Go for the other one | Posted April 14, 2010
If you're looking to buy this one, go for the other version. Its got more tracks and even some acoustic versions. Its a great album, just buy the fuller version. It gets you more content.

Must Buy | Posted November 06, 2009
Not many songs on the album but I am an acoustic conasour. I am sure I spelled that wrong. This album is great. Songs are different sounding enough to buy even though you have the originals.

Very nice | Posted September 24, 2009
All I can say is AHHHMAZZZING. Matthew West really has a talent for this, and even though he had a major voice problem, wow, he's had a pretty good comeback. I must admit that some of the songs have gotten annoying, but that doesnt mean they are bad, if anything it means they are really good. Some of his lesser known songs are a real treasure,and I reccomend you take a look :)

Acoustic | Posted June 26, 2009
The acoustic EP is not middle of the road - it's great. I love jams and electric guitars, but The Writer's Room is great for a different twist. I hope Matthew West and other artists offer more acoustic sets and remixes.

good but not great | Posted June 02, 2009
I love acoustic music and this is exactly what West delivers in this ep. I was somewhat dissapointed with the ep because I wish the songs were a little more upbeat.

Think the originals are better and more catchy. I do like the acoustic version of The Day Before You, but still like the original by Rascal Flatts better.

Overall these songs are great for any fan, but don't offer anything outstanding. It is fun to hear the songs toned down with the acoustic vibe but still feels like it left me hanging.

Awsome | Posted June 02, 2009

Since his fourth album, Something to Say, Matthew West’s popularity has certainly increased. Whether it’s his experience writing the single “Something to Say” while he was unable to speak, or singing the most played song on the radio in 2008, recently West has been able to endear himself to more fans. In order to give fans something to chew on in between full-length projects, Matthew West seems to have jumped on the EP bandwagon, and now gives us The Writer's Room: An Acoustic EP.

Beginning the EP is “Something To Say,” which is still very upbeat, although the lack of music in the bridge leaves West singing nineteen ‘na nas’ practically by himself. The piano which drove “You Are Everything” is replaced by the guitar in the acoustic tune. “Only Grace,” off of West’s album, History, doesn't undergo much change, and the acoustic pop sound of “More” leaves me thinking it should have been either more up tempo or more of an inspiring ballad. A bonus song from Something to Say, “My Favorite Part” is an uncomplicated lullaby that does illustrate God’s existence through his creation (‘God loves us/ God is real and you're the proof/ 'Cause only God could make an angel like you’). “The Day Before You” was an odd choice for the EP as the guitar-driven contemporary pop tune was also originally released on History and doesn't represent any great chart conquest.

One other deceptive aspect of The Writers Room: An acoustic EP is that while Matthew West is skilled at writing engaging songs, the song selection tends to lean towards the more generic radio-friendly lyrics (lines ‘There's only grace/ There's only love/ There's only mercy and believing’ and ‘I love you more than the sun/ And the stars that I taught how to shine’ make up the core foundations of “Only Grace and “More” respectively). It’s extremely likely that only diehard fans of Matthew West picked up Something to Say Special Edition, but it will take fans that die harder than diehard fans to pick up The Writers Room: An acoustic EP
