Editorial Reviews

Though he's been a first-call songwriter and producer for artists ranging from Fall Out Boy to Weezer to Pink to Dashboard Confessional for some time, Butch Walker has never had more to write about than he does right now. In recent years he has witnessed the birth of his first child, lost his home (and recording masters) to Malibu wildfires, and turned 40. Appropriately
then, Butch's new album I Liked It Better When You Had No Heart is about beginnings, endings, and the long journey in between. The album, featuring eleven new songs co-written by Walker and his songwriting partner Michael Trent, will be released on cd and digitally on February 23, 2010.

5.0 out of 5 stars Butch who? Isn't he that banjo player? February 23, 2010
Butch Walker completely ignores the pulse of modern music and just records the songs he'd want to hear. Luckily, he has good taste.

At first I wasn't sure I liked this CD, it jumps all over the musical spectrum, but there is something completely ButchWalker about it that ties it all together. I found myself hours later humming the songs and searching for the lyrics.

On third listen, I knew these songs were forever a part of the soundtrack of my life. Thanks Butch.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great...Great Album February 23, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I have been a Butch fan for quite some time. This is a very solid and complete album. His last two efforts have seemed to have seen Butch grow up a little bit. Like some others have stated, when I listen to this album, I hear splashes of ELO, Queen, and the Steve Miller Band. Some of the standouts on this album are Days/Months/Years, Pretty Melody, She Likes Hair Bands. Do yourself a favor and pick up this album, and if you can see Butch on tour, he puts on a great show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another awesome CD froma Great Music Artist February 24, 2010
Format:Vinyl I have been awaiting the much anticipated release of this album which I pre-ordered this recent work from Butch Walker... Let me say this is probably one the best music producers/recording artist in the biz and he never disappoints. Pick up this album and support a truly great musician who never get's his just dues. This album just sounds like a good time was happening in the course of it's making and I am excited to add this to my IPOD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Butch Walker does it again February 23, 2010
By Lou
Format:MP3 Music
Butch Walker's latest is just simply awesome. The whole album is just honest to goodness rock n roll. Butch shows once again that he's an incredible song writer that can tell a story, make you smile, and shake your ass all in the span of a few tunes.

Unlike his last album 'Sycamore Meadows', this one is more band-based and it totally works. Throughout the album, you can hear musical 'shout out's' to ELO, Tom Petty, and even Queen.

My favorites are probably "Pretty Melody" (which indeed has a pretty melody which WILL get stuck in your head) and "Don't You Think Someone Should Take You Home". Both of those songs feature gorgeous string arrangements and beautifully haunting meolodies.

There aren't any real rocking tunes on this record but there aren't any weak songs either. If you're a Butch Walker fan at all, you'll definitely like it.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Liked It Better When Butch Rocked Out May 7, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I am a diehard Butch fan. I can't say I really love this release though. It is akin to Sycamore Meadows and has more of a cafe feel to it. It is lacking the old, heavy guitar riffs of the past. I understand his need for creativity and appreciate his indie style. The music still has heart and soul, that is never lacking. I just miss the balls out rocking. Butch, how about next time around you go back to your roots, at least for half the songs? I'd really love that. Thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Album Like No Other. October 10, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Butch Walker has done it again! The newest album from Butch Walker and The Black Widows - 'I Liked It Better When You Had No Heart' - has a wide varay of influences that come together and tie in so seamlessly. The album seems to be greatly influenced by good old country music, but with a bit of a modern day twist that gives each song it's own life. I guarantee that there's at least one song on this album that will latch onto you and hold on for dear life; each song has it's own hauntingly beautiful sound which can keep anyone pleased. From Trash Day, to Don't Move(acoustic) this album will have you dancing, swaying and enjoying every last moment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Butch Lite March 28, 2010
By McMike
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Another tribute to styles of music's past. Good songs, but not the cock-rock of Butch's past.

Similar to Sycamore Meadows with the 70's cheekiness of Let's-Go-Out-Tonites.

There is a in-your-face Jeff Lynn (ELO) harmony fill, and a Brian May solo that cracked me up. :thumbs up:
