RM‘s explorative nature shines through on his second solo effort, Right Place, Wrong Person.

The 11-track album clocks in at an easy 35 minutes and arrives about a year and a half after the BTS star’s solo debut, Indigo. Right Place, Wrong Person takes a sharp turn from its predecessor in the best way possible and hears him vastly expand his sonic horizons. While the experimentation gets a tad overwhelming in between tracks like “Nuts” and “out of love,” the tracks’ pays an ideal homage to psychedelic, alternative and even old school hip-hop — the last of which is most evident in his cadence and tone. RM’s collaborations with Little Simz and Moses Sumney on “Domodachi” and “Around the world in a day” elevate the project with inspiration from progressive jazz and soul/R&B, and thoroughly proves that the 29-year-old artist is an exciting and flexible force to be reckoned with.

He even dives into the sphere of rock-rap on “Groin,” channeling the subgenre’s aggressive nature to share his own message for the unjust critics, as well the ethereal sounds of indie on “Heaven,” the fast-paced pop beat on “LOST!” and R&B on the subtle yet rich “Credit Roll.” RM closes out with the previously-released single “Come back to me,” a soft acoustic offering that stunningly explodes into an indie pop anthem of life’s cyclical nature. Right Place, Wrong Person proves to be an alluring sonic journey for the BTS leader, and could very well serve as a delightful introduction for those who are yet to know Kim Namjoon.
