Finally FUN/UPBEAT/POP Taiwanese music
Danson Tang - D1 The First Second

  1. I’m Back (rap feat. f(x) Amber)
  2. 灰色河堤 (pinyin: huī sè hé dī)
  3. 陪你 (pinyin: péi nǐ)

  10. 開心對不對 (pinyin: kāi xīn duì bù duì)

I ain't gonna lie. I'm not really a fan of Chinese/Mandarin/Taiwanese music. But this album I can enjoy. It has that modern electronic sound that much of China/Taiwan are lacking. In the case of American music I ask for more ballads/ and yuhknow raw singing. But people who know anything about Chinese music know that there are way too many love songs/ blahblah ballads. The whole music industry is just erupting from cheesy mush.
So I'm glad.

Finally some upbeat music I can listen to for fun! Granted half the album is still super slow and mushy but hey it's progress for some all party music cd. Can't wait for that day to happen.

OMFG AUTOTUNE YES -> Bu Cheng Wen Gui Ding
Electronic -> I'm Back (ft. Amber) That chick from f(x) can fucking rap, mang.

Rating (on a Taiwanese pop scale) : 10/10
