AllMusic Review by

One of a Kind because few others would have the daring or money for his flashy wardrobe, but this nonstop party of an EP from South Korean pop-rapper G-Dragon suggests he deserves that swagger due to his talent as well. The Auto-Tuned title track is a bright, boastful number with a hooky chorus and plenty of exciting production tricks, while the kinetic "Crayon" bounces between electro and rave-rap, coming off as a top production that somehow escaped the house of Mad Decent while Diplo was sleeping. Parents should be warned that steamy pillow-talk number "That XX" is almost XXX with a couple naughty bits earning it an "over 19" rating back home, but G-Dragon takes his Gangnam style to Lady Gaga levels, so expect that "little monster" attitude and some envelope pushing.
