In Jing Chang’s – Zhang Yunjing – second album, she takes on the composer’s hat and an edgier look. Playing with the concept of “opposites,” we see Jing Chang sporting two very different images, and both look like more than apt pop stars.

The first two singles, Broken and The Opposite Me – which she wrote – open the album with a more pop rock vibe, which is much more common in the Chinese music scene than anywhere in dance-pop Asia, and we would love her to explore it more. Instead, she softens the themes and begins talking about love. Sure, songs like The One (Ni Shi Wei Yi) have beautiful string arrangements for a catchy pop song, as well as rhythmic slow jams with a simple but beautiful piano on Quit Loving You, while songs like Mending have a nice touch for a closing album concept. But opportunity missed, I guess.

Best tracks? Broken, and The Opposite Me
