Without reading the reviews I seem to recall people thinking Hot Shot City was a particularly good track ;)

Oh yes! Hot shot City is David`s Tom Sawyer.

I found this review both poignant and concise;

I suppose this could be called a fusion album. As David demonstrates a perfect example of the German sense for melody and delicate phrasing while blending them with American, early 80's, big haired, tight trousered RRRock.
I love this album and play it at least 10 times a day, every day throughout what has been a very difficult time for me. My family and then my pets have left me, my neighbours curse at me in the street and birds no longer land in my garden.
But through it all I just keep on playing the Hoff.
Play this album once and you will never buy another one again.

Is that a compliment?

Who decided "The Hoff" was cool?
Irony is shit sometimes.
The lenses inside of me that paint the world black. The pools of poison, the scarlet mist, that spill over into rage.

Irony can be wonderful, if you can recognise it as such.

I can thanks. But sometimes it's overplayed and gets boring as in this case.

That's just MY OPINION by the way. I need to clarify that. ::)
