This category is all about albums or artists who through their collaborations or inputs in their most recent albhms this year have shown maybe a part of themselves through their music that is very personal and true to themselves. This may be done maybe through the genre chosen , or their assertiveness in the creative process. Let's see who the nominees are:
Jam Hsiao(2011): Wild Dreams
This is the first album in which jam has asserted his creative control over the album by taking on the role of producer of the album and creating an album primarily of the rock genre , something which he has been renowned for , but interestingly have not been reflected in majority of his previous works. He uses his creative control to move the aim of this album back to basics , emphasising on the spontaneity and fretedom that is rock music , encompassing his own beliefs in the process. P.S he actually is nominated for the REAL golden melody awards , for best male mandarin singer , so very well done on his efforts!
Lara Liang (2011): hello lara
As her debut album away from the pop
So the second category we have is called 'see my 720 changes' , referring to jolin tsai's song , but it also used to award the not only the artist 's successful (emphasis on successful) change but also the growth and positive change that we can feel in their music that sets them apart from their previous works and that of other artists. The nominees are the following:
-genie zhuo : Just the way i am
Genie's long awaited album after a long break from the music scene has shown off a more personal side to herself and her acceptance of herself for who she is. Not only in terms of concept and the core of the album , she has demonstrated a risky change in the musical genres that expose her strong vocals. Well done!
-Rainie Yang : Longing for
Her 2011 album has shown a huge change from her previous albums. Once a long haired cutie pie with her light and clear vocals , her cropped new do represents her want for change. The first album where she has been given a say in the style which she wishes to employ , i have to say that she has done well in changing completely her image and taking on a very alternative rock-style image. Well done!
Verdict: the winner is genie zhuo , who has received much praise for her changes and is also nominated for best album in the fresh music awards this year! Well done to both :)
The first category we have here is 'Love at first sight'. Its a hard category to get into and there are very few selective participants chosen. Love at first sight refers to an album (not a singer) who captured my interest on the first listen.
Unfortunately this year although there have been many artists who have indeed caught my eye or have very promising albums , the nominee and winner of this category is Olivia Ong's 'Romance' . From this first listen i was totally encaptured by her sultry voice in combination with the just-right mix of melancholy , whimsy and excitement that is Romance. I thiroughly enjoyed the album , and recommend it to any who havebt yet listened to it.
