Yourself or Someone Like You songs Product Information
Yourself or Someone Like You album for sale by Matchbox Twenty was released Oct 01, 1996 on the Atlantic (Label) label. "Push" was nominated for a 1998 Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal. On YOURSELF OR SOMEONE LIKE YOU, Matchbox 20's debut, vocalist/lyricist Rob Thomas leads his band down the same path as Counting Crows, to a post-Pearl Jam, Van Morrison/Band-influenced home at the top of the charts. Thomas' raspy voice wraps a romanticized alienation around folky, roots-inflected rock tunes that share the thematic aspirations of Van circa TUPELO HONEY and The Band's self-titled second album, if not their literary wisdom. Yourself or Someone Like You CD music contains a single disc with 12 songs. ...See Full Description

Mediocre. Rob Thomas is a horrible vocalist thats all. And the guitaring and drumming is so so.
By derekp8 (Toronto, ON, Canada)
All of their music is good, but this is still my favorite. Rob Thomas has a way with lyrics. If you like Matchbox Twenty, listen to Rob's old band, Tabitha's Secret.

Surfacing CD (1997) Top Seller
Yourself or Someone Like You songs SURFACING is an Enhanced CD containing both a full audio program as well as multimedia computer files.
SURFACING was nominated for a 1998 Grammy Award for Best Pop album. "Building A Mystery" won the 1998 Grammy for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. "Last Dance" won the 1998 Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental Performance.
"Adia" was nominated for the 1999 Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.
On her fifth album, Vancouver-based singer-songwriter Sarah McLachlan returns with a simpler collection of songs which quietly explore the darker aspects of human nature. SURFACING is a group of straightforward songs which get right to the point, both musically and lyrically, dealing with such heavy topics as faith, life and death in an appealingly accessible way.
McLachlan's unmistakable soaring voice displays its usual angelic tones and amazing versatility, abetted by the familiar, assured stamp of longtime producer and collaborator Pierre Marchand, making SURFACING McLachlan's most mature album yet. Right from the start, with the anthem-like pop tune "Building a Mystery," McLachlan sets the tone, simultaneously shadowy and calm. SURFACING is an introspective musical landscape, a tight collection of thought-provoking songs from one of today's most talented artists.
Personnel: Sarah McLachlan (vocals, acoustic & electric guitars, piano); Brian Minato (electric guitar, bass); Michel Pepin (electric guitar); Yves Desrosiers (guitar, lap steel, bass); Ash Sood (piano, drums, percussion); Pierre Marchand (keyboards, bass, percussion, drum programming, background vocals); Jim Creeggan (acoustic bass).

|Goo Goo Dolls|
Dizzy up the Girl CD (1998) Top Seller
Yourself or Someone Like You CD music "Iris" was nominated for a 1999 Grammy for Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year and Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal. "Black Balloon" was nominated for the 2000 Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal.
On first hearing, the Goo Goo Dolls sound like the Replacements' distant cousins, full of trashy rock bravado tempered by intelligent, often tender lyricism and a penchant for combining ringing acoustic guitars with dirtier sounds for a rich sonic stew. In fact, DIZZY UP THE GIRL finds the Dolls moving further away from the Replacements sound than ever before, with a definite '90s influence to the proceedings. The group's main link to the Replacements (and to Paul Westerberg's main influence, Alex Chilton) is the man-child dichotomy played out over the course of the album. The youthful, energetic spirit that makes DIZZY UP THE GIRL an exciting bit of rock & roll is matched at every step by a world-weariness that gives the jangly alt-rock tunes an air of maturity.
Includes 2 Exclusive Bonus Tracks 'Name' & 'Slave Girl'.
Personnel: Johnny Rzeznik (vocals, guitar); Robby Takac (vocals); Jamie Muhoberac (piano, keyboards); Mike Malinin (drums); Carmen Rizzo (programming).
Photographer: Melanie Nissen.

|Third Eye Blind|
Third Eye Blind CD (1997)
Yourself or Someone Like You buy CD music This San Francisco band's first album is a study in contradictions, presenting heavy, often melancholy, themes in the guise of catchy, tuneful power pop. The irresistible single "Semi-Charmed Life" is just one example of Kevin Cadogan and Stephan Jenkins' agile lyrical stylings. The delirious tempo aptly reflects both a high feeling and a sense of desperation, of things spinning out of control.
The album is chock full of searching lyrics set against a background of lush, rhythmic music. "How's It Going To Be" has a palpable sense of nostalgia and loss. The funky "I Want You" expresses a yearning for connection: "Children love to sing but then their voices/Slowly fade away/People always take a step away/From what is true/That's why I like you around/I want you."
Recorded at Toast Studios, Skywalker Ranch and H.O.S., California.
Personnel: Stephan Jenkins (vocals, guitar); Kevin Cadogan (guitar); Brad Hargreaves (drums).

Bringing Down the Horse CD (1996) Top Seller
Yourself or Someone Like You album for sale "6th Avenue Heartache" was nominated for 1997 Grammy Awards for Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal. "One Headlight" won the 1998 Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal. "The Difference" was nominated and "One Headlight" won the 1998 Grammy for Best Rock Song.
On BRINGING DOWN THE HORSE, The Wallflowers refine their roots-rock and bring their considerable talents into focus. Now it's clear what distinguishes them from the rest of the roots-rock pack, and it's not just their convincing vintage musical chops. Singer/songwriter Jakob Dylan (son of Bob) has developed a knack for elliptical, imagistic lyrics that still convey urgent emotions. The intriguing collection of songs Dylan wrote for BRINGING DOWN THE HORSE catalogs the disillusionment and frustration he sees in himself and around him.
Adam Duritz, Michael Penn and Sam Phillips are among a star-studded group of guests here, but their contributions are tastefully understated, never distracting the listener from the band's signature sound. One of the most distinctive pieces of that sound is the organ work of Rami Jaffee, whose style combines elements of Charles Hodges' playing for Al Green with Al Kooper's seminal work with Jakob Dylan's dad. T-Bone Burnett's sympathetic production makes the most out of the quiet, acoustic passages as well as the anthemic rockers.
Recorded at Sunset Sound, Groove Masters, O'Henry Studios, House Of Blues West and Brooklyn Studios, Los Angeles, California.
Engineers: Toby Wright, Neal Avron, Jon Schiff, Tom Lord-Alge.

|Mad Season CD (2000) Top Seller
Yourself or Someone Like You CD music This limited edition comes with special packaging not included on the regular version.
MAD SEASON BY MATCHBOX TWENTY was nominated for the 2001 Grammy Award for Best Rock Album and "Bent" was nominated for Best Rock Song.
Like it or not, Matchbox Twenty's songs have an uncanny ability to take near-permanent residence in your musical consciousness. Returning with MAD SEASON BY MATCHBOX TWENTY, the band cashes in their 20, perhaps in an effort to avoid getting lumped with other "number bands."
Matchbox Twenty is a truly complimentary vehicle for Rob Thomas' pen and voice. An obvious contender for single status, "Crutch" features modern R&B flavored verses and a driving chorus that could easily rival "Smooth" for longevity. "Last Beautiful Girl," with its thick vocal harmonies and dynamic extremes, has Thomas struggling through bittersweet heartbreak. "If You're Gone" makes tasteful use of Chicago-styled horns and orchestration very much in the David Foster production style. Title track "Mad Season" explores insecurity and emotional vulnerability, while in "Rest Stop," a woman musters the courage to end a failing relationship. "The Burn" describes frustration over lack of inspiration, and the breakaway single "Bent" has an '80s essence, with triggered drums and Journey-influenced keyboards. MAD SEASON will surely liberate the band from any lingering opinions that they're just a flash in the pan.
Recorded at Tree Sound Studios, Atlanta, Georgia; East Iris & Oceanway Studios, Nashville, Tennessee.
Matchbox Twenty: Rob Thomas (vocals, acoustic guitar, piano); Paul Doucette (vocals, acoustic guitar, drums, percussion); Kyle Cook, Adam Gaynor (vocals, guitar); Brian Yale (bass).
Additional personnel: Nashville String Machine (strings); Atlanta Brass Society (horns); Tony Adams (drums); Sam Bacco (percussion); Angie Aparo, Peter Stuart (background vocals).
|More Than You Think You Are CD (2002) Top Seller
Yourself or Someone Like You buy CD music MORE THAN YOU THINK YOU ARE was nominated for the 2004 Grammy Award for Best Rock Album. "Unwell" was nominated for the 2004 Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal.
In between his commitments to the band, Matchbox Twenty singer-songwriter Rob Thomas had spent the time leading up to the group's third album collaborating with everyone from Willie Nelson to Mick Jagger (his resuscitation of Carlos Santana's career already being old news by this point). Despite all these star turns, Thomas returned dutifully to the fold, and MORE THAN YOU THINK YOU ARE definitely sounds like a band effort, not just Rob-and-the-other-guys.
While the catchy "Disease" (no pun intended) occasionally comes a little too close to Carly Simon's "You Belong to Me" for comfort, its musical insistence and inventive production make it stick in the memory. "Bright Lights," with it's piano-laden elegiac feel, is somewhat akin to the Train hit "Drops of Jupiter." "Downfall" starts out like a rowdy piece of alt-rock, but eventually drops into a surprising gospel feel, complete with choir. Like the opening track "Feel," "You're So Real" is a hard-charging rocker full of nasty riffs, but it's followed by album-closer (not counting a subsequent hidden track) "The Difference," a power-ballad that's the closest thing on the album to what longtime fans might have been expecting from their mercurial heroes.
Additional personnel includes: Greg Leisz (pedal steel guitar); Carol Webb, Enrico Dicecco, Jonathan Minklage, Maura Giannini, Jan Mullen, Ricky Sortomme, Bonna Tecco (violin); Sue Pray, Sarah Adams, Crystal Garner, Vincent Lionti (viola); Eric Ralshe, Jerome Ashby (French horn); Paul Doucette (synthesizer); Matt Serletic (congas); Vanesse Thomas, Lydia Mann-Jaime, Melanie Daniels, Cheryl Pepsi Riley (background vocals).
Recorded at Bearsville Studio, Woodstock, New York and The Hit Factory, New York, New York.
Matchbox Twenty: Rob Thomas (vocals, piano); Paul Doucette (acoustic & electric guitar, piano, Clavinet, Mellotron, drums, percussion); Kyle Cook, Adam Gaynor (guitar, background vocals); Brain Yale (bass).
