This review is from: More Than You Think You Are [Us Import] (Audio CD)
As an avid Matchbox Twenty fan I was thrilled to see they had released a new album. I was a bit dubious at first as I saw it as an impossible task to better the genius that was Mad Season, however all my doubts were quashed when I first listened to this album!! Matchbox Twenty have once again delivered an eclectic mix of soul and rock producing astounding tracks such as ‘Bright Lights’ and ‘You're So Real’. The two tracks that stand out on this album are ‘Hand Me Down’, a powerfully moving ballad, and ‘Downfall’ an up-tempo number with a poignant gospel choir.
Rob Thomas has the ability to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end, using this skill in the majority of the songs. Rarely does an album come along where every song gives 100%, however, Matchbox Twenty seem to bring out albums in which every song is amazing! Suffice to say ‘More Than You Think You Are’ carries on this remarkable tradition!
