5.0 out of 5 stars Rowdy, Rockin' and Really loud!...... August 26, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I first bought this album because of the catchy tune, "I love you period." I thought it an ok tune, so i bought the cd. I listened to it from the first and its like a pulse-beating-page-turning-book you cant put down. There is not a bad song on this album. I was was forced to chose my least favorite, it would be "I love you period." For the ultimate "LOUD" song crank up "Lost Highway". A great in your face tune relationship song with a twist. Its not about losing your lover, but about the jilted one proclaiming his soon to be freedom with the line, "if you dont think im leaving baby, count the days that im gone!" Obviously one of my favorites on the cd. And "Knocked up" is a great tune. I love the play on words. "Look at what you started", another rockin song to be cranked loud. "Pick up the knive," and "The one i am,". This is, indeed a seriously underestimated album/cd. I purchased cd only after i realized my cassette was becoming worn out. In the styles of the great southern artists, Bocephus, Skynyrd, Charlie Daniels, and others, this is a definate must have album for any party. It will definately get the crowd dancing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock 'n' roll heaven May 20, 2012
Format:Audio CD
'Love Songs for the Hearing Impaired' is the greatest straightahead rock 'n' roll record of the 1990s.

Dan Baird has absorbed his foot-stomping, hip-swiveling influences so thoroughly that he makes it look effortless. As much as I respect bands like the Black Crowes, they give the impression of having studied 'Exile on Main St' at grad school; Dan Baird delivers the 'Exile' vibe like he invented it. And while he loosely belongs to the tradition of southern rock, he brings some entirely new qualities to that po-faced genre: wit, intelligence and humour.

Not only do these songs rock, they're clever with it. "The former Georgia Satellites frontman commands attention like a smart bar-stool bard," Rolling Stone magazine noted at the time, spinning "ribald white-trash tales familiar to Chuck Berry-inspired boogie". As another reviewer has it, these are "songs about not-too-bright people in tricky, but not-too-tricky situations".

Take Julie and Lucky, a young couple from the township of Wasteyourtime, Kentucky, who commandeer a pick-up, relieve a liquor store of its ready cash, remove themselves with dispatch from the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and, after some jail time, raise a happy family out in Colorado. Then there's 'I Love You Period', a song about a schoolboy who writes a love letter to his pulchritudinous teacher, only to get it back corrected for punctuation. Or what about 'Knocked Up', in which the small-town narrator carelessly impregnates a young woman who happens to the daughter of the preacher, the niece of the town sheriff, and the granddaughter of the county judge. "You got knocked up," our hero sings, "and I got locked up: I guess you'd say that we both got screwed".

5.0 out of 5 stars Insane groove! December 9, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album as soon as it was released, being a Satellites fan and all, and just fell in love with it. Like many others here say, this album doesn't try to be anything else than a full tilt rockin' good time. Plenty of cool songs, brilliantly funny lyrics and THE SOUND!! Can a rock album sound better than this? Man, listening to this makes me feel like I'm three feet away from a Marshal 4x12 blasting away.

One more thing I'd like to emphasize is the playing on the album - don't get fooled by the three cord structure of most of these songs, Dan and producer Brendan O'Brien are jammin' up a storm, backed by some seriously grooving bass and drums! And thanks to the excellent production, you can really enjoy all the guitar textures - this is top notch rock/country playing!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Dixie July 8, 2005
Format:Audio CD
It's funny, I have been reading about this album in record guides lately and discovered I Love You Period was a minor radio hit at the time. I don't remember that at all. I do remember really liking this album when it was released although I focused on one great song that none of the reviewers really comment on: Dixie Beauxderaunt.

Dixie Beauxderaunt is really rocking and Dan Baird tells a hilarious story in it. I have put this one song on dozens of mix tapes over the years that I made for friends. I'll have to go back and rediscover the rest of this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Time June 7, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This is, ex-Georgia Satellite front man, Dan Baird's first solo attempt. He succeeds very well at it too. His country/rock songs are well-written, foot-taping fun. Baird's strength is in his lyrics. Although the music has good rhythm, it is nothing that really stands out. The music is really the medium in which Baird gets his lyrics across.
He writes from a light-hearted standpoint as can be determined from the title of the album. This is a great sing-along album, as the words are catchy and simple. It's obvious that Baird had fun making this album, and you can hear it come across in his music. Baird's "I Love You Period" is probably the most famous from this album, but there are quite a few gems in here as well. Other winners are "Pick Up the Knife", "The One I Am", and the crass "Knocked Up".
"Love Songs for the Hearing Impaired" is great to pop in the cd player of your car, put the top down (or at least the windows), and take a drive along a winding two-lane country highway. It's not a work of art, but it's good enough you won't even notice.

I am making the ones who are left (altho I hope to be the last one) play "Lost Highway" and "Seriously Gone" at my funeral. LOUD. Dig it, heed it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost worth it for one song
I love you period is great, the rest is okay. His work with the Georgia Satellites is better overall but this is along those lines.

This is one of the best 1990's albums I know. It's probably even Dan Baird's best work, including the Georgia Satellites stuff.
