    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The Swedish band I was listening to when you stepped into my "office' was Peter Bjorn and John. The song was called "Young Folks". I wish I could erase you from my mind. Not a minute goes by when I don't think about you. Expand

  1. The influence of that 1972 double LP can be heard in the similarly homespun production of Under the Covers, Vol. 2 but where Rundgren was open-ended, Sweet neatly ties up every loose end with the care of a pop fetishist, making sure all the harmonies and guitar licks are in place, never adding any untasteful elements.
  2. Some might fit a little too perfectly, so close to the originals that there doesn’t seem to be much point. But they best serve as reminders about what was so great about them to begin with.
  3. The result is a skilled and, if you like extremely faithful covers, enjoyable set.
