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.

Q (7/00, p.120) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...[A] passionate, turbulent affair, sounding, oddly, like a cross between Foreigner and the Red Hot Chili Peppers....There are some good songs here, touched by Southern funkiness..."
Mojo (Publisher) (8/00, p.98) - "...Rammed with FM-friendly post-grunge....The hook-splashed [album] will satisfy millions."
