5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful album that blew my mind 6 Jun 2005
By ren
Format:Audio CD
I first heard of the Geraldine Fibbers through a contemplation album, but then I finally bought their album, and wow. Just... Wow. The musical diversity they show, as well as their amazing knowledge of different instruments is pure genius. And the producing couldn't be any better then what you find on Butch. 'Toybox' and 'I Killed the Cuckoo' distinctly smell like grunge yet the use of classical instruments adds an element to the songs that sends tingles down your spine. Moving on to songs such as 'Folks Like Me' and 'Pet Angel' you find yourself trapped in a countrified trip where the music style reeks of heartache with bizarre subjects such as alien lovers and twisting ballads. Melancholic songs such as 'Butch' and 'Swim Back to Me' are hard and soft at the same time, whereas the instrumental 'Claudine' and 'Heliotrope', which integrate instruments such as a Celeste and Coda Psychosis are pure brilliance which wraps around your little minds and shatters them completely. If I had to compare them to another band I'm guessing that the closest I could get to describing them would be to say imagine the offspring of Liz Phair, Kurt Cobain and Black Francis. And then imagine that the one child from that unholy liaison formed a band. I'm guessing that would be the most accurate portrayal. Anyways, here's a cliché BUY THEIR ALBULM. And for the conclusion... "Stay out Stay back Stay black Kitty cat Black"

5.0 out of 5 stars the best album of 97 29 Aug 1998
By Andrew J. Paciocco - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was fortunate enough to discover this album last year, and not too long after the Geraldine Fibbers became my favorite band. Whereas the Fibber's sound could be described before this album with enough hyphens (country-punk-pop, etc. . .) no amount of ineffective descriptions do their sound on this album justice. With virtuoso guitarist Nels Cline now in the mix, the Fibbers decided to expand their already unique sound, particularly lead singer Carla Bozulich and Cline's taste in avant-garde sonic youth style noise. The first song, California Tuffy, is catchy poppy song that even hints at surf guitar, which is followed by two songs that are more punk than anything else, but not like any punk you've ever heard before. The country influence is scaled back somewhat from their previous album, with the exception of two songs in the middle of the cd that are as country as any George Jones cover the Fibbers ever recorded. Jessy Greene's violin has never been more terrifying or beautiful than on the completely undefinable "Arrow Through My Drunken Heart", while Bozulich alludes to child abuse, a theme that occurs more than once. If you manage to survive that song without breaking down crying, the Fibbers reward you with more upbeat old-fashioned love song called "You Doo Right," a cover of the proto-punk band Can. Butch is easily the most diverse and versatile album of the year, but some of the focus and flow of Lost Somewhere Between the Earth and My Home was sacrificed to achieve it. An album that truly fits all moods, if not all people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, Awesome, Awesome 24 April 2000
By Justin Baumgartner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Words simply can't do justice to the incredible music on this CD. I'll have to say Carla Bozulich has one of the greatest voices in music and her songwriting and lyrics are both scary and brilliant. The band itself is equally able to handle the caustic punk material as well as the good old country in the middle of the CD. Just buy this already! You'll thank me later.

4.0 out of 5 stars a very fine album indeed. 31 Dec 2002
By Linda C. Gerhardt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Oh, how the world need more gender-bending alt-country poetesses who know the power of a well-placed Can song.
Unfortunately, after a few listens, the twisted country hootenannies start to lose their punch, but the slow dirges ("Trashman In Furs," "Butch") and the angry palpitations ("Toybox," "I Killed the Cukoo") are the songs that grow on you like moles.
I'd recommend The Fibbers, particularly, to people who find themselves disillusioned with the crop of female musicians the record industry has to offer. Carla Bozulich is exactly the kind of clandestine, original, powerful voice I'm always thrilled to unearth.
5.0 out of 5 stars Give Butch A Chance 28 Mar 2011
By Squid_Decor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I first saw the video for California Tuffy on some local cable-access show, and was hooked from then on. I bought the cd, and it has become one of my all time favorites. Like eating some complex dish at a nice restaraunt, there is a nice fusion of different influences that make a pleasing sum of all parts. Some ferocious punk, and dissonance, with some sporadic twang and violin are thrown in. Carla has a unique voice that may not be "pretty" in timbre, but sounds wonderful in this setting. She can pull off a nice folk sound, or her voice can punch you in the face. Nels Cline the guitarist on this recording went on later to play with Wilco. She continues to make some pretty interesting music, albeit a little more experimental than this one.

This album is amazing. They rock. Carla rocks. It's one of my favorite albums of all time and I have brilliant taste in music.
