489. Matthew Sweet - girlfriend

This record isn't as good as I hoped it would have been prior to revisiting it. I never really gave it the time of day before - I must have gotten it 6 or 7 years ago through BMG and had certain expectations. "Girlfriend', 'Thought I knew You', 'I've been waiting', 'You don't love me' and 'Looking at the sun' are all decent, solid tracks but as a whole the album sounds like a really, really talented friend you have who has been playing in his band since college... which is fine I suppose... though I sympathise with Matthew regarding relationships his music needs to be beautifully melancholy (or incredibly sweet) to help his lyrics pop.

6.7 out of 10
