The Best CD of Her Career
on 20 November 2004
The Best CD of Her Career!
Pop/Rock Recording Artist Amber, who has scored eight #1 Billboard Hits in her Career, including "If You Could Read My Mind" and "Sexual", is back! And she does not disappoint! "My Kind of World" marks the beginning of a new stage in Amber's career. Like Janet Jackson before her, Amber has taken complete creative "Control" on this new project and the result is a Commercial and Artistic Triumph that propels the Artist into the A List company of Sting, Seal, and Annie Lennox!
The first Single "You Move Me" is currently #1 on America's most popular Satellite Radio Station "XM Radio" and is her 10th consecutive Top Ten Hit on the Billboard Chart. The track's CD Maxi Single (available in her Boutique at [...] along with a Full Length Remix CD "UnDanced") is one of the Top 50 selling Singles in the United States.
Still, Amber and this new CD are perhaps the Music Industry's best kept secrets. But not for long. The Artist is a fantastic songwriter and the new CD is packed with tracks that are destined to become the biggest Hits of her career! The track "Sacrificial Lamb" is a wholely original take on the familiar "Declaration of Independence" theme made popular by Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive", Whitney Houston's "It's Not Right, But It's OK", and Deborah Cox's "Mr. Lonely". The Pat Benatar-esque "Just Like That" is a perfect Pop Tune that, in a perfect World, would propel the Artist back into the Grammy Spotlight for Songwriting (Cher's remake of Amber's "Love One Another" was nominated in 2004). "City of Pain" is an Eighties influenced production with a Killer Hook: "That's How I Miss You; That's How I Want You; Since You're Out of the Door; That's How I Need You; It's Like a Rainbow Painted Black on the Floor". "Private War" is a Single-Worthy track that visits the same territory as Pink's "Family Portrait" - the pain caused by disfunctional relationships.
In a time when music is increasing "disposable" - made and sold as though it is "fast food" - this CD is a keeper. It gets better and better with multiple listens and it will sound as fresh and original 5 Years from now as it does today. The CD is selling briskly and will "catch fire" as the Singles keep coming.
****One of the Top 5 CD's of 2004. HIGHLY Recommended.****
