Product Description

Amazon.ca

The sound of Southern rock gets a facelift for the 1990s on Yourself or Someone Like You, the record that made Florida's Matchbox 20 a success story. Rob Thomas's charismatic and passionate vocal delivery carries this collection of captivating, personal-story songs, based on honest, heart-felt lyrics rich with cathartic emotion. Anyone who's felt so scarred by love that they can't imagine taking the chance of getting hurt again will relate to a song like "Push" (an exhilarating feminist anthem disguised as just another relationship-on-the-rocks song). A much-needed break from the alternative pack. --Gail Worley

4.0 out of 5 stars Yourself Or Someone Like You April 2 2005
By The One
Format:Audio CD
This album was like my first album to own as my collection started to grow. I got this album about 8 years ago, and it's a classic. Rob Thomas is an outstanding song writer, and he gave us all a preview of what was to come later on. This is a great rock album. It has a mellow side to it, with deep emotional lyrics with "Hang". It also has a straight up rock n roll side to it with "Push" and also a post grunge type of feel to it with the song "Busted". This is one of the few albums in which has a variety of different styles.

I feel compelled to write a review here to counteract everyone else who seems to have just bought the album within the last year. This is a great rock album, and if you want to know what matchbox twenty is about, this is your album. However, as someone who has followed the progress of this band since '96 when this album came out, I have to say, I enjoy their 2nd and 3rd albums a little more. This is not to imply that it's not worth listening to from time to time, but I feel as if Rob Thomas' songwriting skills don't hit their peak until Mad Season.
But, seeing as none of my friends understand why this is my third favorite band, most likely because the first two are Coldplay and Radiohead, I should probably advocate buying this album.
1. Real World- A great intro to the album. Musically, it gets overrun later on, however.
2. Long Day- Really an interesting song, since it briefly put the band on the map in the thrash rock genre. A lot of soulful lyrics in this one.
3. 3 AM- The most popular song on the album, it's worth a listen to and plays well with people at parties if you're just picking up a guitar, but gets old after a while.
4. Push- Totally underrated, it's one of matchbox twenty's best songs ever. It's controversial because some say that the lyrics imply sexual abuse, but Thomas claims this is not the case. A great tune and if anyone gets their hands on the acoustic version, they will love it even more.
5. Girl Like That- A little obnoxious, but it grows on you.
6. Back 2 Good- Really an awesome song, it lays down the foundations for some of their better depressing ballads. Great considering how it stands out in the middle of the album, keeping a listener's attention with it's sad lyrics.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME March 26 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the best CDs I own. I bought it because I loved "Unwell" and "Disease" but when I got it I saw how many other great tracks were on it. "The Difference" has very emotional lyrics that I liked, while "You're So Real" and the hidden track (about 10 seconds after "The Difference) were fun but just as enjoyable. I strongly recommend this CD to everyone. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars excelent example of 90s rock March 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
Great 90s band who is still making music today.
This cd has half a dozen great songs that you could listen to over and over again.
It is hard to catagorize: Easy rock, hard pop but basically it keeps you entertained but does not promt other people around you to turn it down.
The first 5 songs are the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the BEST MB20 CD Feb. 27 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD is awesome! This is a CD where EVERY SINGLE SONG is great! If you're a person who wants to only wants to buy one Matchbox 20 CD, this CD is the one to go with. The CD called Mad Season only had a few good songs, and the band's third CD, More than You Think You Are, is a close second to this CD.
Yourself or Someone Like You has a variety of songs, from the slower songs like "3 AM" and "Hang", to more upbeat songs like "You're so Real". The three I just mentioned are my personal favorites. The 2 most played songs from this album are "3 AM" and "Push", both excellent songs. Matchbox Twenty is great on any of their albums, but this showcases their talent the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maybe the best album of the 90's Jan. 30 2004
Format:Audio CD
This CD showcases Matchbox 20 before they became the Rob Thomas show. It's still very listenable in 2004. Only a few other albums can hold up this well from the mid to late 90's

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESEOME CD!!!!!!!!! LET'S BREAK IT DOWN! Dec 10 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the best CDs I have ever listened to. Matchbox 20 is great and this CD shows how they started out. The opening song, Real World is my favorite on the whole CD. The second song, Long Day is another classic while 3 a.m. is interesting along with the video for it. I don't like much of the songs after it though. After Back 2 Good they just songs that are single-titled with one word. Damn, Kordy, Busted, Shame, and Hame are my least favorite songs. Other then that I love this CD. Their second album is Mad Seasoon.
