genius - joe h. has never bettered this dark, hallucinatory masterpiece - songs that deal with plane crashes, forced marriages in early 20th century europe, bitter love affairs, war trauma, all couched in a style that veers from his early alt-country roots into something more organic, like a lounge tom waits. the title track is an tense, economical masterpiece. well worth a punt.

In the spirit of Nick Hornby - Ohio Air Show Plane Crash should make everyone's all time top ten. Slightly different direction from Joe's previous stuff...but even better. Everyone should own this recording.

HASH(0xa200bf6c) out of 5 stars dreaming of flowers 26 Oct. 2000
By wanda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
this album has become one of my favorite joe henry albums, not only for the elegance of the lyrics but also for the brooding darkness lurking in every song. trampoline exudes pain and despair in nearly every track, but escapes oppression with brilliant sounds and instrumentals (who else could use a pump organ, tape loops, electric guitar, operatic soprano AND a barbershop choir and not only escape disaster but end with such intoxicating results?). as others before me have mentioned, "flower girl" is a song of unrivalled beauty and mystery and probably joe henry's most hypnotic (and confounding) song ever. "parade" and "trampoline" both hint at memories that haunt long after the events that inspired them and even the happier sentiments on the album belie an inevitable isolation. though other reviewers mention a disconnected feel to the album, i think the flow of the songs is wonderful and dreamlike with the perfect balance between despair and reprieve.

HASH(0xa2019270) out of 5 stars Joe's best stuff 25 Jun. 2001
By Kelly Street - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Operating for years on the roots rock/folk circuit, Joe Henry didn't just change his sound for this release. He effectively changed the direction he would take on subsequent releases, in effect starting over. While his prior CDs were good and garnered much critical acclaim, there was nothing to prepare the listener for this. I am no die-hard Joe Henry fan, (Scar and Fuse leave me cold) but there is no doubting the brilliance of Trampoline. Every song is impressive, like a greatest hits album of new material. Guest guitarist Page Hamilton from Helmet was a wise choice. Hard to pick highlights here, but two songs that harken back to Joe's country/folk days, "Go With God" and "Parade" are among the best things he has recorded.

HASH(0xa25c2c78) out of 5 stars An album that has to grow on you 24 Mar. 2000
By Mark P - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I bought this because an indie radio station played "Trampoline" one night. I soon found that "Ohio Plane Show Crash" was an instant like as well as the great reverb and drumming on "Trampoline", and one of the most underrated song of music in my opinion , "Parade". a very good CD to sit back and reflect....

HASH(0xa201d66c) out of 5 stars Not just any old joe 26 Mar. 2003
By Roy Pearl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This was the album where Joe Henry suddenly veered away from the faceless but competent country-rock of his earlier albums and plunged headfirst into capital "A" art. The printed lyrics read like poetry, and the instrumental backing inches ever closer to the supple jazz leanings of his future releases. Guest guitarist Page Hamilton (of Helmet) supplies gently rocking support on the epic mystery of "Ohio Air Show Plane Crash" as well as surprisingly muscular funk on a cover of Sly Stone's "Let Me Have It All", but the remainder of "Trampoline" could almost be termed folk cabaret. The atmosphere throughout is one of almost crushing regret.

HASH(0xa201d81c) out of 5 stars MESMERIZING!! 27 Sept. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This collection is so well crafted I find it completely mesmerizing - the songs draw you in deeper and deeper. This album is a break from Henry's previous alt-country, acoustic-folk cd's (all great). It rocks in a haunting, mystical way with great use of drums, electric guitar, and effects. Henry's voice and lyrics too keep you hanging on every phrase. This cd takes you places....... Fantastic.
