Synopsis:
  Because the producers took a very important role in the sale success of the first album “Magic,” we especially invited the golden producing team again for this new album. Chung-Ming Hsueh (薛忠銘), Chih-Ping Wang (王治平), Yi Huang (黃怡), Peter Lee (李偲菘) and Jay Chou (周杰倫) are named “Five Music Tigers” now. They all appear in this new album again to create aother Jolin’s music dynasty!
 
   In order to match the concept of this record, “new music territory,” the record team wanted the territory to be like a “castle” hiding plenty of treasures. It is like Jolin always bringing up surprise! We especially combined the idea of “sky, land and sea” to develop this album with “birds flying in the sky,” “white horses in the forests,” and “blue fish in the deep ocean.” “Birds flying in the sky” stands for dancing songs full of passion and energy. People will want to dance with the music. “White horses in the forests” is saying that this album has several erotic but fresh music styles. They allow people to imagine as much as they want. “Blue fish in the deep ocean” represents one-after-another, listening ballads. Plus the attire and action movement. Completely build Jolin’s own music territory.
 
   This album also shows Jolin’s various vocals by including different tyoes of music. For example, “36 Tips for Love” and “Priority” have Jolin’s personal “sweet metal” style. “Just Love” is a sweet, relaxing, swift song. “Sweet metal” means the mixture of Jolin’s sweet vocal and heavy metal elements from electrical guitars and basses. They don’t conflict to each other; instead, they add on the power of the melody!
 
   ”Pirtae” is a “new mixed music” by Jay Chou. It mixes the middle-century ancient atmosphere with hip-hop. “Good Cat” is the mixture of Latin music and heavy hip-hop. Jolin imitated cat sound, presenting power and sweetness. “Love Love Love” is a sweet single with the French and Mediterranean feelings. It facilitates people’s desire to fall in love! “Rewind” is Jolin’s first try on “English rock.” She is comparable to male rock’n’roll artists!
 
   The ballads are “Disappeared Castle,” “Taste of Lemongrass,” and “Starter.” Jolin has more emotional singing in the three and is more capable of emotion control. Jolin has a good hand at those details, which has surprised many people!
