|This albums taken some stick, being more reflective than his past work. But those of you who are more open-minded should enjoy a lot about this disc. That said, it's not without it's faults. The first-half is excellent, with "Mixtape" and "Uncomfortably Numb" taking the plaudits IMO, but the second-half loses momentum with too many slower tunes (ending with 2 ballads?!). But the vocals and production are killer, and "Joan" and "Thankyou Note" expose more of Walker's songwriting genius. 8/10.|

|Yep,nowhere near as good as Self centred or Readysexgo,but still an album full of quality tunes. Butch Walker should be huge!|

|What an album! Yes, it's as mellow as it gets, but those hooks I knew would prevail do so in fine form. 'Maybe it's just me' is a killer commercial rocker. 'Mixtape' and 'So at last' are balladic perfection, 'Uncomfortably numb' is again commercial rock bliss, 'Joan' and 'Don't move' are once again balladic perfection as is 'Best thing you never had' and 'Promise'. Soft, but huge hooks. And the hidden track is a killer rock tune. Excellent album.|

|Any MBer here knows what's coming. This album, as TIM stated, is pure songwriting genius. This guy knows how to craft a tune. While different from LOSC (or M3 stuff), the personally introspective nature of the tracks on this album make it so much more meaningful on personal levels. Walker isn't concerned w/ prescribing to the industry's preconceived notion of what kind of songs to write for commercial success. He just writes incredible, heartfelt music. If you happen to like it, great.|

|If not, he's content w/ releasing an album of which he's proud. As TIM also said, those of you who are open-minded will find this release particularly satisfying. There aren't the Arena Rock anthemic-type songs on here, but if you listen to the word tapestries woven by Walker, you can't help but be spellbound by the articulate nature in which he tells a story. Another phenominal release from what should be one of the seminal artists of this era.|

|I'll be the one to say it: Butch sold out with this one. He tries an emo record with none of the funny lyrics hes known for. I'm a huge fan of his and this is his first record i didnt love. Mixtape is a pretty good ballad and Maybe It's Just Me is an OK rocker...I cant do this, i wanted to throw this CD at the wall, good thing Butch didnt put Freak Of The Week on this album, which had the lyric "tell me I've sold out, go ahead" because I would take him up on that.|

|I'm definitely don't see a sellout with this, but I wasn't too keen on at first because it's mellower than previous releases. That being said, this has really grown on me and I've come to really enjoy it. I wouldn't call this a radical departure from his style, I see it more as a natural progression. You could see hints of this on several tunes from LOSC. (cont.)|

|If you're looking for M3 or amusing lyrical content this won't satisfy, but then hey, I don't feel funny every day either...how can you grow as an artist if you stay in the same groove? He doesn't sound like Southgang anymore either...|

|This album is amazing another one of Butch Walkers master pieces.. i heard from his web site that he should be kicking off another one of these amazing records in the summer of 06' im sure its gonna be great... im only 12 and most people know kids are into snoop dog, 50 cent all that crap.. but im sticking with the original now and forever... i love butch walker hes absolutly amazing! i give this album 10 points all the way!!|

|I miss this version of Butch; the introspective, emotive song-writer. Still keeping the hooks, but less focus on trying to come across as exceptionally clever. Instead, he wears his heart on his sleeve and pontificates on the highs and lows of living life. Walker's amazing and while this is a far cry from Marvelous 3, it represents a natural evolution.|
