The song has the rhythm & raw energy of punk rock. It has a realness that helps express & emphasise the theme in a beautifully juxtaposed manner.
A song that brings a classic Pink Floyd style of songwriting and fuses it with a brilliantly appropriate, circus-like folk-rock back bone.
It’s a refreshing project, overflowing with feeling but all the while maintaining a calm & cool composure – something not often witnessed in modern music.
This album is like a ‘how to’ on modern life, a run through of the way things are. It’s fantastic, from start to finish. You can’t predict a single moment.
You can easily relate to these words & very quickly remember the melody lines. It’s a pleasure that could only be topped by witnessing the songs live.
The kind of album you can switch on at the end of a hard day, to let this whole new world of music and thoughts just wash away your troubles for a while.

First you hear a track called ‘Mammon’ – a live version, with a video, and you become obsessed.

It’s a song you don’t even understand the meaning of, but will be infatuated with … Continued
It’s been about three years since I first watched John Butler Trio wow the crowd at Australia’s Red Rocks Amphitheater. I wasn’t there, of course. I was at home, drinking tea, hearing the icy rain hit my window. But what a gig. What a moment. Some artists can change the way you think about music entirely, … Continued
