After a more than a ten year layoff, Matchbox Twenty’s North maintains the simple, yet catchy sound that is the trademark of the pop rock band. Fans will be instantly reminded of the group’s debut album, Yourself or Someone Like You, as North continues the trend of upbeat melodies with darker, ominous lyrics.
Rob Thomas and the boys attempt a sound reminiscent of Cobra Starship on “Put Your Hands Up” with a pleasantly surprising outcome. It is a successful contemporary upgrade that attempts to make the band relevant in today’s rapidly changing musical environment.
The album is co-written by all the members of the band, allowing for more variety in style, but overall North will have fans recalling the Matchbox Twenty of the 90’s and 2000’s. This album is a must have for anyone who enjoys classic Matchbox Twenty but does not mind a bit of modern influence.
