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.

Customer Reviews

Heck Freakin Yes

Wow. This album is amazing. Start to finish, It will blow your mind... Her Diamonds: 8/10 Its ok, I've heard it alot though, and its just not the best. Gasoline: 8/10 The beginning is dang sweet...Good song too. Give Me The Meltdown: 7/10: Cool and Catchy chorus, but the verse is kinda bland. And whats up with the monkey? Someday: 9/10 Slower, but cool piano and decent lyrics. Mocking bird: 8/10 Sounds too much like someday...Shouldve switched the order so they werent next to eachother. But it still owns. Real World '09: 10/10 Yes! This song is sweet! One of the best on the album... Fire on the Mountain: 9/10 Cool, a little long. But I love the chorus... Hard on You: 9/10: REally Catchy and fun to listen to Still aint over you: 7/10 Kinda lame...Nothin special. Natural: 8/10 still good though Snowblind: 10/10 This and real world take the cake. Wonderful: 9/10 I dig the horns... Cradlesong: 9/10 Great lyrics, sounds kinda like wake me up when september ends. Getting late: 8/10 Good closer. Bonus tracks are allright, but the her diamonds video is kinda lame... But this album is the best Ive seen in a long time.

GREAT ALBUM!

Rob Thomas's new Album is just amazing i love his style of music. From he first track to his last it keeps me listening. Her diamonds is his first single and i think it was a great choice has a great beat and great lyrics and is one of my favorite on the album 10/10 Gasoline another good track has a cool start almost makes it seem like its gonna be a techno song for a couple seconds but then gets in to it and is a chill rock song not one of my fav but still good creative lyrics 7/10 Give me the meltdown was the song that almost was going to be his first single it was between this and her diamonds but this another def one of the best on cd with everything from great beat guitar to lyrics and a chorus that always gets me singing another 10/10 Someday starts with some piano and sounds more like his older album has good lyrics and is relaxing always good to listen 7/10 Mocking bird love the lyrics of this one, really hits so many relationships problems and has a very catchy chorus 9/10 real world 09 one of my favorites on the cd i can listen to this one over and over again at first didnt know but i couldnt get it out of my head later in the day and now love it one of the more upbeat songs 10/10 Fire on the mountain more of the slower ballad of songs long intro and is just a very chill song with a nice heavy chorus 7/10 Hard on you is possible my favorite on the album right after the first listen i couldnt get the song out of my head from the way it start to its layout with a one time middle of song chorus it just all works out and i love the intro 10/10 Still ain't over you heavier more rock song not fav but still like 7/10 Natural another song thats not fav but is still good cool bass line and chill rock catchy chorus line 7/10 Snowblind more of the acoustic ballad really like listening to this one chorus is great starts slow and builds up by the end 8/10 wonderful havent listened to this one as much as others for some reason i just pass it up just never got into it has a cool riffs and if you listen to lyrics like all his songs they are really good though so still a 7/10 Cradlesong heres another favorite from the album could listen to this one over and over again more of the acoustic ballad time of rob thomas builds up throughout but never gets to heavy great lyrics 10/10 getting late lovee the guitar and beat and everything for this song it gets me swinging even though its a very acoustic relaxed song great way to end album 10/10 Overall album is def worth every penny my favorite songs are Hard on you, real world 09, give me the meltdown, cradlesong, and of course her diamonds, and snowblind but the whole album is worth it! thank you rob thomas for this album! everysong is worth listening too and buying! Hard on You

Wonderful.

I was fortunate enough to get a listen to this album early and I feel like this is Rob Thomas at his best. I have always been a fan of everything he has done, but this record is original and full of amazing contagious hooks. Do yourself a favor and buy this record.
