YesAsia Editorial Description

Faye Wong is set to launch a spectacular musical attack this year!

The praised artist is not only scheduled to release her long awaited new major Mandarin album "To Love" but is also preparing for an extensive 8-gig HK tour during the festive Christmas period at the end of 2003!

The Gifted artist has been gathering material for this release for over two years and written a song the 1st time ever since she wrote the tune "Kid" for her daughter 2 years earlier! Get ready for songs of powerful impact and just wait till you hear how Faye uses the sound of her breath as living instrument! As for her main track, the star skillfully puts love right next to war expressing how love envelops pleasure & pain at the same time!

Faye's release also includes a Nicholas Tse tune called "MV"! Another thing that is quite special is that a lot of the songs names have been shortened to 2-character formations like "Rotating Wood" (Rotating Wooden Horse), "Beautiful Error" (The Errors of Beauty) or "Sunny Treasure" (Daylight Darling), which give the works even more meaning!

Looks as if Faye's fans can look forward to doubly blessed Christmas holidays!

This version comes with an exclusive VCD with the footage on the making of the MTV of the song "To Love"! True Faye lovers dare not miss this invaluable collector's gift!

Professional Review of "To Love (Limited Edition) (CD+VCD)"

April 30, 2004

This professional review refers to To Love ''All-In'' (DVD+CD) (Special Version)

A Worthy Wait: To Love (Limited Edition) ~ Faye Wong

With little fanfare and without much notice, Asian pop diva Faye Wong has inked the transfer from EMI to Sony Music and has been staying with that record label for over a year already. Singing the theme song for themovie "Hero" was the lone move she made last year. Recently, Faye has really come to light with the release of this brand new album "To Love" and with the start of her dearly awaited concert in Hong Kong finally at hand.

"To Love" has a great variety for one's choice, from Faye's trademark electronic music to emotion-venting ones; and is backed by a heavy-weight production crew which not only includes Faye's old partner Zhang Ya Dong, but also carries big names like the great song writer and composer Lin Xi and Chen Xiao Juan. "To Love" is an undeniably, exponentially better album than those published by EMI.

Generally speaking, fans have a right to drool. Most tunes on "To Love" are dropping jaws as Faye has kept up the good work. In particular, she has personally created four of the new songs to share her inner feelings during the last years with her beloved, patient fans. Although "To Love" is not as pretty and not as appealing as some of the best albums published during Faye's career high, it is well worth listening with your heart and soul.

The producer of the leading track " To Love " (Track#1), Zhang YaDong, has brought about masterful magic by combining electronic music and strings to build the oppressive feeling of war uprisings everywhere. The lyrics of " To Love " (Track#1) were written by Faye while its Cantonese version, "In the Name of Love" (Track#12), was taken care of by Lin Xi. As for the lyrics' quality, the Cantonese "In the Name of Love" (Track#12) by Lin is a notch better than the star ' s personally written Mandarin version regardless of whether its intensity, the chosen words or the comparisons used are concerned.

Yet, the Cantonese version of "Hua Shi Liao" (Track#13), is not as attractive as its Mandarin version "Passenger" (Track#5). "Passenger" (Track#5) is better in catching the song's original relaxing feeling and on top of that, Faye's unique laissez-faire-style of interpretation has made it even more charming.

The music of "Deserted Castle" (Track#2) was written by Chen Xiao Juan and is as nice as any of Faye's previous pieces. Accompanied by angelic piano play and instrumental music, it is a truly elegant emotion-venting master-piece. Though "Snow in April" (Track#8) has a mysteriously saddening melody that causes people to feel lost and whirling, itslyrics are well-aimed and encourage us to think positively. Other than those songs, "The Errors of Beauty" (Track#4) and "Don't Stay" (Track#3) also deserve the present reviewer's recommendation.

From a down to earth point of view though, there is still some room for "To Love" to achieve perfection. For example, "MV" (Track#11), written by Nicholas Tse, only gets a fair grading and Faye has paid excessive attention to the pronunciation of standard Cantonese so that it sounds odd and unnatural. Moreover, the titles of most songs on "To Love" have been abruptly, absurdly and abnormally truncated into two words, such as "The Errors of Beauty" (Track#4)to "Beautiful Error", which is "adding feet to a picture of a snake" i. e. superfluous.

Recommendations: "In the Name of Love" (Track#12), "Passenger" (Track#5), "Deserted Castle" (Track#2), "Snow in April" (Track#8), "Don't Stay" (Track#3)

Faye is at her peak Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
To Love is my favourite album of all time. It is simply a stunning piece of art! Faye has always been my favourite singer: she blends beautiful opera style vocals with avante-garde, rock, dance and even orchestral elements. Her musical repertoire, ever since her self- titled 'Faye Wong' (1997)have always been remarkable for their strong musical content even though her music is not always easy to understand. Her grwoth as an artist who always follows her own heart and not what the public dictates makes her one of the better (actually aside from David Tao and Wang Lee Hom) Chinese langauge perfomers in an industry riddled with mediocre performers. My favourite song in the album has to 'To Love'. When I first heard this song I was blown out of my mind. It reminded me of descending underground into hell. The beat and melody topped off with Faye's witch-like vocals makes this both a dark and powerful anthem of love and malice. The second song, 'Empty City', begins with a plaintive piano solo followed by Faye's voice sighing about loneliness and love in a place of desolation. It is a very beautiful song, full of sensitive melodies that will comfort you in times of loneliness. I think that 'Empty City' is one of Faye's most vulnerable songs. 'Leave Nothing' is another good track, once again Faye breaks groound in this song that blends traditional Chinese musical melodies with a modern trip hop beat. Her soprano voice blossoms into several flawless phases, making this a trully remarkable track. I also liked 'Passenger', a beautiful, sligthly sad song blending piano, trumpets and her experimental electronica in a song about love and time. 'Carousel' is abeautiful track, the guitar riffs are lovely and her small baby like vocals make you smile. 'Night Make up'is a powerful electronica anthem that begins with a ascending opening, reminding you of a sunset in some exotic location like Mercury. Her vocals are amazing in this song. No one can equal Faye in artistry. Overall I loved all the songs in the album. Faye Wong is Annie Lennox, Shena Ringo, Bjork and Maria Callas all rolled into one sphere. Faye is also herself. 'To Love' and "sing and Play' are my favourite albums of all time and Faye will always be number one.

Excellent Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
Being a newbie Faye Wong fan, I purchased the limited edition pack after researching and reading some good reviews of it. The album itself, To Love combines a variety of stylistically different songs. From electronica, to pop, dance, chillout. Ultimately, it's realising how melodic her voice is as well as having some fantastic production mixing. This album is very much a contemporary one, almost post-modern in it's execution. Stand out songs are the 1st, 3rd ,5th... Overall, the songs are the album are amazingly listenable and due to Wong's melodic dynamic harmonisation and the layering and layering of music and sound effects; You'll find that you'll be returning again and again for more. Great work

Faye's masterpiece Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
This is, undoubtedly, Faye's finest moment. They've perfected the sound they were working since "Fable" but there's so much more variety here to please every one of Faye's devoted fan and every lover of good, atmospheric music . The orchestrations are wonderfully varied - there's techno, ambient, 60's orchestral style, classical and many more surprises ( like the Spanish flavour of track 10 which works exceptionally well. No weak composisitons here, and, needless to say, Faye's voice is as exquisite as ever.
The videos included in the package suit the songs well. They're not the best videos I've seen -- the Chinese are a bit behind their Western counterparts in this department - but they're colourful, interesting and you get to see an awful lot of the diva herself

Overall a package worthy of 4.5 stars but I give it 5 for making me write a review. Bravo, Faye !
