(G)I-DLE has made a comeback with another album release after being absent for more than a year. I Never Die contains eight original songs in total.
The song mixes rock elements with attitude-filled words. It isn’t fully cohesive but it is something one can dance to.

Never Stop Me
The track is another sass-filled one. The words switch between feeling hurt and taking a dig at the someone who hurt them.
Musically, it is a pop rock driven song.
The atmosphere of this song is perfect. It knows its audience well. In terms of sound, it is heavily filled with bass which adds to the darker feel of the song.
Lyrically, it uses many metaphors relating to the story-telling through a novel.
It is a break-up song and features the girls confidently telling the ex that their relationship is “already” over.
Minnie’s voice and Yuqi’s falsetto are definitely the highlights of the song.
A slow tempo, easy listening ballad. The words talk about remembering the previous days when things were different.
An uplifting song about not giving up. The members of the group reassure the listener that they’ll be right by their side.
The track has more of a rock edge, music-wise. It also has some Eastern influences.
It talks about drifting apart from someone because of changes. The song lacks a solid flow.
The song features all of the ladies rapping, and it is a surprising treat. Miyeon’s and Minnie’s sultry voices mix well with the attitude of the song. Soyeon’s and Shuhua’s cutesy bits also work well with the song. Yuqi’s lower register makes her sound fierce in her delivery.
The lyrics leave something to be desired, but it’s not meant to be a radio-friendly song.
Tomboy (CD Version)
Minnie and Yuqi drop the f-bomb each.
The CD is definitely not kid-friendly.
The album is filled with rock inspired tracks. That might not be for everyone, but it certainly is an interesting direction to take.
