Glad to know... Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I am the reviewer curious about the meaning of "For My Girl". Not so sure I enjoy knowing someone is laughing at me...I was honestly confused due to the lyrics. However, I have recently purchased an older CD by Kit and read the credits enough to know she thanks both God and her boyfriend, so my misunderstanding as to the meaning of the song was cleared up before it was pointed out here. I guess maybe the title and lyrics can be expected to be a little confusing when translated or come from another culture. I have some friends in France who still refer to their female friends as "girlfriends", yet have no homosexual intent whatsoever. In fact, most are married or in a hetersexual relationship that is solid. So, thank the previous reviewer for further clarification...but please don't laugh because others are confused. Especially when it involves intra-cultural music which can easily have mis-intrepretations. Kit is amazing and I am glad I bought "East Towards Saturn", because it got me loving her enough to buy her earlier works! She is a gem...and as I said before, I am sad to lose her when I have only now found her. But I wish her the best with her life and she has the blessings of many fans. I know she is going out while still on top! The best way to go. I remain a fan and will plays all these CDs a lot. She is just so talented!

Kit in her element Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I was prompted to write this review because of the comment left by the previous review. It made me laugh because the meaning behind the song "For My Girl" got misunderstood. That song simply was a song Kit wrote for her fans, one that encourages them to move on bravely in life even as the going gets tough. However, Kit said that this song is very much for the guys as well as the girls, haha! This album could possibly be the last Mandarin album Kit is doing, and having had it for the last eight months or so, I can only say that this album is really Kit in her element. It's Kit singing what she wants to sing and how she wants to sing, and finally, leaving to live the life she really wants to lead. Thank you Kit, for all the past years of great music!

Finding her only to lose her... Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
WOW. I just discovered Kit, and now she's ceasing her music career. What a shame to fans. Even new ones like me. I almost didn't buy this CD because I prefer to not have English on my Asian CDs (I live in the US...I get enough English music here). However, I did buy it and I am in love. Kit reminds me of a Chinese Natalie Merchant of the American band 10,000 Maniacs. Her sound is not mainstream, but folsky and passionate. She sings about real things and not just fluff songs to sell CDs. I adore her style of music, but must disagree that her English songs are her best. I think her English is not her best sound (and although her lyrics are at least grammatically correct...which is rare in Chinese music...the songs left me confused. Especially "For My Girl". Is it about her daughter...assuming she has one...or is it about her lover, in which cause is Kit a lesbian? What statement is this song making? Her other English songs are also vague, but "For My Girl" is really distressing because the lyrics are poignant, but I do not condone homosexuality if that is indeed what the song is about.) and she should stick to either Mandarin or Cantonese. However, this album stays in my CD player because I really do enjoy her style. If only Natalie could hear Kit...maybe they could team up. Very similiar. I highly reccommend this release. Since it is her last, it should be bought while available and is sure to be collectable soon!

I'll Miss You Kit Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
All these years, I've always supported her. She's one of the best singers just that she doesn't have the mainstream looks to make her the next big thing. She has a great voice and great songs... Goodbye kit... loving u always...

A "must-have"! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Got this album from a friend who just got back from Singapore - and I love it! Purchased 2 more copies of this album to give to my DJ-friends here in Europe. Especially check out track 5! Track 7 is also pretty cool!

do buy this album Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
i guess as i am writing this review, it pains my heart to think that kit is leaving us... or she left us already.. haiz... this being her last album.. i guess its kind of sentimental... to leave without any notice..
but i suppose the signals are clear enough. as such... there shdn;t be any dwelling..
i particularly like the first song and the 6th song. tihnk its kind of nice.. unable to give comments for the rest of the album.. becaus ei would like to keep them for future listening.. so that whenever i miss kit alot.. i would bring out this cd and play a " new " track.... so that she would be like having new songs again..
i guess this is the only way i can have her releasing new songs..
its sad..

do buy this album
