Product Description

Product Description

The John Butler Trio's album, Sunrise Over Sea, is phenomenal - from the opening notes of "Treat Yo Mama," a muscular and soulfully expressive roots rocker, to the final strains of the expansive, ten-minute-long opus "Sometimes." The John Butler Trio is arguably the best musical group Australia has to offer. Set to play a sold out concert at Brixton Academy in April and with a huge UK following this should cross Butler over to the mainstream. This album's mesmerizing 14 tracks delivers a perfect eclectic blend of blues, reggae, classic country, Appalachian folk, funk, rock and hip-hop beats in a form and style that can only be classified as The John Butler Trio. This version features 1 extra track to the Oz version the Australian top 10 single 'Betterman'.

5.0 out of 5 stars if it can be betterd................ 10 Jun 2005
Format:Audio CD
What an album,the boy butler has done some pretty skilled stuff in his time,but this is the best. The prettiest album i have ever heard. I dont think there is a bad point on the whole album,i was even down with J.B playin the banjo cos it sounded so damn good. Its nice to hear something with so much heart and that has obviously been put together by a man who is actually a muscian first and foremost. I have must be over 700 cd's maybe a couple of thosand vinyl and a hell of alot of track on my computer but somehow this is still the only album i have been hearing the past year - absolutley brlliant!. if u want good music in any form this aint for you. If you live for music and need your next yearly fantastic album hit before you dry up BUY IT.

I was lucky enough to see The John Butler Trio play at Brixton Academy in April and I must have been one of the only Brits in the crowd. It was as though every Australian in London had made sure they were there, and rightly so!
These are three outstanding musicians and this latest offering from the band is a real testament to that. The album has plenty of variation and mood change throughout, and it's more easy going than 'Three' - their previous album - which had much longer tracks with more instrumental. Incidentally it looks as though the Trio have added 'Betterman' onto this album as a bonus that didn't feature on the original version of 'Sunrise...', but on 'Three'. It's a great track, so a bit of a bargain there for all new fans. If you want to get a feel of the album before you buy, I suggest listening to Peaches and Cream, Company Sin, Zebra and Oldman - four choice tracks. There really isn't a bad song on this album though so you'd be doing well with any.
This is an essential buy for any Ben Harper/Jack Johnson fan, and if you like it, then check out Missy Higgins as well - slightly different vein, but another Australian gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars JBT do it again. 8 April 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Yet another fantastic release from John Butler and his trio. This, their third album proper(and 1 Ep), is an amazing offering in which the the band, with new bass player and drummer, sound much more musically "together". They have cut back on the 10 minute epics, and made the music sound a lot more tight knit. Anyone who has seen this band, one of the very best live performances I have seen, will appreciate the fact that the recorded music still has the same quality, whether live or listening to it in their lounge. Of course the live show does exceed any atmosphere expectations you could imagine, although if you can't see him live, the cd is great!! A special highlight, the funked up "Treat yo Mama" and the single "zebra". SUPERB!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not bad for an aussie 21 Dec 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have recently returned from australia and it saddens me that no-one back in the UK seems to have heard of JBT. Simply belting!!! The laid back 'funk' reflects a typical way of life in australia and you can see elements of the album in life itself in australia, all in all worth a listen. And like previous reviews have stated, they are talented and interesting live, they seem to add an extra dimension.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Aussie Music 22 Nov 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I cannot understand why the likes of John Butler are so little known and appreciated here in the UK. This album is a superb collection of well written, intelligent songs about life performed by an understated genius, backed by a solid band. Simply unmissable. UK radio producers please talke note - play it, not all good music comes from the UK or USA.

It seems that a lot of John Butler fans prefer his early efforts (S/T, and Three). But personally i think this is by far the best JBT album so far. With tracks like Treat Yo Mama, Hello, Bound To Ramble and Zebra. John Butler shows just how many levels there are to his talent. If your looking for a head on Acoustic rock album go for Three, if you want some sublime 12 string instrumental epics go for S/T. This however has the whole package in 1. If you love John Butler you should also keep a look out for Xaver Rudd, Jack Johnson, Big Midget, Ash Grunwald, some more great acoustic acts there.

5.0 out of 5 stars fine album from the Aussie legend 28 April 2004
By "egg2"
Format:Audio CD
Simply superb. New band members and less mucking around at the end of songs. Chilled and happy at the same time. Lie back and appreciate the genius in songs like 'peaches and cream' and 'what you want' or get up and dance to 'Treat yo mama' and 'zebra'. What more can i say? ... simplyexcellent!

5.0 out of 5 stars hooked on first listen 23 May 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Thanks to all the other reviewers who raved about this album. One listen and I'm hooked. There is no time wasted here on trying to be fashionable or cool. They mean it, with their whole heart and soul they mean it. This album truly has the energy and presence of a live gig. Passionate songs delivered with sweat. Great stuff.
