We gave it a B+

Fans of the The Geraldine Fibbers’ Patti Smith-gone-country debut will almost certainly be disappointed: Their second album largely dispenses with hillbilly posturing for straightforward rock riffs and punk bravado. Even so, much of Butch matches that last disc’s intensity. The Fibbers still sound like a very good band trying to work up the confidence to be themselves, but Butch is a promising step in that direction. B+
