    Gavin DeGraw is a wonderful and talented artist and this album holds some really great and awesome songs. A lot of emotion towards them with some compelling and effective lyrics. Just amazing!

    Sweeter benefits from greater textures in his surroundings, stronger hooks in the melodies, and, for once, a sensibility that doesn't sacrifice the present for the sake of paying respect to the past.

    The results are predictably formulaic.

    The 10 songs on Sweeter, DeGraw's fourth album, are taut, efficient and hook-packed, with guitars bolstering the big choruses....He's also an incurable cheeseball.
