I've decided to make this review because I couldn't believe that only two persons reviewed this brilliant album. I'm a huge fan of Matthew Good for a long time and I have all his albums (solo and with the Good Band), and I can assure you that this is simply a masterpiece put together by MG. It holds one of the best songs ever by MG imho, "Black Helicopter".

Even better than Avalanche - which is some going. A Single Explosion is absolutely perfect.

Matt Good's latest solo album written after a difficult period in his life is reflected in the sometimes dark nature of the lyrics beginning with Champions of Nothing. The music unpredictably becomes up-beat particularly on The Boy Come Home and Born Losers. Hospital Music is just what the doctor ordered. Matt Good fans, and any fans of rock, should not hesitate to buy this.

HASH(0xa023021c) out of 5 stars Stunned... 7 Aug. 2007
By warrian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I waited months to review Matthew Good's previous full length album "White Light Rock and Roll Review" because despite the fact that I knew it was good, I didn't really connect with it the way I did his earlier works. The reason I waited so long was I wanted to make sure my reaction wasn't through an impatience on my part to let the album do its work on me as a listener. I had then, and still have a faith in Good as an artist to bring something new across in his music that exists somewhere outside my expectations. I did have some clue as to what this new album "Hospital Music" was going to be about, as I tend to follow musicians whose work excites me pretty closely. Nothing however could prepare me for what I heard when I first put "Hospital Music" in the CD player the other night. I'm writing this review after having only listened this CD twice in its entirety because I feel as an answer to my last review, I owe it to the artist to try and capture some sliver of the emotional reaction I'm having to this. Indeed, this set of songs and their delivery put "WLRaRR" itself in a whole new light. It's hard to imagine this album being quite so effective had that one not existed. His sound here is raw like on that record (raw like an exposed nerve) but he doesn't shy away from the majesty and drama of his earlier releases either. What makes "Hospital Music" truly transcendent though is the openness and honesty on display. Some of this actually hurts to listen to. Besides being in awe of his craft and his almost singular ability to constantly wrap difficult and intellectual phrasing around instantly memorable and seductive hooks, the allure of Good for me has been in the way he always seems to express how I feel about certain things far better and with more resonance than I am able to myself. Maybe that last part is what attracts me to most music for that matter. This album doesn't do that much. This album is so intensely personal (and specifically personal) that it can be very hard to relate to. However, in denying me that, it actually takes me a step further. It inspires an intense empathy that words frankly fail to do justice, and I can't think of a better compliment to any work of art. "WLRaRR" showed that Matthew Good could do low-fi, songwriter-centric rock just as good as anyone. "Hospital Music" however puts him back on a path of doing the best work imaginable in way that very, very few are able to. It's one of the best rock albums I've heard in ages, and I thank him for it.

HASH(0xa2a063f0) out of 5 stars Picking up where "Rooms" left off 10 Aug. 2007
By Chad Mannlein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I appreciate artists who mature and and evolve rather than those who continually try to sound like, well, themselves. Good has produced his most lyrically honed record with poetic flashes of brilliance as in "Champions of Nothing." Each Matt Good solo record sounds very different from its predecessors. If you are a fan of Good's slower songs and or acoustic recordings (which I am not) then this is THE Matt Good record for you. If you like his heavier and faster songs such as "Oh Be Joyful" then you will be initially disappointed. As a live performance I believe this record would be very moving and much more powerful to someone who shares my tastes. "Hospital Music" is not the record I expected and I appprecitate the fresh surpise as it grows on me with each listen--especially the beautiful cover of the Dead Kennedys "Moon Over Marin." I cannot criticize it for having a bad song in its contents. However, this is not a record that will throw you back and forth as "Avalanche" or rock you with a heavy bluesy sound such as "White Light." This record is slow and meditative as its title impies. Kudos on another great record Mr. Good.

I've heard some dark material from Mr.Good in the past but this album is easily his most personal and introspective. "Hospital Music" is Good's follow up to the excellent and old school rock influenced "White Light Rock and Roll Review". "Hospital Music" is even more of a throwback for Good as he goes back to his Pre Matthew Good Band solo work writting style. Good isn't shy about exercising his demons on this album. One of the many things I love him for. On "Hospital Music" Good has written tracks about his recent overdose, suicide attempt and divorce. Good articulates these experiences into beautiful and painfully rueful songs that you can't stop listening to. They seem to haunt you in a way. But not is all somber and bleak. Like all Good albums there is a devilish sense of humor and a determination to persevere through it all. If you've never heard Matthew good before, you're in for a real treat. He is the most witty, talented and brutally honest song writer(also one of the most underrated and overlooked) working today. If you're not a fan, you will be soon.

HASH(0xa0a7f600) out of 5 stars A wonderful journey. A deep, dark moving album. Wonderfully powerfull 22 Aug. 2007
By Tristan Lopez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Im not a hardcore Matthew Good fan but I love his music. While I think his music is good from when he was in "band". It's his solo cd's I am in love with. Avalanche was an incredible album. White Light Rock & Roll was great, but a bit of a step down from Avalnche. And now here comes Hospital Music. I was so psyched to finally get this cd. Upon putting it in the cd player and listening to it for the first time I was confused/disapointed. Wondering what in the hell I just listened to. I thought the album sucked. Yet at the same time it struck thru my head and I listened to it again. This time a few tracks here and there stood out. Within the third listen I realized what an incredible, deep, dark, great album this really was. I now like every track on the cd. It's not one of those cd's you just pop in and find all the awesome tracks. It grows on you and you soon start to be entranced by it. Matthew good has created another solid great cd just as good as Avalanche. Consider Avalanche the sunny albumm and Hospital Music the night album. Hospital Music is a great album. Definitely moody and you really feel and are captivated by the words and dark tones in this album. I definitely recommend this album out there. You won't be disappointed. I can't stop listening to it.

HASH(0xa12b9c24) out of 5 stars New, yet tired, simultaneously 20 May 2008
By N Pfeifer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For me, "Avalanche" was the pinnacle of Matthew Good's solo career, coming off the incredibly strong "The Audio of Being". "Avalanche" was a perfect juxtaposition of excellent production values brought into place with Good's pessimistic worldview; a searing soundscape that put you in your place and held you there.

Swearing off the production values of "Avalanche", instead settling on a bit more of an acoustic set, Good produced "White Light Rock and Roll Review" which was a bit of a departure from his legendary trademark sound. It seems like a chunk of his audience didn't quite latch on (myself included) and he tries to make up a bit for it here in "Hospital Music".

While I had originally anticipated it to be my favorite album of 2007, many listens later, it seems to me that Good needs to reboot himself again. Like "The Audio of Being", Matt once again found himself in a complex maze of perscription drugs, betrayal (he divorced his wife between albums) and an emotional divide within him.

The album is spectacular end-to-end, but "Hospital Music" touches on a lot of themes that Good has tackled before in more interesting ways. Tying these desperate and depressing poems is a compromised sound half-way between his Canadian cowboy twang present in "White Light Rock and Roll Review" and more epic, harmonious sounds of "Avalanche" that doesn't quite do justice to either, but it hits a stride in a few tracks.

Personal highlights include the harrowing "99% of Us Is Failure" and the uplifting "The Boy Come Home". Another unique addition to this album is the inclusion of two quirky, short consecutive tracks (roughly a minute each) -- "Girl Wedged Under The Front of The Firebird" and "I Am Not Safer Than A Bank" -- which are probably the most fun and unique sounds here, but are sadly never elaborated on.

For Matthew Good fans, this is certainly a must-own, but you'll feel like you've been here before.
