Customer Reviews

Exceptional

Although I am going to deeply miss The Matches, I'm very glad that they released this final CD. I have been waiting to hear songs such as My Doe Pt. 1 for a very long time, and to have these treasures to remember these fine fellows by is a definite treat. Every song is very characteristic of The Matches unique style. Hope they return from hiatus in the near future!

Can this really be the end?

Is this The Matches last stand? I sure as hell hope not. I can only hope that these "side projects" will be short lived and in a few years make a Blink-182 like reunion, back to where they belong. No matter what the future of The Matches is, there is one thing for sure, this album, along with every other one they made, kicks some serious a*s.

really?

Now i love the matches to death really i do. Buuuut I'd just like to say that i think this new album is just bad in comparison to their prior work. It sounds like a final attempt to make money off of a handful of half-assed songs. I really think these songs are lacking the artistic quality of quriky lyricism that i grew to love the matches for. Where's the passion behind the music? I'm just not feeling it. Also, the choruses seem way too repetative and just fill space. I really hope this isn't the note they intend to finish on... if so, I think this breakup (hopefully only a break) was much needed. Good luck to them and i hope they return with some fresh, creative inspiration.

Frustrated with the lack of under-21 venues in the Bay Area at the time, the guys took matters into their own hands, seizing a local warehouse that had been converted into a webcasting soundstage and launching a series of shows called L3: Live, Loud and Local. The band,...
