#224 Matthew Sweet.... Girlfriend

Released 1991

 

   For me this is a hit or miss album. I really like half the album. The other half just kind of bore me. 

    The songs I like are all real nice guitar  pop songs. Simple songs with great catchy melodies, and songs about his ex girlfriend. So they are not all happy songs.

   The songs that are a little less appealing to me seem to try to do too much all at once. I listened with headphones. His vocals were on the track on the left, and a guitar solo would be simultaneously in my right ear. It is mixed not to drown each other out. It sounds watered down, and weak. 

  Overall I think Mr. Sweet is one of the better pop songwriters to come out of the 90's.

 

I give this album 3 stars out of 5.
