2.5 averageArtVandelay2 | March 28th 10

Only like 5 songs i like on this album. Not very John Butlery-sounding for the most part. Pretty comercialised. One song sounds punkish, others mainstream rock. Highlight for me is Mystery Man

April Uprising is a conundrum in music form. On the one hand you have The John Butler Trio's back catalogue when considering how to approach it. If the only reason you got into JBT was because of John Butler's guitar, then avoid this album. If you like alternative rock music, or a little bit of folk (Iron and Wine sound familiar?) then this is your thing. The reason is this: John Butler has decided that, rather then using his usual finger-picking style, he's going to use rock riffs and chord progressions that wouldn't be out of a place on an Eskimo Joe album. You've probably guessed this by now but April Uprising is very commercial. The choruses are catchy to the point of stupidity and the riffs revolved more around being "fun" then showing any kind of technical skill.

This is the weakest John Butler album I've heard but its still got some great songs on it and is a tolerable listen, its just not as good as the previous three albums. (I haven't heard his first self-titled album)
