EDITORS’ NOTES

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.

Wonderful

I have loved this band since I was 8 years old. I am now 19 going on 20 and i still love this band. I am soo thankful that they have decided to put out a new album. The new album is absolutely wonderful. The lyrics touched my heart and the music made me wanna either dance or cry. Love this album and I love Matchbox Twenty.

Eeesh.

Look, I'm a big fan of these guys. They headlined the first concert I ever went to (Rose Garden, Portland OR, 2001). I've been waiting ten years for a proper follow up to the excellent Yourself or Someone Like You. North just isn't it. "Parade," "The Way" and "Radio" are fantastic, but everything else sounds like Rob Thomas solo fodder. Musical "evolution" is fine and all, but why change overall sound with your fourth album in a long 16 year career? Tune down the keys, guys, let Kyle Cook play his guitar a wee bit louder and remind everyone why your debut record was the one of the best albums of the mid-90s.
