While I do agree that this album isn’t boundary pushing, groundbreaking, or shy about showing its post-grunge influences, I still think it’s an underrated and solid pop rock release in the latter half of the 90s. The first three tracks are raw, emotional, relatable, and catchy. “Back 2 Good” is just a little bit too long and repetitive, but I still enjoy the lyrics, instrumentation, and Rob Thomas’s vocal performance. A few mediocre and derivative tracks in the album’s second half that make it slightly suffer, and then we finish it all off with the moving acoustic closer “Hang”, which has become one of my absolute favorite MB20 songs. Give this a listen while driving in the car and keep an open mind. It will grow on you.
There is a blandly efficient sameness to most of Matchbox 20's work that extends beyond just Thomas' vocals to the lyrical content, the soft rock instrumentation and the song composition. It all goes in one ear and out the other smoothly and painlessly enough, which always made the singles popular Top 40 radio filler, yet you'll forget what you've heard seconds later.
While a little simple and unoriginal, the album makes up for it with some consistently catchy and well written songs. I used to make fun of this band for being lame, but when it comes to this album I can't find many things that I dislike. This is quality, enjoyable 90's pop rock at its finest.
Best Tracks: 3am, Push, Back 2 Good
Matchbox 20 debut is straightforward mainstream blue-collar 90's pop/rock. It's singles made them extremely popular and the top half of the album is very good at what it does.
Tails off in the second half. The whole thing lacks originality and is a bit bland. Nothing here has a WOW factor.
Back 2 Good and Push are the highlights. 3 AM and Real World are simple catchy singles.
Damn is a personal favorite.
Cool singles. Not as awesome deep cuts. Not too bad overall.
Very good pop rock/alternative rock album. Best 10 songs average is 88,3/100 and the album can get very good 90/100. Best songs are "Long day", "Push", "Back 2 good" and "Kody" all 90/100. Most other songs pretty good 85/100. Favourite!
So good! There is only one or two songs on here I MIGHT skip over, and even those aren't bad songs. Great album.
Wildly inconsistent. The four opening tracks are enjoyable -- even exceptional as far as post-grunge is concerned, in tracks "3 AM" and "Push" -- but the rest is anything but endearing. Worthy of a listen; choose your top tracks and bury the rest, because they're probably not worth listening to a second time..
Strange little album. A few GREAT songs, the rest are just sort of bleh. I only paid 50 cents for it so I'm not terribly troubled by this but it's strange to me. Of course, this was able to launch them and I'm really glad for that because I really do like Matchbox 20.
Great album. In my top 30 of all time. Great selection of songs. Haven't been able to capture an album remotely the same since.
