HIXTAPE, Vol. 1 Tracklist:
Great mix of songs and artists on this record. Feel like Hardy is underrated as a writer and singer! First album in a long time, from any country artist, where I listen to the whole thing and don’t have to jump around to hit the good songs. Good stuff...
While I’m not typically a fan of pop country, Hardy does it in a way that makes it both meaningful lyrically, and just fun to listen to. The man just has a way with words. Hardy has a bright future ahead of him. Songs I liked the most were “My Kinda Livin” and “One Beer”.
Hardy is an amazing songwriter....but once again, another producers wants to achive that "wall of sound" and then compress the crpa out of it to help radio stations win the loudness war. There are few great songs but by the time to get to cut four, my ears are burned out with sameness and extreme compression. Too bad.
