Policy. Will Butler
In this first album solo, Will Butler is really far from the sound of Arcade Fire. As he said in an interview to Pitchfork, he intended to reflect his omnivorous musical taste, and in this album he get what he wants.
In other words, we can say this album is a exploration across the time, specially the rock of the 60’s and 80’s only to discover different facets of the intense voice of Will Butler and also to remember that the rock still alive.
For us, the most notable part of this album is the mix between the emotive Butler’s voice and the guitar riffs, remembering sometimes The Smiths’ sound as in “Sing To Me” and in “Waving Flag”.
Our evaluation of this album is:
– originality: 10
– use of instruments: 10
– lyrics: 10, mostly In “Madonna Can’t Save Me Now”
– coherence between the songs in the album: 9.5
– coherence between the sound of the instruments: 10
