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

OK just to be clear I am a massive Butch Walker fan and he can do little wrong in my eyes!

This is one of his older CDs and his second solo CD after the Marvelous 3 disbanded. He may have written lots of tunes for others but really his talents shine on his own recordings. Letters was somewhat of a transition out of the Marvelous 3 sound (particularly evident on Ready Sex Go) which he largely retained on his first solo CD Left of Self Centered. This was a little bit of a 'downer' sounding album but it has some of the best songs he has ever written (Joan and Best Thing for example). This is also the CD which was newest when I first saw him play in the UK in London at the Barfly which was an awesome gig that really set me up as a long term fan(Lets Go Out Tonights was soon to follow).

There are no 'bad' songs on this so for me the stand out tracks are the one's he tended to play live: Mixtape, Best Thing, Don't Move, Lights Out and Joan. The version that I have on my iphone also has a song called Last Flight Out (from the Heartwork EP) and All Falls Apart which he streamed on his website years ago and these are also superb and not sure why they were never on the standard retail CD version.

I think this is about the only place selling this CD as itunes for some reason does not have it though it does have the Heartwork EP which also worth getting if you like this CD.

Anyway you won't go far wrong if you buy this for this price as it is very well worth it!

Enjoy.

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))
