5.0 out of 5 stars OUTSTANDING! 13 Sep 2004
Format:Audio CD
It is rare that I write reviews on CDs I've bought (and I buy A LOT), but I got this CD in the post yesterday and it is quite simply the best album I've heard in a long time. I absolutely love all the Marvelous 3 albums, and Left of The Self-Centred (Butch's first solo effort) was a good album but it was lacking something. It felt experimental and isn't half as good as Letters. The main appeal of Letters and the M3 albums is they are like whole albums of stand-out tracks- and nothing else. No fillers whatsoever- how many albums can you say that about!
"Letters" splits into two different types of song- firstly, there is the extremely catchy, kickass, play-me-loud rockier songs with really quirky tongue-in-cheek lyrics, as Marvelous 3 fans will be familiar with. These tracks are Maybe It's Just Me, #1 Summer Jam, Uncomfortalbly Numb, Don't Move, and Lights Out.
However, the other half of the album is something a bit different for Butch- these songs are heartwrenchingly sad, absolutely gorgeous ballads which we have never seen before from Butch, apart from the amazing "Cigarette Lighter Love Song" which is on M3's ReadySexGo album. These new songs are almost emo-ish (several are just Butch's voice and a piano). And you won't really realise until you listen to these songs, actually how good his voice is. It is beautiful, almost whispering at times, and will make you feel all shivery. These songs are So At Last, Joan, Best Thing You Never Had, Mixtape, Promise and Thank-You Note.
The wonderful thing is that Butch succeeds on doing both very different types of song, extremely well.
Here are my thoughts on the individual tracks-
1.) Sunny Day Real Estate- This is only an intro-type song which only lasts about 30 seconds, very pretty nonetheless. 9/10

Butch Walker seems to be something of a non-entity in England and the UK, something which is totally incomprehensible to me. How can people not have heard of him, we have so much access to American music these days... and yet who knows the Butch? Select few, that's who. Anyway, Letters is generally regarded as his best album, and I would uphold that although Left of Self Centred is my favourite to listen to. This album has such a variety of songs, ones to make you lovey, ones to make you laugh, make you cry (and believe me, 'Joan' makes me cry a LOT) and it even includes Butch's self proclaimed favourite of his songs, 'Best Thing You Never Had'. I seriously cannot sing this album's praises well enough to do it justice, so let Butch do it himself and buy the album! And then fall in love with him and go see him on his next UK visit (I'm going in 3 days :O))

I have been listening to BW for about 5 years now, right back to his days with the Marvelous 3. This record is a bit of a departure from the debut solo effort 'left of self centred' but is a stunning piece of work from an insanely talented artist.
Tracks like 'mixtape', 'Joan' and the awesome 'Don't move' show a songwriter at the height of his powers. The influences on this record range from Jellyfish / Pet sounds era Beach Boys to Elvis Costello. Eclectic and brilliant.
A record to cherish.
