Editorial Reviews

This Atlanta native singer/songwriter is one of the most in demand talents in the country. Pop radio listeners have no doubt heard countless songs written and/or produced by Butch. His Epic debut CD, Letters, features the first single, "Mixtape."

5.0 out of 5 stars Butch Walker Continues to Evolve... Pure Genius. August 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD
He rocked with the Marvelous 3 in the late 90s, took off solo in 2002 with "Left Of Self Centered" and is back with a vengance in 2004. Butch Walker's "Letters" is the best disc this year... and sadly many folk will never hear it unless the search high and low.

This latest effort shows off all Butch's skills. Singing, songwriting, producing, arranging, etc. His last solo effort was more an extension of M3 -- while "Letters" is a complete departure that sounds more Jeff Buckley at times than rock and roll superstar. Of course all with clever sense of humor, a ton of passion, incredible range and mad guitar skills.

1. Sunny Day Real Estate - A quick intro to set the vibe and kick the CD off.

2. Maybe It's Just Me - A classic. Was on the "Heartwork" EP released a few months back. Touching lyrics, killer recording, good use of the keys and an all around winner.

3. Mixtape - The single that will sadly go unnoticed since MTV and modern radio are looking for the next HoobaBizkitPuddleOfNickelback instead of a solid singer/songwriter. SHOULD be a hit, but won't. Appreciate this one. Classic tune - though nowhere near the CD's best.

4. #1 Summer Jam - Haven't beaten this one up enough yet. Most others here I have seen performed live or have a bootleg of. Not this tune. Can't really elaborate yet, but I like what I hear.

5. So At Last - Living in Southern California, I can appreciate where this some came from. Could be an absolute anthem to sum up a memorable time period.

6. Uncomfortably Numb - A quick little rocker and a change of pace after five laid back tunes. Cool recording of the vocals and use of the keys. A definite new wave, power pop rock tune.

7. Joan - A beautiful ballad that showcases homeboy's piano skills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Next big thing???? December 22, 2005
Format:Audio CD
You will note that I do not normally write alot of reviews. I have enjoyed BW for some time (back to Marvie 3) and finally got tyhe cance to see him live in Chicago. Even though the band was tired (end of tour shows) BW carried them throughout the night...phenominal! On to the album. I own over 4000 cd's (not bragging, just the truth) and this has to be in my top 5 ot 10 of all time. Yes, I enjoy power pop (Cheap Trick, Squier, Journey, Boston, ect) and metal and classic rock and jazz and blues and, gulp...even some country (very little). BW does what very few artist can do nowadays, it is obvious that he has similar musical taste an yet has the ability to fuse these interests into music through great songwriting, great production, and top muscicianship...mucianship...the guy can flat out play music. Many other have gone through song by song breakdowns of this album so I will not bother other than to say if you love "music" you will find something to love on this album and it will grow on you, give it a chance, you will not be dissappointed. He also has a DVD out on sony music that is incredible, check it out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Butch gets better and mellower with age August 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Just got Letters in the mail yesterday so I have only had a chance to listen to it twice. However I can say that I am very impressed with how Butch is maturing as a songwriter. The majority of the songs are laid back however there are a few rockers thrown in. The previous reviewer did a good job with the track descriptions.

I hear some Nick Drake on a few of the songs and maybe a slight 70's nod with the keys. Nothing like Kravitz though. You can tell that a lot of these songs are personal stories.

Its unfortunate that the masses will not hear this album because it is better than 99.9% of what is out there. Hopefully one of the bands he has produced will give a shout out to him (Avril???) which can generate some free pub.

In my opinion, this is the best album that I have bought in several years

5.0 out of 5 stars No one can write a song like Butch Walker. September 10, 2004
Format:Audio CD
If anyone ever needed more proof that Butch Walker is the best songwriter in music today they should RUN (not walk) to the store and buy this c.d..It is utterly amazing at how he showcases so much variety in his music,I have been a huge fan of his since the first Marvelous 3 album math and other problems,(My fav song on that album was Pizza and wine) and I also got Hey Album and Readysexgo and also his solo left of of self centered and now Letters. These albums will never leave my stereo!! Letters is an AMAZING album,It would be impossible to pic a fav song but Butch really touches emotions with the song "Joan",It just sends a chill through me.Don't move and mixed tape are great as well.I could go on and on about this album but instead Just quit reading this and go out and buy it,You won't be sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best one yet! September 16, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This cd is a must have for any Butch Walker/ Marvelous 3 fan!! "Letters" is Butch's best work yet. Every song is great. His music is very honest.When Butch sings, you believe every word he sings. His emotion is moving. This is one of my favorite cds. You will not regret buying this cd. My favorite tracks are "Mixtape", "Don't Move", "Best Thing You Never Had", and "Promise". I also recommend that you visit his website [...]

5.0 out of 5 stars BUTCH ROCKS!! September 13, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I can't say enough good things about Butch and Marvelous 3. This album is amazing but so is all the others. This one is a bit more mellow compared to any of the others, but Butch still does a outstanding job of delivering kick ass rock on a golden platter. If you get a chance to see him live, i highly recommened it, since listening to him on cd does him no justice what so ever. The vocal range on this man will knock your socks off. Plus, he delivers a kick ass stage performance that so many other bands lack these days. Butch is the ulimate rock star!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Letters - Very Good Rock
I recently got 4 older Butch Walker CDs, and Letters is the best overall CD of his. I really enjoy this one. It's a little more rock than alternative sounding.

3.0 out of 5 stars Why would anyone rate Butch Walker at 4.5 stars?
Yes, Siree! Why would anyone indeed? Needless to say I got burned again! Perhaps his fan club are the ones writing the reviews, but what happened to the law of averages? 4.5 stars? Read more
