Biography

Produced by Nathanson with Mike Viola and Jake Sinclair, Last of the Great Pretenders marks a dramatic progression for the acclaimed artist, who has created a richer and deeper work both musically and lyrically than any of his previous LPs – and that’s saying something considering the already rarefied level of his writing and performing. Songs like “Earthquake Weather,” ... Read more in Amazon's Matt Nathanson Store

To quote the closing line of the Amazon review I wrote in 2007 of Matt Nathanson's most recent album "Some Mad Hope,"Matt Nathanson may not be a household name, but he should be" Fast forward past the huge commercial success of "Come On Get Higher," and one of the hardest working musicians in today's music scene finally has the recognition he deserves. Would he let the success go to his head or would he take it all in stride and further his quest to become one of the greatest singer-songwriters of his time? With "Modern Love," Nathanson definitively answers this question, and the album plays out as such:

1. Faster- 8/10
I have to admit that I was worried when this song was chosen as the first single. Without listening to the rest of the album and only having this song to judge, a hardcore Matt Nathanson fan might have been worried that Matt changed his sound too much, but after listening to it within the mix of the entire album, this song has really grown on me. It's summery, it's catchy, and it's a tough song to get out of your head once it's in there.

2. Modern Love- 9/10
Amazingly catchy mid-tempo number that is even harder to get out of your head than first single "Faster." Synthesized pianos, blaring horns, and a hooky chorus make this an essential tune to crank up with the windows down.

3. Love Comes Tumbling Down- 9/10
Sincere mid-tempo ballad with beautiful lyrics and an extremely powerful yet simple chorus. Of all the songs on the album, this one has the most solid build-up to a perfectly paced chorus.

4. Room at the End of the World- 9/10
An amazingly fresh blend of Matt's finest works. The lyrics of a mid-tempo ballad interspersed with an extremely catchy uptempo arrangement, this tune is a definite standout.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Run" is a fantastic song on a very good album. June 21, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I really like Matt Nathanson's music and I've been a fan since I stumbled into a song of his on Napster back in 1999. Over a decade later, he's still making great music. Nathanson is a talented song-writer with solid lyrics and a knack for catchy hooks. I've been waiting for this album for quite a while and it did not disappoint. It's probably his most "mellow" album yet, but he's matured over time and it shows in his songs. I am not a critic. I'm a fan. If you're a fan of Matt Nathanson, you'll probably really like the album. I absolutely love the song RUN. I feel like it is the best track on the album and one of my favorite songs by Matt Nathanson ever.

This is a fantastic 8th studio album by one of the best rock songwriters today in Matt Nathanson, titled 'Modern Love'. It's a great follow-up to the critically acclaimed 2007 CD release 'Some Mad Hope' & Matt Nathanson covers the intricate theme of love in the modern world : its good & bad from himself & friends around him as 'ginea pigs'. This results in what his recording company calls a joyful, complex & bold CD than anything he has done before. Stand-outs/solid tracks/gems from this CD (11 tracks) are "Faster" (up-tempo track with wonderful rock music, vocals & melody), "Modern Love" (title track), "Love Comes Tumbling Down" (an incredible ballad with beautiful keyboard/guitar combination, chorus & melody), "Kept" (slow track with unbelievable melody), "Run" (wonderful melody & harmonies featuring the great duo of Jennifer Nettles & Kristian Bush) & "Bottom Of The Sea". Great tracks include "Room @ The End Of The world", "Kiss Quick" (a slow track, great vocals & melody), "Mercy" (some 'indie rock' sound & great chorus) & "Drop To Hold You" (up-tempo track with great high pitched vocals). Okay track is "Queen Of (K)nots". On overall, Matt Nathanson displays incredible talent as a singer/songwriter in this new CD 'Modern Love', a highly recommended CD listening. A well deserved 5 star performance!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! June 21, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Everything Matt does is great. This album has it all. The sappy to the angry, the love to the love lost. He says it best is his own description on the jacket: '"If they're done right, records should do seemingly opposing things. On one hand, they transport you...they drop you somewhere else. But at the same time, they root you deeper in yourself." Another great album, Mr. Nathanson. The only thing better than listening to Matt's CDs is listening to him him play live. He's a genius and a true entertainer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing album June 22, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
To keep this concise, this is just an amazing blend of songs, from emotional, heartfelt ballads (Kiss Quick, best slow song on album), to unbelievable upbeat, catchy songs like Faster. And like all the other reviews are saying, Run is such an amazingly composed song. Something is wrong with you if you don't like it. Great album.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of Matt Nathanson's Best August 3, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I've been a fan of Matt Nathanson's since his incredible album, Still Waiting for Spring. Although I loved his follow up album Beneath These Fireworks, his following album Some Mad Hope was a little too teenage girl pop for my tastes. I am happy to say that Modern Love is a great blend of those two sides of Matt. Many of the tracks seem to reflect some of his musical influences. For example, on "Faster," I hear a lot of Prince. On "Kiss Quick," I can hear the influence of U2. If you are on the fence about checking this album out, you should take a listen. It's only $5 on Amazon now and definitely worth that much and more. Better yet, after you check it out, see Matt Nathanson live. He is an incredible performer live. I am consistently blown away by his energy on stage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Song Cycle for Our Social Media World
Strong song cycle of an album. Matt doesn't do sex for its own sake. His nuances don't sound rehearsed, adding to the quality that he is singing directly each audience member.
