AFTER THE LIGHTS (Japan Version)May 13, 2006 GREAT!!!!
besides adagio, this is sweetbox's best! Great songs that are so emotional (pop of corse). After the Lights is an amazing masterpeice. its mixed with such talent. Killing me DJ is also great. too bad this is no longer in print but you can buy sweetbox's x-mas album because it has the same tracks
May 13, 2006 AMAZING
Im not a big pop fan. I like edgy music that is ambitious. Adagio is that. It mixes Hip-Hop with Pop and Classical and Rock and Exotic sounds from all over the world (think namie amuro's want me want me beat.) Jades newest cd Addicted isnt even as edgy. This is by far sweetbox' best CD ever. It gets mixed reveiws from fans because its the one cd that is so different from all the others. While the others are just pop, this one is many things. I would say if you only can buy one cd ever: make it this one.
Classified (Japan Version)May 13, 2006 Good album but I can tell its a debut
This is SOOOO POP. it reminds me of when jessica simpson and britney spears came out. they both had such pop shild music that it was shocking when they became more sexy and adult. Cinderella is a bad song. For The Lonely is a very heartfelt song that reaches out to depressed people all over the world. Its a classic. although this is by far the worst sweetbox album that jade has done, its still a very good album considering its a debut.
May 13, 2006 GREAT!!!!
this cd is full of life. The songs are GREAT! This is Jades 2nd cd (addicted has just come out when i wrote this reveiw), but this cd still has my fav sweetbox song ever: UNFORGIVEN. Dont push me and human sacrafise are SO GREAT and are hip hop-ish while on the radio is a great pop song. She writes really infectious hooks.

I liked this album alot. its good. although not as good as after the lights or adagio, its still very good. Kinda 80-ish new wave...unlike adagio which was hip-pop/classical/rock.
La Belle (miin)
La Belle (miin) DVD Region AllOur Price: US$19.99List: US$25.99Save: US$6.00 (23%)May 13, 2006 Emotional but Incoherent
This film is about a man that is hoplessly in love with a woman but she is hoplessly in love with another man. The other man is a jerk and treats her like crap while the main character treats her like gold. She plays with his heart and there is a shakespearian ending. Sounds good right? wrong...although the movie is moving, a times its hard ot understand. Actions and conversations seem very random, as if they were just script fillers. The movie is short and moves at a snails pace. Its not bad but I doubt it will win best picture any time soon.

May 2, 2006 Queen of Live Shows
Namie is a true queen. She has so much energy and hardly ever hits a bad note even when dancing while singing but you can tell that she is truly singing for real. she dances the whole time and does a great job. I loved it. i cant wait for her next live show.

April 28, 2006 SO-SO Pop CD
Im not sure if the reason i dont feel this is upbeat and hip hop-ish is because i listen to alot of hip hop but trust me, this CD isnt that upbeat. The songs are mild pop. Jills voice is kinda weird. The raping is TERRIBLE and silly. For some reason, it seems that alot of chinese people think this CD is upbeat and hard core hip hop...ITS NOT...This is pop. I listen to alot of hip hop and this isnt hip hop. its not even dance pop...its like sweet cheesy pop thats so common. Im not sure why, but ive never heared a edgy chinese song...they are all simple and dont have hooks. Its like in china they dont like to hear heavy beats. I guess China is a balled country. Oh well...
The Eye 2 (DTS Version) (Alternate Endings Version)
The Eye 2 (DTS Version) (Alternate Endings Version) DVD Region All(14)Our Price: US$10.99April 20, 2006 The Eye 2
This was a good horror movie. It was much better than the first. The first movie was slow paced and boring. The shocking moment of the first movie was silly and i was able to perdict it. In this movie i dont think the plot was the best horror plot ive ever seen but it was interesting. Shu Qi was a great choice in this movie. Unlike the actress in the first movie, Shu Qi was not so wooden. I was shocked that the actress in the first won a award because it made melaugh how fake her crying was in the first eye. But i did feel Shu Qi's characters pain in this movie and that is the entire reason im giving this movie a 5 star: because of character development. also this movie is much more scary than the first. In the first 'eye' i was not scared one time. It was all perdictable scares. In this movie i actually got scared because there were times that what i thought was oging to happen didnt happen, something else happened instead and that added a fun factor to this movie. I would say that although not the best horror movie, this one is much better than the first.

April 17, 2006 Not That Great...
Ayu is not that great in my opinion...for one thing, her voice is like a chipmunk that has swallowed way too much helium. she sounds like a little kid. Also these songs try to be emotional but they seem so robotic. The songs like Carol seem like J-Horror Trailer songs. they come a dime a million. ANd her rock songs are silly and bland. She is a very pretty girl, but not a music talent in my opinion. Also, this CD is filled with boring songs that try to sheild her voice with loud background music. (this is something janet jackson also does just instead of using rock music, janet uses hip hop beats...) i think that this is not a very well done album. Im not saying that i hate her...im saying that i think she should have just been a model or actress (ive never seen her act so i cant say if she is good lol), but not a singer. There are 3 so-so songs on this cd...About You, Hope or Pain, and Moments, and even those 3 songs get old very fast. In all this story is just a bland waste of 1 1/2 hours....
JU-ON The Grudge (Hong Kong Version)April 16, 2006 SNOOORRRRREEE.......
This movie was so boring...i dont see why they made a english version of this movie. its way too slow and confusing. The ending made no sense and there was no "O MY GOD!" moment... in all i would not want to see it again...there are a few nifty moments but in all i would pass on this and watch One Missed Call...

April 16, 2006 GREAT MOVIE
I have issues...I dont get scared often...the slower the horror, the less i get scared and the faster i get bored. (ei- Ju-On put me to sleep). This movie is a slow moving horror. But it scared me. WHy you ask? i have one theory: I made a connection with the characters...in Ju-On, i didnt care if the main character died...in Ringu i didnt care...in Dark Water i didnt care...in almost every horror movie ive ever seen i didnt care if the people died. But in this movie i did care. I felt like i wanted to save the characters from the ghost girl. I think that this is one of the best horrors ive ever seen.
Lexy - LexuryApril 16, 2006 GREAT!
Every artist has to have a first album...most fall short and pick up on their 2nd or 3rd tries or maybe even never...but not Lexy. She sets a new standard for debut albums with this collection of Hip-Hop and Pop songs. She has a very unique voice and rapping style. she also is able to go from hard rapper chick to soft and sweet lady very easy. I would say that this is a must get CD and Lexy is sure to become a HUGE STAR! (now if only others would fallow in her footsteps)
Lexy Vol. 2 - Lexy in AfricaApril 16, 2006 Lexy Rules
This CD is GREAT! I love it. Its a mix of Hip-Pop and Rap. She has a unique voice and music style. I love the african beats on her first single. if African beats are not your thing, she also has more electronic sounding songs and some slower songs mixed in. This CD is one of my ALL TIME favs! It is a must get!
Bin Vol. 1 - In My FantasyApril 16, 2006 A good CD
Ok so i only like 4 songs on this CD...but they are 4 really good songs. 2AM, Club, See You Latea, and Back in my Mind (which sounds ALOT like Hyolee's Anyclub). They are all up-beat party hip-pop songs. They rest of the CD is a bit slow and hookless. But Bin can be a huge star if her 2nd album is better than this first try. Not a bad job.
Lee Hyo Lee vol. 1 - StylishApril 16, 2006 Just ok
This CD isnt bad..i guess...her voice is very weak. this CD has too many slow songs and mid-tempo mixes. Hey Girl is a good slightly up-beat party song. and Do Me and 10 minutes are good songs. The rest are just so-so. Not bad for a first try but Hyolee has had years of practice being in Fin.K.L so she should know better. You can pick it up if you want but i would just say stay away
Call me Miss... (Normal Edition)(Japan Version)April 16, 2006 Just ok...
I love CK but this album is not that great. Kirakuni is the only good song. Hip-Pop songs like baby girl are just not up to par with Namie Amuro. And more popish songs such as I Know are just too bland. She needs to go back to her Crystal Style or ever 4REAL days when she was ok with expiramenting with emotional ballads and funk. She even recycles Motherland on Fly To You. I know that Motherland was her biggest hit but she needs to move on already. I just hope that her next CD will be better and not so dull...But I am still a fan of her.
NAKED (Normal Edition)(Japan Version)April 15, 2006 Good Job
Soulhead makes great music. This CD is just as good as Braided and better than Oh My Sister... it is basically up tempo R&B. They make smooth music. its not boring and doesnt suffer from to many balleds. i would pick it up if you are a Soulhead fan...
Japana-rhythm (Japan Version)April 15, 2006 Not Bad
I love Bennie K...and i still do after this new CD. it is basically a reissue of alot of their music put together into one collection. There is a nifty remix of puppy love on here as well as a few new tracks. They CD suffers from boring interludes. Not bad but I hope the next Bennie K CD is better.

April 15, 2006 What a Waste...
I thought i was going to get music on this collection. For one thing, this collection DOES NOT come with a first disk. It only has dvds on in it so there is no musuc. Also the DVDs have no subtitles. Only Korean speakers can understand what they are saying. Its just some book and a boring doc about their lives. Don't waste money on this if you are looking for their music. Its only a 2 disk collection...unlike what is said on this website there is NO 3rd disk. I am so angery that i bought this. I feel so duped and i feel like i just threw money out the window for something worthless.
