He raps about his faithfulness in love in the jazzy titular track featuring singer-songwriter Kiri T. The artist also sings about the desire for freedom in "Today I" which wittily references Supper Moment's "Endless," Paul Wong's "Young And Innocent" and Beyond's "Wide Ocean and Sky," "Glorious Days" and "20 Years of War." The six-track record also includes the carefree bicycle song Y.F. Express and "Cantopop," which expresses Jan's hopes for the future of Cantonese music.

Hoping for the best for Hong Kong
The frustration with Hong Kong's stressful lifestyle and stagnant music market has been growing in the city. By taking on various music genres, Jan Lamb revitalizes the monotonous Cantopop scene, and sends messages of hope and encouragement through the album Size 9.

Cantopop enjoyed widespread popularity in Asia during the 1980s and 1990s, and the early 2000s also saw the successful emergence of superstars Joey Yung, Eason Chan and Twins. However, the industry started to decline in the recent decade as local listeners turned to more popular music from Taiwan and Korea. Hong Kong songwriters and singers also produced Mandarin songs to expand their markets. Hoping that the industry can revive one day, Jan reminds listeners of Cantopop's golden days in the first track "Cantopop." The nostalgic song references the haunting opening and rousing chorus of Jenny Tseng's 1978 "Fight," which marks the peak of Cantopop music. The singer expresses his intense yearning for the good old days in the evocative hook "I want you Cantonese songs."

Apart from pop ballad, rock music is also a major genre in Hong Kong music. The singer pays tribute to well-known local bands in the frustrating rock ballad "Today I" (Track 3). Striving for freedom has been a popular theme in Hong Kong rock numbers, notably Supper Moment's "Endless," Paul Wong's "Young And Innocent" and Beyond's "Wide Ocean and Sky," "Glorious Days" and "20 Years of War." The singer-songwriter selects famous lines from these classic songs and sighs with disappointment that many people seem to have forgotten their initial dreams: "Let's persist with our attitude / Who will keep this attitude till they die." The powerfully stirring electric guitar and string accompaniments provide a perfect backdrop for the desperate cry for freedom.

Summoning up a vigorous boxing scene, the heavy rock jam "Hit Me Hard" (Track 2) manifests the undefeated spirit of Hong Kong people who struggle to overcome all the stress and frustrations of daily life. Life is compared to riding a bicycle in "Y.F. Express" (Track 5). While pedaling along, cyclists may encounter different adversities: They may fall off their bikes because of wild dogs. They may get scolded by truck drivers and surrounded by exhaust gas. However, the headwind will eventually turn into a breath of refreshing wind when they truly enjoy their lives. Jan's ear-pleasing vocals and the jazzy, brassy melody are beautifully interwoven to create a carefree holiday mood for the song. The relaxing jazzy vibe continues in "Size 9" (Track 6), which tells listeners to slow down the pace of life and treasure their time with loved ones.

Size 9 is a tailor-made album that fully resonates with local audiences. Through his unique vernacular lyrics, Jan Lamb highlights the importance of promoting Cantopop and expresses hope for Hong Kong's future. Featuring different styles of rock and jazz, the album also challenges the stereotype of Cantopop as dull ballad-driven music.
