John Butler Trio: Something's Gotta Give

Sound — 9
Absolutely sensational. If anyone wants to hear JBT's view of the world today get this single. There are 5 instruments used in this single 5! Including double bass and an 11-string guitar.

The lyrics in this song have a lot of feeling in them. For e.g. when John Butler says "God bless the children in Iraq" and when he says "When there ain't no love then there ain't any life." This song shows John Butler's views and the views of most of Australia. John Butler has done the best thing he can do to make a political statement by releasing this single. Amazing voice and key changes.

Overall Impression — 10
This song is incredible because it is a song about everyone not just people in America. This single also has a live version of the song on the disk and comes with the video of the song. It also has some of the best dance moves I have ever seen in a video. The John Butler Trio is arguably the best Australian group around today.
