Double vinyl LP pressing. Following the stunning success of their explosive debut, the 2000 follow-up Mad Season’s soul-infused collection of modern classics demonstrated the band’s remarkably expressive range and power. Having further honed their craft through extensive touring, Matchbox Twenty grew into a creative musical machine, firing on all cylinders. This sophomore effort highlights the continued development of Rob Thomas’ gifts as a writer, with songs focusing on the binding elements of the increasingly unconnected world. In addition, the album featured a no-holds-barred sonic approach that introduced new musical textures such as intricate orchestrations and fierce horn sections.
