Album Notes
Signs of Passing 1., n.: a relentlessly melodic record | textured harmonies and anthemic choruses | lyrical depths and extremes | lush acoustic and massive overdriven electric guitars | virtuoso solos | layered keys | gorgeous female guest vocals | deep grooves & big low end.

Signs of Passing 2., adj.: passionate | subtlely urgent | impressionistic | articulate | hungry | humorous | relentlessly melodic (see 1. above) | not to be missed.

"Bonner is at his finest creating lush and brooding soundscapes. He talks, howls and whispers his way through 12 singularly accomplished songs."
-Performing Songwriter (DIY Top 12 reviews, December 2003)

"Intriguing and a definite standout hit."
-The Inside Connection

"The same freshness as contemporaries Radiohead and Beck....great stuff."

"Production quality: 5/5"

"The production quality is an order of magnitude higher than most indie releases....a fine candidate for repeated headphone sessions."
-Cosmik Debris magazine

"Matt Bonner has forged a unique sound."

A fresh CD - you have to get this!
This CD is awesome! There is a little bit of everything - mellow rock, funk, rap, and some surprises. I love the song "Tripwire"...can't get enough of it. You don't want to miss this CD!


This CD is my new best friend. Goes everywhere with me because I'm always in the mood to enjoy the subtle jam, relaxing qualities and have a good laugh. Saving Grace keeps swirling around in my brain. It's a keeper!


The reason why I'm married? Not quite, but...
I work at Performing Songwriter magazine, (quoted in this album's listing) and not to toot my own horn, but I'm the one who first listened to this CD in the office. We often share "DIY" review listening duties. Anyway, this album stood out like a flashing, screaming ball of gold in a pile of (forgive me) lackluster ramblings.
It ended up in my car a couple of weeks later when I went on an impromptu 2500 mile road trip with an old college friend. We must have listened to "signs of passing" 10 times over the course of those 5 days, and long story short, we were married after what I consider to be a pretty short amount of time.
I'm not much for the "rap" parts of the album, but I guess they break things up. Comparisons to Sting are inevitable, but that's selling this album short. Aside from being an incredible driving album, the lyrics, melodies, and production are desirable in almost every way. I am anxiously awaiting another album.


This CD is most enjoyable with a great deal of surprises!


Signs of passing is a musical journey that you don't want to end.
What a great musical experience. Contrasting styles and inspirations abound in this unique cd, yet the songs flow together very well. Jack Tanner is hysterical. Don't hesitate, buy this CD!


you can't stop listening
this cd slips through your door, entrances you, spins you round, loses you in its gaze, shares its rhythm, has a laugh, and leaves you like a lover humming a tune. if great music combines the poetic and the harmonic this must be a great album. bonner's style is convergent, always interesting, and, like the ebbing sea, continually drawing you deeper in. listen for yourself. you'll love it, and you'll end up the one humming the tune.
