December 22, 2006 Best CD I've heard this year
Karaoke songs have become part of a formula of acceptance over the last years, causing very few artists having the bravery to try new genres. Joey who has stepped up to the challenge to sing different styles of music, giving some new flavors to the music industry and us CD listeners. In <Close Up> you can find up-beat songs, piano accompaniment, R&B and even a disco beat song... and last but not least a couple good Karaoke songs too. Rather than having the same few people write her songs, this time, Joey found a huge variety of well known writers to help put together her CD, including Ivana Wong, 藍奕邦, 陳奐仁, Eric Kwok, 張繼聰 and more.
My recommended choices are 心花怒放 , 華麗邂逅, 愛一個上一課, 傷神 , 喜喜, 黃色大門.
愛一個上一課: written by 藍奕邦, co-produced by Joey herself
喜喜: a disco beat song that is very ear catching and very fresh. it gives a very dreamy feeling
傷神: written by Ivana wong, Joey's interpretation of the song is awesome
(PS: Joey's favorite song she sung this year is 黃色大門)
Some of the big differences found in this Joey CD apart from previous Joey CDs is that Joey seemed to sing with more feeling than ever. She has become more expressive with her voice. Perhaps it is because Joey co-produced the cd herself, so she was able to express what she wanted herself. I really enjoyed the whole CD, and felt that every song was at done at least quite well, some done extremely well.

December 17, 2006 Long awaited
It's been almost a year since the last cantonese album's been released by HK Pop Queen Joey Yung. This album's first plug was a great success, following a 2nd plug that's a fast song, very different, very unique. I will definitely buy this album
September 26, 2006 Too Beautiful
I totally agree with David. Although this CD's message doesn't stand out radically as much as the previous 2, doesn't mean that the message is not strong and unified.
I really feel this CD has a great representation of David's music, and his purpose. To spread love. I love this CD and how well David sings. It's like he takes love and life and puts it in a simple manner...

Joey Yung One Live One Love Concert 2006 (2CD)1 people found this review helpful
June 20, 2006 Awesome
this concert was absolutely awesome, bringing world class musicians together to create a once in a lifetime performance.
1/2 of the songs were of joey herself and the other 1/2 were of great songs of many singers to her senior, including one from her past away singing teacher, roman tam.
this is a must have!
Ten Most Wanted (Version 2) (CD + Bonus CD+DVD)1 people found this review helpful
May 4, 2006 Just great.
The first CD is the original version Ten Most Wanted, a great collection of songs, and praised by most listeners. The bonus CD includes both a duet with the great Roman Tam and most importantly, Joey's Concert theme song (which is such an awesome song)
dvd... that's just a bonus on top... 4 nice mvs.
Ten Most Wanted (CD + Joey - Memo Pad)April 17, 2006 Joey's best album so far
Without a doubt, in terms of quality, this cd is the best of all joey cds. She taken a lot of effort to try new styles, new music as oppose to the regular k-song practice people label her as. This is an awesome CD. The best of all HK cds this year so far
March 28, 2006 I had hopes from the last cd, but disppointed now
This cd kinda reveals that besides the last cd's style(which was all about the same type of songs ) he can't sing anything else to a very high level.

January 19, 2006 One of the best concerts in the last 5 years
I just got the DVD some few days ago, and the first thing I did was check out the bonus DVD, which has footage of Joey and her guests, the making of the concert and the best part, the final encore on the 8th and last night concert which included 9 songs in which some were picked on the spot by the audience. Afterwards, I went back to the first disc and watched the concert from top to bottom. I have to say, Joey's dancing skills have become really really good. The opening was awesome, the ending was emotional the middle was full of great music and fun. For those who have yet to see how great of a performer Joey is on stage, THIS is the DVD to get!! I bet you will be astonished by how great of a stage performer Joey has become - being able to excel both at the emotional ballads and hot fast songs. Good Job Joey!!

December 21, 2005 Best Concert in Hong Kong of 2005
Joey really has reached a new level of being a performer. She's been able to combine singing, dancing and much more to produce a concert that's great to listen AND great to watch. Her images range from glamour to sexy to prettiness. Anyone who is a fan of Joey MUST get this. And anyone who doesn't think Joey can perform well, after watching this, I bet you you will change your mind.

December 2, 2005 The best Joey Concert Ever
Putting together 6 years of experience on stage, Joey really has put together her best solo concert. I've waited for this CD to come out since the very moment she finished her concert. I was very impressed with it. Song variety was good, and audience interaction was great. For this concert, Joey's incorporated a number of songs that everyone knows about, heard about, but never seen Joey perform. This CD has a bunch of non-plugged songs from her latest CD <Bi-Heart> and her last 2 cds, <Give Love a Break> and <Nin9 2 5ive> . This CD is a must have for a fan, and as well, a must have for any Canto pop lover.
