    January 20, 2006 Excellent. A work of art. Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
    There are many asian artists who need to start following Leehom's example. This talented Chinese American writes his own songs, doesn't tolerate covers (applying Chinese lyrics to American songs) and has his own distinct style. I am extremely impressed by Leehom, not only by his voice, but by his talent overall as a TRUE artist. This is a must buy (and I don't say that for every artist I listen to!).

    January 20, 2006 A bit disappointed... Customer Review Rated Bad 5 - 5 out of 10
    It's funny how every single time I read reviews for S.H.E.'s albums there are fans going on and on about how wonderful it was. Well, I'm a huge S.H.E. fan too (probably one of the biggest :D) but let's face the facts here: They are losing their touch. After Encore, it seems like they are going downhill, particularly with this recent release. In comparison to Encore, where each of the girls appeared to have a great increase in their singing abilities, Once Upon a Time portrays S.H.E. in an extremely weak position. The first song, "I don't want to grow up," is completely a mix/variation of a piece by Mozart. Where is the originality in that? The second track sounds like a cover off Backstreet Boys, and the third, while catchy, also sounds like a cover, with similar beats to American R&B. And the quality of the girl's voices? I really don't want to elaborate, but it was horrible. I honestly and sincerely hope that S.H.E. will pick themselves up out of this rut they have dug themselves into and release a better album in the near future.

    January 20, 2006 Not bad, not bad Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    The first time I heard Cyndi, I was immediately annoyed by the superficiality of her voice. However, hearing of her popularity in Taiwan, I decided to give her a second try and found myself very satisfied with the catchy beats in this album. Though her voice is still a bit whiney, it was tuned down a notch and is now tolerable and even quite enjoyable. I don't appreciate how she has that dazed "I'm stupid cute" expression on her face in her photo shoot, but that's another story. Overall, a good buy if you're into catchy beats and a pleasant (but not Christina Aguilera talented) voice to listen to.

    January 3, 2006 Definitely Not Bad Customer Review Rated Bad 7 - 7 out of 10
    eVonne does her fellow ABC's (American Born Chinese) proud with this excellent best collection album. While the first track on the first CD, "The Chosen One" is a bit long and repetitive, the second CD, which contains her best hits, is excellent and really gives you an idea of how talented eVonne really is. In comparison to other Asian artists in fact, I would have to say that eVonne really blows others out of the water; one can really hear the passion that this artist has got in her voice that few other artists have. If you don't believe me...why not check this album out for yourself?
