Quite a different record than most of Denise's other southern blues sides – and a great little set with a warm clubby feel! The album's got arrangements by David Van DePitte, and a warm flowing dancefloor style that shows Denise as a whole new sort of singer than we might have expected from her more rootsy, more bluesy work of earlier years. The standout cut is the title cut – "I'm So Hot" – which is a really great number that slowly builds with a midtempo groove, Denise singing in a really anthemic style that she hardly matched again! But the whole album is pretty darn great too – and tracks include "Giving Up", "Tear For Tear", "May The Funk Be With You", and "Sometimes".
