    There are stormy rockers and stately, fevered ballads. "Music For Love," meanwhile, condenses Sweet's philosophies into one joyous singalong. [Aug 2017, p.38]

    Once again, Matthew Sweet’s influences come through clearly--a little Big Star here, a lot of T. Rex there, a dash of Fleetwood Mac everywhere--while the music remains distinctively and charmingly his own.

    Like most double albums, this one could do with some judicious editing. It’s a logical reason to bring in an outside ear which, with multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter Sweet credited as producer, engineer and mixer, hasn’t happened here. Regardless, Sweet fans who are a bit of a cult at this stage, will rejoice with this reflective new music.

    All of these sounds may not surprise, but they're comforting in their familiarity, particularly because Sweet's execution as a writer and producer remains precise.

    I wasn't sure how to this album initially. Some of the songs felt like demos, and I thought there was a LOT of filler. Now, after about 10I wasn't sure how to this album initially. Some of the songs felt like demos, and I thought there was a LOT of filler. Now, after about 10 spins, I've warmed considerably to the album. So much so that I think this is Sweet's best work since the early 2000s. There are definitely a few tracks that should've been cut, but overall it's a really strong album. Lots of melodies are lurking under the surface and reward multiple listens. Expand

    This is such a hard album to score out of 10. The 17 tracks on the album were evidently culled from about 38 Sweet worked on for the set. AllThis is such a hard album to score out of 10. The 17 tracks on the album were evidently culled from about 38 Sweet worked on for the set. All I can say {as a fan} is maybe he should have dropped a fair few more.

    There are some great tracks on the record but still way too much filler.
