iTunes Editors’ Notes

Released in late 1996, Matchbox Twenty’s debut release Yourself or Someone Like You went on to sell over 12 million copies worldwide, making them one of the most popular rock bands of the late ‘90s. This wide appeal is easy to understand given the band’s emphasis on crunchy guitars, big choruses, memorable riffs and, most significantly, the impassioned vocals of Rob Thomas, the lead singer and principal songwriter. Thomas possesses a powerful voice that easily shifts from silky smooth to aching growl, and more than anything it’s his distinct vocals that give Matchbox Twenty their signature sound. Striking the right balance between studio polish and raw energy, the album is filled with catchy melodies that are easy to sing along with and the hooks to back them up. Most of the songs are up-tempo fist-pumpers, but there are a few slow burners that showcase the band’s softer side as well. Ultimately, Yourself or Someone Like You works well because it’s modeled on the kind of guitar-based classic rock that just doesn’t get old — particularly when it’s done this well. This Deluxe Version contains three bonus tracks.

Love it too!!!

Another Absolutely AMAZING Album!!! :]

Great memories

Got back into this after hearing Their latest 'North'. Wow, what a great album! Great in the 90s and even better now with most albums on the radar now being junk. Awesome guitar rhythms, melodies and songs you still find on the radio. Not one weak track. Buy it! This is timeless.

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...
