Editors’ Notes

Trampoline is Joe Henry's Sgt. Pepper's. Before this release, Henry garnered critical attention for a couple of terrific alt-country albums. But nothing prepared fans for the perfectly executed experimentation of Trampoline. Certainly nothing prepared them for his enlistment of Helmet guitarist Page Hamilton for power and grit. Or for "Flower Girl," a stark and spare novella of imagery against a backdrop of pump organ, shuddering strings, an opera singer (as instrument, not vocalist), and chunky drums. Throughout the album Henry sings as if he's telling you secrets in a dark bar frequented by carnival performers. By placing these songs within these innovative arrangements, Henry reveals how good his writing really is. More accessible than Tom Waits's Swordfishtrombones, this album mines similarly dark thematic caverns and comes up with solid gold.

Customer Reviews

Joe Henry goes electric

Great songs... -Ohio Air Show Plane Crash: a love song at the oddest of moments, when memories are most heightened. "I remember somebody shouting" -Bob & Ray: "get that $%^&# bug a new song sing" -Go With God -Let me have it all


In what conceivable universe is this album "country", are you kidding me? Makes my all-time top ten list. Especially Ohio Air Show and Parade. I'd love to hear this guy live in a small space.

Polished and alternative

Go With God has become one of my favorite songs. If you're looking for something 'a little bit country and a little bit rock' this album is a good bet. Let it grow on you.
