 As a fellow Canuck, I thank you for the review. Sounds about right. Still, if the MGB ever releases a singles collection, I'd be all over that...

 This is a terrible review. Ok, First of all, you can't call someone a "self-professed asshole" in a negative manner, then proceed to make jerk-off bias comments like "Americans have always had it much easier than us Canadians when it’s come to Good". It's hypocritical, and rather annoying. Another thing that really got to me in this review is you spent more time comparing random lyrical passages to other bands, and his earlier work than you did talking about his music as it is. Seriosly, you can compare any band with another and find similarities... it doesn't make that band bad in any way. Especially since Matt Good has some of the most unique lyrics (unique in that they aren't following a trend, or a cliche) out of any single artist in North America (alive) today. And as for the music (guitaring, piano, etc etc), it's almost as if you totally ignored it all. The thing I love about Matt Good and MGB is that every CD is different. His music is constantly changing, which is a relief, because he isn't like every other name-less band who makes the same shit over and over until people realize it was never good in the first place. Matt gives us something new each album, maybe not lyrically (although his poetic style of lyrics are also constantly changing, and never repeditive), but his styles are definatly changing. People who care more about the characters in a band as opposed to the music should not be alowed to review. That's all I have to say.

 This review is pretty accurate. This record is boring, both musically and lyrically. It is disappointing, because I think Beautiful Midnight is an A+, and I liked Audio of Being a lot too. But the solo records don't show much promise.
