I went to see Matchbook Romance (an amaizng band, and is great live) last July and The Matches were opening up for them, and i all i can say is that i was blown away. They were absolutely amazing. They had so much energy and talent, and the songs were good. well, i got the CD, and i wasn't disappointed.

These have some incredibly catchy songs and some great guitar. These guys are like no band out there right now, they completely stand out. There are even some great solos (see "Sick Little Suicide". Really good) stuck in there. They have a harmonizing thing where they have two singers (the two guitarists) singing, and it sounds really good (See "Chain Me Free"). The lyrics (emo influenced) are very funny ( See "Say 18" and "Eryn Smith") and the songs range in styles, drawing influences from all over the place. Over all, these guys are just a very unique band, that is very talented, and worth your time, not matter what your style of music is.

The best songs are: "Chain Me Free", "Audio Blood", "More than Local Boys", "Sick Little Suicide", "Jack Slap Cheer", and the reason i wrote this review "Scrathced Out". This is the last song and it is acoustic, and is undescribable by words, it is just that good. The harmonizing is in it, going back in forth between each singer, and as the Verses go on, they slowly get faster and begin to build in intensity, and they stop, go to the chorus, and then repeat it. It is just amazing.

So, overall, if you are looking for something new, fresh, and just plain good, go pick up The Matches, and then go see them live.

The Matches is the kind of band everyone should watch, not only do I think they will become a huge sensation in the next few years, I think their material will be looked at closer. This is one of those reviews.

The Matches first album, E. Von Dahl Killed The Locals (title comes from the man who made them change their name from The Locals to The Matches), is a modest pop-punk album. It's lyrics are well written and well sung, if not very deep. The album is the self-biography of the band, and mixed in there are the required girlfriend (or lack therefor of) complaints and social this-has-to-be-the-end-of-my-life ideas and dramas of an 18 year old.

While a great first time effort, the main problem is that E. Von Dahl lacks any variety or musical depth that other major bands produce. I'd recomend this album to many people, but I can't see this being their best work.

I saw these guys at warped tour and i was blown away. I knew they were good, i had the cd, but after seeing them play, i had a new respect for them. They had so much energy, Shawn's voice was flawless, the guitars sounded perfect, and you could tell the entire audience was digging it. My favorite songs on the CD are Chain Me Free, Audio Blood, Sick Little Suicide, and the untitled track. This is worth your money, and you will not be let down. If you ever get a chance, go to one of their shows. It is nothing short of amazing.

THE MATCHES cd is awseome and their live performances are out of this world. The band members are also the coolest guys and love talking to their fans after their shows. Every song on this cd is excellent and I usually never like every song on a cd. Their sound is unique which is what makes them great, but if you like bands like Taking Back Sunday, Fall Out Boy, Brand New, Matchbook Romance, etc., then you should spend every dime you have to buy this cd. I drove across an entire state and traveled an entire highway system to see them two nights in a row in concert because they are that good. Enough said.

These guys are really really freaking good, and even better in concert. Normally, with a lot of CD's, if you listen to the whole thing a couple of times, you pick out songs you like more than others, and are able to narrow down your playlist to the "better" tracks on the album. Not so with The Matches. After roughly 9 months worth of listening, I am still hard-pressed to pick out a "best" song on it, because they're all really good. This would have to be one of the best punk CD's I own. Download the free mp3's on their website, and listen to them. If you like the samples, then you'll love this CD too.

I got this CD after hearing one of their songs on Mark Hoppus' podcast.

Wow.

It just blew me away. I'll not go so far as to say that every song is amazing, but they're a great band, and this CD is certainly a great buy. From Dog Eared Page to Borderline Creep, you'll find a set of catchy, brilliant songs. I haven't tired of them, even after listening to their CD on repeat numerous times.

I reccommend this CD to anyone who wants to listen to some great rock music.

The Matches are amazing. I didn't think much of it when a friend of mine told me about them, after getting this cd however I realized how awesome these guys are. Eryn Smith, Dog-Eared page, Superman (not on the Epitach cd), and Sick Little Suicide are all great songs. Not a bad song on the entire cd. This is one of the best cds I've heard in a long time. They are all over the place, so basically if you are a fan of ANY type of punk, ska-punk, or alternative music, GET THIS CD! It's not like any other punk rock band around and these guys are gonna be huge some day! You will NOT be dissappointed, I promise you.
