Hawk opens this CD with its lustful title track. On it, sexuality
is equated with rock music. And David Hawkins doesn't beat
around the bush, pun intended, when he tells his desirable object
that he'll soon "be between your thighs." Later, the chorus
simply states, "You are so rock n roll." Obviously, Hawkins
is not the type to write in mystic metaphors or witty pickup lines.
Why waste time with words when "we can make it right here,"
as he blurts out at one point? His words are backed by an unhurried
Stones' guitar groove, which suggests impending copulation.
Yep, this one's so rock n roll.
Unfortunately, the rest of this disc doesn't live up to the opener's
initial promise. Nevertheless, it consistently sticks to the oldest
story in rock music: scoring chicks. There are songs with girl's names,
such as "Suzie China" and "Janey". There's even
one titled "Rock Star Thing", which is self-explanatory.
It's a CD of boy-wants-girl, boy-(hopefully)-gets-girl, boy-gets-inside-girl.
It's crude, yet simple.
The CD cover is a close-up picture of a girl's lips. The lipstick
is heavy, the expression inviting. It's about as subtle as one of
those "Live Nude Girls" signs at the local strip club. In
other words, if you don't realize Hawk is all about hawking sex, you're
probably pretty dense. So if you're a horny young dude who wears a
faded AC/DC shirt most days -- whether it's clean or not --
this music will be a little bit of heaven. But if you're a sweet,
young, innocent girl, you better read between the lines for the "Live
Nude Girls" sign on the CD cover.
