Cradlesong (2009)

EW's GRADE
C+

Details Release Date: Jun 30, 2009; Lead Performance: Rob Thomas; Genre: Rock

One doesn't look to the Matchbox Twenty frontman for musical daredevilry, but his second solo disc falls too often into the mom-rock safety net. Cradlesong does best when he pushes a little, as on the trippy,
 sprawling ''Fire on the Mountain.''
