Hear My Voice is the second full length Japanese album (and last, to date) of Taiwanese R&B artist and composer, Leehom Wang (ワン・リーホン), and was released on July 28, 2004 by Sony Music Japan International Inc. The album failed to be commercially successful, peaking at No.132 on the Japanese Oricon Weekly Charts staying on the charts for just one week.[3]

About the album[edit]

This album is a compilation of Lee-Hom's past successful Mandarin songs from 1996–2003 but sung in the Japanese language. The album contains twelve songs, all of which are original songs from his Chinese albums If You Heard My Song (如果你聽見我的歌) to Unbelievable (不可思議). Most of those songs were changed significantly from their original versions and made specifically for this album. The first single "Miracle of Love" (愛の奇蹟) was promoted as an original Japanese song, although an earlier Chinese version does exist. The second single "Dream Again" was actually an English song included in White Paper (白紙) but the Japanese single has new music arrangements and a completely different chorus. Most of the original Chinese songs can be found on Lee-Hom's best 2-disc compilation Evolution (王力宏音樂進化論: 新曲+精選). The album is unique because the original Chinese songs have different musical arrangements in their Japanese counterparts in this album. Also, some of the Japanese lyrics are not direct translations of the Chinese meaning of the original songs. The album includes a picture-book with some photos of Lee-Hom and lyrics to all of the songs on the album.
