After first listen I am not that impressed, but I have never liked her music that much.
It is definitely better than last two albums which are a pure boredom for me, but the only album I actually love by her is The 5th Season.
I give this album a chance for sure (the only song that I can remember is 忘了 and it is a great song, actually), but somehow I don't expect much.

Anyone knows Xu WeiZhou? I've been looking for the MV "Walk Slowly" in HD, but the only one that I can find is the youtube one.

Yeah, the English title is "Head Over Heels".

I thought the self titled album was really good, but the ballads only. I am not a fan of her dance pop. Always struck me as trying a bit too hard to leave her mold.

You may like her new album then. Because there are not a lot of dance pop songs. But neither are there a lot of typical piano ballads. Actually, it is quite interesting album, I must say. I still need need to listen it for a few times, but my scepticism was misplaced in this case! :-)

I agree with you truehappiness. Her new album is so much better than her two last albums. My favourite tracks are Not afraid, No Regrets, Forgotten and Go.

Starring Jane is a best actually, not a studio album, it was a Taiwan only release. This best includes some of her biggest theme songs hits (TV & movies).

1. You Are My Sunshine (”何以笙簫默” My Sunshine movie theme song)
2. 轉眼一生轉身一世 A Lifetime In The Blink Of An Eye (”於無聲處” In The Silence drama OST)
3. 無字碑 Wordless Stone Tablet (”武媚娘傳奇” The Empress of China drama theme song)
4. 敢為天下先 Dare To Be The World's First (”武媚娘傳奇” The Empress of China drama OST)
5. 老地方 The Usual Place (”我的早更女友” Meet Miss Anxiety movie theme song)
6. 破曉以後 Gem of Love (”龍之谷:破曉奇兵” Dragon Nest: Warriors' Dawn movie theme song)
7. Be Here (”露水紅顏” For Love or Money movie theme song)
8. 終於等到你 Finally Waited for You (”咱們結婚吧” We Get Married drama theme song)
9. 陪你走到底 Accompany You Til The End (”我愛男閨密” Honey Bee Man drama theme song)
10. 這麼近那麼遠 So Far So Close (”80後” 80s movie theme song)
11. 真愛的味道 The Taste of True Love (”無價之寶” Treasure Hunt movie theme
song)
12. 木蘭星 Mulan (”花木蘭” Mulan movie theme song)


Jane's English album release has been postponed by the way (its first two singles are Dust My Shoulders Off & Battlefield).
In the first place it was supposed to be released in April... But all we got was a Dust My Shoulders Off remix produced by Steve Aoki in early July.
Actually Jane scrapped some tracks and has been recording others. She recorded a couple of weeks ago 3 tracks produced by will.i.am.
According to what she said in early July to billboard, she wants to make her album more upbeat:
Quote:
"Right now, I'm preparing more songs for my English album. I started about 2-3 years ago, and some arrangements aren't fresh anymore, so I'm trying to do something [newer] -- like the brand new stuff with Steve Aoki -- and I'm still looking for more collaborations with DJs, etc."
__________________________________________________ ___

Wilber Pan will release a new album on August 11th called "異類 illi". He wrote and composed almost all tracks! It's his first album under Warner Music.

I. Coming Home
II. 第三類接觸 Close Encounter
III. 硬鬧 Go Hard
IV. 致青春 Dear Memories
V. 啞巴 Numb
VI. 根本沒愛過 Never Loved
VII. 失眠 Insomnia
VIII. 鏘 Crank
IX. Fight For You
X. 稀罕沒理由 (feat. 吳昕) No Reasons (feat. Orfila)
Bonus Tracks:
XI. 第三類接觸 (寂寞版) Close Encounter (Lonely Version)
XII. 漫動作 (feat.關曉彤) Slow Motion (feat. Gabrielle Guan)

Title song Coming Home


第三類接觸 Close Encounter

Khalil Fong is already releasing a new album? Journey to the West was only released a year ago and it was DOUBLE album... this guy is working like crazy!

Coming Home by Will Pan is nothing special for me .. title track (Clown) from his previous album was much better. Moreover, Garden of Eden song and music video is like a masterpiece for me! So he simply cannot beat that with Coming Home

Cannot wait for new albums by Elva and Stefanie! It has been like forever since their last albums. And I was quite dissapointed with Elvaīs last work Shut Up And Kiss Me so I hope this album will be much better.

... and despite what Jolin said in the interview, I still somehow donīt believe she will be able to release an album by the end of this year. She is perfecionist and she still doesn t have lyrics for a lot of songs so I would expect a new album at the beginning of next year. But thatīs just my personal feeling
