Yeah!! "Confessions" is reviewed by French Website: SAKURA SUKI !!
Through all the 5 tracks in the EP, Fang-I provides us an amazing introduction to her world. She is influenced by Fiona apple, Alanis Morissette, Tori Amos, Rachael Yamagata and also Sarah Mclachlan, Her music is more in the style of pop rock, both sensitive and powerful and full of sincerity. Her voice is charming and elegant, fits perfectly and smoothly with her lyrics. From the very good opening song, Stupid Question, to the more rock-ish China Doll, passing by the passionate Wasted, the melodic Circle or the powerful vocal on Not so bad, you'll listen to the songs with great pleasure. There is also variation in style that will not lock her up with just one genre or into a single archetype. By the way, the excellent production of the EP (thanks to Christian Klikovits andAj Oliveira) and quality of the instrumentation, provide euphonious music to the listeners because the songs are easily absorbed. This EP breaks away from the usual music, which "kill" listeners' interest. The EP portrays good pop from the early 90's and tainted with a perfect amount of mainstream. Some people would criticize her for not being in the circle of "present-time music", but nevertheless our ears will be charmed by the engaging melodies. I'm going to pinpoint on one thing though, because there is always critic (but this should stop instantly), her accent is not perfect and sometimes the lyrics are a little too simple but as a whole, this does not ruin the quality of the songs at all.
Available on CD Baby or you can digitally download them online at affordable prices. I highly recommend you to get the EP of the charming Fang-I Liu and you will understand once you got hold of it. In my opinion it is very good and full of promises in the future to come if she carries on. After reading this review, I hope you know what is left to do.
