    Solid Offering from Start to Finish

    Let me start by noting that I reserve 5 stars for those recordings that strike me as ground breaking in their fields. I decided to give this CD a try after reading a review in Acoustic Guitar magazine. As I continue to listen to this CD I become increasingly impressed with the pop sensibility found in the arrangements. Comparisons with the growing number of singer-songwriters such as John Mayer, Jason Mraz, Jack Johnson, and others are obvious. Matt Nathanson leans closer to the pop side of that group, but his work here proves that he belongs right up there with them. Personal favorites include Curve of the Earth, I Saw, and Angel. I'm surprised that I have not heard more about Matt Nathanson with respect to radio play (as of this writing 9/04), but I really don't keep up on what is hitting the airwaves. If you are a fan of the new group of male pop singer songwriters, then I highly recommend Matt Nathanson's Beneath These Fireworks to you.

    Give It A Try

    A less obnoxious version of John Mayer or even Dashboard Confessionals. If you like soft guitar sounds and a warm voice to comfort you during the mellow nights, give this album a chance. The songs hae heart and meaning, and you'll grow to like them. It's one of those cds that you can leave playing in the background and hum to. I first heard of this artist on an episode of Joan of Arcadia, and immediately decided to check him out. I was not disappointed. Nathanson is defintely a hidden treasure, who will possibly spring up on the big scene in a couple of years or so.
