Chang Shilei – Niu China

Just as its name in English states, Niu China is the album to showcase what’s new in the Chinese music world. From traditional sounding Chinese ballads to chanson francophone fused with electronic, R&B, Bossa Nova, to a Tango-ish sounding track, all the way to a mind-blowing fusion of Beijing opera with strong rock/electronic sounds.

Seo Taiji finally released Atomos, his anticipated comeback. That alone is too much expectation, so it’s no wonder I feel totally let down by the album.

Britney Spears – Circus

Hate myself for saying this, but Circus is not as bad as I thought it could’ve been. The fact is, the album has some pretty catchy tunes, which include the first single Womanizer, Circus, Shattered Glass, Radar, and my guilty pleasure If U Seek Amy.
