As the title of this review reveals, my favourite track from amongst this cavalcade of wonders is the quite frankly resplendent 'Hot Shot City'. A modern classic, which boasts not only a fantastic hook and hypnotic lyrical depth but also some incredible spoken word moments, 'baby you look so good in those jeans, oh' being a stand out.
But don't let the perfection that is Hot Shot City distract you from the feast of musical genius that is on offer here. There is much to recommend.
I can't stress enough, that this album should be listened to in order, in a dark room, with full concentration and dedication given. It is the only way you will get the best out of it.
For you see, with this offering Hasselhoff takes us on a veritable rollercoaster ride of emotion and experience.
He starts us off with the classic rock tones of 'Highway to Your Heart' a song which invites us into the world of the man who sings it. In the opening moments we hear him stride toward his motorcycle and rev it up. It is then that we realise, this is a lone wolf, a man who lives his life on the road. A man with rock and roll in his soul.
After rocking out, Hoff then moves us through many emotional states in quick succession. Be prepared for this. You may weep.
Dance Dance D'Amour - Love
Everybody Sunshine - Joy
Do the Limbo Dance - LIMBO
These Lovin Eyes - Desire
Lonely is the Night - DESPAIR!
Looking for Freedom - Rebelliousness
I Believe - Baywatch
The Best is Yet to Come - Hope
Je T'aime - Love again (but in French)
Yesterday's Love - Lost love
Flying on the Wings of Tenderness - Idealism - 'we'll build a castle out of honesty' - what a lyric!
Crazy for You - Lust
And the last two, which are all in foreign, so the sentiment cannot be understood.
Take a week off work and immerse yourself in this album.
You will be a better person for it.
