"A lot of Amber fans seem to like the newer album (Amber) better than the older album (This Is Your Night). I think maybe they just listened to the older one so many times that they wore it out in their minds and needed something new to feed the need. I don't have that problem. Having just fallen out of the sky about 2 years ago I'm hearing 90's pop all at once for the first time, sort of. And I like this one the best. It is happier, more upbeat, more fun to move to than the second one. Simpler, yeah, and maybe not as romantic in a way. But it's great to dance or work-out to. My usual album playlist only has 2 or 3 songs on it. My playlist for this album reads: 2,1,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,12, You get the picture! I believe some of these songs were done earlier by Real McCoy, maybe also Expose' - Amber's are better. I don't want to knock those artists though. "Automatic Lover" for example is worth the price of the whole Real McCoy album all by itself."
NOT Another Dance Album.

"I know what you're thinking-Another album with one song I know and like and ti hell with the rest of the songs because they probably suck. Am I right in thinking this? Well you're wrong. "This Is Your Night" is an all around great album and is an excellent party starter. While everyone knows the title track the rest of the songs are quite different. Unlike most dance/pop albums the songs are very different in their own right. While most of the songs are more of a pop infused dance beat you can tell that other genres of music also play a factor. For instance "One More Night" has a bit of R&B mixed into the song, while "Colour Of Love" is an all out dance track that can get anyone (yes, you too grandma) moving. "This Is The Right Time" sounds like a classic dance song that takes you back in time. "Can You Feel The Love" is an awesome dance song that you can never get enough of and the song "Let It Rain" is more of a ballad than anything else. Behind these delightful sounds are the Berman Brothers who worked with and hit it big with Real MCcoy before Amber and many of the songs are extremely reminescent of the sound that Real MCcoy created. In fact the song "Hold My Body Tight" sounds so much like Real MCcoy's song "Another Night" you'd swear it was a remix to "Another Night". Amber (born Marie-Claire Cremers) is the voice behind all of the songs and has an absolutely beatiful voice. She shows great versatality singing from one style of music to the next. All in all this is a great album and I suggest you go out and get it."
Eurodance diva Amber sizzles the dancefloor with smash hits!

"Here you have it! A fantastic album exploding with some of the hottest Euro-Dance tracks of the 1990's! The Netherland-born, German-based dance diva entered the U.S. with the the club hit "This Is Your Night" soaring to number one in 14 U.S. cities and still being played in various clubs even today! The song is extremely catchy and will get you on the floor in a heartbeat! Marie-Claire also released two other hit singles, the deeply passionate and romantic slow jam, "One More Night'" which later spawned into the number-ultimate club anthem and the danceable, Euro-Pop gem, "Colour Of Love". "This Is Your Night" runs the gamet from the turbo-charged dance tracks of "This Is Your Night", "Move Your Body", "Colour Of Love" "Push It To The Limit", "Being With You" "Hold My Body Tight" and "Can You Feel The Love" to the hip R&B grooves of "You Are The One" and "Losing Myself In Your Love" to the slow, melodic "Let It Rain." If you love dance music and are familiar with other reigning dance artists like Germany's Real McCoy, LaBouche, and Culture Beat, and the ever-popular Dutch group 2 Unlimited, you will devour this set of fresh, smashing tracks! This album is pure energy and will get your blood pumping from the beginning to the end. This is my favourite album of all time and I listen to it everyday always being refreshed and rejuvenated by this set of tracks. Amber has a pretty voice and her lyrics beautifully flow with the beat and rhythm. Trust me, you love this cd as much as you love life itself!"
Amber's got soul, but this is kinda poppy!

"OK, Amber is probably the best dance diva out there today! I mean, she goes under Donna Summer as the queen of dance- that's how great she is! And it was one little song- the Hani dance mix of "One More Night" that made me fall in love with this Dutch vocalist. Amber's debut album, THIS IS YOUR NIGHT, is more pop than it is dance. "This Is Your Night", Amber's huge Top 40 hit, is extremly catchy and proves to be one of the most popular dance songs of the 90s. "One More Night" is the perfect slow jam. "Colour of Love" is a great Euro-dance song. "Hold My Body Tight", "Being With You", "This Is the Right Time", "Move Your Body", although they are all dance tunes with pop flare and simple, naive lyrics, add to the wonderful party flavor of this album. Overall, not the most artistic cd ever, but a great collection of dance-pop tunes from a smashing singer!"
The Best Dance Album Ever!!!!

"I first got wind of this CD durring my freshman year of high school. To this day it remains my fav album in my endless music library. I'm the sort of guy who loves music with loads of guitars. This album does have that, however it is hiden very well benieth the over sampled pop melody and Ambers' sultry vocals. For me personally it's a great CD for anyone who wants to turn down his/her blinds and dance aroud their room like ideots. Also, it does have those overly romantic ballads that I am a sucker for. Sample lyric from "One More Night" One more night this time/I hold your hold your body very close to mine. Other choice cuts include the overly sexed up ballad "Let It Rain", and the dancy title track "this is Your Night". In sum if you want a great CD to totally dance out to or get intimately close to that special someone, this album is for you."
