Not yet rated | write a review
Opening with a chunky synthesized riff, the first single "Hello Time Bomb" loudly announces the new album from the Matthew Good Band. Beautiful Midnight serves up a stronger keyboard presence alongside the usual handy guitar work. While songs like "Load Up" rage in the usual way, subtler songs like "Strange Days" and "I Miss New Wave" take a different route into the listener's attention. All together, these songs balance each other, creating an appealing sonic whole. These B.C. boys prove once again that unique, solid music is alive and well and living on the west coast.

With this bold and distinct album Matthew Good Band have established their calling cards. They include lyrics that openly ravage society's current focus of materialism, dead end spirituality and other immoral but obvious societal ills, a tight hard rocking sound, and pained vocals. This album is not just a showcase to what the band can do well, rock out with the best of them, but also what the band thinks and feels deeply about. In creating their sound they've successfully created their own niche within the crazy universe of music. One of the few bands where the musical description of "alternative" can correctly identify them. Matthew Good have finally married image, substance, and sound into a powerful sonic package. ~ Sammy Younan
