Lite’s Music Review Room
The great news for Matchbox Twenty fans is that not only are they back together, but they’ve got a new album dropping on September 4th. Their first album, “Yourself or Someone Like You” sold 12 million copies in the U.S. alone. Subsequent albums sold well, but not quite up to that status. The new album, called “North,” features the extremely catchy single “She’s So Mean.”
This album has been in the works for well over a year, and from the sound of the single, contains the unmistakable catchy sound and sing-a-long lyrics of the band. When you hear it there’s no doubt that it’s Rob Thomas and Matchbox Twenty. Despite two long hiatuses and the superstar status of their lead singer, the band, formed in 1995 in Orlando, continues to deliver.
