After his performance at Lollapalooza, I was pretty much instantly hooked on Butch Walker, and I picked up this album shortly after. 1969 is a band that formed after a hollywood party to record this album.

        The album starts off with some good old fashioned rock and roll, but as it goes on, there are a lot of 80s new wave influences. Yeah, this album sounds like Hot Fuss era Killers, but with Butch on vocals... Actually the band sounds like U2 and the Killers giving birth to a band that wasnt as faggy as Coldplay.
