Professional Review of "Listen To Eason Chan (SACD)"

November 5, 2007

This professional review refers to Listen To Eason Chan (CD + Remix CD)
After trying out commercial rock-pop in his previous album What's Going On, Eason Chan proves himself to be one of the most versatile artists in Hong Kong yet again. Released in time for his concert, Listen to Eason Chan is almost entirely comprised of fast songs from various genres, ranging from dance to electronica to rock. With only one slow ballad, this may be Eason's most alienating Cantonese album yet. Regardless of the album's quality, it's nice to see someone listening to music fans' complaints about the lack of fast energetic music in Cantopop. However, I suspect many Eason fans may find this album too much of a good thing.

With no lyric booklet or album credits, various sources have suggested that Eason was completely in charge of the album, and he has certainly, as usual, assembled an impressive team to back him up. The biggest name of all is veteran songwriter Michael Lai who supplies the sole ballad on the album, "Crying in the Party" (Track 6), surely used as a way of promoting Lai's own recent concert. Eason admitted that he only included the ballad in the album because it was written by Lai. Lyricist Wyman Wong tries to fit the mismatched song into the album by making the lyrics involve the happenings in a party. The result is an affecting, but ultimately contrived ballad that works effectively as a breather between the energetic fast songs rather than an energy-killing party pooper.

Eason has attempted to do the type of fast dance songs that Sammi Cheng and Leon Lai excelled in before, but never has he used it as an album motif. Thanks to producers Davy Chan and C.Y. Kong, the dance songs are more fun than bombastic. The party starts off with "Mario Party" (Track 1), an energetic Latin-style dance track that is not unlike something George Lam might have sang in his heyday. The energy is elevated even further with second track "Tropical Island Serenade" (Track 2) written by Single. Produced by Zhang Yadong, "Tropical" is a breezy disco-style dance track that has an addictive hook like a good dance song should. It balances Eason's adaptable vocals and the high-spirited arrangement without letting one overpower the other.

Leaving fun behind and heading more into bombastic territory, "Concert Live Gig" (Track 4) takes Eason straight into the Cantopop "rave" genre that has already seen its heyday. The result is a high-powered audio workout that serves as an excellent theme song for his upcoming concert. But among the more serious dance tracks, "Waterloo Station" (Track 5) and "Chameleon" (Track 8) are the top picks, thanks to the superb arrangements by Steve Welton-Jaimes/Tony Swain and Carl Wong.

Much like Yumiko Cheng's excellent Yumiko Space album from 2005, Listen to Eason Chan is an album much more focused on production over vocals, proven by the addition of the second remix album. The exception to the rule is fan favorite "Wheel of the Era" (Track 9) from Yumiko Space co-producer Eric Kwok. A dark ballad disguised as a piano-driven mid-beat track, the melody allows Eason to give his versatile vocals a workout, which probably explains why traditional Eason fans would love it. However, the arrangement feels forced and clashes with the grandiose melody. Like "Crying in the Party", "Wheel of the Era" seems to belong on a different album.

I call Listen to Eason Chan Eason's most alienating Cantonese effort yet because it's essentially an album of side tracks. The most exciting part of past Eason albums have been these non-commercial alternative side tracks such as "My End of the World" (from God Bless My Lover) and "Aspirin" (from The Easy Ride). When amplified to the length of an entire album, these tracks may not be as exciting as they can be when placed around karaoke-friendly ballads. Nevertheless, Listen to Eason Chan gives a much-needed energy boost to 2007 Cantopop, which has once again been flooded by pop idol ballads. For an artist at the peak of his music career to make his fans adapt to his liking rather than the other way around, Eason Chan is not only one of the most talented artists in Cantopop - he's also one of the gutsiest. Thanks to his adventurous spirit, Listen to Eason Chan may be noise to some, but a feast for the ears for most.

Synth Pop Extravaganza! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Well, I've read the album sleeve of Eason's latest here, got my ears open, ready and willing, and after a complete listen to the 2 CDs showcased here over the weekend, I can conclude that this is one mega hit album! Certainly high energy in the main, but featured on the main album here are a fantastic range of mainly electronic dance songs, all having great infectious melodies and high caliber electronic hooks. Some numerous alternatives are showcased here, also, such as the Latin American "Mario Party" salsa opener, one riveting rock track and two excellent ballads in the form of "Crying in the Party", and the great bonus track by Eason and Andy Lau "Brother" - to make one fullfilling and top sounding album. Vocals of Eason's are great, too, and for me this is the first time I have had the pleasure of listening to Eason's music, than normally catching the movies he appears in. Talented in both, most definitely! A lot of the tracks here also hit the right cord with me, as they have strong affiliations to some of the early 80s synth pop and alternative stuff I was into then, and this CD won me over in that respect. But, nevertheless, this is great and immediately appealing album in its own right and the juxtapositions of sounds and songs are a nice fresh appeal to those (for me anyway) 'New Romantic' daze in the 80s! I loved the Depeche Mode/Vince Clarke styled electronic dance tracks with "Flash" and "Concert Live Gig", which are two great synth pop numbers. (Also heard two excellent similarly styled electronic tracks on Stephy Tang's "Stephilosophy" CD).

I'll briefly mention the tracks here, cause I just know certain people who may cast their eyes over the influences and styles this album contains, would just love to hear this. If you are a synth pop music fan - you just want to get this and if you haven't tried that yet - give Eason's album here a spin (after you've bought it of course) as its one of the best examples I've heard, so far, of Canto Synth pop you can get!

Track 1 "Mario Party" - Salsa type Latin American pop ditti (similar to Twins "Samba" a bit)
Track 2 "Tropical Island Serenade" - soft electronic soul/disco melody, light dance number
Track 3 "Flash" - this is for me where the album knocked me for six! Great electronic 80s synth pop with infectious electronic rhythm, fast and edgy (reminded me of UK 80s stalwarts Depeche Mode and Erasure). Great!
Track 4 "Concert Live Gig" - another great and 80s styled electronic piece, with hand clapping synths, industrial dance beat (plus a bit of Ultravox sound in the mix).
Track 5 "Waterloo Station" - more electronic sounds, moderate rhythm and a nice bouncy synth pop track
Track 6 "Crying in the Party" - this is where the electronics have a bit of a rest and with a change of tone here. Excellent and emotive ballad. Nice vocals and song.
Track 7 "Maniacal Revolution" - fast rock and roll guitar edged number (soft rock and fast - not heavy). Brilliant melody!
Track 8 "The Chameleon" - synth pop electronics returneth- mainly upbeat melody, with a bit of a Numan type back ground synth line. Unusual, but still very upbeat.
Track 9 "Wheel of an Era" - Great sweeping syths track, with electronic piano and dark edged synth line. Great vocals form Eason. Like this track a lot!
Track 10 "What do you Want?" - I know this may sound strange, but this one reminds me similar of closing songs to some of Akira Yamaoka's music to the "Silent Hill" games. A bit more lighter but good, too!
Track 11 " Brother" - This bonus song features lyrics by Andy Lau and is one wonderful and moderately paced ballad and great finish to a magnificent album.

There isn't one track I didn't like out of these at all, either!

Black Tee (Remix Version)

As this is more related to the electronic music and technical side of this two disk set, I have focused more on the music sound than Eason's vocals aspect - as in itself, this is a great alternative addition to this 2 disk CD set.

Utterly and totally what you would expect in the remix / dub department, this is a thoroughly and strongly top heavy electronic remix of the "Listen to Eason Chan" CD. Although ladled with lots of multi track electronica in the dance and 80s/90s pop groove, this still leaves Eason's main album intact to the core, without submerging the music into a totally different form, and complements the main album. This is just an absolute excellent set of remixes, too, with layers of bass beat synthetics, techno pulses, and heavily industrial dance music rhythms, that you feel by all of this that you could disappear into the third eye, by all the multi layered sounds here. Kudos to all the mixing desk guys involved and of their techno wizardry here (Harry Potter would have a hard time being as wizard as these guys!).

This whole remix version dubs are 80s / 90s dance style, which again gave me a nostalgic feel for bands I listened to in the 80s. (Human League, Vince Clarke, New Order, Orbital, Gary Numan, Depeche Mode, Bill Nelson, Visage, Bomb the Bass, Ultravox, Yazoo, Cabaret Voltaire, that sort of thing). Remix of tracks 3, 4, 7 and 8 were undoubtedly for me bringing UK synth guru John Foxx to mind by the industrialized synth moods and effects here. Fantastic sounds here, too! With Eason's remix CD here, I cannot imagine anyone sitting still for long by this mega fest of electronics, and by the quality of these mixs can be enjoyed by electronic dance and electronic synth pop music fans alike.

A great big 5 stars for this album and to Eason to dish out something energizing and fresh to you guys. And thats 5 stars for each CD! I have certainly enjoyed all of this (okay, it sings a bit too nostalgically in my case, I guess), but this is quality stuff in its own right. If you really like electronica dance music, you'll love this I can assure, and with Eason's music alongside, you get a totally wonderful double serving of CD loveliness here! This is a magnificent set and strongly recommend it! You'll dance the blue's away, thats for sure!

Just a small note - this is a re-submit as I reviewed the vinyl version by mistake at first . Sorry!! I have the CD version.

Big surprise Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I was surprisingly happy to listen to this full new album. Contrary to all of his previous albums where you can find 2 or 3 radio hits (pop songs), this one only include 1 song of this kind (6th track - Crying in the party). All other tracks have more rhythms but are all different and all worth to listen. We can discover a new facet of Eason (creative and renewing himself). My favorite tracks are 2, 5, 6. Then, I would add the 3, 4, 9 and 10. By after, the others tracks. To mention is that Eason has particpate in the production of 3 tracks (7, 10 and 11). This is one of his best album in my opinion. I'm pretty picky at the point that I didn't bought his previous album where in my opinion was not that great (only found 3 good tracks). So, I think you can trust me and buy the original version of this album. The only bad comment of this album would be the lack of any picture booklet. But you get a remix album bonus.
