Although hardly a household name in the UK, Butch Walker is a not only an accomplished musician & singer/songwriter he's also renowned for his production skills with artists like P!nk, Avril Lavigne, Katy Perry, Simple Plan and Fall Out Boy amongst those that he's recently worked with. This is his fourth solo album and is quite simply as stunning record.

Named after the street in Southern California where Butch Walker lived that was destroyed by wildfire in late 2007, Sycamore Meadows is an auto biographical, introspective journey through his 38 years to date and showcases his talents perfectly. Whether it's the uplifting, sassy strut of `The Weight of Her' and `Ponce De Leon Ave.' or the beautiful melancholy of `Summer Scarves' or `Ships in a Bottle' you can't fail to be impressed with the wit and sensitivity of Walker's lyrics and the quality musicianship evident on each of the 12 tracks.

It's hard to pick stand out tracks from an album dripping in such quality but the awesome `Here Comes the...' just about steals the show. It's the perfect break up song, written (one assumes) from the perspective of a guy knowing another heart break is on the cards and readying himself for the inevitable fall out - "Here comes the heartache, the move out date, excuses for my friends". This song alone deserves to catapult Butch Walker to super stardom. `Going Back / Going Home' features a wonderful and hilarious rap summing up Butch's childhood, first forays into the music business and current state of mind and `Passed Your Place, Saw Your Car, Thought Of You' is a rom com of a tune that would melt the hardest of hearts.

For such a personal album, paying homage to places, loves and losses `Sycamore Meadows' is remarkably accessible and enjoyable. Anyone who enjoys the likes of Jason Mraz, Gavin DeGraw and John Mayer will enjoy this album immensely.

HASH(0x95a311c8) out of 5 stars Butch is back! 12 Nov. 2008
By Brandon N. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Prepare to be blown away! This is Butch's best album yet. The lyrics are phenomenal and definitely some of the most heart-felt he has ever done. This album absolutely oozes acoustic emotion and if it doesn't touch you in some way, you haven't been living life in this world. He also proves he hasn't lost his rock edge either...

"The Weight of Her" (if you don't think of Tom Petty when you hear this track, I don't know what rock you've been hiding under) -- brilliant track.

"Going Back / Going Home" -- love Butch's "rap" near the end...

"Ships In A Bottle" -- my personal fav

"Here Comes The...", "Passed Your Place...", "Summer Scarves", "ATL", "Untitled" -- hauntingly beautiful ballads and slower songs from the heart and soul that IS Butch Walker...

The whole album is exceptional, personal, and very well done. Great job, Butch!

HASH(0x96026894) out of 5 stars New Approach, Same Result: Awesome 13 Nov. 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If there is one thing I can expect from a Butch Walker record, is to be blown away. Sycamore Meadows is far more acoustic-based and intimate then anything we've heard before from his solo career besides a few songs in Letters. The majority of the songs do have a slower pace, which takes a few listens to fully appreciate the melodies, but you can not deny his talent at song arrangements. Well written, not over/under produced, and never dull. Some of the highlights for me are ATL, Here Comes The... and Summer Scarves. I've always been a big fan of his more rock-out numbers but there is no question he is extremely gifted at ballads. It's incredible that he can write songs so well at both ends of the spectrum. But that's Butch, so I shouldn't be surprised.

Outside the ballads, I have been listening to Ponce de Leon Ave. and Vessels constantly the past day and I am thoroughly impressed with how Butch setup these pop-rock songs. Musically, they have a cutting-edge sound to them with great big choruses and interesting musical instruments. The bells in Vessels give the song a very dramatic vibe to it. As for Ponce..., it's the party song of the CD. I love the beat during the bridge. Am I the only one who feels 10x cooler when I listen to a Butch CD?

Thanks, Butch for giving us another phenomenal record.

HASH(0x96038978) out of 5 stars See this guy live!!! 1 May 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

I must admit that despite Butch Walker's very long career, I never heard of him until I saw him live in Orlando at the end of March this year. I was going solely because a friend of mine was playing guitar in his band and really had no expectations whatsoever other than to visit my friend. This guy is a phenomenal showman! The songs are great and he connected with everyone at the show. I went home and downloaded this CD and I've been listening to it ever since. Because of this CD, I actually feel like I know Butch Walker, like he poured his soul into a CD and handed it to whoever would listen. Awesome! Buy this CD; you won't be disappointed.

HASH(0x95e71c84) out of 5 stars Excellent Return of Butch Walker 30 Dec. 2008
By A.N. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I like the new offering by Butch Walker - I certainly enjoy it more than the last effort which I wasn't bad but did not appeal to me in a mass way.

Butch has really grabbed my attention as he has written songs that reflect personal experiences, many of which are about love lost, inspirations gained, and pain felt, as those experiences are the ones that many others have also encountered. I feel that this is his most successful album as an artist and I hope that he sells many copies as this is an album that deserves to heard as this music would appeal to the masses and what better way than to focus on topics that have meaning for multitudes.

A strong stand out track is "Ships in a Bottle", which is a song about love's flame that quit burning and the pain that resulted is sung in its pure art form: The entire construction of the ship in a glass bottle is done with pliers' and tweezers as the bottle opening is much too small to allow bigger tools. Because of the small bottle opening, each piece must be able to fit through the opening, so you can imagine the tedious work this is. In time, the pieces become a ship inside a bottle. The ship, fully constructed, is incapable of being taken out of the bottle as, fully assembled, it is too large to fit. Hence, it is stuck unless disassembled piece by piece or the bottle broken.

With time, with bottle movement, the ship begins to break down, similar to what the song says, "Breaking down, sails falling off". Trying to stay afloat inside a place you can't survive. Symbolism for how the person Butch describes in the song is feeling "stuck with the pain of love lost and no way out, like a ship in a bottle, falling apart piece by piece".

The entire album is good and one which you can listen to from start to finish, which is a rare thing in today's music industry.

Further memorable tracks include: "The Weight Of Her", "Here Comes The...Heartache", "Vessles", "The 3 Kids In Brooklyn", and "Summer Scarves".

HASH(0x95fcba08) out of 5 stars He does it again. 11 Jan. 2009
By pennylanebt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After I fell in love w/ LOSC, it took a bit of adjustment on my part to appreciate "Letters". Since then, it's become one of my favorites of his. Now, he's back, better than ever, (with a couple CDs in between) with Sycamore Meadows. My take? Better than them all. His sincerity and honestly comes out in every song. Be sure to check the hidden track about 4 minutes in after "ATL".

If you heard the rough cuts he released last year you'll be amazed at how they've evolved. Adding P!nk to the vocals on "Here Comes The..." was a wise choice. Harmonies are fantastic.

If I could give this CD more stars, I would. It's THAT amazing.
