Lost in a Moment

Artist: Lene Marlin
Label: EMI Records

Listening to Lene Marlin sing is a beautiful experience. She tells stories with her music, and her stories are all things we have experienced before, told through her expressive voice and simple but meaningful lyrics. Different from run-of-the-mill commercial songs, Marlin's songs are like poetry--subtle, yet filled with emotions. Listening to them at different moments will stir up different emotions. Worth mentioning is the fact that Marlin has done a cover version of Faye Wong's famous song "I do". Her clean guitar and warm voice breathes new life into this song, adding an element of human warmth to this rather spiritual melody. This album also includes a few familiar songs that have been covered by Taiwanese singers, such as "Sitting Down Here", covered by Sandy Lam, a lively song that reminds you of little elves with wings darting about the forest. Genie Liu did a cover version of "Unforgivable Sinner", one of few Marlin songs that expresses dissatisfaction. These classic Lene Marlin songs add to the value of her new album. If Lene Marlin is a name new to you, this album will be all the more valuable. --By Purple Strong Yang, translated by Cara Steenstra
