CD Review: Matchbox Twenty

North (Atlantic/Emblem)

Share on Nextdoor

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.
