Roughly Speaking is the sixteenth studio album by the Canadian rock band April Wine,[2] released in November 2006.[3]

The album was recorded without computerized modern digital recording techniques.[4] Instead, the group employed the same type of audiophile quality analog recording technology it had used during the 1980s, including a 2-inch, 24 track master tape recorder and a state-of-the art half-inch 2-track stereo recorder.[5] Members of the band, along with some other music fans, believe that such equipment can provide a more musically pleasing, or "vintage" type of sound.

The songs are all new material written by original frontman Myles Goodwyn, with the exception of one track, "Night Life", written by Willie Nelson.
