(I work for EA Games atm so I don’t have a lot of time left for Kpop so I am always behind on albums and comebacks)
but I just listened to B.A.P’s “Noir” album.
I usually just get a handful of songs off Kpop albums because I am not interested in the rest, mostly because they’re too generic for my taste.
So I don’t have a favorite Kpop album.
Well, I didn’t use to.
Because “Noir” is by far the best Kpop album I have ever heard in all my years of navigating the ever changing waters of Korean Pop.
Maybe it’s my age, being old as balls, that perhaps demands more serious tunes in terms of musical competence/ musical sound I don’t know, but god damn it, this album hit me in the face, helped me up just to roundhouse kick me in the face again. I loved every single track.
I don’t know who was responsible for the sound overall but if it was mostly our boys then may all the gods bless them for this gem because it stinks of musical knowledge and numerous R’n’B, late 90′s/ early 2000′s hip hop, Blues and Jazz influences I don’t normally find in Kpop.
Strictly in its genre, “Noir” is my absolute favorite album so far.
did the basic colors for the gems (mostly, like 90% of them…) but i’m not thrilled with the blue gems, think i’ll go back in and do more contrast. Did the top of the sword, some edges, the scatter lasers and added the wraith transfer on the face there.
so I was rewatching su and I’m 90% sure Centipeetle was/is a Quartz warrior?
I mean every Quartz we’ve seen has had the wild, white hair
She (in her corrupted form) has gem armor similar to Jasper’s
There’s a few frames during her reforming animation that show her old humanoid form, and she’s about Quartz-sized. (edit: it only showed one regeneration, so it’s safe to assume she’s a very young gem like Peridot.)
Also I’m pretty sure her gem is a chrysoprase, which is a green quartz. (This is the closest picture to her gem.)
She’s the only corrupted gem so far who has showed any degree of higher intelligence, and she clearly loves Steven.
idk I hope she makes a reappearance in this season or the next. she could be his first gem fusion. he’s the first friend she’s had in thousands of years.
Rainbow Quartz and Eyeball make a singular cool gem from the 80′s-90′s. Her name is Amphibole Quartz and it’s the 2nd drawings of the TopazNuke! I hope you like it guys! and thanks you for all the messages for my birthday, i really love you!
