YesAsia Editorial Description

Dedicated Taiwanese songstress A-Mei Chang surprises her fans with an all new album asking I Want Happiness? For this grand occasion she has chosen to give up her special position as pop queen with the intention to face music lovers in a natural down to earth style with a microphone as major addition to her vocals. Her latest ballad I Want Happiness? (Track 5) was written by her long-time collaborator Wu Yu Kang and revolves around A-Mei's most inner simple wishes. Among the other recommended songs are "Hostage" (Track 2) that presents a naturally touching melody and talks about the desperate position of women in love. For Chinese Girl Wu Yu Kang teamed up with new generation songwriter Cui Wei Kai to come up with an up-tempo disco-rock hybrid tune. Last but not least, A-Mei also lets her devotees enjoy the folk song "Unlike an Adult" (Track 3) with harmonic guitar sounds and her incomparable voice.

This edition comes with serial numbers.

A-mei,一趟面對自己的旅程…
閉上眼睛,安靜的聽她唱歌!
她的歌聲,唱出你我內心最深的原點

A-mei,一個最純粹的聲音
這是一張很私人的專輯,是A-Mei的,也是你的。

A-Mei,一趟面對自己的旅程…
2004的12月,一趟出走的決定,一個人拿起了行李,飛越22小時的距離,來到一個完全陌生的國度,晚上9點的時間,四周一片漆黑,站在即將生活4個月的家門口,轉動鑰匙「喀嚓」一聲,她,看見一間空無一物的房子,她,愣住了,這一刻,她閉上眼睛,只聽見大雪紛飛的聲音,所有的故事,從這裡開始…
從初次和阿妹見面,她像個小女孩似的興高采烈的分享著,這段稍微休息的日子,她終於做了一些過去她一直想做卻一直沒有去實現的事,卸下舞台上光鮮亮麗的身分,她到了Boston,在2、30個人的教室上著英文課,每天一杯熟悉的Starbucks、走著40分鐘的路程去上課…,暫時的離開,隨心所欲,一個人簡單的過著日子,沉浸在對所有人事物第一次接觸的驚喜,放逐著自己進行一場單純的生活紀錄…
當經歷所有外界事件的紛擾,阿妹還想做什麼;當所有人以為她擁有了一切,阿妹還想要什麼?不去介意張惠妹下一步還有什麼驚人之舉,這一刻,她的出現:只是個平凡人,只是個愛唱歌的女孩,將音樂回歸原點,人的部份還原自我,要大家聽見的、看見的她的真性情,分享著、感動著最直接、最純粹,此時此刻自在、安靜的…A-Mei。

A-Mei,一個最純粹的聲音
這是一張很私人的專輯,是A-Mei的,也是你的。
  
這一年半的沉澱,是很多人都無法想像體會的,放掉手上全部的工作,只是想更了解自己現在的心情,整理自己的步調,在繁雜炫爛的環境中,去體會自己的快樂在哪裡,從Boston回來的飛機上,A-Mei曾經一度認為自己不能再做回原來的A-Mei,從面對自己,聽見自己內心的聲音,調整自己的步伐,讓大家認識真實的A-Mei,我們很高興,她做到了,請大家細細聽著她的歌,也是你和我的心情。
  
整張專輯在統一風格中加入小巧思,我們聽到的是在創作人與樂風上也大量使用了新的元素,整張專輯在製作統籌陳子鴻與文字統籌鄔裕康的精心經營之下,激盪出精采的音樂火花:

★人質
吉他搭配弦樂四重奏,單純的旋律,低迴入扣的vocal,在我心上用力的開一槍 讓一切歸零在這聲巨響.....,深入淺出的詞意敘述,描繪女人在愛情裡的無奈,讓人咀嚼其中哀傷的滋味,輕易觸動人心。

★我要快樂
抒情感人芭樂歌,在文字統籌兼作詞人的鄔裕康,ㄧ路從豐華時期和A-Mei走來的默契合作,描寫著A-Mei的內心的單純渴望,也道盡所有人的感同身受。
★平常心
氣質芭樂K歌,A-Mei style的抒情歌,保留在商業通俗中呈現獨特專屬的質感與氣味。

★Chinese girl
由鄔裕康與新生代創作人崔惟楷合作,獨特的Disco beat與Rock style的結合,明亮輕快節奏,製造了一個迥然不同的想像空間。

★不像個大人
中板的Folk曲風,平穩的吉他,沒有誇張的唱腔與炫麗的編曲,真情流露真實的表現在音樂裡,沒有任何一個錯置的音符。
專輯所有音樂,從單純的原點出發,加入現實生活的人性化元素,愈是簡單直接,愈是容易感動,經營一種賦音樂性的專輯,靠近人群,切中情感要害的觸動人心,感同身受,卻不落入俗套,又添加新意的流行情歌路線。

Can't stop listening Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I have always been an A-mei fan; however, the previous two CD's disappointed me with its predominantly pop-rock tracks. With this new CD, A-mei has completed what she does best: making everyone "feel" the song and occasionally grabbing a tissue. My husband and I fight over who gets her CD for the day. I do NOT regret buying this CD at all. With all the new singers out these days, they still cannot compete against the best of the best who's name is A-mei :)

A-mei's amazing voice Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
I never really listened to A-Mei's music, but my mom always talked about her amazing voice, and when we found out that she was coming to Las Vegas for her 2006 world tour, my mom decided to go, even though we hadn't heard much of her music. She ... sang for an amazing 3 hours! And afterwards I was glad I bought one of the autographed CDs they were selling, and even though a lot of "young" people don't really listen to A-Mei, she is one of the few Taiwanese singers that truly has an amazing voice that almost nobody can top, and with this album she proves that she can pretty much sing anything and sound great. After listening to A-Mei, everyone else seems just average. This is a great CD and definitely shouldn't be missed if you want to listen to one of the best Taiwan has to offer :)

Intimate Setting... Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This mini-concert DVD took me by surprise. I intially thought that it would be a collection of her Music Videos for this new album, but instead, it was a promotional concert. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. I really enjoyed seeing A-Mei in an intimate setting, without all the distractions of backup dancers and singers, because she shines all on her own. She is capable of holding the attention of the audience purely through her singing and warm-hearted charm. Not that seeing her in a major venue is not fun, because it is a blast and one of the best experiences you could ever have as an A-Mei fan, but, it was good to see glimpses of the A-Mei we all fell in love with from the beginning... showing her vulnerable side, and not being afraid to shed a few tears... it brought back the memories of her immaculate performances from her 1999 concert~!! All of her work is amazing, I think she is incredible. Though I was not too pleased with the previous two albums, this has made up for any shortcomings over the past few years.

A-Mei is back in her full glory and to sum it up... she is truly better than ever.

The "Gold Standard" for 2006... Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I have to admit, I've never been a real fan of A-Mei because of her past trends in music to be mostly electronica-dance or R&B flavour. Yet, despite the style itself not being to my liking...I've admired her voice through the years. So, when I read here that this CD was a more acoustic, simple style...I had to buy it. And by doing so I received the best of both worlds: A-Mei's powerful and versatile voice with mostly acoustic guitar and drum-driven music. This is almost nothing of the A-Mei gone before. A grittier image in her photos reveals her transformation. With the exceptions of track #6 which is very much typical A-Mei electronica-dance flavour and track #7 which is again very much typical A-Mei R&B feeling...the rest of the CD is seamless and uniformly refined in a whole new style unto itself. Most tracks are simply done musically, but the ability in A-Mei's voice and her heart-felt interpretation of each song makes them rich and lush in a wonderfully approachable way. My favorite tracks are #1 (because it shows a totally new side of A-Mei and sets the tone of a beautifully meaningful CD) and #4 (because it is the first catchy, up-tempo track on this release that shows A-Mei can do fast songs without having to turn them into electronica-dance or R&B in nature...just basic, pure, refreshing pop). I'm sure A-Mei included tracks #6 and #7 to appease her old fans...but old or new fans will appreciate this down-to-earth and more earthy A-Mei. I usually like to offer comparisions in a review...but with A-Mei there simply IS no comparision: Old style or new style, she remains, as always the top-notch A-MEI CHANG.
