Taiwan's prince of pop, Jay Chou, is in the middle of staging his third world tour. It is scheduled to start in Taipei next month and will eventually take him to venues all over the globe. Coinciding with this gigantic live event is the release of his latest album which features the new principal song "Cowboy On The Run". Composed by Jay and penned by Huang Jun Lang, the song drifts away from the usual mainstream sounds and carries a touch of old-time rural America. Still persisting with his own unique music style, Jay is all set to unfold his latest melodies.

This edition comes with a DVD containing two MVs.

My Thoughts
This is the 8th Jay Chou album. Generally, you'll still find his signature Chinese R&B+Rap Style, a little bit of Rock, a few tracks' were actually melodies taken from the soundtrack - Secret, which are nice melodies, and introducing a new style from him - Western Country Style (which turn off lotsa fans). LOL~

It's the first track actually - 牛仔很忙 Cowboy On The Run (Niu Zai Hen Mang), that created a mixed reviews & feelings from both the fans and non-fans. Most of them find it hard to accept such experimental style from Jay Chou.

Personally I find the track, funny+cute+fun! In fact, that's one of the reason that got me into getting this album... for my girlfriend - Wildchild (be warn!!! She's big fan of Jay Chou... watch your comments/remarks about Jay Chou, when she's around).


I have a couple of tracks I really like: 牛仔很忙 Cowboy On The Run (Niu Zai Hen Mang), 彩虹 Rainbow (Cai Hong), 青花瓷 Blue Vase (Qing Hua Ci), 陽光宅男 Sunshine Homeboy (Yang Guang Zhai Nan), 蒲公英的約定 Dandelion's Promise (Pu Gong Ying De Yue Ding), 無雙 Unparalleled (Wu Shuang), 我不配 I'm Not Worthy (Wo Bu Pei), 扯 Pull/Ripping (Che), 甜甜的 Sweetness (Tian Tian De), & 最長的電影 The Longest Movie (Zui Chang De Dian Ying)... which are the entire album.

LOL~ Hey I'm a Jay Chou Fan now! /KAKAKAKA~

seriously, it's nice!


Meanwhile, check out the MV from

I used to dislike Jay Chou's works, I have no idea what he's singing is all about (even though I find his lyrics are interesting), especially his acting. However, I changed my view after, experiencing his work from his 7th album - Still Fantasy 依然范特西.

I was impressed with the particular track 千里之外 Faraway (Qiān Lǐ Zhī Wài), duet with veteran Fei Yu-Ching. It was an unique collaborations, between old school way of singing+modern Chinese R&B. Not to mention, great music arrangement, and excellent film+cinematography on the MVs.

Then came the movie - Secret, a movie I was so reluctant to watch, due to his acting in previous movies, but was dragged by the number one fan, and so I went.

And again, he stunned+impressed me with more talents, and from then, I decided to become a Jay Chou Fan.
