  1. From the onset, this disc excels on a new level.
  2. If Foreigner was still an active, young band, it would sound a lot like Matchbox Twenty.

    Rob Thomas has a great and unique voice, unlike many other bands.

    Matchbox Twenty goes above and beyond anything you will hear in this so-called "popular music" genre. And I listen to everything from ambient Matchbox Twenty goes above and beyond anything you will hear in this so-called "popular music" genre. And I listen to everything from ambient Sigur Ros to tech metal Between the Buried and Me. I think it's very impressive when a band can run six string sweeps over a series of diminished7 chords. I think it's even more impressive when a band can make a person relate to their music in such a way that he or she will search the music for answers. This is album, and band, are deeply, deeply touching. As for the mediocrity comments, I think most of us can agree there is nothing, and I mean nothing, mediocre about their style. I've been listening to them my whole life. Never before, never since, have I heard such moving pieces of musical mastery. Full Review »

    Anyone who gives this under a 7 is musically ignorant. Matchbox Twenty don't pretend to be an atmospherically intense dramatic emotional Anyone who gives this under a 7 is musically ignorant. Matchbox Twenty don't pretend to be an atmospherically intense dramatic emotional band, they make music for people to enjoy. That's the whole point and no-one does it better. Albums don't get nominated for album of the year at the Grammys for nothing. Full Review »
