Album Review

Slowly gaining the sort of mass pop recognition that might cement her place as a true diva, Amber's third LP sees the German singer delivering the kind of stock 21st century dancefloor material that club patrons crave. "Yes!," the first single taken from the album, unknowingly follows Kate Bush's use of James Joyce's Ulysses for a portion of the song's lyrics. While Bush's interpretation of the text is decidedly more erotic, Amber's track is undeniably infectious and features all the standard club elements of the day: massive drums, sweeping synthesizer flourishes, and the necessary dynamic shifts and vocal edits that eventually propelled the tune to the top of the Billboard dance chart. But with Chris Cox of the hugely successful Thunderpuss dance remix team on hand for production purposes, the album's stellar club aesthetics were almost a certainty. The follow-up single, "The Need to Be Naked," was equally successful. But despite having well-crafted sound throughout, Amber's lyrical material deprives most of the tracks here of any real longevity outside of their genre. Lines such as "Take off my pants, my shirt, my socks, and my shoes" may have significant resonance during clubland's wee hours, but elsewhere they only serve to denude a track of anything but the sort of inane sensuality that modern dance fare still thrives upon.

Customer Reviews

Poetic and meaningful, not X-rated and trashy

I find it pretty amusing that some of these reviewers are calling her a perv just because the contents of her CD have sexual themes in their titles, even though there's a deeper meaning behind it if you listen carefully. I mean really, if it was some guy on there talking about his naked women, no one would give him a hard time, but because a woman talks about sex, that means she's perversed. Anywayz, this is another favorite Amber CD of mine...though definitely not as spiritual and lyrically meaningful as her songs on her My Kind of World album. Yes I admit, some of her lyrics on Naked do need a little help, but some are also poetic in nature. Fave tracks are Yes, Dirty Thoughts, Love On You, Heavenly Proximity, Don't Say Goodbye, and I love the Afterlife Chillout Remix of Sexual- my favorite remix of that song by far. Amber (Marie-Claire Cremers) is a developed singer/songwriter and a true artist. She's had a decade of hits to her name, not many other artists can say that. So, she's very credible, give her a chance, and stop with that hating!

Emotionally Naked

On "Naked" Amber grows as both a singer and a songwriter. After establishing herself with albums of infectious dance music that stuck to common pop-music themes (love and partying) she branches out here with songs which focus on the connections people make, both physical and emotional. Sexuality is definitely a major part of this CD's content but it is dealt with in a forthright manner, this is hardly the musical equivalent of a Cinemax late-night movie. Sometimes the lyrics are a bit simplistic - such as resorting to the "Men Are From Mars" comparisons of John Gray but fortunately James Joyce is another source of inspiration on "Yes". There is nothing earth shattering here, either musically or lyrically but Amber definitely deserves credit for making an album of dance music that doesn't insult the listener.
