Grand National is the fourth album by the John Butler Trio. Somewhere between 22 and 25 songs were considered for this album, some created during or before Sunrise Over Sea. To date, it is the John Butler Trio's most ambitious work, containing many more instruments than previously seen on their albums, including a whole strings and horn section on some songs, with numerous percussion instruments for many more. It's been a few years now since John Butler and his trio first cracked the American market, but he's never had quite the same success in the U. as he has had in Australia, his father's homeland and his own residence for the past 20-odd years. Butler, however, should feel confident that he can hold his own against any of the Dave Matthewses, Ben Harpers, or John Mayers all three of whom he can be easily compared to out there.

His ability to write catchy guitar licks is just about as good as any. The difference between this album and Sunrise Over Sea is the consistency. You get the feeling that John Butler is in a good place on Grand National. The lyrics are contemplative but not negative, thoughtful but not overdone and poignant without being forceful. The opener, Better Than, is Johns take on both modern capitalist society and individual struggle. The lyrics are uncomplicated yet undeniably effective
