White Light Rock and Roll Review
(Universal)
From the opening riffs of “Put Out Your Lights,” Matthew Good’s short and sour second solo record rocks and bitches and questions and condemns for 40 minutes. Most songs are under four minutes, but Good can do a lot in that time—the record’s best track, “We’re So Heavy,” is four different parts with no repeats. It’s highly political, but not preachy: on “Blue Skies Over Bad Lands,” Good asks the listener to “just understand understanding.”
