In the career of Joe Henry, TRAMPOLINE is equivalent to Tom Waits' revelatory SWORDFISHTROMBONES. Like Waits, Henry ultimately found himself painted into a stylistic corner, constricted by the sonic conventions he'd adopted on previous records, and he discovered that the only way out was radical re-invention. Here, Henry abandons the Jayhawks-backed country-rock of his previous releases, opting instead for a more abstract approach to both songwriting and arrangement. Throwing in everything from zither and trombone to barbershop choir, Henry abandons the rulebook on which SHORT MAN'S ROOM and KINDNESS OF THE WORLD are based.
TRAMPOLINE is full of loops, samples, and electronics, but it has little in common with contemporaneous electronica. Rather, it employs state-of-the-art technology to escape the guy-with-a-guitar trap so many singer-songwriters fall into. Henry's elliptical, poetic lyrics and distinctive voice are still present, and they provided all the stylistic continuity needed to make this album an important part of this restlessly inventive artist's catalog.
Ranked #32 in the Village Voice's 1996 Pazz & Jop Critics' Poll.
Village Voice (02/25/1997)
3 Stars (out of 5) - ...Henry paints impressionistic big-sky landscapes in the Ry Cooder mode, using pedal steel, banjo and lots of tremolo guitar....Henry's most diverse and adventurous work...
Rolling Stone Magazine (04/18/1996)
8 (out of 10) - ...his strongest songs transcend folkie idioms....TRAMPOLINE, Henry's six full-length album, falls of the tastefulness wagon. Helmet's Page Hamilton plays guitar on four tracks, marshaling ambiguity and noise to aid Henry's identity sleights-of-hand...
8 (out of 10) - ...[Henry's] lyrics are as keenly pared as ever....The guile and cunning displayed on the best of TRAMPOLINE is the equal of anything you're likely to hear all year.
New Musical Express (05/11/1996)
...A searingly honest and compelling album. - Rating: A-
