    Sweetheart of the Sun is something special, easily the second best album of their career.

    A beautifully sustained salute to 1960s-inspired pop. [30 Sep 2011, p.74]

    Sweetheart of the Sun is a remarkably good record that comes long after anyone may have expected the Bangles to do anything much at all.

    While it may not be as perfect a pop album as All Over the Place or Different Light, the Bangles get an awful lot right on Sweetheart of the Sun.
  5. 60
    It's a spare and occasionally stiff album that has more to do with, say, the Indigo Girls than the 1960s bands the Bangles grew up worshiping.

    A slight addition to their catalog. [Nov 2011, p.102]

    The bangles here right the ship. [Dec 2011, p.79]
