Totally Gay For
I am not ashame to admit that I am totally gay for Thuy Vu’s Thang Sau Troi Mua. He has such a marvelous tenor of a voice. His cello-like tone gets me every song. In particular is Trinh Cong Son’s “Diem Xua” where he holds the long notes in “Mua van hay mua cho doi bien dong…” and “Xin hay cho mua qua mien dat rong…” It’s so hypnotizing. This album has been my companion on the road. Viet Anh’s “Khong Con Mua Thu” cuts through the autumn’s misty morning and Trinh Cong Son’s “Dem Thay Ta La Thac Do” cuts through the night’s pathos. I have never been hooked on a ballad-covered album this long.
