Captain Peanut / Oh My God! / I Make Music

Captain Peanut¡¦s party starts with the first song of this album, "Boppa Nova,¡¨ which mixes a Bossa tempo and chorus. This album features guitar and saxophone and comes with a little flute music. The song, ¡§When You Talk To Computer¡¨, features talking, breathing and guitar playing. It's clear that Captain Peanut loves to entertain as they constantly alter musical styles, such as "Disconova" which will remind listeners of the "love boat" era of cruise ship travel. At the end of the album, two Bossa Nova songs also include guitar, simple percussion instruments and saxophone.¡XProvided by I Make Music


Chiang Mei Chi / Once Again / Virgin

Many people will say that Chiang Mei Chi's newest album shows that she is getting more mature. Due to the demands of the market and the need to seek her own style, Mei Chi has found a place for her own music that differs from previous albums where she was still exploring. Sandee Chen, who has a strong feminist streak, produced ¡§Once Again¡¨, which is a mix between folk and trance music. The love song "To Waste a Lover's Patience" was written by Mei Chi and A-Hsing and Monster of the group May Day. Those looking for music to add to their summer fun should pick up this album.¡XBy Selena Huang

Steve Ryals, a music critic with New Age Retailer magazine in the U.S., gave Danny high praises calling him¡§a romantic composer and a sensitive pianist with a pair of hands that are very capable of expressing emotion.¡¨ If you love piano music, this is one album you won't want to miss.--Provided by Jingo
