The album consists of 10 songs and was written, composed, arranged and produced by 2PM's main vocalist Jun.K, according to the media outlet Manila Bulletin. Soon after "Go Crazy!" was released, 2PM immediately topped major music charts in Korea, including Mnet, Olleh, Soribada and Melon.

Just as the members of 2PM are going "crazy" together with the success of their album new album, the boys recently revealed that they would like to enter the army for mandatory military service together as well.
"If we entered the army in a zigzag way, it would take us six years to be complete as a group again. Truthfully, we don't have a lot of members in our group. Whenever we do events and one or two members weren't able to attend, it makes a really big difference too. We can probably do unit promotions too, but it's still not 2PM," said Jun.K in an interview with Joy News.
Member Woohyung added, "I also want to enter (the army) together with the other members. If the elder members entered the army and we younger ones are left, I think it would be lonely."
