Vuong Dung – Dzung

Vuong Dung’s debut, Trai Cam Mat Troi, was awesome, but her new follow-up Dzung is just awful. Whereas the first was a clever concept, the second is all over the place. She ditched her contemporary folks signature for soft, electric pop. Throughout the album she either sounds like Thanh Lam or Ngoc Khue. The album-closer “Son” (an upbeat folk tune written by Duc Nghia) is the only track that she actually sounds like Vuong Dung. It’s a damn shame to see a stallion going down in the pop race.
