All Music Guide - Erik Crawford
Three opens with the distinctive fingerpicked, slide-driven guitar that becomes the canvas for the remainder of the record. Joined by Rory Quirk on bass and Jason McGann on drums, the trio delivers an emotionally charged romp through ten tracks of earthy, bluesy jam band intonations.

The most accessible and shortest song on the record, "Pickapart," shows off Butler's picking prowess on an amplified 12-string acoustic guitar. Lyrically, Butler takes several political stances, from the pro-environmental song "Earthbound Child" to the anti-violence statement made by "Attitude." The passion in his vocals gives credibility to his fervor for these causes. The John Butler Trio have established the foundation for a promising career, and they are a welcome addition to the musical landscape.
