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."

Matchbox Twenty has distinguished themselves magnificently on more than you think you are, thankfully leaving behind all vestiges of their initial sound that sometimes made them seem like little more than pleasant "Black Crowes" knockoffs. Rob Thomas' amazingly versatile vocal skills are beautifully showcased here, and yet there is still SO much more to the show! With all the remarkable tunes on this CD it is hard to settle on a favorite, but rest assured there are plenty more great songs than just that small subset being bludgeoned by copious play on the airways. Especially notable are the funky, retro "You're So Real" (shades of the Doors' You Make Me Real?), as well as the delightfully bohemian hidden track--think Stray Cats, or Queen (it's NOT lame, guys!!). And certainly there are not enough superlatives to describe the breathtaking "Downfall". Each and every song on the CD is fresh and unique, full of lyrics that weave compelling images ("Slow dancin on the boulevard/In the quiet mornings while the city's still dark/Sleepwalkin through the summer rain/In the tired spaces you could hear her name" or "All the one way rides/and those sweet beginnings/Passing on the left hand side/With a sideways smile"), and clever melodies that prove unequivocally this band can play anything and play it well.
The bottom line? Don't miss this CD; it is one that will get in your heart and your head, and you?ll be infinitely glad it's there!
This is one of those albums you just never get tired of listening to. You keep hearing more and more in each song. It's very difficult to find a favorite. Rob and MB20 once again have graciously given us a treasure!!
