The music world’s gone hip-hop and R&B, and our local artists, long known for copping whatever style is in vogue with remarkable ease, naturally makes good effort to join in on the trend. Problem is, there’s a difference between copying with ease and copying it right—and so flukes, there are a lot of them. But Amber looks like she’s got the formula down pat. Her take on Hotdog’s “Manila” is refreshing. “Jungle” happily reminds you of J.Lo. But after a couple of listens, the album loses its charm. Take our advice, Amber: If you’re going pop, keep your songs down to three minutes.
