[Review] Girls’ Generation ‘Mr.Mr.’ Fourth Korean Mini Album
This review is solely my opinion, written based on my own taste and preferences. I am not a professional music critic, I can be very harsh and biased, please don’t take my reviews too seriously, the most important opinion is your own.

With the Divine Nine having just dropped 'Love & Peace' in Japan late last year, and then turn around in short notice to make their Korean comeback, history seem to have repeated itself as they did in late 2012 with 'Girls & Peace' and then early 2013 with 'I Got A Boy'. Only this time, 'Mr.Mr.' is a mini album, to the dismay of some who hoped for a full length album. SM teased the comeback at Girls’ Generation’s Marchen Fantasy concert, amping up anticipating far too early, and then managed to have the comeback marred by a series of operational mistakes surrounding the album and MV release. No one cares to hear again about these unacceptably baffling blunders, it was definitely not SM’s shining moment, and an agonizing couple of weeks fans would rather forget. But alas, the album was dropped on schedule, by accident and not by design I might add. SONEs around the world breathed a collective sigh of relief, as it was time to finally just enjoy the comeback before the ninesome embark on another Japan tour just like last year.
Over the past couple years, my a love-hate relationship with GG’s releases has only been steadily growing. The inconsistency in the direction and style of their music has been confidence-sapping, as every release led to more questions than answers. Although there was never a lack of intrigue that leave us with just enough to ponder about the silver lining. We shall find out with 'Mr.Mr'.
