Professional Review of "C'mon in (Hong Kong Version)"
Eason Chan is one of the few popular Hong Kong singers who has been consistently active for nearly 20 years. While many other superstars have gone on rest mode or switched focus to acting due to the downturn in the music market, Eason still continues to develop his singing career. Though he has slowed down the album releases in comparison to his younger days, he regularly holds concerts, serves as a mentor on a Chinese singing program, and, most importantly, still produces new albums of newly written and composed songs. To promote C'mon in, he even filmed a five-episode music special series and held an album release showcase, showing his interest and passion for music from the bottom of his heart.
C'mon in comes with ten songs produced by Swing's Jerald. The album's lyrics are mainly written by Kevin Yi and Ge Da Wei. One track is jointly written by Rubberband's No. 6 and Tim Lui. Some of the album's songs, like "Sigh," "Soar" and "Miss," were already previously released on music streaming sites or digital music platforms.
When I received this album, I focused on one question: Has Eason chosen more of the same for his first album in two years? Did he just group together a bunch of already released singles and movie theme songs? Or does he have the guts to continue to make what he likes and believes in?
Looking at the whole album, I think the answer is the latter. First, we see that Eason did not forcibly stick in all his singles from the past two years, such as "Four Seasons," "So Many Tomorrows" and "Meet in This World." (Actually, in consideration of his popularity, even if that was the case, there would still be a market for the album.) Secondly, he has not become stagnant. He isn't bent on replicating the formula of past successes and creating the next "Karaoke King," "Love Transfer" or "Long Time No See." He still has the ambition and energy to wholeheartedly make an album that is not constrained by previous models, music styles or market calculations, to boldly present a work that he believes is fun and enjoyable, and to readily show his values, feelings and mentality at age forty – nonconforming but not unfettered. Because the album has a consistent and easy-to-understand theme, you have to listen to it altogether as an album to get its appeal. Those who are close in age to Eason, or grew up listening to his songs, should easily resonate with the album.
In truth, this album is outstanding. The songs are diverse and not restricted to one style. Lyrics and melodies are solid; arrangements are playful and surprising while still sounding proper. Upon close listen, the songs are lively and not typical. Rather than seeking catchiness, the songs are focused on preserving the different qualities of Eason's voice and allow him to give versatile performances. Even though this is a Mandarin album, you can hear the kind of energy and passion that was present in his past Cantonese albums. What is most memorable to me is that the album's songs – be it in arrangement, beats or Eason's lively performance – all give off the feeling that he is singing very happily this time, and this happiness has the ability to infect the listener.
Admittedly, whether one likes the album's songs or not depends on personal preference. What I care about is that he dares to be playful and sings happily: Isn't that exactly what we've loved about Eason? He still has the heart and strength to do more. Even if he doesn't repeatedly create classic love songs or catchy plugs, what's the harm in that? Eason Chan becoming old-fashioned and formulaic is not what the public wants.
The lead track "Miss" is the most easily digestible song of the album. The tune is smooth and melodious, the arrangement graceful and straightforward. The lyrics about missing the past reflect the helpless mixed feelings of city people: "Even if there is no moon, the days would still be fine / Most afraid of being busy, so busy, while missing the old days / What can't be snipped away is you crying with a smile, so frustrating." With the song being plugged during Mid-Autumn Festival period, it easily resonates with listeners.
"Sigh" is an earworm with sharp beats and enjoyable and realistic lyrics. It feels very honest, and the sea urchin comparison is also appropriate. The slogan chanting of the chorus section very much fits the mood of the song's protagonist, self-effacing yet a bit resentful. The laughing sound at the end, as if he is laughing at himself, provides a perfect finishing touch. Like an adult nursery rhyme, the final track "Soar" is an encouraging song with melody and lyrics that are increasingly appealing upon close listen. Eason's performance sounds very full-hearted and relaxed, and his falsetto comes out naturally.
The first track "Relax" has a very ear-catching opening, but at the same time, the verses and chorus give off a kind of leisurely feeling. Do the lyrics "Give up on pleasing others, move away from mainstream judgement, let go of burdens, freedom is an energy" reflect Eason's present state of mind towards making music? In addition, I think the current Eason is able to keenly grasp this song's sentiments and sing it calmly. The younger Eason may not be able to achieve such an effect.
"Wake" has an exemplary melody and arrangement. It would definitely be great to hear it live with a band. Eason sings the song freely, its lyrics reminding of his past work "2001 Space Travel." "Ready" has the air of a middle-aged man. The seemingly light and understated lyrics and arrangement reveal meaningful sentiments. The song carries a touching warmth, and Eason's singing sounds mellow and rich.
Among other songs, the Jone Chui-composed "Apart" and "Leap," co-composed by CY Kong and Jerald, are also worth listening to.
