  • SUPER FLY (Japan Version)
    Super funky
    February 23, 2017 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    EXILE THE SECOND made a strong return last year with a trilogy of singles and the launch of a nationwide arena tour, and it looks like the group is carrying forth the EXILE TRIBE dance music mantle this year as well with the consecutive releases of the single Super Fly and album Born to be Wild. THE SECOND delivers a super infectious and upbeat dance jam in Super Fly. Written and co-composed by Shokichi, the exuberant song has you nodding along in no time with addictive beats and cheeky lyrics in the opening rap verse, but the real fun is in the playful funk arrangement, the brass-underlined bridge and the catchy dance-out chorus. In comparison to their forcefully cool urban EDM tracks,... [read more]
  • Loveaholic Vol.1
    A new approach to an old theme
    February 22, 2017 Picked By Pisces See all this editor's picks
    C AllStar came to prominence with the romantic and touching ballad "Love Stairs," but the quartet is better known for their socially relevant music style. Before going on hiatus, they launch an unexpected love-themed album for their farewell project Loveaholic featuring five different love stories. In the 90s, many Cantopop songs were covers of Japanese music. Featuring a classical and electric guitar duet, the retro R&B number "Moment of Love" (Track 1) recalls those golden days of Cantopop music. Apart from the melody, the old-school J-pop vibe is also reflected in the brief interlude on piano and saxophone, a common style of music arrangement in the 90s. The romantic mood is well...

  • Zion.T - OO
    A jazzy lO-Ok at Zion.T's world
    February 16, 2017 Picked By Pisces See all this editor's picks
    From the eccentric and wild Babay to the retro Miss Kim to the moving "Yanghwa Bridge," Zion.T's quirky and offbeat R&B vibe varies from theme to theme. One thing that doesn't change is his simplistic style and addictive rhythms. Since joining YG Entertainment's sub-label The Black Label last year, he has turned to hip-hop and even became a judge on the popular rap competition Show Me the Money 5. Despite concerns that he would go mainstream after signing with his new agency, the singer-songwriter eases the worries by displaying his creative independence in the album OO, a refreshing jazz/hip-hop fusion about his unique worldview. Kicking off with a film rolling sound, the lead-off track... [read more]
  • Ten Years (2015) (Blu-ray) (Hong Kong Version)
    Predicting the worst, hoping for the best
    February 10, 2017 Picked By Pisces See all this editor's picks
    As conflicts between Hong Kong and Mainland China intensify, voices calling for Hong Kong autonomy have escalated in the city. Five young directors envisage the dystopian future of a Beijing-controlled Hong Kong ten years later in the indie omnibus Ten Years, which addresses different social concerns including national security legislation, cultural preservation, marginalization of Cantonese and sovereignty. Directed by Kwok Zune, "Extra" unveils the dark secret behind the legislation of a National Security Law from the perspectives of two unimportant gangsters – an Indian (Peter Chan) and a Mainland immigrant (Courtney Wu Zerisawa) who are paid to launch a false attack to stoke panic and...

  • The Monkey King 2 (2016) (Blu-ray) (Hong Kong Version)
    White Bone Demon vs. Monkey King
    February 9, 2017 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    It's hard to keep track of all the blockbuster Journey to the West movies coming out lately. In 2016, we had The Monkey King 2 and A Chinese Odyssey Part 3, and the year before that Surprise and Monkey King: Hero is Back. This Chinese New Year, Stephen Chow's Journey to the West: The Demons Strike Back and Wang Baoqiang's Journey to the West-inspired Buddies in India opened the same day, while Derek Kwok's The Tales of Wukong will arrive this summer, possibly launching another movie franchise. With so many Monkey Kings flying around, the installment that I'll be measuring newer adaptations against is last year's The Monkey King 2. The first film of Soi Cheang's series, 2014's The Monkey...

  • miss A: Suzy Mini Album Vol. 1 - Yes? No?
    An artistic portrayal of love
    January 26, 2017 Picked By Pisces See all this editor's picks
    Since her touching performance of "Winter Child" in the hit drama Dream High, Suzy has been known for her warm vocals which are rarely shown in miss A's songs. Last year, the singer-actress deviated from her group's chic style and ventured into jazz through the successful duet Dream with EXO's Baek Hyun. Making her solo debut, Suzy strays away from the mainstream even further with her first mini-album Yes? No?, an atmospheric release delving into the inner world of a young woman struggling with love. The title track Yes No Maybe (Track 2) is the only dance number in this ballad-driven album, but it still goes well with the album's hazy theme. The upbeat Britpop song is full of strong...
