Eman Lam Yee-man returns with new album On the Go [Review]

Eman Lam's second solo album is a far leap from her first, showing confidence and maturity. Tackling everything from pop and rock to dance and funk, On the Go has songs written by Lam's former at17 partner Ellen Joyce Loo and renowned songwriter Anthony Lun, and it's packed full of inspirational lyrics.

Aptly named after the iPod playlist, it's a good choice for those in need of some courage for adventure and love.

The album picks up with the jazzy Do You Love Me?, sung in a mix of Putonghua, English, and Cantonese. The harmonies are near-perfect and a flute adds playfulness to the song.

Blessing is definitely the album's highlight. It's a Broadway-style piece recorded with minimal accompaniment to show off Lam's smooth voice. It features beautiful lyrics from Lam's talented older brother Chet, and Lun himself plays piano on the song.

The album ends with the soothing Beginning, which speaks of a desire to return to the start - a perfect excuse to listen to the album all over again.
