Something Like a Storm: Matthew Good Album Review

Coquitlam born solo artist, Matthew Good has released his eighth studio album, Something Like a Storm. Technically, if you count the albums released with The Matthew Good Band, it’s sixteen, but who’s counting. The singer/songwriter debuted much of the album live on YouTube on the night before the official release. Joined by Alan Cross, Matthew sang and talked about his history, the album, the songs, the writing process and more. Check out the video below, it’s pretty awesome.

It seems like the process of releasing albums has changed and we were given a video for Bad Guys Win in April of 2017, followed by a video for Decades in July, with two additional tracks on Spotify, Days Come Down and the title track Something Like a Storm. There’s a lot of tease and I was thrilled to be able to see Matthew performing some of the new tunes this summer at the Budweiser Stage.

Something Like a Storm is honest and pure Matthew Good. And I’m just going to say it, it’s not fun or lighthearted. I’m completely okay with that. The world is a scary place right now and that’s reflected in the songs.

These are not negatives, I really like this album. I like the songs, and I like the messages. I like the strings at the start of the title track, they’re dramatic and enticing, and the drums in Bad Guys Win are so good!

Matthew has been making records for over 20 years and while the process may have changed, the end result is still something Matthew Good fans can look forward to.

The album is out now, go buy one!

    I was recently listening to Stingray Radio, and I heard a song from a band I didn’t know – Big Wreck – covered by Matt Good, a music artist I also didn’t know. The song was Blown Wide Open. It really moved me, and so off I went to Sonic Boom to find more of his music. I walked out with some of his older albums in tow. It’s all new to me, and I love it. I will be picking up Something Like A Storm soon.
