You can visit Matchbox 20 on their MySpace page, s well as on their Official Website.

1-How Far We've Come
Such a great rock song for a first single. The beat is addictive, the bridge is just cool with Rob's suave, smooth voice. Fast paced and addictive.

2-I'll Believe You When
Infused with country flavors, this song makes you bop your head in time with the music. Rob's voice sounds great. This song will be a fun one in concert.

3-All Your Reasons
The fun, acoustic sing along at the beginning is very catchy! This song is vintage Matchbox 20. The guitar is amazing!

4-These Hard Times
The lyrics of this song are very touching. Nice little ballad.

5-If I Fall
The chorus is catchy; Rob's vocls soar and carry this one. Very good beat, sorta sixty-style pop, but not quite pop enough... Still good.

6-I Can't Let You Go
A little bit of blues in this one. Great, great mid-tempo ballad, sweet sweet love song. The piano gives it a little bit more... Matchbox 20 at its finest. I can't let you go, You're part of my soul, You're all that I know...

The rest of the album goes like this:

1-Long Day
3-3 A.M.
4-Real World
5-Back 2 Good
7-If You’re Gone
8-Mad Season
11-Bright Lights
