Melisma/Atlantic recording artist Matchbox Twenty is ready to rock with their eagerly anticipated third album, MORE THAN YOU THINK YOU ARE. Produced by matchbox twenty's longtime studio collaborator Matt Serletic, the new album - which features the hit single, "Disease" - was recorded at Bearsville Studios in Woodstock, New York and at The Hit Factory in New York City. "This is probably the most rockin' record we've ever done," says the band's lead singer/songwriter Rob Thomas, "Because we've been working with Greg Collins, who's engineered bands like System of a Down and Red Hot Chili Peppers, and mixer Jim Scott, who's worked with people like Wilco and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers. But at the same time, there's a warmness to the record, a real organic quality that I just love."
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

Matchbox Twenty's second sophomore effort "Mad Season", really impressed me with smooth and mainstream music but not as much as "More Than You Think You Are". Read morePublished on June 13 2004 by Nic
