This review is from: My Kind Of World [Us Import] (Audio CD)
From the first haunting note of CRUCIFIED SOLITUDE to the final fading heart-beat of DON'T FOLLOW ME HOME, you'll be trapped in the orbit of Amber's MY KIND OF WORLD. As the title suggests, Amber is finally free -- venturing out on her own independent label, and producing the kind of music she's always wanted, with an album that will surprise and thrill her long time fans, as well as those who've just discovered this musical gem. With a string of 10 top ten hits under her belt, including Sexual, Above the Clouds, and Yes, among others, Amber has proven herself to be a musical force, consistently producing chart toppers with substance.
On this latest effort, and her fourth album in 8 years, Amber proves she's much more than a dance artist, taking us with her on an emotional and heartfelt journey that is often darker, more mystical, and more revealing than anything we've heard from her so far. Teaming up with long time collaborator and current producer Wolfram Dettki, Amber reveals the emotion, power, and wisdom that come from truly living, feeling, and being. The result is a complex and enchanting album with provocative lyrics and a sound that defies easy categorization. With just one listen, you'll be under Amber's spell.
Powerful ballads like PRIVATE WAR, YOUR KIND OF WORLD, as well as the groovier SAME OLD PARADISE and the funky, honky-tonk infused WHEN A LOVE GROWS COLD are punctuated by uplifting pieces like YOU MOVE ME (already a Billboard Dance Chart's top 5 hit), a charming JUST LIKE THAT (instantly radio-ready), as well as the gritty and in-your-face SACRIFICIAL LAMB, and the eerie yet mesmerizing VOODOO that draws you in slowly and builds to a pulsating chorus -- any one of which, with just a little radio play, could catapult this CD to a mainstream hit, and Amber to greater and well-deserved recognition as a songwriter, singer, artist, and performer. In a day where vapid mannequins are "pop stars" and inane, uninspired songs too often become "hits," Amber's "kind of world" is one I'd much prefer to live in.
