Though the hype surrounding the comeback was sky high, netizens have been sending negative reviews ever since the release of the albums. This has led to speculation that the band is on its ways to extinction. This is despite the team's effort of promoting the album with a string of comeback performances. The two tracks are a part of their New Year release Angel's Knock—"Excuse Me" is a retro-style dance track with intense beats while "Bing Bing" is a jazz-influenced dance-pop number. Unfortunately, AOA's last hit was "Heart Attack" in 2015.
