Product Description

Melisma/Atlantic recording artist Matchbox Twenty is ready to rock with their eagerly anticipated third album, MORE THAN YOU THINK YOU ARE. Produced by matchbox twenty's longtime studio collaborator Matt Serletic, the new album - which features the hit single, "Disease" - was recorded at Bearsville Studios in Woodstock, New York and at The Hit Factory in New York City. "This is probably the most rockin' record we've ever done," says the band's lead singer/songwriter Rob Thomas, "Because we've been working with Greg Collins, who's engineered bands like System of a Down and Red Hot Chili Peppers, and mixer Jim Scott, who's worked with people like Wilco and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers. But at the same time, there's a warmness to the record, a real organic quality that I just love."

Amazon.com

Florida's megaplatinum matchbox twenty prove with their third album to be far more versatile than expected, comfortably outlasting the predictions of naysayers. Reuniting with producer Matt Serletic, the quintet takes credible swings at gospel ("Downfall" features a choir), Traveling Wilburys-type twang ("All I Need"), and big-arena rock with "Disease," cowritten by singer Rob Thomas and Mick Jagger and winkingly recalling Thomas's star turn with Carlos Santana on "Smooth." Pedal-steel great Greg Leisz spruces up several tracks, notably the tearjerker "Hand Me Down," while producer and keyboardist Serletic and percussionist Paul Doucette sprinkle instrumental pixie dust. More Than You Think You Are isn't likely to appease critics, who have consistently accused matchbox twenty of yelling when a whisper would do, but fans of the group are certain to dig these panoramic songs, each drawn in broad, vivid strokes. --Kim Hughes

Well, matchbox twenty have done it again. The new album, More Than You Think You Are (love the title, by the way), is full of great hooks, brilliant lyrics, fabulous instrumentation, and soulful vocals from band members Rob Thomas, Kyle Cook, Paul Doucette, Adam Gaynor, and Brian Yale. The album is a bit of a throwback to 70's rock, which is something we haven't heard for a long time.
Some standouts are the first single, Disease, which Rob cowrote with Mick Jagger, and has a disco-latin-old rock kind of feel.
"Bright Lights" is my favorite track on the album - it starts out with a solo piano, and Rob's voice, then builds to a beautiful climax, with a little breath of Black Crowes in it. It's absolutely beautiful.
"Unwell" is another favorite, with a great hook: "I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell/I know right now you can't tell/But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see/A different side of me..." Fantastic.
Rob shares songwriting credits on this album with drummer Paul Doucette and lead guitarist Kyle Cook on one track: the hard-rocking "Feel" , And rhythm guitarist Adam Gaynor is listed as cowriter on "Soul", along with Rob and Kyle. It's exciting to see that the band has many great writers in it. Paul also wrote "Could I Be You" on his own, and it came out beautifully.
The lyrics in "The Difference" are amazing, the gospel choir in "Downfall" will send shivers down your spine,"You're So Real"'s infectuous beat will be stuck in your head for days, and The hidden track, "So Sad, So Lonely" will have you dancing around your room - I can't wait to see it live.

I cannot say enough good things about this album. It is definitely a big step forward for the band. A great album all around. Highly recommended.

I have been a Matchbox fan ever since I bought YOSLY back in 96 or whenever. I loved Yourself or Someone Like You and Mad Season, they were both great cds. More Than You Think You Are is defintely a different sound for Matchbox 20, but still comes back with amazing lyrics and some great tunes. I'll be honest, I was skeptical at first, but this cd grows on me. Here's a run-through of the songs:
1) Feel - 8/10 Great Song, Very good beat and words
2) Disease - 8.5/10 Good rock song co-written by Mick Jagger, reminds me of the old Matchbox days
3) Bright Lights - 7/10 Good, slower song, shows just how diverse this group is, Next Single
4) Unwell - 10/10 - Favorite song on this cd and maybe my favorite Matchbox song ever. "I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell, I know right now you can't tell" Those words are so true to life. Just goes to show you why Rob Thomas won best Songwriter of the Year.
5) Cold - 9/10 - Great song, one of the more hard rock songs on this cd with an excellent chorus
6) All I Need - 9/10 Catchy, softer rock song, It's one of those songs where I can just find myself singing it all day long without realizing it
7) Hand Me Down - 8/10 - Good song about lives that aren't as rich as one would like them to be, great meaning behind it
8) Could I Be You - 7/10 - Not a bad song
9) Downfall - 9.5/10 - Great different sound for Matchbox, even bringing in a church choir to sing, it's also known for it's great lyrics
10) Soul - 8.5/10 - Great song, my interpretation is about a person who doesn't really fit in and gets teased a lot, but on the inside they have a great talent and a lot of soul
11) You're So Real - 7.

First of all, this wasn't even my CD. We bought it for a father's day gift, but, after one listen-through, I claimed it for my own and it hasn't been out of my CD case since. It's a great album, with beautiful melodies and great vocal work.

1. Feel- Probably the most rock-influenced track on the CD, it's very high-energy, and a good opening song.

2. Disease- The guitar line at the beginning is great, as is the rest of the instrumentation. The song is very catchy, and probably what got us interested in the album to begin with.

3. Bright Lights- I love how the first verse/chorus is entirely piano. It gives it a different feel after two "rock" songs, and Rob Thomas' vocal work is great.

4. Unwell- Not too many popular songs infuse banjo into them, but in "Unwell" it totally makes the song that much better. Great melody.

5. Cold- Definately one of my favorite tracks. I love the melody and the guitar line at the beginning, and also how the key changes for the last chorus.

6. All I Need- Nice guitar solo. The song has good lyrics and is overall a pretty good track.

7. Hand Me Down- Another song with excellent lyrics and vocal work. Very powerful, great melody, and one of the best songs on the album. Love the guitar work at the end, too.

8. Could I Be You- I like the repeated drumming before the last chorus, and the almost choir-like part at the end. Great ending, too.

9. Downfall- Another of my personal favorites. The choir adds a whole lot to the song, the lyrics are great, and the melody is awesome.

10. Soul- A slower-paced song, but still very nice, and the chorus changes the sound of the piece a lot.

11.
