Product Description

Amazon.ca

Florida's megaplatinum matchbox twenty prove with their third album to be far more versatile than expected, comfortably outlasting the predictions of naysayers. Reuniting with producer Matt Serletic, the quintet takes credible swings at gospel ("Downfall" features a choir), Traveling Wilburys-type twang ("All I Need"), and big-arena rock with "Disease," cowritten by singer Rob Thomas and Mick Jagger and winkingly recalling Thomas's star turn with Carlos Santana on "Smooth." Pedal-steel great Greg Leisz spruces up several tracks, notably the tearjerker "Hand Me Down," while producer and keyboardist Serletic and percussionist Paul Doucette sprinkle instrumental pixie dust. More Than You Think You Are isn't likely to appease critics, who have consistently accused matchbox twenty of yelling when a whisper would do, but fans of the group are certain to dig these panoramic songs, each drawn in broad, vivid strokes. --Kim Hughes

By Mike
Format:Audio CD
The multi-platinum recording group matchbox twenty has returned strongly with this new disc "More Than You Think You Are." The songs on this album reflect the heart and soul of the band, Rob Thomas, and the journey he has endured as a songwriter. Thomas is not alone on this journey though, as lead guitarist Kyle Cook and drummer Paul Doucette contribute songwriting credits on this diverse disc. Song by song the cd plays out like this:
1. Feel- 7/10 rating (Written by Thomas, Cook, and Doucette)
This song utilizes strong guitar riffs and forceful lyrics that drive home a rockin sound. Unlike most of the other softer songs on the album, but still good.
2. Disease- 8/10 rating (Written by Thomas and Mick Jagger)
The first single off the album, this song was cowritten by Mick Jagger and enjoyed radio success on both the Billboard 100 and the Hot Adult Contemporary charts.
3. Bright Lights- 10/10 rating (written by Thomas)
Beautiful piano track that fully emphasizes the beauty of both Thomas' lyrics and voice. Reportedly will be the third single off the album.
4. Unwell- 10/10 rating (Written by Thomas)
This song starts with a banjo and is one of the most musically unique tracks that matchbox has ever put out. anyone can relate to this song.
5. Cold - 9/10 rating (written by Thomas and producer Matt Serletic)
Another rockin song with a catchy chorus. Best rock song that matchbox has done since "Bent"
6. All I Need- 8/10 rating (written by Thomas)
Catchy tune with a great hook. Another new sound for matchbox.
7. Hand Me Down- 8/10 rating (written by Thomas)
Beautiful song, another ballad that anyone can relate to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shazam! March 18 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is now one of my favorite albums in the world, no question. I have always been a huge Matchbox fan, but I see a lot of growth in this album. There has always been a divide between Matchbox 20 bitter rock songs like 'crutch' and Matchbox 20 ballads like 'shame', but here they blend. Rob Thomas's edgy vocals haunt the songs and give them power, but there is still a much greater depth and soul than what you hear on the radio right now. Matchbox 20 has finally defied the limits of genre music, and the result has been a collection of definitively Matchbox songs. I adore it.

4.0 out of 5 stars More than you'll think it would be Nov. 24 2003
By Chaz
Format:Audio CD
Ever since matchbox released If your gone i've been a fan. Although some of their music is sometimes too soppy the majority is brilliant. And this album does not dissapoint. Although this is not the usual genre of music i listen to i still enjoy MB20.So buy it even if you do not like this type of music, you will find something in it for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Their best Album yet Dec 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
I was pleasantly surprised upon first listen of this album. I didnt think it would be as good as MATCHBOX 20's previous efforts.
I was wrong.
This album is very good from start to finish.
UNWELL is one of those songs that you never get sick of hearing no matter how many times you hear it on the radio. The second single BRIGHT LIGHTS is a nice change of pace and is a very good song live.
My favorite songs on the album is the uptempo rocker ALL I NEED and the well crafted DOWNFALL which I am hoping will be a single in 2004.
Buy this album, you will enjoy it from start to finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome CD, fav buy July 6 2005
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD on a whim, I knew a number of singles that had been released from this disc, and saw it and bought it. I am not disappointed. Songs that I already knew like Bright Lights and Unwell are still awesome, and pretty much every other song on the CD has become a favorite too. Cold is an awesome song with a strong beat and a great tune. My least favorite would have to be Hand Me Down, simply becuase it seems kinda slow and I'm not fond of the country-like opening. However, it's still a great listen, and none of the songs are ones that I'll skip over. Very impressed with my first MB20 album, I'm looking forward to more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stands up to multiple listenings Dec 21 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I've had this CD for a couple of years and I still listen to it at least once a week! I bring it along with me to the gym, in the car and listen to it at home. It excites me every time I listen to it and it's DEFINITELY an album that you can just press play and let it go...no skipping of songs required! I recommend it to any Matchbox 20 fan or to anyone who has a passion for good music!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Singles, Ok Album July 6 2004
By Person
Format:Audio CD
Matchbox 20 released a lot of singles off of this album. I really enjoyed the ones they picked. I couldn't wait to get the album. I got it but, I wasn't impressed. The only good songs were the singles which were all overplayed besides "Downfall". Really, you would be better off listening to the radio, but, you would like a few songs that weren't singles. It's worth the money, but it's not the best of Matchbox 20.
