iTunes Editors’ Notes

By his fifth album, Matthew Sweet had mastered the art of pinning melancholy to power pop; this is partly why it's aged well since its 1995 release. The singable sadness of “Everything Changes” and “I Almost Forgot” simmer like some early-’70s Beach Boys tune. Songs such as “Get Older” and “Super Baby” are celebrations of small wonders and a big heart, while the pop-infectious “Sick of Myself” is an utterly sincere (and rocking) ode to self. And like some other Sweet albums, this one’s fortified by the unmistakable guitar counterpoints of Richard Lloyd (Television) and Robert Quine (Voidoids).

100% Fun is Great Stuff

Great album from start to finish. Great power pop with a few heartaching balads thrown in for good measure. Smog Moon is a gem that is always overlooked along with Super Baby. Not quite as good as Girlfriend but better (IMHO) then Altered Beast. Thumbs Up!

100% Awesome

Best songs, IMHO, in order of awesomeness: Get Older, I Almost Forgot, We're The Same, Giving It Back...

100% Fun

This album is awesome, takes you back to grunge pop. I saw him tour in support of this album, listening to the tracks almost takes me right back there.

Like his British counterparts Teenage Fanclub, Sweet adhered to traditional songcraft, yet subverted the form by adding noisy post-punk guitar and flourishes of country-rock, resulting in an amalgam of the Beatles, Big Star, R.E.M., and Neil Young. Recorded with guitarists Richard Lloyd and Robert...
