The result of 5 years of development, the new album from UNiXX went through change of members and even lost of master recording in the early years. UNiXX’s first album Nasty Fantasy was released in 2004 to a tremendous critical acclaim and a build-up of a solid fan base. Based on the first album and their live performances, UNiXX quickly acquired a reputation as the darkest rock band in Hong Kong.
As the line up became stable, the second album is finally completed to everyone’s satisfaction. In 7 Deadly Sins, the audience is shown a even darker and more explosive UNiXX that is like an angry man unleashed. The lyrics show the band in a more critical view of the world around us. Musically, the band is like a cut-loose titan reminding us of The Smashing Pumpkins unrestrained, or The Cure with only the anger. The album progresses through emotional ups and downs in high energy alternative rock, while the title song “7 Deadly Sins” punctures the heavy mood of the songs with the most reflective tune in the album. The songs “Wasted” and “Perfect Betrayer” were previously issued nearly five years ago, but find a new breath in the new album. “Shut It”, normally the band’s opening song for a show, would certainly leave you screaming in agreement, in the most political song of the album. Notably, Alok(A Roller Control) remixed the track “Black Shadow”, off the first album, with a disco punk kick to finish 7 Deadly Sins, the most exciting album of 2010, and it’s only January.

Edmund Leung's first solo album sees him depart from the heavy and prodominently angry sound in the last ....Huh!? album "Walk In The Park". While also working on his goodmorningloria project, he released this more acoustic album, with a dedication to understanding life. The album artwork (which is reproduced in full in the download) opens with his words: "... to understand is to reach out, to be understood is to welcome those who are reaching out ...). While clearly without fast pace songs, the album has a uplifting feel, with songs like "Fly", "Don't Be Sad", and philosophical songs like "Pig In Space", having these lines: "A turtle will fly when you throw it high/A cattle will call you by your name".
The album arts is a particular treasure in this album, completely reproduced from its 5x7 inch original.
