When I first heard Shueh-li Ong’s version of the Michael Jackson song Thriller, I had to listen to it several times because the instrumentation was so diverse and striking, I could not get enough. I admit that my personal musical favorite is dancehall and reggae as well as hip hop, so the experience of her music was quite different.

Overall, I am impressed with the musicality of Shueh-li’s music and the production value is out of this world. The nuances of her composition drew me in and I heard something new and magical during each listen.

When one thinks of the care and detail Michael Jackson put into his music and concert performance, any music critic will have a great appreciation for Shueh-li and her meticulous nature in creating and presenting music.

It is refreshing to experience such magic translated into popular music or vice versa!  Shueh-li is definitely now on my radar.
