N-Trance's second full-length album Happy Hour finds the group crafting more sample-friendly, hip-hop-tinged dance-pop. The album includes international hit singles like "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?" based on the Rod Stewart hit of the same name and "Paradise City" which borrows the riff from the Guns N' Roses original. Crystalline synth-pop ballads like "Tears in the Rain" and dance numbers like "D.I.S.C.O." are also included, along with two of N-Trance's earliest hits, "Stayin Alive," and "Set You Free." Happy Hour is a fine collection of N-Trance's slick, expertly crafted Euro-dance-pop.
