Rashomon (Dance Without Limits 3D MV Collectible Edition) autographed cover

Rashomon aka Lover’s Puzzle (traditional Chinese: 羅生門; simplified Chinese: 罗生门; pinyin: luó shēng mén) is the seventh Mandarin studio album of Taiwanese Mandopop artist Show Luo (Chinese: 羅志祥) . It was released on 15 January 2010 by Gold Typhoon (Taiwan).[1]

The album was available on pre-order and three editions were released including the Rashomon (Dance Without Limits 3D MV Collectible Edition) (羅生門 舞法舞天3D影音典藏版) (CD+DVD). It includes a new song "舞法舞天" (Dance Without Limits) and 3D music video of the song, which was the theme song for 2010 Show Luo (Dance Without Limits 3D World Live) World Tour Concert.[2]

Album[edit]

The album's lead track "愛的主場秀" (The Leading Role) is Luo's trademark dance track, for which the music video was filmed at the historic United Palace Theater, New York.[3] The second lead track "習慣就好" (I'll Get Used To It) is in the style of a rock ballad, as well as "為什麼要在一起" (Why Were We Together) which has a jazz feel.

The tracks "愛瘋頭" (Head Over Heels) is the opening theme song; "生理時鐘" (Body Clock), "愛不單行" (You Won't Be Alone) and "In Your Eyes" featuring Rainie Yang are insert songs of Taiwanese drama Hi My Sweetheart, starring Luo and Yang.

The album debuted at number one on Taiwan's G-Music Weekly Mandarin and Combo Charts, and Five Music Chart at week 3 (15 to 21 January 2010) with a percentage sales of 38.96%,[4] 25.19%[5] and 55.72%[6] respectively. It peaked at number one continuously for 10 weeks on all 3 charts and charted on the Mandarin and Combo Charts for 16 weeks and Five Music Chart for 17 weeks.
