Jay Chou's new album is full of future karaoke hits [Review]

 

Barely a month after Jay Chou was in Hong Kong for his Opus 2 World Tour, the Mandopop icon dropped his 13th studio album, Aiyo, Not Bad. It has everything you would expect from him: a range of genres, pictorial lyrics, and mumbled singing.

Yang-Ming Mountain is a strong beginning to the fun album, grabbing our attention with its super catchy keyboard riffs and witty lyrics.

Stolen Love is a mix of tango music bridged with an accordion solo, like an updated French movie soundtrack. But the accompaniment overwhelms Chou's singing, and you have to listen hard to make out the intensely romantic lyrics.

The album takes a dramatic turn with What Kind of Man, a sadly beautiful, but not very exciting ballad. Chou's singing seems strained when he hits the high notes, and his slurring hurts the song's emotional appeal.

No Chou album would be complete without a Chinese-style song, and he delivers with The Traveller, melding Chinese music with R&B beats. Along with Extra Large Shoes, a creative tribute to Charlie Chaplin and comedy, most tracks are potential new karaoke classics.

Aiyo, not bad at all.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. <a href="http://****SEORankingLinks.com">Seo Plugin</a>
