TWICEcoaster: Lane 1 was released in 2 version an Apricot version and a Neon Magenta version, which represent Twice's official colours, which they announced on September 23rd 2016. Both versions come with a clear slipcase and both versions have completely different photo booklets, the only thing the same with both versions is the track list. Each version comes with 2 postcard prints as well as 2 randomly selected photo cards, with 1 of the cards being a special card. Both versions are set out in the same hardback book style case with the Cd on the inside of the front cover. The colour concept is seen throughout each version with a pastel purple also making an appearance to match some of their outfits.

I have the Apricot version of the album and I love the whole set out and colour scheme it's really pretty. I love that the slipcase has roller coaster tracks on it to give the effect of them riding on a roller coaster. The members really stand out in the pictures even though they are only wearing pastel coloured outfits, I like that they also kept it cute and fun with them posing with woollen candy floss/cotton candy. I love that Twice's albums always seem to come with a special photo card, and it's always placed in a protective slip. I bought the first press limited edition so I also got a set of photo cards which seemed to go to everyone that pre-ordered the mini album. I got Mina on my Cd and I got Tzuyu for both my normal photo card and also for the special card. I'm glad they got Sana to go back to dark hair as I think she's so much prettier with darker hair, I also love that they always seem to experiment with Momo's hair and keep Jeongyeon's hair short as I prefer her with a pixie cut. This is my favourite album from them so far, I really love each track especially One In A Million, it's such a beautiful song and their vocals really shine on it, TT is also my favourite title track so far. This is the 1st album from them that I've enjoyed from the first listen, so lets hope that means the next one is even better and has me grinning from ear to ear. Check out TWICEcoaster: Lane 1's amazing tracks below.

Twice have just made their comeback with their new mini album Signal and they're up against my main boys VIXX, people may think I'm being biased when I say that I think VIXX's comeback single is the better of the 2 with them being 1 of my favourite groups but as you can see, I'm a fan of Twice and have yet to be really disappointed with a title track from them which on first listen I wasn't and am not a big fan of it but it could be a grower, I'm sure I'll buy the mini album anyway because you can't base 1 song on the whole album, personally for me though as a whole on visually and musically VIXX had me from the start of their title track, so good luck to both VIXX and Starlight's as well as Twice and Once's, I'm sure it will be a successful return from both groups.
