This album is Niel's second solo album he definitely matured in this one. From te title track to the other songs in the album, everything sounded flawless.

"On My Way" is the intro song of the album. The beat is nice and Niel's voice is nice too. The second song is his title track "Love Affair." "Love Affair" is a really good song as it showed off Niel's vocals and it is different from most of Teen Top tracks.

Meanwhile, "Heart Monster" Is an unexpected acoustic song. It is nice to hear Niel sing a song with just acoustic guitar for background. His voice is so raw and I love the crispiness in it. I can feel the sadness of his voice in this song.

"Fever" is another great track from the album. From the piano in the beginning to the chorus of the song until the bridge and last part, everything was really good. The song is nicely arranged. It is the type of song that will be stuck in your head and you'll hum without you owing it.

"Signal" is the only ballad in the song it is not entirely a ballad as it still has RnB influences to it that made the song standout and really catchy. It is also very emotional and Niel's voice matches it perfectly.

Another great track from the album is "In The Rain". The beat and the melody of the song is really good. It has an old school RnB feel to it and the instruments are really heard. Niel's voice made the song better.

The last song is a slow RnB track. It can be identified as a dance track but also a slow song. These types of songs totally suits Niel's voice.

 I feel like the album is going for a scorned concept and they totally nailed it. I am giving this album 4.5 out of 5. It is one of the greatest kpop albums for January 2017. I am hoping Teen Top's comeback will be the same.

Listen to it yourself.
