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

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 The BEST MB20 album YET! July 3 2004
By Heidi
Format:Audio CD
I cannot believe I haven't reviewd this album earlier. This is by far my favorite cd, it has been for over a year now. Matchbox Twenty's music is so versatile and they can do sooo much with their sound, it's amazing. The songwriting was great (as usual), but the special part about that, is most the members of the band contributed, it wasn't just Rob Thomas who wrote all the music. Here is my take on the tracks:
Feel: This track has a sort of "techno" feel to it, and it has a harder rock sound to it, very catchy too.
Disease: Wanna I first heard this song I wasn't sure about it, I thought it was alright. Then when I heard the accoustic version on MB20's EP, I loved it!! Then I went back to this cd and played it and I got hooked.
Bright Lights: This was one of my top three favorites on the cd, even before it was released as a single. I'm so glad it was released, it starts slow, and then it really breaks into something, awesome song.
Unwell: This song was the song that persuaded me to buy the cd. However, I got really sick of this song lol, it's a nice song, but man oh man, radio really killed it. I'm surprised they didn't play it on the country radio station, it was that popular, plus it has a country sound to it.
Cold: Average song
All I Need: It doesn't jump out at me, but it's a nice listen.
Hand Me Down: This one was my favorite on the album when I purchased it, I love the lyrics, "I'm here for the hard times, the straight to your heart times, whenever it aint' easy you can stand up against me" The arrangement is kind of fast and not flowy at first but I love the song.
Could I Be You: Average, but good song.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best yet May 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is a great CD and, yes, the best yet. Rob Thomas' voice is great, too.
1) Feel- it might take a little while to grow on you, but it's a good song 5/5
2) Disease- a great song and one of my favorites 5/5
3) Bright Lights- Great song. A good song to buy the CD for... 5/5
4) Unwell- a funny song cuz it's so true at times. A little overplayed on the radio, but great nonetheless. (only 4 cuz it's been overplayed) 4/5
5) Cold- okay, but not a winner. Worth listening to, I guess. 3/5
6) All I Need- one of my faves on the CD. I don't know why they don't play this one on the radio. A GREAT, GREAT song. 5/5
7) Hand Me Down- I love this song. It's slow. Great. 5/5
8) Could I Be You- The only song on the cd that's not written by or with Rob Thomas. A good song. Worth listening to, but not one of my faves. 3/5
9) Downfall- While I like the lyrics, I have no idea why this is the single out right now. It's the one song I just don't listen to. I don't like the gospel choir. 2/5
10) Soul- Another slow song. GREAT. 5/5
11) You're So Real- It might take a while to grow on you, but it's a great song. SO great. 1 of my favorites. 5/5
12) The Difference- Nostalgic-sounding. A good song. It might get old fast though, it did for me. 4/5
13) I Don't Want (Nobody)- A hidden track about a minute after "The Difference". The first few verses are kind of unpromising, but I LOVE this song. The lyrics/chorus and music is GREAT. One of my definite favorites. 7/5
This is a GREAT Cd. It's worth every single cent. I recomend this completely!

5.0 out of 5 stars All I Need Feb. 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
Since the release of "Yourself or Someone Like You", Matchbox Twenty has dominated the airwaves with their refreshing blend of pop and rock. The group has scored several hits, and this album is no exception. Once again, hard rock, infectious pop, and gentle ballads are present in equal number, each seeming like the band's best work.
There are many wonderful tracks on this "More Than You Think You Are", but I'm going to focus on the highlights:
'All I Need': A catchy, yet laid-back tune about finding love, this song will have you singing along in no time. Perhaps one of Rob Thomas's best vocal performances, it is an upbeat blend of pop and radio sensation.
'Cold': One of the album's harder songs, 'Cold' is about questioning a person's inconsistencies. While the verses rock like their radio hit 'Disease', the chorus is more along the lines of current smash 'Bright Lights'.
'The Difference': My favorite track from the album, 'The Difference' is truly a hidden gem. Reminiscent of something that would be sung by Bon Jovi or Bruce Springsteen, it features a truly summer-night feeling and beautiful melody.
'Bright Lights': I know, I know, if you haven't heard this song by now you've been in outer space, but this song is truly one of the group's best. The story of supporting a loved one through something you don't want them to do, it is at once tender and catchy.
Over the last few years, Matchbox Twenty have constantly raised the bar to all rock performers. Once again, they surpass their expectations, daring other artists to keep up - which is enough for me. This album is 'All I Need'.
