  • Shannon from Huntington, NyMatthew Good Band are amazing. I found them in the summer of 2001, and I can't even tell you what a soundtrack it was for me. The lyrics are absolutely fantastic, especially for "Giant", like "when you blow out like a dead star, it reminds me how uniform your beautiful is." How amazing is that, how do you write that.
