North is the fourth studio album by American rock band Matchbox Twenty. It was released on August 28, 2012 in Australia and September 4, 2012 through Atlantic Records worldwide. It is the first album from the band to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, selling 95,000 copies in its first week.
Following a 10-year hiatus, pop group Matchbox Twenty returns with ‘North,’ an effective and enjoyable comeback album. Matchbox Twenty reunites to deliver their highly-anticipated fourth studio album, North. North arrives ten years after their last studio album. It’s an incredibly arduous task for a musician of any kind to return after a lengthy hiatus. One pro for the group is that frontman Rob Thomas has remained visible, releasing two solo albums. On North, the band stays true to themselves, but also know how to craft songs with sensibilities of the times.
One day, they were ubiquitous, the next, they just weren't there and they stayed hidden for the better part of a decade, cobbling together a hits album and accompanying tour in 2007 but taking their time crafting their fourth album. A full ten years separate 2012's North and its predecessor, More Than You Think You Are, a decade gap that seems slightly shorter due to Rob Thomas' pair of solo albums and also in how Matchbox 20 pick up where they left off, spending only the briefest amount of time reckoning with pop trends that have surfaced since their last record.
That Matchbox Twenty has only released three official studio albums hasn’t discouraged the group from stacking up platinum plaques, with enough singles to fill a 2007 greatest hits collection (Exile on Mainstream) and be anointed one of the most popular bands of the late ‘90s/early ‘00s. North is its first new studio album in 10 years, written in a house in Nashville. Rob Thomas and company continue MB20’s legacy of charged pop, lyrical and melodic contraptions, and solid hooks.
