I'm not saying there wasn't great music made in the 70's, I was just commenting on a tendency to sometimes over nostalgize previous decades while glossing over the dross. There was an awful lot of s*** music made in the 70's as well.

Wait.... are people actually defending Matchbox 20? Did I read that right? In a U2 forum? Did they drop their standard by that much?

my sentiments exactly. they started out good enough, but got suckier with each attempt.

i agree. banjos do not belong in rock songs. this is the same reason i hate the some take it easy. if i wanted a banjo breakdown, i'd listen to devil went down to georgia.

as you can tell, i don't like banjos or country music.

Matchbox Twenty = Good
Rob Thomas Solo = Not So Good.
His solo album's not been my cuppa tea, I dont mind the band, great live band....but not Rob's Solo effort

Agreed that there first two records were pretty good, third one is not bad....C'mon they cant be THAT bad ......

I have nothing against Rob Thomas as a person. He comes across like a nice guy in interviews, and I'm a fan of nice guys. The Santana song was huge and was a great pop song - one of the best ones I've heard.

It confused me at first to see Thomas attempting a pop career after fronting a rock band, but if M20 wasn't satisfying all of his moods, and he wants to make a pop record, so be it. "Lonely No More" is silly and so I ignore it. The dancing in the video should have been relegated to the blooper reel though.

I don't want to bag on M20 b/c it's clear that some people are getting defensive and insulting others, which isn't cool. So I will just say that M20 isn't my cup of tea, and "Real World" is just awful.

I didn't think there was enough to M20 to inspire such passionate hatred... you guys proved ME wrong

But then, I haven't heard Lonely No More... and I think I'm going to avoid it.

I went to Amoeba Records in San Francisco last week and there I saw (in the sales bin, I might add), a CD with a photo of this really young thug on it. Then I found out it was Rob Thomas.

Seriously? THAT'S what he really looks like? Yowza.
