"I am a HUGE Matthew Good Band fan in America. Rarely anyone knows about them here. They are like the best kept secret in America. They are hands down the very best rock band there is!!! I can't explain just how Matthew Good mixes aggresion, depression, and plain fun into all his songs. They are all AMAZING!! I'm a big music buff, and nothing has quite ever struck me as the Matthew Good Band does!! I just got the new album "Beautiful Midnight" and it is PURE BLISS!! Wake up, America, Matthew Good is a GIANT force to be reckoned with. They are to me, what Pearl Jam and Nirvana were to Grunge. Rock is not dead, it's just in Canada. Get this CD "Underdogs" and then all the rest you'll need of course believe me you'll not be sorry, if you like Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Seven Mary Three, Radiohead, just rock in general. It will blow you away!!!!"

"I normally review only books, but I had to make an exception. I bought this CD because of "Apparitions". I'd been listening to Apparitions over and over, from a mix CD, and finally decided I had to have the rest of the album. I'm so lucky to live in Canada. Poor Americans have no idea what they're missing out on without the Matthew Good Band. So I bought "Underdogs". It is amazing. I'm not a music critic, but I know good music when I hear it, and this is great music. Amazing. For a long time I couldn't figure out what made it so appealing.I finally figured it out. Matthew Good Band sounds like what you WISH rock music sounded like. Like the Ideal of Music you hold in your mind; and yet, not quite like any other band. Like I said, I'm not a music critic. That's what it is to me. :)One great thing about this CD is that you get to know every song after listening to it only once; after that it gets better with each listen. In some ways, Apparitions is the best song, but it's quite different to the overall sound of the album. Every song on the album is great, yet each has a distinctive sound. I love Rico: "Everyone's got to be something/ Me, I'm stupid/ It's all I ever wanted to be". The best songs are Deep Six, Everything Is Automatic, Apparitions, Strangest One Of All, Rico, Prime Time Deliverance, and Indestructible. Seven great songs would be enough reason to buy the album, but even the ones I haven't mentioned are awesome--just not quite as good as the others.This was the best album I owned, until I bought Matt Good's next album, Beautiful Midnight. But that's another review. Music fans, you must obtain this album, whatever the cost, wherever you live. Really."
