Living the Good Life

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Robert L. Doerschuk
On his sophomore album, Hayden solidifies his reputation as an artist of significant ability and, just as important, integrity.

The instrumentation is consistent with this lyrical orientation with fiddles, lap steel, and Dobro used tastefully and effectively; only "Son of a Rolling Stone" allows a gritty, rock-inflected guitar solo, and that one blows by pretty fast....

These elements perfectly complement Hayden's dusty twang; without giving the impression that he is trying to be something other than what he is, the young singer knows how to bring life to homespun words and well-crafted melodies, as he does without fail on each of these tracks.
