5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 20 July 2009
Format: Audio CD
From the gently off-kilter chimes at the beginning
of opening track 'Her Diamonds' to the gently lilting
acoustic refrain of final number 'Getting Late'
Mr Thomas's new album 'Cradlesong' is a welcome treat.

He has the eighties in his blood but with the help of just
a little magic dust the music trancends its influences and
delivers 14 fresh and sparkling left-of-centre pop winners.

Mr Thomas has an ear for a good tune (the other serves him well
for equally good choruses !); a smidgen of country here
('Cradlesong'), a spoonful of gospel there ('Someday') but
always with a light touch and a refreshing absence of irony.

If a little old-fashioned in the nicest possible way the
album as a whole is never less than musically satisfying.

The voice is an attractive tenor with just a little warm
vibrato scattered here and there at the ends of phrases.

Mr Serletic's production serves the music well, as do
the massed forces of sympathetic musicians recruited
to the project. Mr Thomas leads from the front thoughout.

There really isn't a bad song on the album.

A special mention, however, belongs to 'Mockingbird',
an uplifting anthem with a great refrain, redolent of
the work of Alan Tarney (a great 80's writer/producer).
It's a big, full-bodied, widescreen epic.

'Fire On The Mountain', too, is a song with a
clear vision and powerful message.

My personal favorite is 'Someday', which will doubtless pin
me down as a big old softie - but I don't care. I love it!

A splendid little album in all sorts of ways.
A big little album in fact.

Recommended.

This album is absolutely fantastic. Rob's voice is as strong as ever, and if anything, the lyrics are stronger. As far as I'm concerned, "Fire On the Mountain" may be the best song he's ever written, and that's saying a lot for this man. It has incredibly powerful lyrics, a driving drum beat and evocative imagery. Not one weak song, and less poppy than Something To Be... There's also a strong 80s influence on some of the tracks - it's a good thing! Great drums on many of the tracks too, good guitars, keyboards... Brilliant work Rob - now I can't wait to see it live!

Well, this is very diferent than his first solo album, I didn't like it much, but this is almost a Matchbox Twenty comeback. If I didn't know that this is solo album, I would think for sure this would be the new Matchbox songs. Rob is great here and so is the band, the songs are consistent and romantic, it's a great return and I was missing this voice! Very good album, buy it if you love Matchbox Twenty!

Rob Thomas is back with a strong second solo album.

There is definitely a more mature, more serious undertone to this album than his first solo offering. There is definitely much more of a Matchbox Twenty feel, but Rob Thomas' vocals are, as always, spot on with feeling and emotion.

'Her Diamonds' feels hauntingly personal, 'Give me the Meltdown' and 'Fire on the Mountain' rocking out, and 'Snowbound' and 'Craddlesong' beautiful ballads.

Highly recommended if you like thoughtful, introspective, personal music.

Rob Thomas is back! and it was totally worth the wait for this new material. Not only is his writing as strong as ever but so is his voice. Instant favourites of mine are Wonderful, Snowblind, Still ain't over you, Natural and Gasoline. But in all honesty there isn't a track i dislike, not one i'd skip over to the next song. I've no doubt when Rob tours the album in the states, that these tracks will sound amazing live. My only hope is that here in the u.k we get the same opportunity. The man's a songwriting genius!

I've been a Matchbox fan through most of their career and Rob Thomas' solo work was a welcome addition to his work with MB20. I'm thrilled that Rob is working solo while still working with MB20...giving us die-hard fans new work more often! This album is fantastic. It's full feel-good, heartfelt, catchy soft-rock tunes. I recently read that Rob's one of the most successful songwriters of the decade, and that talent is really put to good use here. It's a terrific album, very similar to those from MB20 but leaning that little bit further towards pop compared to the earlier Matchbox albums. An absolute must for any Matchbox Twenty fan - there gems on this album in particular include Her Diamonds, Gasoline, Real World 09...there's not one song on this album that lets it down. It's truly excellent and good enough to stand alone as a solo-artist album, while also being a perfect compliment to a Matchbox Twenty playlist.

It made me smile to read one of the earlier reviews who thought this album has more of the old Matchbox 20 sound than "Something to be". To me it's the complete opposite.
After first listening I gave "Cradlesong" 4 stars but have now had to change it to 5. Rob Thomas is back - different, possibly more mature(?) sound and oh so good. Wonderful mix of tracks, from the brilliantly suggestive drums on "Real World" to Matchbox sound-alike "Still ain't over you" and singalong-friendly "Snowblind" which sticks to the brain like superglue. And, as the icing on the cake, Robs voice must surely be the sexiest around! :)
