5.0 out of 5 stars Too good to ignore any longer, 6 April 2010
This review is from: Some Mad Hope (Audio CD)
Matt Nathanson is just too good to be ignored outside of the US. Some Mad Hope shows a logical progression in music from his early albums. Both the lyric and melody of every song are compeling and memorable. From the crashing guitar of Car Crash and Detroit Waves, songs with brilliant jangly guitars reminiscent of U2, to the tenderness of Come on Get Higher (as heard on American Idol) and Falling Apart. On CD he is like David Gray, mixed with Dave Matthews, and Ben Folds. I also here Counting Crows in there a lot, and you will hear Counting Crows in other places like on his live album. That's where you will get to know the true Matt Nathanson when you listen to his live album in his back catalogue. However you should start here with Some Mad Hope and work backwards through that back catalog. That process will give you a sense of discovery as you find someone new initially, then find out they have numerous previous albums for you to explore and love.
