YesAsia Editorial Description

Eric Suen came back to Hong Kong pop music in 2007 with his best-of compilation So Far So... Close and was greeted with a warm welcome by listeners. His 2009 new album's title track "Only Want to be With You" is a prime example of the heart-warming ballads he's famous for, and the single's Mandarin version closes the album perfectly. Other songs include the second plug "West Dowager", a fashion tribute with a political undertone penned by Wyman Wong, and "My Favorite", the theme song for Pages of Treasures, the TVB drama Eric stars in. The bonus DVD contains music videos of "Only Want to be With You", "West Dowager", and "Multiple Injuries".

Eric Suen Sustains the Standard (Part 4) Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
In a surprising, dramatic switch from the melancholic track 8, track 9 “我的最愛” is a joyous, lighthearted J-Rock-esque piece. Eric’s voice dances over the notes and the entire song practically overflows with optimism. Certainly a good pick-me-up song for blue moments! Grade: 4.9/5

While track 10 “四季酒店” has an interesting title and lyric concept, the melody is somewhat forgettable in comparison to the other ballads. It does fine as a wind-down to an otherwise strong collection though. Grade: 4.0/5

Track 11 “只要和你在一起” (國): In a fair attempt, 徐世珍 pens the Mandarin lyrics to the hit single, but compared to the Cantonese “original”, the overall effect is somewhat lackluster as the music’s melody places stress on certain individual sounds that don’t quite correspond with the words that should be emphasised. I feel that the Mandarin version needs a bit more of a rewrite in order to be more memorable. That said, Eric’s Mandarin diction is still very good and overall the song does fine as a close to the whole album. Grade: 4.2/5

Eric Suen Sustains the Standard (Part 2) Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
The 4th track is the other promo song “西太后”, which fuses R&B with Peking Opera elements. This is an excellent example of Eric’s experimental nature when it comes to songs, though the concept is not a new one to those familiar with the Taiwanese pop scene (think Jay Chou). Still, it diverts from Eric’s usual ballads and his slightly husky voice in its R&B mode does well to infuse the song with its modern feel. The big surprise to me was the discovery of just how much of this track’s successful elements should be credited to Eric’s himself. He was the one who felt that the song had a very strong Chinese-feel and suggested the addition of the er-hu and Peking Opera sections. Even better, the opera bits were sung by Eric himself, who in a fit of playfulness delivered a surprisingly convincing performance. He’s been singing this song live recently and it gets better each time you hear it. Grade: 5/5

The 5th track “走失” boasts Eric’s own composition in terms of music (co-written with Jason Edmonds) and lyrics, and for once the recipient of this tribute is not an invisible lover but none other than the Holy One Himself. To make this song stand out even further, Eric enlisted the help of the much renowned Boys II Men singer Shawn Stockman, and the singer revealed in a radio interview that this song uses about 80 tracks (compared to the usual 16 to 20) layered one upon another in order to achieve the final impact of a true-blue American R&B song. The lyrics written by Eric (apparently on the plane ride to L.A.) are sincere and are likely to resonate with Christians all over the world. The melody is smooth, catchy and definitely likeable, but not quite hit-single quality compared to his earlier work “Here I Go”. Eric is still evolving (and ever-changing!) in terms of his writing style though, so I look still forward to hearing more of his own compositions in future. Grade: 4.5/5

Eric Suen Sustains the Standard (Part 1) Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
The ever-inventive Eric Suen continues to maintain the standard set by his previous two Cantonese albums. This time, the theme of the album focuses on the need for companionship with a strong emphasis on married life and the versatile singer takes on numerous personae in his vocal delivery. In terms of musicality, it is a worthy sequel to “So Far So Close” given the similar range of songs, though Eric has included a couple surprises to the mix with R&B and J-Rock songs. Overall rating: 4.6/5.0

Since the release of “In the Name of Love”, he has promoted just one song which is the title track “只要和你在一起” (a Canton-rewrite-cover of a hit song by Thai singer Chin), but the accolade paid to this one song alone has been quite spectacular. It recalls the sweetness of “So Far So Close”’s “永遠保護你”. It has won Eric numerous awards and word has it that it was the favourite wedding song of 2008. In a modern age full of broken relationships, the singer’s sincere rendition of the song’s honey-sweet lyrics succeeds in bringing a rare voice of optimism to a jaded generation. Grade: 5/5

The second song on the album “眼閉” (written by Jimmy Ong) reminds the listener of the painful love situation encountered in “思前戀後”. The track is a beautiful combination of a karaoke-friendly melody (which reminds me of Kay Tse’s “囍帖街”) and lyrics that cut to the heart, and Eric’s passionate delivery is the perfect medium to convey the persona’s pain. This song has the potential to be a great hit if it were re-lyricised in Mandarin given its lovely melody, which I feel is even catchier than that of the other promo song, “众伤”. Grade: 4.8/5

“众伤” is the 3rd track on this album. It boasts a high-profile creative team – the melody is written by Ben Tsang, the lyricist is 林夕, and it is arranged by 谢国维 and produced by 伍乐城. In comparison to “眼閉”, this song triumphs by virtue of 林夕’s superior lyrics. Quieter and more melancholic than the angsty “眼閉”, this song generalizes the pains and struggles faced and the wounds sustained by all participating parties in the universal fight for love. Again, Eric delivers the message convincingly with his soulful voice, but in terms of catchiness, this is one song that requires more re-listening to appreciate it more fully. Grade: 4.9/5
