Review by: moopie

Hello, 大家好! This is my first post here… But don’t be too alarmed. As for who I am: I am 18/M/NYC and available! (editor’s note: This guy’s desperate!) I also don’t understand Mandarin particularly well nor am I particularly literate in Chinese, so forgive me if I butcher anything. But the real reason for this post is a review of Guang Liang’s new album, 不會分離.

Most of the songs in the album on the whole don’t really deviate much from his older work. None of the songs are particularly memorable: I just listened to the entire album three times, and would not be able to hum the melody of any of them, so those of you looking for another 童話, you’re not likely to find one here. On the other hand, most of the songs retain the sort of sappy sentimentalism of his old songs, so if you enjoy that sort of stuff, which I definitely do, you can’t really go too wrong with this album.

Songs that I did like, though, were 不會分離 and 雙子星. 不會分離 is kind of sad in a sort of 童話 way, but the end is a lot happier and a lot more optimistic, especially in the MV. I’ll admit it, the song made me want to cry. The tune isn’t that catchy though, and after listening to plenty of Guang Liang’s songs, the whole key change at the end is starting to feel a bit tired and cliché. For that matter, when listening to the first song of the album, 煙火, I couldn’t help but feel a bit of déjà vu. The song basically sounds like a slightly worse version of 約定, which is basically a slightly worse version of 童話. 雙子星 is a pretty cute song, though. Maybe a bit too cutesy for some, but I kind of liked the sappy cuteness of the song. Some of the other songs were a bit too slow for me and made me want to put my head down on a pillow and fall asleep. 風雨同路 was definitely the biggest offender here. It’s quite slow and the lyrics are nothing special. I Am Who I Am is not bad, but it’s been around for a while and isn’t new on this album. I’ve heard this song before and thought it was pretty good. It’s not a sentimental love ballad, which is a bit rare for Guang Liang, and the chorus is a bit catchy. All in all, I’d probably recommend 童話 (the album, not just the song) over this one if you haven’t heard Guang Liang before, but if you’re a fan of his songs, 不會分離 is definitely worth listening to, despite most of the negativity in this review.

煙火 / yān huǒ / Fireworks

Song Link | Lyrics

作詞:孔勝民 作曲:光良 編曲:中村知太

是否還記得 一起看煙火
我在你眼裡 看到閃爍

#冷冽的寒風 把你吹向我
抱你在我懷中 沒想太多
愛情裡的心動 常常讓我難以去捉摸
付出感情太多 原來多情人 總被傷得最重

*想起你的擁抱這感覺 短暫紀念 在你我之間
有時說變就變就像煙火 下一秒消失不見
想起你的微笑這畫面 短暫紀念 放在心裡面
你說過的永遠留在昨天 就當它是我最美的紀念

Repeat #,*

我的心情今天已換了季 天邊出現彩虹
晴朗陽光灑在我的天空閃爍
像是笑著告訴我愛到最後是寬容

Repeat *

還有你陪我走過這一切
記憶中你那些微笑的臉

不會分離 / bù huì fēn lí / Never Apart


Song Link | Lyrics

作詞:光良 作曲:光良 編曲:中村知太

明天我們暫時要分離 電話中你不捨的語氣
你說可不可以 放你的心在行李
跟著我飛行 我們就可以永遠不分離

每天要聽一次我愛你 你說這樣會感覺貼心
如果說我離去 你的心會下起雨
滿天是烏雲 整個世界少了空氣

#把你抱在懷裡 我們沒有言語
感覺離別前兩顆心在一起
我們抱在懷裡 我們不想言語
今天以後留下回憶 我們可以(一起)溫習
我愛你 不言語 這一刻天在哭泣

離別那天你為我送行 說好我們不難過傷心
我說可不可以 一路握你的手心
放在我懷裡 這樣才能感覺你的呼吸

站在離境門前看著你 臉上你捨不得的表情
如果說我可以 用全宇宙的魔力
讓時間暫停 讓我們可以不分離

Repeat #.#.#

我愛你 不放棄 這一刻不想分離
不會分離 不會分離 不會分離 不會分離 不會分離 不會分離

併著肩迎接著挑戰 貢獻彼此淚和汗從不偽裝
不要害怕你走得緩慢 總有一天會到下一個幸福的車站

風雨路 我們攜手共渡 三色石 牽絆不了進度
憑著各自堅持與領悟 感受互相扶持的幸福

漫長路 慶幸你我同步 三葉草 陪伴著不卻步
不同理念和方式互補 鋪造一條屬於我們驕傲的道路

併著肩迎接著挑戰 貢獻彼此淚和汗從不偽裝
不要害怕你走得緩慢 總有一天會到下一個幸福的車站

風雨路 我們攜手共渡 三色石 牽絆不了進度
憑著各自堅持與領悟 感受互相扶持的幸福

漫長路 慶幸你我同步 三葉草 陪伴著不卻步
不同理念和方式互補 鋪造一條屬於我們驕傲的道路

風雨路 我們攜手共渡 三色石 牽絆不了進度
憑著各自堅持與領悟 感受互相扶持的幸福

漫長路 慶幸你我同步 三葉草 陪伴著不卻步
不同理念和方式互補 鋪造一條屬於我們驕傲的道路

I Am Who I Am

Song Link | Lyrics

作曲:光良 Michael 作詞:孔勝民 Sam Kung

歌詞:
I Am Who I Am 我就是我
清晨醒來的我 昨夜夢依舊
在熟悉的街道中 尋找你影蹤
在世界奔走 我感覺不寂寞
有一個人 熟悉又遙遠 抓不住的思念
夕陽紫色天空中 你我承諾過
眾多掌聲的背後 你給我最多
一起走過 每一個低潮和失落
現在的我 站在舞台 揮灑自我

I am who I am 看著你的眼
眼神的交接 不須語言 穿透我心田

I am who I am 想念你的眼
溫柔卻堅決 這一刻最美 我失去防線

清晨醒來的我 昨夜夢依舊
在熟悉的街道中 尋找你影蹤

雙子星 / shuāng zǐ xīng / Gemini

Song Link | Lyrics

作詞:林白 作曲:光良 編曲:中村知太

#天上的星星數不清 最亮的是你
不管有多遠我願意 放棄一切尋找你
我不需要 用時間為我證明 就可以肯定
你的快樂 傷心我都能感應 我們就像雙子星

*我們面對面 掛在天邊 在黑夜裡連成一條線
你和我之間 只能相連 兩顆心 有一樣的信念
我們面對面 掛在天邊 流星畫出一條拋物線
我許的心願 早已實現 就是我們 永遠 陪伴在彼此身邊

Repeat #,*

我們面對面 掛在天邊 在黑夜裡連成一條線
你和我之間 只能相連 兩顆心 有一樣的信念
我們面對面 掛在天邊 流星畫出一條拋物線
我許的心願 早已實現 就是我們 永遠一起擁有每一天

  1. thx 4 the commentary~
    it seems lik it’s nut just his albums…every new album doesn’t seem as gud as the previous ones….sigh…

  2. I don’t completely agree.
    I can easily say that Never Apart is like, the BEST guang liang song, but album wise, i would agree with you there. HIs old songs were better in numbers, but best song he’s made, i love Never apart. I hear it almost all the time. xD

  3. … Have you ever heard Tong Hua (Fairy Tale)?

    Actually i have another opinion regarding this album. This album is actually using different concept from previous album. As u all can see those songs in this album is no longer much focus on sadness of the song but is another attitude towards love. Never Apart as the main song reminds us that no matter how far we apart from our love ones, but our heart will never apart. I really like the song and the MV. As for fireworks, the song remind us that two people already broke up and it remains as memory. As for xuang ji xing, the melody and whole concept of the song is very relaxed. I dont think he sang this kind of song in previous album. Lastly as for feng yu tung lu, this song is actually about the love for country as this song is one of the song in ai guo99 album (Malaysia). If u listens to the lyric, u will find it very meaningful because “through thick and thin we stand together”. He definately trying to use another concept to present his best songs to us. I m not literate in chinese and mandarin as well but i definately can feel the meaning of those songs.

  6. who is the woman name at guang liang video 不會分離
