Tim McGraw - “Live Like You Were Dying” MAG

By Kelsie T., Phoenix, AZ

     When someone asks who I think is a good country male vocalist, a certain name pops into my head. He has a strong voice with great power and many number-one hits. Yes, you guessed it, it’s Tim McGraw. He has outstanding CDs and has done some astonishing work, so when I got the new “Live Like You Were Dying,” I was very surprised to find it was not worth the $16 I paid for it.

When I got the CD, I was so excited to listen to it, but I was not impressed. In fact, it was awful. I had bought it for the inspiring “Live Like You Were Dying,” but the rest of the songs don’t have that McGraw kick.

Tim McGraw is such an excellent vocalist and has so many great albums I just don’t understand what went wrong. This is by far his worst album.

When you are in a store, don’t bother looking for “Live Like You Were Dying.” It’s not worth your time or money.

I didn't buy this CD, I borrowed it from someone and put it on my iPod, but I did enjoy it. I liked the title track and Do You Want Fries With That was also good. How Bad Do You Want It wasn't bad. Neither were Old Time New or Back When. Blank Sheet of Paper is one of my favorite songs. The others I didn't like as much....

My point is: Why didn't you like this album?

I enjoyed it, and I don't think that review gave it justice.
