iTunes Review

Though his band Marvelous 3 only had sporadic success, Butch Walker has impacted popular music in a big way, producing hits for Avril Lavigne, Pink and Kate Perry. His own music is also highly cognizant of pop hooks and bright, punchy productions designed to stick to radio waves. “Pretty Melody” begins things with an orchestral joust that sounds like Phil Spector’s Wall of Sound broken into little pieces. “She Likes Hair Bands” sounds like a rocker you might hear from Uncle Kracker with its tightly produced street strut highlighting Walker’s quick backwards glance at a long-gone era. “Don’t You Think Someone Should Take You Home” is a masterful last-call barroom ballad, while “Trash Day” comes close to a roots-rocker but always with Walker’s extra spit-shine and layer of electrified guitar. Walker’s such a natural in the recording studio that what often sounds like it should take months is probably just a toss-off for a guy this talented. Where other songwriters struggle to find the hook, Walker trips over them on the way to the mixing board.

To deep for his own good ??

Don't get me wrong, I like Butch Walker. He is a musical genius, but sometimes I think he tries to hard. I think I prefer the Marvelous3 upbeat rock sound. There is a few great tracks here, but a little boring for me. More rock, less pop !!!

Stunning, per usual.

butch the Singer has always been light and day different from butch the Producer. but on 'I liked It Better When You Had No Heart', you can see what kind of music he truly believes in making for himself. the cd is not technically 'perfect', but the slight cracks in his voice at times give it a character that most cds these days are lacking. it sounds a bit like your friend is sitting in the room with you, pouring his heart out with a guitar.

there are no false pretenses with butch, just utter honesty in his lyrics and a few chords being played along. after a few times listening through the cd, you understand a bit more about this man who has experienced so much and still has more to offer us. for better or for worse, his heartbreaks are our gains. his music sweeps the dust of off everyday life, if just for a little while.


every album finds a way to be greater than the last. a truly great musician.
see him live if you ever get the chance!

Butch Walker is a singer, songwriter, and producer whose skills run from radio-friendly pop to high-attitude hard rock. After gaining a brief taste of major-label success during the '80s and '90s -- particularly with Marvelous 3, whose single "Freak of the Weak" became a modern rock hit in 1999 -- Walker traded his bandmates for a solo career. Meanwhile, he also established himself as an in-demand producer by working with high-profile artists like Avril Lavigne, Katy Perry, and P!nk. Raised in...
