"Liberalodium" is by the Mississippi-based group 'Bout Right. As the name implies, this interesting and provocative music is unabashedly conservative politically, delivered with a wry sense of humor, heart-felt honesty, and engaging musicality (think a kind of 'White Album' of conservative politics). Released in 2008, before the presidential election, some tracks, such as 'It's All Over,' sound strangely prophetic regarding Supreme Court picks, etc., from the present administration. Republicans are not unscathed by the acid-wash, veneer-stripping lyrics of songwriting team W. R. Edgar and Terry Germany, asking point-blank, "Why don't you stand up, and grow yourself a pair?", a poignant comment on years of inaction and capitulation to congressional leftists. Without being overly mean, nasty, or superfluous, 'Bout Right takes a musical stand against socialistic plots, far-left factions, and political stupidity, and in the process makes some really fine music. 'Bout Right is a Type-A personality duo with wide-ranging inspirations and influences. Their roots are sunk cold-water-well deep in the rolling Mississippi soil, endowed by the rhythm of passing trains, with a mixture of diesel fuel and honeysuckle wafting in the atmosphere. Their music is honest, earthy, a blending of the bluesy night air, country garden greens, and big ears that only come from an immersion into other, less-traveled musical waters. The song-writing duo of W. R. Edgar and Terry Germany started early in high school years, but was put on hold for a time while Edgar was away taking a Master's degree in Music Performance. During this time Germany took to the bar (that is, he earned a law degree). Providence has allowed a rejoining of talents, and they have produced music that has been called everything from 'nice' to 'insane'.
