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.

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!!

'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".

I am not exaggerating one bit when I say that this record is one of the best rock albums ever made. I kid you not when I say that when this record came out in '91 or '92 I listened to it almost every night. I was in college and every night when I got home from class and was getting ready to go out to party Dan Baird was cranking in the CD player before I ever figured out what I was going to wear. I still listen to it now and it has definitely stood the test of time. This album doesn't pretend to be anything it's not. It's just a bunch of guys having a great time and blowing through a set of great rock tunes one after the other seemingly without stopping. The first half is very fast-paced with all of the songs strung together as if they just played and played. There doesn't seem to be any studio trickory either. The production is perfect in its lack of production if that makes sense. Baird is a fantastic guitar player with a great voice and definitely a way with a lyric, "You got knocked up and I got locked up. I guess you'd say that we both got screwed." Brilliant! Highlight tracks for me are "look at what you started", "seriously Gone", "What I am" and the classic "I Love You Period." If you already own "Buffalo Nickel" don't expect the same sound on this record. Though BN was a great record as well it seemed to be more carefully planned out than this one. Maybe Dan thought he needed to be more serious the second time around - I don't know. Either way if you like the southern rock sound and you like your music turned up loud and played almost as if it was a jam session then grab this cd now.
