Product Description


There aren't actually 20 of them, although it does occasionally sound that way. With only one previous album, Matchbox 20 front man Rob Thomas has already racked up three Grammy Awards, while his band was chosen as Rolling Stone magazine's Best New Band, having sold over 10 million copies of their debut by the close of 1999. Although hailing from Orlando, Florida, there's nothing Mickey Mouse about the band's muscular rock sound--what really impresses about Mad Season By Matchbox Twenty is that, despite the depth of emotion that oozes from their tracks, they never forget that a good song needs a good tune and lyrics which, although often thoughtful, can be immediately grasped by anyone. The distinctive vocal harmonies of Thomas and Adam Gaynor, combined with chiming twin-guitar lines from Gaynor and Kyle Cook gives them a unique sonic identity, placing them in line to become--eventually--another Bon Jovi. Meanwhile, though, there's more than enough rough edges and passionate moments to avoid any accusations of selling-out to AOR. --Johnny Black

1.0 out of 5 stars Dissatified CD Doesn't play properly March 2 2014
By Karen
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The CD doesn't play properly and you can't listen to it. There is obviously something wrong with it and I would like a replacement that works please! How do I contact the seller in order to make this happen? I'm sure the music on the cd is good, I f only I could listen to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A stepping stone Dec 19 2006
Format:Audio CD
I listened to Matchbox Twenty constantly in high school because they offered me something real; catchy melodies and intelligent songwriting are a part of any Matchbox Twenty album, but are particularly bold and unique on their sophomore "Mad Season by Matchbox Twenty". I was thoroughly impressed, even before I was 18, at Rob Thomas' depth. Every song reflects lost love in its purest, most subjective form, particularly on my favorite track, "Rest Stop" in which Rob is dumped by a girl in the middle of the highway after she "listens to the radio and wonders what he's dreaming then realizes she doesn't care". Ouch. This album is a real piece of nostalgia for me and takes me right back to grade eleven; it's always been a big part of my life (as have all the Matchbox Twenty releases, which I was addicted to for almost three years and listened to non-stop) and hopefully it will (or already is) a big part of yours too. Highly recommended, despite its slightly dated sound.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mad Season April 6 2005
By The One
Format:Audio CD
I like this album, but it's the type of album that I only play once in a long while. What I like about this record and what really shines on it, is the lyrics. Rob's song writing skills really show good on this album. It's worth buying, but I recommend buying their debut and third release first.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! July 16 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Okay, first let me tell you that matchbox twenty is a band unparralelled by any band of the past or present. seriously don't think any artist will match what they have done. Second, I don't think there will ever be a greatest hits collection because if there were it would have to be a three disc or more set featuring every song they have ever written. There is not a bad song in there library. If you don't have all of the CD's, buy them on amazon or at a store. You won't be let down. The CD starts off fast with the wonderful "Angry" which is only preparing you for what is to come. It is one of the weakest songs on the album, but it starts the album perfectly and. Then comes the incredible "Black and white people which completely destroys "Angry" This song should have been a single, and is one of the best songs on the album, or of the last fifty years. Following it up is "crutch", which is kind of like the sequel to "angry" to, and proves to be about the same in the goodness area. Then, just when you think the rest of the album might be like track's one and three, "Last beautiful girl" comes on and then you are truly hooked to the end of the album. This is another one of the best. Then comes one of the three songs on the album that everyone knows. "If your gone" is a fantastic and moving ballad. It was the third song off the album released as a single. It is really good, but nothing will prepare you for what comes next. "Mad season" the title track and the second song release as a single is possibly the best song on the album, and one of matchbox twenty's best. It is such a great upbeat masterpiece, that if you don't like it, you should get airlifted to the closest medical center because something its wrong with you. Read more ›

Being a huge fan of matchbox twenty after their first album, I of course was in the store on the day Mad Season came out. The first time I listened to it, I was immensely unimpressed. This was nothing like the sound Matchbox 20 had generated. Certainly, it was Thomas' voice, but it was a way different sound, and I didn't like it.
But I kept listening. Quickly I realized that some of the distracting blues horn or piano in many of the songs only added to the songwriting brilliance of the songs' lyrics. That whole summer I didn't need one other album, I could find so much in Mad Season. Day after day I found something new and great about the album. This also gets thrown around too much, but now I absolutely love every song on the album, and pop rock really isn't my thing. But this album is a MASTERPIECE.
1. Angry- Begins with an unfamiliar electric riff that totally violates all previous assumptions about the band. The song really sets the tone for the album, light-sounding, but, when analyzed closely, a really deep emotional expression for Thomas.
2. Black and White People- Brilliant lyrics. The horns at the start are sort of stupid, but they grow on you, and the lyrics, as aforementioned, are awesome. There are vague statements about racial unity, and everything else is an emotional scape of life in general.
3. Crutch- Gets a lot of respect and really deserves it for its rough and twangy sound. A good tune that will gradually start to annoy you.
4. Last Beautiful Girl- I would hate to be the woman who Thomas wrote this about, because the lyrics are vividly angry and condemning. Its really an uplifting song for someone going through a breakup.
5. If You're Gone- Really a good love song.

I bought this CD only because I love the other two MB20 CDs and I didn't have this one. I love the first six songs, but after that they all sort of sound the same. Read more
