Real talk: Butch Walker writes ridiculous sing-along pop songs so easily it should flat out embarrass the bands trying so hard to be catchy and fun. The Spade is what countless bands have been trying to write the past few years, and haven't come close.
Listening to the new Butch Walker album right now. It's pretty good. Still hasn't been able to write something on par with Letters for me, but I like what I'm hearing. I'm sure Chris Fallon will be the guy you'll want to listen to regarding this CD though -- this is his boy.
