Yuna’s debut album, Decorate was one of the better local albums released last year (she has released an EP before this, containing the ever so popular hit song, Dan Sebenarnya). If you missed out on the album launch held at KL PAC last year (which was a full house affair), fret not, we have covered it and you can read it here http://www.lifeinkl.com/2010/08/13/yuna-decorate-album-launch/. There’s 10 tracks on the album, of which consists of a healthy mix of both English and Bahasa Malaysia songs. Speaking of which, the English and BM songs somehow feel like they alternate between each other on the album.
The album starts with Gadis Semasa, which gives you a glimpse of her vocal prowess. One thing I like about this song is the noticeable build up of pace and mood in the song which is very well arranged. The second track, These Streets has an interesting atmosphere to it, suiting its lyrics. The superb song composition shows again in Penakut, with a very, very good build up to the climax of the song, which, interestingly is 2/3rds into the song.
