It speaks for itself:
"There was a similar problem, band members said, with the guitar solos, some of which contained trace elements of what musicians call "passion." In addition, the interplay among bass, drums, and guitars occasionally produced uncomfortable polyrhythmic effects that provoked unintentional toe-tapping or head-bobbing in listeners. The problems were fixed through extensive re-recording."
Ha! that was great.
Just a little question...
Would anyone be terribly offended if the members of Mathbox 20 and any offspring they may have were uh... forced to come to an early demise?
Matchbox 20 is pretty close to the epitome of "generic commercial pop rock."
I remember a TV commercial for a radio station that featured Leeza Gibbons (remember her?). She mentioned a list of different artists that the radio station played and Matchbox 20 was one of them.
What are the odds that Leeza Gibbons is a Matchbox 20 fan, and how much can they rock if she likes them?
Get the ice!
Obviously the most deserving band is Air Supply, but I guess they already got theirs from F.Y.P.
Whatever, I like bands like Matchbox 20; not gratingly terrible, but just generic enough to make fun of. Where would we be without people like them?
"The release has been eagerly awaited by Matchbox Twenty's enormous fan base, composed of American record buyers who have a limited interest in music but enjoy the act of shopping."
You can replace Matchbox Twenty in this sentence with about a bazillion bands and it would still make sense.
a bazillion and one
I've heard live clips of them and they are better than their recordings. My problem with them isn't the music as much as the mix. Their first album was pretty good, but their second one had the guitars mixed way down, and was basically very bland. Rock music mixed like pop, no impact at all. This piece in the Onion hits the nail on the head IMO.
"No matter how many times we recorded the new single 'Sitting Down (Hands At My Side),' there was still a certain 'oomph' coming through in the drums, a loud-ish, slightly gripping sound that we couldn't remove," drummer Paul Doucette said. "Finally, after running them through about two dozen filters, we managed to get that 'plastic spork hitting mashed potatoes' sound we were after."
Great article, the Onion rocks!
Hope you guys dont get to hammered by hurricane Jeanne! I lucked out agian down south.
Ouch! That's gonna leave a mark.
Nope, that couldn't possibly describe anyone in MY household... :scowl:
This line actually pisses me off...
"Our goal was to follow in the tradition of great multi-platinum artists like Elton John, Phil Collins, and the Dave Matthews Bandsales powerhouses who relied on the musical ignorance of their fans," Thomas told reporters following Monday's announcement. "We knew that if we wanted to match those historic giants for sheer lack of energy, we couldn't settle for anything less than total banality. And, though it took a lot of time and effort, I think we achieved thatan album that sets a new standard for trite crapola."
Probably because it's very close to true.
hm, care to back that one up? That's quite a bold statement.
