Awesome as usual!, Jun 3 2011
I first heard the Matthew Good band in 1998 and I have been addicted to his music ever since. Even after the band broke up and he decided to go on his own I stuck with him. I also was a big fan of Moist during this era and even though I really liked David Usher when he went on his own I have not been so loyal. Matthew Good's music changed and he grew as a musician and he has produced some unbelievably great music since the band split up. I remember feeling sad when the band broke up because I knew this usually means that the music I love will be gone now. Matthew Good surprised me though! Some things he did with his music I loved and others I didn't, but the point is that he has constantly CREATED music that is unique and a true reflection of himself and his feelings. After Beautiful Midnight he could have easily started creating music based on a formula and he would probably be better off financially and fame wise for it. I for one am glad that he did not sell out like so many other bands and musicians.
This album is not what I expected and that is why I really love it. This albums is awesome because Matt has tried new things and some things I like and others I don't, but what remains true is the music quality and Matthew Good's awesome voice! This guy can sing and his voice is just awesome. Non Populous is my favourite song on this album! Just a great album once again and I can't wait to go see him perform live!!!
