Dan Baird was the lead singer and a guitarist for Southern Rock band the Georgia Satellites, perhaps most famous for their hit single "Keep Your Hands To Yourself". He founded the band in the early 80's, but decided to leave the group in the early 90's to begin a solo career. Love Songs for the Hearing Impaired is his first, and most successful, solo album.

Baird's solo work bears a great similarity to his previous work. His music is largely derived from Southern Rock, with influences of punk, country and even cowboy evident. Add evidenced by the title, he injects humor into much of his work, a welcome addition. His songs are very rythmic, danceable and just fun. He isn't going to change the world with his music, he just wants the listeners to have fun.

The biggest single is "I Love You Period", about a love letter to a teacher that came back with grammatical corrections. This is just a real fun tune, a toe tapper with some great guitars, and some very humorous lyrics. It charted at number twenty six in 1993, probably lower than it deserved.

The rest of the album basically follows suit; if you didn't like the single, you won't enjoy the rest. Nothing else really is as catchy as I Love You Period, which hurts the album. One standout is nice, but if nothing else grabs you, especially in a style like Baird plays, the audience isn't going to stick around.

And that's what this album boils down to: one really fun song, and a bunch of songs that try to be as good, but all fail. They are fine, this is a solid record to have on in the background, but it's nothing that earns a serious listen. I would recommend getting the single, then getting the Georgia Satellites self -titled album, which does to perfection what this album wants to do.
