The first time I came across the sound of Faye Wong was around the mid-90s, which was just about the time that her career started to become very stable.
As for the songs featured on this classic selection, they display Faye's fine sense for rhythm and music in general and are a worthwhile retrospective of the songstress' work, which is strongly marked by her unique vocals. Many of Faye's signature songs present focused performances with her voice rising and sinking as well as drawling and pausing in irregular intervals harmonizing with the flow of her songs' lyrics and melodies.
Below are some of the tracks that Faye and non-Faye fans may want to check out on this release that mainly features Mandarin songs. Some very noteworthy compositions were contributed by Huang Shu Jun through the melodic ballads "Angel" (Track 5) and "Unchanged" (Track 11). Also the lyricist of these 2 songs, he gave Faye ample opportunity to display her crystal-clear voice. Obviously full of romantic and melodramatic diction (e.g., "Love you day and night endlessly, in a honey sweet way", "You once were my heaven"), Huang's works are also rich in rhythm, sometimes altering the pace or tone to reflect different moods. As for Faye's trademark ballad "Willing For You" (Track 2), its mellow sound throughout is matched by the singer's affectionate voice. Last but not least, "Keep Straying without Regret" (Track 3) and "Careless and Reckless" (Track 9) both bear the typical wayward touch of Faye, especially the latter, which she embellishes with abstract vocal instrumentation.
It's been several years since Faye's final album To Love hit the music shelves, but the capricious artist, who may have withdrawn from the music world for good, has left behind some memorable works.
Customer Review of "The Selection of Faye Wong - Faye For Sale (XRCD)"

|I always cherish the chance of getting hold of classic songs in all there full remastered glory, I think this new xrcd format does definitely improve the clarity and separation of the different instruments and vocals used, and although it is very expensive compared to normal cds, I am very satisfied with having the definitive copy of these excellent songs sung by a truly talented singer. This compilation contains the Latin version of Comet, which I think is far better mix then the original version first released in the Di Dar album. This compilation album is a true classic that all audio enthusiasts and Faye fanatics should get!!!|
