I'm wiser than I've ever been
but more full of it
full of it
more full of shit than I'll ever be again
either I been lying less often
or I'm getting skilled at being wrong
The Matches is and will always be my favorite. And with album 4, the previous sentence has been cemented as fact: the band is purely genius.
As much as I want to give them credit and write a review for AP.net, I doubt my writing would do justice to the record. I'm not the best writer. I mean I can write. It clearly shows. I know the ABC's and the Subject-Verb Agreement and Pronouns and Antecedent and stuff. And with my age, people would surely judge my credibility over music(which I don't care about. I hate the rudeness of people who think their musical taste are superior beyond anything else. Sometimes I just want to stop the argument there and then and yell, STFU.). I don't have the best taste in the world, but then again, if I'm in love with this band, maybe I do.
I want to show people why The Matches is worthy of being big. I want them to be big. Because then that'll only mean the world has become a better place for the music world. The reason people can get down to them easily is because they write stuff pretty much about life in general. From the cash out cash ins of Papercut Skin or the she, always, just inches from me, inches on a map, distance or destiny of Clumsy Heart, The Matches is a one-of-a-kind band that everyone can relate to, save for those who cant stand Shawn's vocals. For three(and now four) records, they've done so much, and have been so much. But they could've done more. So much more.
Well, I might try a hand at writing reviews just for this time. Maybe, I'll fiinish it in about a week, to listen to the record more, and for a hundred revisions so I could actually write well enough to persuade people into giving them a chance.
