to that pre-debut song again/
Ugh god I really wish top would release an album.
You have no idea.
I loved Top before I even knew he was in a boy band, lol. He was my entry into Big Bang and I’ve been waiting for a solo ever since. One that will probably never happen, despite a vague comment from him saying ‘perhaps I’ll do one next year’.
Taste wise, Top is what I like more than anyone else in BB.
His two Solo’s on the GD&TOP album were better than anything Jiyong has ever written (to me).
I love Jiyong but a whole lot of his songs sound the same to me (so consequently a lot of BB’s recent music sounds the same to me because he has such a heavy hand in it) but on the GD&TOP album —- there was Top doing his own songs without Jiyong’s intervention and they were GENUINELY unique —- outside the sphere of Kpop, with better composition and flow than Jiyong’s songs but everyone was still ‘oh jiyong is a MUSICAL GENIUS!!!’
And I’m always a bit like ‘ugh ok,’ hoping against all hope that one day, Top will deign to make an album and you know … do his job …. so people can appreciate the fucking musical genius i am sure lurks beneath his …. whatever it is exterior.
