3.5 greatSputnik`s Resident Deity and Peacekeeper | September 4th 08

'Voices' is a very underrated album, in my opinion. I enjoyed a few songs from "Stories and Alibis" (like 'My Eyes Burn' and 'The
Greatest Fall of All Time'), but this album, "Voices," is such a huge leap above the former that one can hardly tell that they
were created by the same band. Mr. Andrew Jordan drops the grating high-alto voice found in many early '00 pop-punk bands, and
instead embraces an awesomely haunting tenor-type vocalization that helps set Matchbook Romance apart from the pack.

Each song is so well put together...you won't find the same old re-hashed chords and progressions in these songs. You may find
remnants of familiarity, but even the heavier chords sound new. Ahh...and let's not forget about the lyrics. The album starts off
with a song called "You Can Run, But We'll Find You," which just makes you picture a stalker with a 12-inch blade and a Cheshire-
Cat grin on his face. There's songs of hopelessness, hopefulness, self-reflection, and even the songs about love lost sound brand-
spanking-new.

I'd recommend this to anyone who thought MR was just another generic pop-punk band. You'll be in for a treat, I promise.

I personally loved this band's feel. They have a classic rock sound and I really liked their music. This was my first Matchbook Romance CD I've owned and I am very impressed I really liked a few of the tracks in particular such as "Monsters" That was a good one. But overall great sound and great guitarists. I like it.
