what's all the hating on Matchbox 20? This is a solid album and Unwell is a great song :-?

Just my two cents, but I definitely think Matchbox 20 is one of the worst, sappiest bands to come out in years. Worse than DMB. ;-7

They are as bad as Radiohead is brilliant, IMO.

I'm pretty sure Unwell wasn't even on this album... and this album was baaaad. It came out during a period of cookie-cutter wuss rock headlined by bands like 3 Doors Down, Goo Goo Dolls and Creed while Nickelback has picked up where they left off (rock music is dying of course so that's why only one). The worst part though is that all those bands are still making music, with the exception of Creed whose lead singer doesn't seem to have a toddler's grasp of bipedal locomotion.

This is all just my opinion of course :-D

I actually like Matchbox 20.

That said, OK Computer is widely cited as one of the top 5 ever, and I certainly don't disagree. Radiohead by a mile.

I'm in the same boat as you. While they aren't amazing, their first album was pretty decent. MY vote went to them simply becasue I can't really stand Radiohead.

Honestly they could be good, but they've never shown me anything to make me care about what they do or to dig deeper then what I've randomly been able to see or hear.
