ALBUM REVIEW: Brad Butcher ~ Jamestown

ptw scorebw6.5BB-Jamestown_CoverQueensland songwriter Brad Butcher certainly doesn’t take too many risks, nor does he hit too many emotional highs on Jamestown. His style is a calm and measured approach to his music but too often that is a recipe for songs blending together without enough dynamism across the eleven tracks. Occasionally his songs do excel, particularly the new single ‘Two Woman’ – a bluesy diversion from the balladeer approach that permeates most of the album and the title track which hits a rock ’n’ roll/bluegrass vibe and saves the album from becoming invisible in the middle of the road.
