Conceptual Aspect[edit]

This album, like her last debut album, is also produced by producer Fung Geng Fei. The image of Sandy is still a Japanese idol. Of course, this image was not accepted well by the audience and critics. The main difference about Sandy's image is her looks. She is a rebellious Japanese teenager in this album as opposed to a childish girl. Overall, this album is almost identical to her last debut album in terms of conceptual aspect.

Commercial Aspect[edit]

Surprisingly, this album eventually performed the feat of going platinum(50,000 units) in the summer of 1986. Singles included "Anger" and "Am I your love tomorrow?", while "Heartbreak Alley" and "Corner of the Street" received some airplay. First single "Anger" also reached #1 on the RTHK charts for one week.

Musical Aspect[edit]

Similar to the concept itself, lyrically and instrumentally, is also the typical Japanese idol image. The production team is the same as her last album. 6 out of 10 songs are cover of Japanese songs.
