Truckload of Lovin' [Charly/Utopia] Review

by Andrew Hamilton

King's formidable talents are rendered impotent on this one. R&B producers Tony Silvester and Bert DeCoteaux prove an unequivocally bad match for King, drowning his barnburning guitar licks and gutwrenching vocals in a sea of strings and backup vocals. Things really go south with "Hold Hands With One Another," which is mind-bogglingly corny. In fact, the only worthy songs here are the title track and "Sensation." A failed attempt at commercialism that didn't satisfy old fans, or woo many new ones.
