Return to Music Page Erin Hamilton - One World

Starting off with the strong "The Temple" (See review) which is the latest single off of this recently released album by Erin Hamilton, "One World" show us that Dance Artists can put together one hell of an album. Its very clear that Ms Hamilton's true passion is singing and that passion shines throughout this album.

NAJM Dance Culture dot_clear.gif (43 bytes)The second track on the album is the very bouncy yet catchy "Take Me As I Am." "Dream Weaver" (from the movie Trick) is next and has been reworked with some new splash. "Sweet Angel" is a smooth clubby tune that has a very cute ending. Track 5 "Satisfied" is a sassy smooth house number that has much club potential (and a little TP2K inspired mixing in the middle). "Melt" is an odd Euro sounding number with strange harmonies, but Erin pulls it off well.

Her cover of "The Flame" is reminiscent of "Dream Weaver" and is one of the songs that she performed at "Backstreet" in Atlanta during the Billboard DMS 99 in July.

Produced by Scott Anderson with Brett Henrichsen acting as the executive producer, it is quite refreshing to hear such talents coming together to create a very enjoyable listing experience.
