Released: Jan 30 2012

Dan Sartain’s latest album; Too Tough To Live is an inspirational record
Too Tough To Live is a rock album compiled of short songs, and by short I mean songs of 1-2 minutes in length but this isn’t a bad thing – he has kept all his songs short and sweet.
Dan’s style of music has similarities with; The Clash and even Queens of the Stone Age (if your looking for some of the rhythmic guitar) and these days there doesn’t seem to be enough of this type of rock music, so this album is a very welcome edition to the music world.
The album is compiled of 13 songs, some are a bit hit and miss when it comes to diversity, but overall the majority of the tracks have a strong vibe to them. As the songs are so short there’s hardly any room for the lyrics to have any emotional meaning, but nearly every tune is contagious and will have you dancing in seconds.
The song; ‘Even At My Worst I’m Better Than You’ is one of the stand out tracks on the album, with a great rhythm guitar mainly compiled of power chords this song delivers the kind of ‘I don’t need anyone’ message that will put you instantly into a good mood!.
‘Boo Hoo Hoo’ is another great song on this album, again with a great rhythm that evokes a ‘lets do something stupid’ atmosphere, which when paired with the right situation could lead to great times. This song has the power and potential to make memories.
Because every song on this album is so short it is an easy listen and highly enjoyable. This record may lack some diversity, but it has to be said if you like the type of music that inspires reckless and fun behavior then Dan Sartain and his album Too Tough To Live is definitely for you.
