Clayton Bellamy Band Clayton Bellamy Band
Published Mar 01, 2002I cant say that Clayton Bellamy Bands self-titled release is my glass of homebrew. Despite the outlaw image, Clayton Bellamy Band is rather mainstream Southern rock-ish country with a radio friendly attitude. Thats not to say this is dreadful, or without merit, it just doesnt stand out. The opening track, "Long Way To Houston, is pleasant enough and "Devils Charm is reminiscent of Charlie Daniels similar ode. All the bases are covered but Clayton and the boys have yet to hit a home run. The Alberta foursomes cover of Steve Earles "I Love You Too Much will get folks dancing, but will they remember the band the morning after? The lyrics dont ask for much either. The Clayton Bellamy Band work hard and it shows; what theyre working at, however, remains to be seen.
