Matchbox Twenty - More Than You Think You Are

Matchbox Twenty and Grammy-winning frontman Rob Thomas are adored in the US but their angst-ridden melodic rock has failed to ignite the UK.

Thomas' lyrics are too frequently overwrought, with "Unwell" and the ghostly ballad "Hand Me Down" the only standouts.
