YesAsia Editorial Description

Released in 2003, Jay Chou's fourth album Ye Hui Mei sees the superstar singer-songwriter taking his signature style to a new level of maturity. After the smash success of Fantasy and Eight Dimensions, Jay had already solidified his status as the new generation's greatest Chinese pop icon, and he delivers with characteristic flair for his fourth album. Named after his mother, Ye Hui Mei sees Jay Chou going Godfather with the atmosphere-laden "In The Name of the Father" (Track 1), complete with a big-budget, movie-style music video shot in Rome.

Though East-meets-West fusion numbers are now a dime a dozen in Mandarin pop, it was Jay who set off the trend and no one can do them quite like him, from ballad "East Wind Break" (Track 5) to the fast-paced "Double Blade" (Track 11). Jay is also known for his unique arrangements, like the ping-pong effects of "Third Year, Class Two" (Track 4), and distinctive lyrics, like that of his self-penned "Terrace" (Track 10) which even takes a dig at lyricist Vincent Fang for being a slow writer. Rounding out with touching karaoke ballads like "Clear Day" (Track 4) and "She Can Hear It" (Track 6), Ye Hui Mei is another perfect offering from the inimitable Jay Chou.

This version comes with a VCD containing the music videos for "In the Name of the Father" and "Double Blade", as well as documentary footage.

Professional Review of "Ye Hui Mei (Regular Version) (CD+VCD)"

July 31, 2003

New Depth Shown: "YE HUI MEI" (CD+VCD) ~ Jay Chou

While David Beckham was the hot player in the soccer transfer market, Jay Chou is the truly white-hot singer in the record transfer market!

As soon as the sensational Lord of the Chinese Music arrived at the Sony empire, Jay landed his annual Mandarin album "YE HUI MEI," with 11 unforgettable new tunes. Jay's unique style for which he is most adored for by his fans, is still manifest on this release. Jay's consistent improvement contributes to the new depth shown on some of the marvelous tunes. The present reviewer strongly believes that music fans are going to love "YE HUI MEI."

The writer of "To the Name of the Father" (Track#1) dramatically and lively describes how a father is filled with frustration, anger, regret and discontent while teaching his kids, the lyrics put the fans in a perfect position to personally experience the feeling deep down a father's heart. Also, the composer of the song has added a bit of opera- or musical-flavour to make it a natural fit with the album theme.

However, the recent TV commercial hit song "You Heard" (Track#6) is just another ordinary pop song. The story described by the lyrics of "You Heard" is indeed softly fragrant, but not distinguished at all. The melody of the song is moving and persuasive, though not unusual indeed. "Overhanging Cliff of Love" (Track#9) is accompanied by various stringed instruments. The feeling of sadness fills up the amazingly passionate and successful performance by the superstar. Unfortunately, limited subject matters have prevented the once-pleasing song writer Vivian Tsu from advancing further.

"Class 3B" (Track#4) reflects the voices of the teenagers' hearts. It genuinely describes their doubts and reminds listeners of their good old days. The use of lyrics by Fang Wen Shan on "East Wind Breaks" (Track#5) is not only elegant, but also poetic.

"Terraced Fields" (Track#10) is composed as an exotic mixture of minority tribal music, Chinese music and western music. The song sighs that while time flies, the people and things that used to be there are no longer there anymore. Naughty Jay also makes fun of Fang Wen Shan, the song writer, on the fact that Fang takes up much time to write, in the beginning lines of it.

"Dual Knives" (Track#11), which is like Jay's previous masterpieces such as "Shuang Jie Gun" and "Dragon Boxing", is his kung-fu trademark song. Although Jay's obsession about Bruce Lee has motivated him to produce a series of kung-fu-themed songs, the present reviewer must sadly admit that the series is not appealing to fans at all.

As for the other pieces, "Sunny" (Track#3), which is a love song, "Good Old Days" (Track#7), which describes people feeling like old friends at the first meeting and "Coward" (Track#2) are so good that music lovers should not miss them.

Recommendations: "In the Name of the Father" (Track#1), "You Heard" (Track#6), "East Wind Breaks" (Track#5), "Class 3B" (Track#4)

Great lyrics, needs to pronunciate more Customer Review Rated Bad 7 - 7 out of 10
Honestly, I love Jay Chou's music and his piano skill is very impressive. But often he mumbles or does not pronunciate the words correctly. If I didn't have the lyrics in front of me I would not understand SOME of what he was singing. Overall, his lyrics, beats, and singing is very good and I enjoy his music a lot. His concerts are always very entertaining as well! So I will still give this album a 7.

if you are looking for a really good cd or just a reaaly good jay chou cd, look no further here it is. this is not only the best cd jay chou has ever made but the best cd i have heard in my life. no matter what style of music he dose he sound excellent in all styles. not like most singers they just sound good doin 1 style of music. this cd has r&b, hip hop, rock, pop, singing &rapping. what else could you ask for. i personlly think track 5,6&9 are the best because 5&6 has really good R&B beats in it and 9 is a really good rock pop ballod and the rest of the other songs are really excellent too.there is not a single bad song on this cd at all. so over all i really do recomend this cd to everyone not just jay chou fans !!!!!
