Latest Releases

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12.

1. Left Alan Right Lee 2004 - Alan Tam n Hacken Lee, CD+Cantonese.
Pot shot:
Nothing special about this album. Rendition was half-hearted by the 2 veterans. The choice of songs also didnt lift the album. For this mediocre effort, I give a C-.

2. Natural Shine - Shine, CD+ Cantonese
Pot shot:
Easy-listening. These guys seem to lost their direction. Somewhat lacklustre. Still need to work on their vocals. I give this album a C.

3. Inside Out - Sally Yeh, CD+Mandarin.
Pot shot:
No complains about Sally's vocals and delivery. The new songs didnt really stand out and frankly, the over usage of synthesized music arrangement made the covers sound all the same. Nevertheless, it is a listenable album. Give it a C.

4. 04 Four Seasons - Edmond Leung, EP+ Cantonese
Pot shot:
A good follow-up to Number 10. If you like piano music, this might be very appealing. Like the conceptual theme of summarising HK major events in 2003. The guy can sing but he still doesnt stand out and sound a bit like Andy Hui at times. I give it a B.

5. Love n Dreams - Chilam, CD[Cantonese, Compilation + New Tracks]
Pot shot:
Nothing much to say about this. No surprises and easy-listening. For fans. I give it a C.

6. Remember, I love U - Vic Zhou, CD+ Mandarin
Pot shot:
This guy cant sing. His vocals are so weak and almost borders on sounding montonous. The choice of music is also a bore. For DIE-HARD fans.

7. Anita Classic Moment Live - Anita Mui, 2CDs [Mandarin, Compilation + New Tracks]

8. Magic - Twins, CD+ Cantonese
Pot shot:
Hoping for a good follow-up to Evolution then you are in for a disappointment. Music-wise, it is still exciting but it will take some time for the album to grow on you. Easy-listening tracks. They really need to work on their vocals. I give it a C+.

9. Cookies 4 Play - Theresa, Miki, Kary n Stephy, AVCD+ Cantonese
Pot shot:
Buy if you are a fan of them. I give it a D.

10. 2004 Grand Opening - Miriam Yeung, AVCD + Canto/Mando
Pot shot:
Easy-listening. It is because this album is using folks who helped to churn out the Twins' albums, Miriam's album is starting to sound a bit predictable. Didnt offer much musically but at least she can sing. Wished that she injects more emotion into her singing. She gets a C.

11. EO2004 - EO2, CD+ Canto/Mando

12. Eason n Sally Live Concert 903id Club - Eason n Sally, 2CDs + Canto/Mando, VCD/DVD
Pot shot:
Two competent singers. Power- packed and great rapport from Eason and Sally. A worthy buy. I give it a B.
