CD Review: Matchbox Twenty 

North (Atlantic/Emblem)

Not much has changed for Matchbox Twenty since their last album five years ago, a greatest-hits set that included six new songs. They're still pushing guitar-speckled mom-rock (the title of that 2007 release? Exile on Mainstream) and making major issues out of the smallest things. North is their first full album of new material in a decade, and they're starting to show their age. Only the opener "Parade" and "She's So Mean" stand out.
