Lee Hom’s New Album: Heartbeat (心跳)
Posted December 30, 2008on:
Have you heard his new album? I’m not too fond of most of his songs but they usually take a while to grow on me. I am not at all impressed by the second track, Heartbeat, which the album is titled after. Since this is the promotional song for this album, it lacks originality and prowess. At first hearing, it sounds like just another love song. Something to be found in an episode of Taiwanese drama.
However, his voice sounds amazing as usual and he looks even more attractive than before in what has been released of his music video. I just wish he would let others, professionals, edit his lyrics and critic his original compositions. Chinese isn’t his strongest suit and his lyrics are so… unexceptional, uninspiring.
My favorite song as of right now is Track 9: 可敬的对手, loosely translated (by me) to Respectful Competition. The beat and music are very much the style of Wang Lee Hom. I just tried to find it on Youtube but they don’t have it! Yet. But here it is on Todou!
