Matthew Sweet: DoTM

I got the idea to do this DoTM from Dave's Review of Sweet's Girlfriend on Sunday.

I have to admit that I am not a big fan of Matthew Sweet but I do like the albums Girlfriend and 100% Fun. I also really enjoy the covers albums that he did with Susanna Hoffs.

So a short bio. Sweet was born in October 1964 in Lincoln, Nebraska and moved to Athens, Georgia after graduating from high school. He was in a band briefly with Michael Stipe's (REM) sister Lynda while there.

  1. I really like Girlfriend, Altered Beast, and 100% Fun. In fact I only own a copy of Altered Beast at the moment. I really need to get those other two sometime soon.
