The COMPASS Group, February 2007

Artist: The Chairman
Title: Jin Ei Ah Gey Ei !? ("Is it for real?")
Label: Click Music Co. Ltd.

The Chairman has been proud of promoting "taike" or "Taiwanese Style" in its work. Without an exception, the band's new album takes this to the highest level ever. The cover and photos printed on the inside display authentic "taike" thoroughly with a good sense of humor and creativity. Some of the songs are inspired by old, classic Taiwanese songs, such as the narrative in the revised "The Revenge of a Man" by Wen-Xia, and "Cute Car" from "Cute Horse", which is specifically designed for ballroom dancing. Besides presenting the band's views of society in a goofy way, the album also includes heart-warming pieces. Although Taiwan's musical environment has been greatly influenced by Western culture, it is really heartening to see The Chairman's dedication to promoting local Taiwanese culture. I do hope that Taiwan's older melodies will live on with their efforts.
