YesAsia Editorial Description

Taiwanese mega star Jay Chou finally released his highly anticipated album November's Chopin on November 1st! Jay Chou has always looked up to Frederic Chopin, known as "The Poet of the Piano", as his idol since he started learning classical music at a very young age. Now it's Jay Chou's turn to demonstrate his poetic music in November's Chopin! The first track "Nocturne" expresses the intense emotions for a late lover with reference made to Chopin's famous Nocturne. Other tracks also carry a strong classic mood, which even extends to the cover and the pictures inside, all taken in Venice. The songs "Drifting" and "All The Way North" which he tailored for the blockbuster Initial D now appear in November's Chopin as bonus tracks, making the album a musical delight with as many as 12 enchanting songs!

This edition comes with a DVD containing the music videos for "Nocturne", "Snow-like Hair", and "All the Way North".

Professional Review of "November's Chopin (CD+DVD) (Taiwan Version)"

June 19, 2008

This professional review refers to November's Chopin (CD+VCD) (With Postcard)
A Musical Masterpiece by Jay Chou, November's Chopin

Pop star Jay Chou (Zhou Jie Lun) has just released a new album recently and has attracted a lot of attention in the Chinese community these days. With his first five albums all becoming mega hits, this latest work only confirms what we already know: Jay is the king of Chinese songsters. And in spite of coming a few months after the summer release period, the new songs are brilliant and well-worth the wait.

The first track "Nocturne" (yie qu), which was released on the air waves in advance, is a beautiful, sentimental song laced with the lonely echoes of classical guitar and piano. The combination of classical sound and rap vocals, as we all know, is vintage Jay. "Blue Hurricane" (lan se feng bao) is the hardest rock number and reminds us of "Coward" (nuo fu) and "Trapped Beast" (kun shou zhi dou).

After that, the mood suddenly changes with the calm and beautiful ballads of tracks three and four. This album has no shortage of lovely melodies that remind us of "The Poet of the Piano" Chopin whom Jay greatly admires. Track three "Hair Like Snow" (fa ru xue) begins with a high tone that fans will recognize as a new and fresh vocal range from Jay. The song has an oriental sound a la "East Wind Breaks" (dong feng po) and mixes Jay's special blend of traditional instrumentation and rap. "Black Sweater" (hei se mao yi) is a sorrowful ballad that seems like a new type of song in Jay's repertoire. Jay usually relies on piano and strings in his ballads; but this song surprisingly brings the guitar to the foreground. "Black Sweater" also features Jay's lyrical handiwork and guitar recital in the introduction. The simple and sad lyrics of this track will touch the hearts of fans everywhere.

The fifth track "Deserted on All Sides" (si mian chu ge), which Jay wrote himself, is the most interesting song on the album as it talks about the artist's travails with paparazzi photographers. Both comical and cutting, the melody has an air of seriousness that clearly expresses the artist's anger. The mixing of Korean rap by producer Michael Hammar is also very cool.

The sixth track "Maple" (feng), with lyrics written by Devon (Song Jian Zhang, affectionately known as "Bullethead") of the band Nan Quan MaMa, is a romantic ballad with melodious background strings that are so typical of Jay. The lyrics by Devon also fit perfectly with an autumn ambience.

Fans who appreciate heartwarming tunes like "Adorable Woman" (ke ai nu ren) and "Starry Mood"(xing qing) will love "Romantic Cellphone" (lang man shou ji). This avant-garde melody reveals how couples everywhere exchange short messages and pictures to express their love through mobile phones. In an album full of excellent songs, this modest tune will probably become a favorite among the ladies.

Track number eight "Counter Scale" (ni lin) is a Jayesque hip hop number featuring lyrics by Huang Jun Lang, who also worked on the words for "Checkmate" (jiang jun) and "In the Name of the Father" (yi fu zhi ming). The musical style here follows closely in the footsteps of the previous tracks.

After revealing a bit of manly pride, the next track "Malt Candy" (mai ya tang) is an all-embracing love song. It has a tad more rock rhythm than you find in "Simple Love" (jian dan ai). The last formal track on the album is "Coral Sea" (shan hu hai), sung as a duet with Lara (Liang Xin Yi), who is the only female member of Nan Quan MaMa. It is a big-hearted love ballad that sounds familiar and surprising at the same time. Dueting with Lara really comes off well as the track is probably destined to be a hit among karaoke lovers.

As bonus tracks, the album includes two songs from the hit movie Initial D: "Drifting" (piao yi) and "All the Way North" (yi lu xiang bei). Even though the bonus tracks do not match the album theme, fans won't mind because the songs clearly reveal Jay's unique personality. These 12 unforgettable songs interweave 100% Jay with new melodic streams, while the autumnal theme and the contemplative mood give the collection an exceptional polish. Beyond a doubt, this is Jay Chou's finest album thus far.

Jay Chou Fan Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I have so far only 6 of Jay's albums and this one is my favorite. He is such a talented person. I really love his music and I don't understand alot of it because i'm not asian or of asian descendent. Just a word or two in the whole song(because i'm learning Mandarin) but I can kinda get what's going on by his videos to his songs. This is a MUST BUY for any Jay Chou fan or even newcomer to Chinese music. You won't be disapointed.He is my favorite singer.

Very Talented Songwriter/Singe Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I have to admit I'm not a very big fan of C-Pop. However, Jay Chou (and Faye Wong) are exceptions; they have lots of variety in their music and I love everything they do. In Jay's case, I love the ballads, the rap, the R&B, the alternative, all of it. Also, I don't understand a word of Mandarin and I don't even like American R&B or rap, but I absolutely love all of Jay's work.

November's Chopin didn't get great reviews when it first came out, but I'd actually put it near the top of Jay's work.
Highlights of this album are:
1. Nocturne (Ye Qu) - the best song of the album, imo.
3. Hair Like Snow (Fa Rue Xue) - addictive
5. Attack From Four Sides (Si Mian Chu Ge) - great dance song! makes me want to drop everything and get up and dance!
7. Romantic Cell Phone (Lang Man Shou Ji) - nice alternative song...great guitar riffs in this song and nice melody
10. Coral Sea (Shan Hu Hai) - beautiful duet with Lara Liang Veronin; nice harmonizing here.

Actually, all the songs are quite good, and I can listen to this album without having to skip any tracks. Well, except for track 2 (Blue Storm) which kind of gives me a headache.

But this is still a very nice introduction to Jay Chou. And it should keep fans of his older albums happy. What can I say, he really is amazing. He's a diamond in the mud of C-Pop.

Amazing. Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
Just like all of Chou's albums, this is unique.
With song transitionings from rather slow and elegant ones to a more pop-ish feeling.
Definately a most buy for any fans. Or newcomers!

One Word - Quality Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Jay Chou is brilliant, there's no doubt about it. All these songs are fantastic, they are composed well and sang well. No real complaints, but Jay's music isn't for everyone but I urge you if you have not done so, give him a try. I did and I was overwhelmed. Taiwans music industry is in full flight with the likes of Jay, Jolin Tsai, Michael Kong etc... and the songs are so much more mature and have more depth than music from Hong Kong. Though a fan of both industrys I feel that Hong Kong is going down with only a handful of quality stars holding them up such as Hacken Lee, a sad thought but maybe times will change. Nevertheless - well done Jay!

More than wonderful Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I've never really been into the Chinese R&B genre, in the past I have heard songs by singers who just seemed to be imitating American R&B. However lately I decided to give Jay Chou a try and started with November's Chopin. With all the hype about him, I thought why not give this album a chance. Well I must say I was not at all disappointed. Now I know why he is called the king of Hiphop in Asia. Jay Chou's songwriting and singing is incomparable by all means. If you are a fan of R&B and looking for something new with originality, give this album a try, it is absolutely worth the buy!!
