iTunes Editors' Notes

Matchbox Twenty singer Rob Thomas produces pop music that has one ear cocked towards classic AOR through the decades, with the other ear turned towards keeping the productions electrified to ensure the songs never sit still. His vocals are assured if never quite a revelation. “Real World ‘09” shuffles with a manic intensity as Thomas attempts to put the world into modern perspective, sounding more than a little like Eddie Vedder shuddering at the thought of another love affair ending if not the rest of the world falling apart. “Her Diamonds” (the album’s first single), “Give Me the Meltdown”, and “Someday” crackle with the pop urgency and anthemic choruses demanded by pop radio. “Fire On the Mountain” slides slightly towards world beat. In interviews, Thomas has said Cradlesong was inspired in part by Paul Simon’s South American inspired Rhythm of the Saints. “Hard On You” employs a sleek, easeful groove reminiscent of Silk Degreesera Boz Scaggs with a cleaner surface. The title track pulses with a sense of sadness and foreboding. Thomas is a sensitive singer-songwriter cast in modern rock production.

Unbelievable album, more people should listen to Rob he is an incredible artist. If you like Matchbox Twenty you will love the softer side of Rob on his solo albums. He is a genius.

Oh my god Rob where have you been! This is just a fabulous as all his other stuff and I'm in awe of his amazing talent. You done good boy :)

Stunning singer songwriter

This man should be as popular in this country as he is in the States, too many people know him as the 'bloke' who sang 'Smooth' with Santana but he's so much more than that. Check this album out its got everything and will hopefully bring Rob's music to the forefront in the UK too. Keep up the excellent work Rob and looking forward to some new Matchbox 20 stuff soon!
