This was released online in two parts, tracks 1-5 are Part 1, tracks 6-12 are Part 2, and tracks 13 and 14 are only available on the physical album. There are many collaborations on this album, very interesting to hear. I really really liked tracks 3, 5, 8, 11 and 13. I enjoyed a majority of the songs.
And, to those of you interested in packaging, it really isn't spectacular. It's very thin, feels fragile like a jewel case and the photobook, if you can call it that, is thin. Sorry for being focused on packaging but the cost versus what I received doesn't match, in my opinion. If it weren't for the fact that the online release was incomplete, I would not have purchased the physical copy. Although I did not buy from amazon, there really is minimal difference in price compared to what I paid.
So, if you want all the tracks from GD's 2nd album there is no other choice than to by the physical album. If you don't care too much for the last two tracks than I would suggest just getting the download.
P.S. I'd say $21 or less is a good buy
The packaging on the other hand is a huge let-down. It's basically a standard American album case. The photo-book is barely a slight notch above a standard American album photo-book.
All in all if you care about what really matters, the music, then this is a definite must have album.
My only disappointment is that there are only 14 tracks. I wish there were more.
That being said, I'm going to try to convey how I personally like this album and hopefully convince people who are on the fence or buying for a friend and have no idea of what this album contains.
The packaging is really simple, for both the red and black version (I received the red version). Artsy, themed and simple. Something that a fan would appreciate and something not too weird for causal fans to be overwhelmed with.
The album itself is fun to listen to, but this is coming from a G-Dragon fan. However, if you are looking into buying this album, you or whom you are buying this for is also probably a fan. I can't really name past G-Dragon works to compare this to because his style is always changing. There are some running similarities in his music, but the album as a whole is quite different from say his older album "Heartbreaker". So don't don't make a judgement based off older work.
If I have to describe this album, it would be "steady" and "mature". Sure there are different genres and a little something for everyone to appreciate, but I found that a lot of the songs in this album are more laid back in comparison to his older works. Nothing really as fast and experimental sounding like "One of a Kind".
Overall.. uh good music? In the end, buying the album is a sign of support to the artist when in this day and age you could just download everything.

This is the first Korean import I have ever ordered and I was impressed by the thicker case and the photobook. They are a lot nicer than most inserts in American CDs. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Michelle W.
Packaging-wise, this album is very simple. It is much different than the usual work that is put into the presentation of BIGBANG/GD/YG/ETC's albums. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Ellen
I LOVE this album and I'm so glad I bought it! However, when I got it in the mail, the case was chipped and broken. Now I can't even open the case without it coming apart. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Taylor
