13 Songs, 57 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Self-described curmudgeon Matthew Good writes lyrics that don't let anybody off the hook: In "Indestructible," a dead lover returns to scold his ex for wasting her life; on "Everything Is Automatic," he ridicules the very idea of contentment. Yet both songs sound like liberating rock anthems, thanks largely to Dave Genn's soaring lead guitar. At times, this album cops some of Pearl Jam's intensity, but the epic and largely acoustic finale, "Change of Season," proves Good's his own man.
