Song Review: Fiona Sit's "維多利亞女皇的非常秘密任務/Victorian SecretMission"

As another single from Fiona's dance oriented EP "Filicious", "維多利亞女皇的非常秘密任務", which (very) roughly translates to "Victorian Secret Mission", is an electronic and dance styled song.

At first listen, the song seems weak. Like Dear Jane's single "Let's Just Do It", the auto tuned verses ruin an otherwise good song. The song improves itself by the pre chorus, which possesses a serene and space like feel. By the time it launches into the chorus, it becomes a full on catchy dance track. Fiona looks great in her unorthodox costume, and the style of the MV fits with the feel of the song.

Overall, "Victorian Secret Mission" may not be her best song (I personally think that's a toss up between "Better Me" and "Hangnail") from her new album, but still a notable one. In an industry dominated by love ballads which can get boring, this is a fun and catchy dance song that makes you want to get up and move. And how often is a Cantopop song all of those things?
