Sweet Power Pop
839 posts in and Matthew Sweet features for the first time. Rest assured that I have given myself a stern talking to with threats of Toploader for any similar omission escalated to Phil Collins should there any be further repetition. I have been warned.
Matthew now has in excess of a dozen albums under his wing along with collaborations with Susannah Hoffs (calm down SA!) and supergroup The Thorns
I only have two of his albums (three if you include The Thorns) namely 1995's 100% Fun and 1999's In Reverse.
It is the latter which features today.Its title is reflected in the somewhat quirky packaging in that things are somewhat back to front e.g. the booklet is right to left as opposed to left to right with the back of the CD upside down.
I've seen him just the once at a free concert in a public park in Austin.
If power pop is your bag you will not be disappointed.
