This album is very difficult to find. This is my favourite album because all of the songs in this album are very good and the cover is very nice.
So, I think you can't miss this album.

Even orange can make things look romantic... as seen on this album's art direction... kinda prefer the cassette's cover... i could see more of shirley's hair n the cover looks even more perfect due to shirley's pose...all songs were great esp track 2,6,8,9 n 10... a very romantic album... indeed... original compositios were seen better than cover versions in the albums... both original and covers were all made perfect by Shirley... not surprisingly.

Jacket Design - I consider this cover picture as one of the best of all of Shirley's albums. There is no fancy packaging like the CD's nowadays, but the picture is a real nice one that captures the best side of her. The orange background and gold title match incredibly well.
Songs - Here are my favorites from this album:
Overall - The soft songs in this album are superb. Although she's been constantly changing her singing technique, she always possesses a unique interpretation style. By listening to her songs you can really get the "true" meaning of the lyrics. For those who missed her earlier albums, this should be the first one to purchase.
- Track 2 - Still Loving You That
Touching melody and lyrics, Shirley's interpretation totally brings the song's soul out.
- Track 4 - Listen To My Heart
A good cover version of Roxette's "Listen to my heart".
- Track 5 - Explode After One Minute
It is not one of those easy-listening slow songs. A true hard rock song. It demonstrates her willingness to sing different types of songs. Remember she mentioned this song in a radio interview several years ago. She said she was really happy to have sung this song and she was very satisfied with the outcome.
- Track 6 - Real Love in Hardship
One of the many songs written by Choi Kok Kuen (Bad translation) for Shirley, and probably the most well known one. The melody is not too outstanding, but the lyrics are definitely well written and Shirley's interpretation is wonderful.
- Track 8 - In Love With You
A nice, soft, romantic song.
- Track 9 - Love and Hate Interwined
Didn't pay too much attention to this song when first purchased this album. This is because I wasn't living in HK at that time, otherwise I would have watched the TV series "Back to the unmarried days" and loved this song right away. This song earned Shirley the 2nd Jade Solid Gold Song Award after "Happy are those in love".
- Track 10 - When There Are No Roses in the World
This song has the greatest lyrics among all others! It is also an ever-green song that everytime I listen to it I just love it more!
