I was so excited when Raymond’s debut album was released (23 November 2007)!! I’ve been waiting so long for it XD From the day it was released, download links were already distributed around the net so I listened to a few because I just couldn’t wait ^^ I loved the songs!! I knew I had to buy it to support Raymond =D I was going to purchase it from YesAsia.com but my sister offered to buy it for me as my Xmas present instead !! Thanks so much sis! I didn’t listen to the songs since that day and waited patiently to received the official thing ^^ And yesh, it finally came through the mail today!! *so excited ^^*
OKIES! It comes with this cool poster, with the lyrics of the songs printed on the back =D hehe..it pictures Raymond putting his face through a TV screen. The hands are starting to look a bit confusing ey? wheee!!
And here’s a pic of me with the cover of the album! I couldn’t choose the cover because YesAsia distributes it randomly (one out of the three), but I’m quite satisfied with this one =) Its a bit weird how the box/cover is cardboard, but hey its different ^^
And inside there’s also a booklet with lots of Raymond photos ^^
First thing I did was watch the two MVs that came with it~ one which I’ve seen online, the sub themesong of The Drive of Life~ featuring Linda Chung. I was surprised to see that the second MV also had Linda in it lol ehehe..the two MV seemed linked~~~Raymond was quite emotionless in the first MV ..it didn’t look like he was singing it so it was a bit bland, the second one better in that aspect I guess =)
I can’t decide which song is my favourite yet, will have to listen to it a few more times because they all sound really nice and soothing ^^ I can listen to it over and over again…ahha =D Its an awesome album and I’m just so happy at the moment lol
Finally, no requests for links to download the songs please. I won’t be putting them up to share and hope all of you will support Raymond by buying the CD!!! ^^ I might do some screenies of the MV though~ they really remind me of Alfred and Seung Joi Sum from Heart of Greed lol
