David Hasselhoff on Acid

David Hasselhoff on Acid flirts with the possibility of having too much going on, with a genre-splicing jamtastic funk that is only one of such diverse elements as heavy-metal double-kick drums, guitars that sound as if they were recorded underwater, and a slap bass that’ll knock the taste of Red Hot Chili Peppers right out of your mouth. After ominously pitch-shifted voices on the introductory track, “He Was Lying to Me,” Feast treats with a panoply of sounds. It comes perilously close, at times, to too many ingredients, but by the time the closing number, “When the Sky Swallows Her Children,” is allowed to reach the pinnacle of its prog-funk grandiosity, the listener has truly been swept into what can only be described as a journey.
