Beautiful Midnight remains one of my favorite albums of all time. I love how dark all the subject matter is:

Load Me Up/Jenni's Song : alcoholism
Going All The Way: teen suicide
Let's Get It On/A Boy In His Machine Gun: mental illness

etc.

I'm a fan of the man's whole catalog and I'm psyched that people are into him on this site.

Didn't he kick everyone out of the band and is still touring and recording?

Either way, the man knows rock/pop songwriting and penned some incredible tunes back in the day.

Yes, he has a solo career and I mentioned that in the first sentence of my blurb. EDIT: But with that awesome comment below about Big Shiny Tunes, I think you have to have watched MuchMusic 10 years ago to understand the real nostalgia factor. The Matthew Good Band era of his career is not the same, nor is it as commercially successful with the demise of MuchMusic. I hear old MGB songs on the radio more frequently than I hear his solo stuff too.

Love everything this guy does. Beautiful Midnight is by far one of my favorite albums of all time, and Hospital Music comes in at a close second. He's got a great collection of songs that showcase his talent

Matt Good is amazing. The Audio of Being is a stellar album and my personal favourite MGB album, although out of all of his work I have to say I like Hospital Music the best. Hospital Music is honestly one of the most haunting records I have ever heard, dealing with his depression and attempted suicide... great album.
Agreed, Hospital Music is fantastic, but at the same time I find it hard to listen to fully, end to end.

Audio of Being is probably my favourite (MGB) album, put it on shuffle and if you hit the trifecta of Man of Action, Carmelina and Anti-pop you know you are going to have a fantastic day.

That being said he probably hasn't released a bad album, Vancouver was seemingly criminally under-rated and under-exposed on release and all of his solo stuff has been consistently good. I see a lot of love for Hospital Music, and rightly so, but Avalanche probably wins out as his best.

Thanks for posting this. One of the most underrated acts and artist of our generation. If you haven't heard his newest record 'Vancouver' yet, do yourself a favor.

I'm listening to these songs for the first time, and I could totally hear these songs being played on the radio and everyone thinking they were just released. It's crazy these were recorded 10 years ago.
