AMK released 2 cassettes and 9 CDs: (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) (10) (11) *雜感 I Mixed Mind I 1990 (compilation) *雜感 II Mixed Mind II 1991 (compilation) Ma-li-ma-li-hung 1992 (compilation) Love EP 1992 **Noise and The Melodies 1993 (compilation) EP Boxset 1993 翻版 EP Unauthorized Copy EP 1994 請讓我回家 Please Let Me Home 1995 What's Sound 1995 (compilation) ***天空小說 Tian Kong Xiao Shuo Original sound track 1995 (compilation) 勁歌金曲大雀局 Hit Songs, Ma Jog 1996
