Customer Review

on 16 February 2003
Mention Matchbox20 to most people and they'll stare at you as if you just asked them to describe Einstein's Theory of Relativity,but mention them to a select few and you will notice a distinctly different reaction - eyes lighting up, a smile spreading across their face - and when you hear the band's previous albums, you'll understand why.
For me, they are the greatest band the UK will ever hear about for a long time yet, and their latest album is the best one they have produced so far.
Taking a radical change of direction from the softer tones of "Yourself or Someone Like You" and "Mad Season", "More Than You Think You Are" settles for a more rock-orientated sound, although they do put in some very nice ballads such as "Unwell", quite possibly the first song i know about being crazy, and the rather emotional "The Difference", but whether you listen to the ballads or the harder tracks - of which "Disease" and "Feel" are but two - you will notice the band's usual unstoppable energy, and the penchant for build-ups they've had since "Mad Season".
This album, like its predecessors, manages to display a wide range of emotion in each song - there's joy, love, hate, pain, and in the case of "You're So Real" - the album's most energetic track - pure lunacy.
So, to sum it up - this album has emotion, it has ballads, it has rock, but more than that it has the great sound that makes it unmistakeably Matchbox20, and the raw energy that suffuses everything they do.
If you liked the previous two albums, you need this like you need air. Get it, and get it now.
