How did I get into Faye Wong, I feel like it was by chance or… maybe her Eyes On Me single? Either way I think she has such a gorgeous voice an her music most of the time is pretty good and creative. Shirley Wong is her first album; it’s pretty much blase. It’s just such an incredibly forgettable album. The only song that stands out is However That Day, every other song plays like quiet or dull filler. I mean a couple tracks are OK, but it’s over all very underwhelming. Faye’s music gets much better, but I’m pretty up and down with her albums as a whole due to her constantly changing her sound (like Ayumi Hamasaki does). Shirley Wong is another album that I would recommend only if you’re a fan or collecting her music, otherwise it’s just not good. Her voice is beautiful though, if that counts.
