Hampsterdance Hits

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Displaying a refreshing honesty that other artists should probably follow, Hampton the Hampster's Hampsterdance Hits is the rare greatest-hits collection that knows when to quit. With just six songs to its name -- three of which are different versions of "The Hampsterdance Song" -- Hampsterdance Hits keeps it short and simple, reflecting the attention spans of Hampton's fans as well as the fact that the Hampsters' music works best in small doses. The three tracks that aren't "The Hampsterdance Song" work almost as well as Hampton's big hit: "Thank God I'm a Country Boy" carries on the Chipmunks-meets-Rednex vibe of "The Hampsterdance Song"; the Hampsters' version of ...

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Displaying a refreshing honesty that other artists should probably follow, Hampton the Hampster's Hampsterdance Hits is the rare greatest-hits collection that knows when to quit. With just six songs to its name -- three of which are different versions of "The Hampsterdance Song" -- Hampsterdance Hits keeps it short and simple, reflecting the attention spans of Hampton's fans as well as the fact that the Hampsters' music works best in small doses. The three tracks that aren't "The Hampsterdance Song" work almost as well as Hampton's big hit: "Thank God I'm a Country Boy" carries on the Chipmunks-meets-Rednex vibe of "The Hampsterdance Song"; the Hampsters' version of "Dance to the Music" is equally funny and faithful to Sly & the Family Stone's original; and while "Hampster Dance" has the dubious distinction of being the least distinctive song on the album, it does name check the rest of the Hampsters Hado, Dixie, and Fuzzy in Hampton's band. And as for "The Hampsterdance Song" itself, it's here in all its helium-voiced glory, beginning with the original version and closing the album with two remixes, "The Hampsterdance Song Extended Mix" and "The Hampsterdance Song Club Mix" both of which could be heard as witty comments on dance remixes by people a little older than Hampton's intended audience. Hampsterdance Hits also includes two multimedia tracks: videos for "Thank God I'm a Country Boy" and, of course, "The Hampsterdance Song."
