5.0 out of 5 stars incredible album October 26, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is album top to bottom is fantastic. While there are some songs that stand out more; overall, the songs on the album are what stand out to me most. The constant theme is of NY as a bed for the high's and low's of dating life are both comical and descriptive. This album is much more organic and real than white's first album, which felt like it was trying to achieve something in the john mayer, jason mraz lane. "Crazy" is much more piano driven and vintage sounding which allows the listener to get inside the album as opposed to listening to a song once and leaving it alone.

I've never reviewed or listened to a Matt White album in full before this one so I can't compare it to his first.

However, I can say that I got onto this guy from the movie Little Manhattan which played his single, 'Love'.

I was enamored enough by that tune that I eventually came to Amazon and checked out the samples to his first CD. But nothing else stood out. So I skipped it altogether.

Fast forward about 2 or so years and we're here now, reviewing It's The Good Crazy.

The first track, 'And The Beat Goes On' is nice and upbeat and makes for the perfect opener, while Matt's voice almost sounds like Adam Levine (from the pop rock band Maroon 5). I dig the second track 'Falling In Love (With My Best Friend)' because it's really relaxing and chill.

Next up is 'She's On Fire'. Another track that is calm, but this time has emotive vocals that keep things interesting. With the assist of a keyboard (which sounds really good here), Matt sails his way through this one. 'Taking On Water' is an acoustic track with just vocals, guitar and some drum work really. It's not a bad track but it's another calm track which makes three in a row. This may be off-putting to some.

Well, 'Color Blind' is a bit more upbeat compared to the last 3 tracks, but it still doesn't stand out much or go anywhere lyrically IMHO. I guess you could say it's very pleasant filler. 'When I Fall' is a pretty piano ballad about letting someone down in life. It's lyric-driven. It's a bit repetitive with the question "Will you catch me when I fall?

2.0 out of 5 stars Review Matt White CD February 12, 2011

The CD is great and I love every song except it already skips on two tracks. Disappointed that it started to skip so soon.
