MB20 up close and personal

A great look into the mind of Rob Thomas and he describes some of the inspirations behind many of his hit songs. Thomas gets very personal even revealing the fact that he doens't like the sound of his own voice! This DVD features a great mix of songs from their initial album "Yourself or Someone Like you" and the follow up "Mad Season".
The only downside to Matchbox Twenty's storytelling session is the lack of acoustic versions of hit songs; a favorite aspect of mine that blends in nicely with the intimate feel of the show. This is more than made up for with the a country version of push, and nice variations for fans wanting a twist in their favorite CD versions.
The highlight of the show is a piano version of 3AM that will leave you speechless. Seeing Rob alone on the piano after hearing his meaning behind the song brings the audience to tears, and a new appreciation of the song to all who listen.
Overall a great performance by a great band that is sure to please all who watch. VH1's storytellers is always a great show and Matchbox Twenty's episode is no exception so enjoy!
