Great album

This is one of my favorite all time albums! Still sounds good after all these years. It's one of those albums that I listened to in college. Oh, and don't listen to ireneringworm from Oregan. He doesn't know Kenny G from Warren G. Matchbox 20 has nothing to do with grunge.

still works for me

There is a lot to enjoy on this album. Don't think too hard about it, and don't be a snob, darling. If you nodded your head and sang along a few years ago, you are going to do the same today. Not my all-time favorite band by any means, but nice added to a mix.

Has it's moments

I saw MB20 perform "Push" on the Tonigth Show before I even knew who they were. I picked up this Cd, and while I really love some of the tracks here - "Hang", "Real World" - The album feels uneven contrary to what alot of people say about it. Nonetheless, if you found yourself listening and enjoying the singles on the radio, and ALOT of people did, you'll probably find a tune or two here you like as well.

They Say All Music Guide

Yourself or Someone Like You turned out to be the standard-bearer for post-alternative rock because it has a ’90s sheen in its production, but, for all the world, its core sounds like classic rock. Lead singer/songwriter Rob Thomas adopted some of Eddie Vedder’s vocal mannerisms, but they were smoothed out, lacking the angst and pain that were Vedder’s hallmark. Matchbox Twenty functioned much the same way, picking up at Pearl Jam’s fascination for album rock, but deciding to stick to the classic blueprint instead of personalizing it. All of this resulted in a record that is much more straightforward than most alt-rock albums, even if it follows the pattern of a classic ’90s album — not just in its production dynamics, but down to the acoustic-based slow number that closes the record. It blends the most familiar elements of the two golden eras of album-oriented rock, finding a balance that is comfortable for mainstream fans of either side. Other bands with similar sounds that could have done the same thing, yet Matchbox Twenty distanced themselves from the pack with sturdy songs and fairly strong hooks, all delivered forcefully with Thomas’ distinctive bravado. Their music is not flashy, nor is it as ingratiating as Third Eye Blind’s pop instincts. It is, however, solid, American rock, reminiscent of a blend of Petty and Pearl Jam. So, it shouldn’t have been surprising when the album found a wide audience. For many observers it was still unexpected, because the sound seemed a little plain. What they didn’t realize was that Yourself or Someone Like You wound up being the point where mainstream American rock stopped being willfully eccentric and returned to being unassuming and kind of ordinary. – Stephen Thomas Erlewine
