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.

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.
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.
