I actually thought I was going to write off Fish’s third album Shining Star, I don’t remember it being this pleasant of a listen when I first heard it. At first I thought I’d listen to it, like a few songs and then write it off or not really remember it. However, with songs like Shining Star, Most Desired World to Travel and a Plan to Visit the Sea it actually stands out a lot more than it would have. The others were nice as well in their own right; Fish’s voice is quite nice bringing a warmth and charm to her love songs. I’m glad I actually like this album, instead of just finding it to be boring or relegating it to decent background music. Her previous two albums didn’t stick like this one.

I get why they call Fish Leong the Queen of Love Songs, or whatever, because her albums really do play like one overly long love song. Courage is her second album and it’s pretty boring. None of the tracks aside from Swimming Pool Without Water really stood out to me, the others were either borderline boring or just a tame, sweet listen. Fish has a pleasant voice, but she doesn’t (at least on her first and this album), do anything with it. Everything is so safe and just not interesting at all. I really hope her other albums leave an impression, so far the only album that I know for sure won’t disappoint me is Silk Road of Love. I’m not saying this is a disappointing album, it’s just not memorable and plays as hot as lukewarm water.

Fish Leong is another singer I am surprised I’m into. I really liked her Silk Road song and just finally last year got into her music. I’m partial to her right now. As in I feel pretty indifferent when it comes to Fish Leong, but I think she has a nice voice and her music is good enough to keep me interested. Grow Up Overnight is her first album and it’s just like Faye’s first major studio album; pretty boring. I mean it has a really loving and romantic vibe¬†going for it that I like, but the songs are terribly forgettable and sound so much alike that they just bleed into each other which makes it hard for me to distinguish them in give a more fleshed out review. It’s nice for what it was going for, just not memorable.
