  1. I think these questions hold true for Chinese musicians looking to break into the international scene – otherwise Chinese punters seem so completely undiscerning that you could re-release any Western Euro-pop album and put Chinese faces on the outside and it would be deemed fantastic by the locals. China’s music scene (at least in Guangdong province) is just depressing.
