After a long break from the music scene, Peggy Hsu is finally back with her latest album <La Valse>, a whimsical and enchanting take on the Waltz, both on the dance and the musical genre. It's a conceptual masterpiece; with each and every song written in the 3/4 time which is signature of the Waltz musical genre. Like the variety of dances that the waltz embodies, from the scandinavian waltz to the Valse Musette, Hsu's album defies the expectations of listeners by presenting a diverse selection of styles in the 3/4 time signature, from ballads to soft rock, lullaby-like tunes to chanson-inspired pieces. But staying true to herself, Hsu seamlessly weaves her own signature disney-like magic throughout the whole album, adding her own personal touch of whimsy, childlike wonder and bittersweet nostalgia to each song within the album. This album is Hsu's own interpretation of the Waltz; a dance that expresses to her and to her audience that pure and simple desire that we've all had since we were just children-to be free to dance, to sing, and to explore the world.But Hsu shows that growing up isn't all fun and games, with a moral behind the whole story, cleverly and intricately placed at points throughout the album-we all have to grow up sometime and face reality. Time will always continue moving forward, as we all know too well, but whenever it feels like reality's too much to handle, Peggy's album will always be a safe haven you can turn to.
