Really amazing third solo disc, goes in so many new directions, feels like Butch is really getting into the swing of being a distinct artist. The last disc was more of an exclamation point where this one is more of a period. It really makes a statement, it makes you stop and listen. It made me laugh when the only mention it got on Rolling Stone was about Avril being in the "Bethanphetamine" video, those losers are so out of touch. And by the end of the disc; just like every great entertainer Butch leaves you wanting more and more and more...

Track Listing:

1. Oooh...Aah...-pretty much just that.

2. Hot Girls in Good Moods- A throw back to T-Rex and Bowie, maybe Rob Zombie should be taking notes, for fans paying attention it has an "Alecia Amnesia" vibe.

3. Ladies & Gentlemen...The Let's Go Out Tonites- This song is fantastic for two reasons 1-butch makes fun of himself (Marie who has sex for free) 2- Butch makes fun of everybody else(Wolfmother and Yeah Yeah Yeah's refrences anyone?)

4. Bethamphetamine (Pretty Pretty)- The first single, which susprised me, Avril looks like hell in the video, what is there not to like. I hear "This Year's Model" Elvis Costello undertones.

5. Too Famous To Get Fully Dressed- I love this song! Butch is exploring his continued commentary on pop culture.

6. We're All Going Down- Dark! I like this, A very different direction. It's like what an emo song written by Tom Petty would sound like.

7. Dominoes- I think this is some sort of a Ben Folds inspired tune. I know they toured together a bit. I wonder what the story is?

8. Paid To Get Excited- This is by far the most bold song that Butch has ever released. I think it pretty much sums up who he is and what he believes.

Butch Walker is not an artist that rests on his laurels. After the breakup of The Marvelous 3, he made a very good arena rock record with "Left of Self Centered." Walker followed it up with 2004's brilliant "Letters," which critics unfairly labeled an emo record, but actually was a '70s singer songwriter affair. Walker could have easily made a sequel to "Letters," but instead he takes us in another direction entirely.

To fans who loved the soothing sounds of "Letters," "The Rise and Fall of the Let's Go Out Tonites" will seem quite offputting. Walker has picked up the electric guitar again, and almost every track is bathed in crunchy riffs. Walker wears his influences on his sleeves here: "Hot Girls in Good Moods" is ripped from T. Rex, "Bethamphetimine (Pretty Pretty)" sounds like Transformer era Lou Reed. Despite cribbing from his favorite artists, it never feels like plagerism. It feels as if Walker is trying to introduce these great artists to a new generation.

Besides the glam inspired rock, Walker has written some of the best ballads of his career. "Dominoes," "We're All Going Down" and especially "This is the Sweetest Little Song" are all achingly beautiful. Unlike the ballads on "Letters," which were often bitter and heartbroken, these are lush and whistful and have an undercurrent of hope running through.

My one problem with the album is the production. The background vocals are pushed to the background and can barely be heard. However, this is a very minor issue when the songs are so good.

All in all, this record was everything I'd hoped for in a new Butch Walker record. This is one of the best releases of 2006.

It pretty much works like clockwork now a days. Every other year a new Butch Walker record. And everytime it's something completly different.

Where Butch's last solo record "Letters" was akin to the seventies singer-songwriter movement, "The Rise and Fall of Butch Walker and the Let's Go Tonites" is a pop glam record. Anf although it isn't as strong as "Letters", "The Rise and Fall" is still a helluva fun record.

"Hot Girls in a Good Mood" has a riff and arrangement that T. Rex's Marc Bolan would be proud of, all cocky arrogance and melody, not to mention one of the finest titles in a long time. "Ladies and Gentleman...The Let's Go Out Tonites" sounds more like David Bowie than anything Bowie's put out in the last ten years, where the lead off single "Bethamphetamine" is easily the cachiest single of the year that will be universally, and curiously, ignored by radio. "Dominoes" will appease those who liked "Letters" "Joan", and the final song "When Canyons Ruled the City" has a pleasant, almost Beatles-esque flow and vibe that closes the album on an upbeat note. And unlike most artists, Butch Walker has always had the ability to be reminscent of other artists while sounding completly like himself, no small feat friends.

Lyrically the record follows the usual Butch Walker charactors without sounding forced. If anything, this might be the most joyous jaded rock record you'll hear all year. And Butch's backing band, the The Let's Go Out Tonites don't necessarily add a lot to the songs, but they play with energy and a looseness that was lacking from the last two Butch Walker solo records.
