The Beijing born singer has become a massive star throughout Chinese speaking Asia, especially Hong Kong and Taiwan as well as Japan and has a following in the west too. She sings rock and pop, influenced by the Cranberries and the Cocteau Twins, has sold millions of records, and still holds onto her credibility and popularity in the fickle pop world, perhaps because she hides from media attention. She is also an actress, with an acclaimed role in Wong Kar-Wai's Chungking Express, and sung the theme tune to Zhang Yimou's film, Hero. This is possibly her best album, released in 1994. Includes a cover of the Cranberries which became a big hit.
