There have been some really good singer/songwriter releases this year (Josh Ritter, Emerson Hart, Matt Nathanson, Graham Colton)... Jason kept talking about the Cary Brothers album, but honestly I didn't think it was that great... There were a couple great songs though...

Glad to read a review of this on here. Not sure why, but I've enjoyed Matt Nathanson significantly more than I do a lot of his peers. While this doesn't quite stand up to Beneath These Fireworks (and maybe it will since I haven't listened much) it's a solid album nonetheless. Good review.

I was a little pissed when I preordered the album and it seemed like no one on absolutepunk.net knew who he was/cared he had a new cd out. great cd, deserves more than a C+ though

If you guys look at the rating it gets dragged down by a lack of originality (which I do not think can be argued). Read the review and you will see I liked it a great deal.

i never thought anyone on absolutepunk.net cared about matt nathanson, i posted his CD being released back in august but no one made a post on it.. this cd has not left my car since august 14th when i bought it... matt nathanson is by far my favorite artist out there, and everything he makes it amazing.. heartbreak world is such an amazing song on the new cd.. i was waiting for this cd for almost 2 years since he released beneath these fireworks.. now i just have to see him live, i missed out when he came to boston.

Yes! So glad to see Matt Nathanson get some ap notice!! :D

I would definitely say he's better than his contemporaries, and particularly better than Howie Day, who I think is a little on the cheeseball side.

Like said above...go see him in concert, he's absolutely amazing.
