Coffee or Tea
Our hero was apparently tired from the public image overload, needed a little rest with a cup of Coffee or Tea. Liberation is symbolized by a white pigeon on the cover. One of the best albums including the package design.

This is one of the best albums of my hero Andy Lau. Everything is impressive. The track 9 "Marlon Brando" is his rare aggressive style rock, composed by Paul Wong of Beyond, he is the husband of Athena Chu. I love this song. Andy also does Rap in certain songs.
Especially, track 7《影帝無用》is significant. The lyrics is written by Andy himself. The meaning of the title is "No need Emperor of Cinema". "Emperor of Cinema" is naturally an alias of Andy.
從來沒有空 去享受美麗身 邊的一切
"I ask myself. Do I desire myself closer to the emperor? Marvellous lines in every film, I recognize my heart losing the resistance. It withered at last. How I tell everyone my everything outside the cinema… Never be empty. Go to enjoy the gorgeousness, everything around. People are waiting for a guy who has no scruples to dedicate whole his life to the show business."

Andy asks to Andy
I love the package. The warm colour, simple and human design. This design is also one of the best among his albums. It includes an expressive poster.
When I assume that "Coffee" represents US, and "Tea" represents UK influenced Hong Kong, this picture will have another meaning. Hollywood or Hong Kong… my thought is going too far.
Nevertheless, there is no wonder Hollywood wants Andy Lau. It’s possible that there were certain offers. The result, we know well. I respect Andy, the most.
About the disc
This album wasn’t released in Japan. I bought a used disc from Amazon. The disc was sent from UK, but it arrived extremely fast. The outer box is damaged, so the price was very low. Nevertheless, the condition of the disc is great. I strongly appreciate the ex-user. Japanese never put such a generous price, it was really a valuable buy!
