5.0 out of 5 stars Matthew more than Good! 6 Sep 2003
Format:Audio CD
I first came across Matthew Goods music just idley downloading a few songs on the internet, I came across a song called Weapon. I listened to it, and a minute into the song I had just experienced one of the stand out musical moments of my life.
I had to have his album immediately, and bought it mere hours after listening to Weapon, I did worry that the album as a whole might not live up to the prescedent that Weapon had set. But on listening to such gems as Pledge of Allegiance, 21st Century Living and the epic While We Were Hunting Rabbits and House of Smoke & Mirrors all my fears were laid to rest. A powerhouse of an album, with intelligent thoughtful lyrics that actually have something to say, beautiful orchestral arrangements and the occasional kickass guitar moment or two.
Matthew Good is a little known treasure and all those who have experienced his music should be grateful for the experience. No other album has made me feel so good about life than Matthew Goods Avalanche, with people like Good in the world, it can't be all that bad.
My only gripe, the guy doesn't seem to tour outside of Canada, I want me some live Good goodness!

5.0 out of 5 stars He's done it anyone surprised?? 13 July 2004
Format:Audio CD
I've been a HUGE HUGE Matthew good Band fan since Beautiful Midnight, through Audio Of Being, and of course backtracking to the great Ghetto Astronaughts and Raygun cd's. So when this album was released in March of 2003 needless to say it was an immediate buy. Why i never reviewed it before, i just don't know. But here we go.
Fans of MGB have held their collective breathe since the apparent end, with the collapse of the band during the recording of Audio Of Being, but you can't keep a "good" man down. He promised he'd be back, a new band later, and he has realed of one of THE finest albums ever written. Lyrically, musically, vocally, this is just an epic journey, hurtling along at break neck speed, then slowing down as it peaks and then drops to hit full speed again. There is nothing quite like a record made by Matthew Good, and there has never been a song like Avalanche before. It's just a mnasterpiece, there is no other way to describe it. Slow repeated lyrics take you to the foot of the mountain, u climb up through verses and then BOOM A-A-A-A-A-A-A-AAAAAAAAAAVALAAAAAAAAAANNNCCCHHHHHHHEEEEEEEEEEEEEE starts inside of YOU. it's incredible, the music takes ypu places you never thought music possibly could.
From the opening line "this is a commercial for my army and my navy" of 'Pledge of Allegance" to the final, stretched out emotional "you can see right through me" of 'House of Smoke And Mirrors' this cd is just incredible and takes you anywhere it feels like. You really can't explain what a Matthew Good album sounds like or what a track does to you, to a person who has never heard it, but anyone that hears it will take something unique from the experience. It's just that special.#
There isn't even a GOOD track on this album, the worst track is AMAZING!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Matthew Good returns better then good.... 20 May 2003
Format:Audio CD
After leaving behind Matthew Good Band, Matthew Good makes his monumental return. This has to be the best album to date from Canada's forman of alternative rock. Sweeping melodies and powerful songs, this album makes for one one of the best albums I've heard this year. With stand out songs like Pledge Of Allegiance, Avalance, 21st Century Living and Near Fantastica. The style remains in the same tone as Matthew Good Band, but the songs seem tighter and more refined, creating a great overall album. Where as MGB albums in the past had a few low points, Avalanche is just a constant wave of great and even greater songs.
We can but hope for more album's from Matthew Good in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Completely snowbound 27 April 2003
Format:Audio CD
Matthew Good was one of those great finds on a ski trip to Canada way back in 1999. It is rare that the release of a new album makes me so excited but after hearing 'The Audio Of Being' (his previous record with the Matthew Good Band which you should also purchase) I ordered this album as soon as it became available. Disappointment (as is so often the case with such high expectations) was never so easily avoided. This is one of those albums that does not contain a single duff track (like Gene's 'Drawn To The Deep End', Counting Crows' 'August and Everything After' or Radiohead's 'The Bends').
If you enjoy intelligent indie-rock (or whatever the name of the pigeon hole is this week) that continually surprises with each new listen or just albums that deal with something a little more than 'Boy Meets Girl And It All Goes Right / Wrong / Upside Down' then this is for you.
You can thank me later.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome album, awesome band 5 Feb 2004
Format:Audio CD
I came across this band in Canada a few years ago and when i got home i couldn't find any of their stuff and i casually forgot about them. About 3 months ago i purchased Beautiful Midnight which is an amazing album but having purchased Avalanche I've been completely blown away. Never have a band gripped me so much as Matthew Good and Co. My standout track of this album is Double Life but in all honesty there is no bad song on the album. They are beautiful in their own way. I'd recommed this to anyone and everyone in the hope that they can eventually play in Britain. That they are not here already is a travesty!! Every song, from Pledge Of Allegiance to H.O.S.A.M are crafted with genious! Buy it now!
