the song gate....a lovely slab of rustic pop that
starts out great but ends up in this horrible washed-out,
he appears to have gotten the point.
does cheese out in the bridges from time to time."
worley, aiding & abetting
he prolly meant the choruses, though.
lyrics on this album are a little eccentric and the
tracks themselves are very mediocre and less than
and turning of the stone would have to be the two
best tracks on the album because they were cleverly
written and their presentation is almost uncanny.
tanner is just a brilliant track....turning of the
stone is a more serious and slow track still in rap
format [ed: turning of the stone
is 28 bpm faster than tanner]. it's
very meaningful and actually gives you something think
about while giving you something to listen to at the
same time. again the writing was superb and their
play on words is extraordinary....this
album is nothing that can't be fixed with a little
time and effort. the songs seemed to be thought out
too much while presentation doesn't seem to have been
thought out at all....
many ways i can relate to [sister]
in having a sister of my own and sharing that common
& publication withheld, for her own good
fail me. nothing i can't fix with a little time and
wont ask about the sisterly bond.
slick album is crisply produced, flawlessly performed,
and quite professionally packaged. it is so slick,
in fact, that i am left with only one conclusion:
matt bonner must have a great day job - one that pays
him well enough to finance this project.
is....perfectly put together, yet simultaneously completely
devoid of soul or vision....the music here sounds
like it was performed by expert studio musicians thumbing
through the 'alternative' adult contemporary songbook:
'80s-inspired (h)airy guitar solos, bass locked in
tight with every pulse of the kick drum (and never
anything else), synths, and - egad, man! - rapping!
think '80s one-hit wonders mr. mister trying to make
a relevant comeback for the 21st century (it's "kyrie
eleison", with special guest MC Paul From Accounting!).
sum, congratulations are in order for matt bonner
on all those guitar and singing lessons he took, because
he really does know how to play and sing. however,
congrats are even more in order for that fantastic
day job matt's got. way to go, matt! don't quit it!"
-scott tennant, splendid ezine
you are the hands-down winner, at least for now. i'll
make sure you get an advance copy of next cd before
thanks on the guitar compliments, i appreciate it
- but that was joe and cal playing. so while you're
skulking around out there in search of the mythical
cutting edge, featherweighting your way through your
reviews, take a couple minutes to read the fucking
liner notes. i'm sure the MC Pauls of the world would
hate to imagine their publicists taking that hard-earned
accounting pay and pissing it up the wall.
