The Livesays: Not What I Bargained For

“Two Sides” opens up with a riff that sounds like it is lifted from The Who (listen to that bassline), but turns into a catchy country rock flavored tune that conjures up Tom Petty. Lead vocalist (and band namesake) Billy Livesay has a gravelly voice that fits the music well. Three songs in, and the hooks continue, sprinkled with some tasty guitar work, organ, and piano. The formula starts to wear thin; the music is well done, but too generic to stand out from the pack. A couple of slow country tinged ballads fail to help matters, and drag the CD to a screeching halt as they plod along. These guys are most likely a fun bar band, and have a good sense of melody, but ultimately the ideas run out quickly, and the recycled and repetitive tunes don’t hold your interest beyond the first few tracks.
