iTunes Review

Matchbox Twenty has stacked up platinum plaques, with enough singles to fill a 2007 greatest hits collection (Exile on Mainstream) and be anointed one of the most popular bands of the late ‘90s/early ‘00s. North is its first new studio album in 10 years, written in a house in Nashville. Rob Thomas and company continue MB20’s legacy of charged pop, lyrical and melodic contraptions, and solid hooks.

Room for Improvement

I recall when I was 14 and my dad placed this CD into the stereo, and then proceeded to hand me the case for me to inspect. I remember thinking 'there is a strange fella with glasses looking at me...'. Then, like a clap of thunder, the drums of 'Real World' started, and I knew from that point on I had 'the song'. You know that song, the one that you will never forget, always relate with and listen to over 2000+ on your iTunes. Well, to me, 'Real World' was that. This band, Matchbox 20 (yes, 20!) had became part of me. However, with the bringing of 'North', I was so hopeful and confident I would be hearing and feeling that same vibe I got 8 years ago. Sadly, I did not. Sure, there are some good songs, maybe even great ones, but nothing I can say will be on the level of the previous albums. MB20 strayed from their roots and adjusted a bit too much to become more 'modern pop'. The techno machine sounding club like song(s) are cringe worthy and just not worth noting as MB20 material. Next time, I hope they lose the sync machines, pick up their guitars and sticks and get back to their roots.


Been looking forward to a new mb20 album for a long time, and have to be honest and say that I am a little disappointed with this effort. There are however some great songs on here that I will come to love, with 'the way'(kyle cooks vocals are outstanding!), 'parade', 'radio', 'English town' and 'I will' stand outs for me. But to me the album lacks a little bit of conviction, it feels more like they were forcing themselves to try something different (and coming up with some cringe worthy songs in that process). I guess I just expected more from such a long gap between records. Still one of my favourite bands of all time, and want them to keep going, just expect better. More guitars, more orchestra, more soul, more power and less synth and poor attempts at 'dance/pop' next guys please! Only my opinion.


Over the last weeks I have read many critics reviews of this album about how poor it is in disbelief, but I am pained to say I agree, I have been a massive mb20 fan since back in the day, but this new material is verging on cheesy with no direction to it, the anthems just are not there and the rock is missing, sorry matchsticks but I'm disappointed, and I won't be the only 1.😒


Formed: 1996 in Orlando, FL

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Upon the release of their debut album, Yourself or Someone Like You, in fall 1996, Matchbox Twenty was pigeonholed as one of the legions of post-grunge guitar bands that roamed the American pop scene in the middle of that decade. As their first single, "Push," climbed the charts, it was widely assumed (at least by cynical critics) that they were a one-hit wonder, but Yourself or Someone Like You continued to spin off singles well into 1998. By that time, the group's blend of '70s arena rock and early-'90s...
