I Liked It Better
When You Had No Heart
Who the hell is Butch Walker? is the likely question even though he’s released 4 studio albums, 2 live and 4 E.P.s. The more astute musician may know that Butch has produced albums for the likes of Panic at the Disco!, Pink and Bowling for Soup but it’s unlikely they’d realize that he’s written hits for Weezer, Avril Lavigne and many more. Butch Walker is a phenomenon who deserves recognition beyond the boundaries of the USA. Hopefully this album, I Liked You Better When You Had No Heart, will accomplish that. It deserves it! For months, his catchy, melodic rock was my favourite played on repeat. It’s inconceivable that singles such as ‘Trash Day’ and ‘She Likes Hair Bands’ weren’t major hits – they’re a quality alternative to the likes of Puddle of Mudd. Favourite songs – ‘Be Good Until Then’, ‘She Likes Hairbands’, ‘House of Cards’ and ‘Pretty Melody’.
