    never heard it before.  bought it last night, found it in the 99 cent bin at the record store.   there's a bi-phase on the back and a casino that looks like phil's.   

    will i like it?

    3 songs in. i recognized the first one, must have had some radio play. very full sound. the vocals were a little further back than i prefer. i liked the tone of the rhythm guitar. what's he using, i assume a casino? the harmonies on the end of the second song were cool, would have like him to use that in the song.

        Sweet had a minor hit off of that album. Some decent pop on there. Back in the 90's he was one of those semi on the verge of success musicians into effects.

        I remember when this came out. I had some friends that were into it.

      It's on my "25 favorite records - evar!" list. That's probably the best 99 cents you'll ever spend on music.


      You did well. :smileythumbsupsmall:

        BTW, if you enjoy this record, look for Matthew Sweet's Girlfriend CD next. That was the album that preceded 100% Fun, and it's got a ton of great songs on it too.

          I really liked Girlfriend when I was in high school. Some great tracks on that album.


          100% fun has some cool songs on it - Sick of Myself, Not When I Need It, etc.... I like Girlfriend better, but it's a good album.

          The guy who played drums on that record was in a band that my band used to play with a lot back in the mid-90s, so I always liked them for that reason. I remember Kathy Lee being all into him when MS was on Regis and Kathy Lee which was funny.
