    [ Major Matt Mason ]


    Me, Me, Me

    As a general rule, I do not enjoy singer/songwriters. I don't want to hear about their sad sorrowful tales and introspective rants about society.

    And, So, But.

    As a general rule, general rules don't sustain reality and individuality.

    Therefore, keep reading.

    Major Matt Mason's CD, Me Me Me, lands safely on the side of greatness. The 16-song disc brings pleasure where most singer/songwriters bring angst. His conversational voice makes this disc seem honest and bold. He seems to be saying, "Here is my voice, here are my chords, here are my songs, and if you don't like them well then you don't like me."

    The simplicity of the compositions eloquently place the focus on Matt's words. The chords are not predictable or over used, but remain tastefully simple and thoughtfully sculpted. Lyrically, Matt is memorable and complex enough to warrant more than one listen.

    "There is always something I won't have. That you'll find in someone else. And that's the something that you won't have. That I'll look for somewhere else." - Apple Sauce

    His voice has a certain droning about it which makes me picture a man at the bottom of a wall singing upward towards the sky trying to be heard.

    Enjoy this disc.
