Album Review

As Butterfingers lament in their second album's opening track, "Anthem," critics (and awards judges) often have a hard time categorizing them: "Can't be urban, it's just not black enough/can't be contemporary, not wack enough/can't be rock 'cause we flip to hip hop." This album won't help those trying to pin their fusion of rap and rock influences down, as they continue racing in at least four different directions at once in most of the songs. The punky "Ska Chase" takes breaks for miniature solos that cover flamenco guitar, jazz saxophone, new wave synth, and deedly-deedly metal guitar while "Beautiful Music" marks a turn towards neo-hippie roots music. Frontman Evil Eddie's complaint about his relationship woes, "Like 'Em When They're Trouble," is a vaguely similar rootsy jam, but his vocals still swing from rapping to singing at the drop of a beat. "Golden Sunshine" starts out as relaxing as a tropical beach holiday, but becomes as demented as any Ween song by its end. While they've evolved musically, mastering more diverse styles, they've done it without getting much more serious — the self-deprecating boast rap of "Figjam" is as funny as anything they've written and Evil Eddie's obsession with menstruation is just as juvenile. Tying together this explosion at the genre factory is the uplifting "Get Up Outta the Dirt," a motivational speech in rap form that references half the album's songs, switching into their styles as it does so. While the overall effect may not be as quite as fresh or addictive as their debut, it will please fans immensely.

Customer Reviews

Largely unknown in the US, but give it a try

When you mesh rap and rock correctly, you get Butterfingers. When I have them playing in my car the people riding with me never know who they are, but they always want to hear more. Start with Fig Jam and Anthem, and work your way into the bands other tracks. Here's hoping that one day they do an American tour!

Just the right mix of Rap and Alt Rock

I first heard Butterfingers when I was just skimming the internet and I grew to like there music. They have a way of walking on the edge of appropriate that makes them fun to listen to. I also like the edition of classic Horns and vocals (Get Up Outta the Dirt), you don't hear that much in today's Rap/Rock.


No Breakfast at Fatboys?? C'mon iTunes... catch up. At least you're trying.
