Do we need a SECOND volume of covers from 90's power popper Matthew Sweet and former Bangle Susanna Hoffs? Probably not. But since I didn't have a say in the matter and the record is already out,I will enjoy it for what it is - fun.
Sure you know what's coming with every single song...but that's ok. I like to think of it as the musical equivalent of a mindless Wil Smith movie. You know in one of those lots of stuff will blow up and in the end, Mr. Smith will save the world. And on one of these records, some great old songs are going to get the sugary sweet power pop treatment from Sweet and Hoffs...just sit back and enjoy...just don't think too deeply on it - no need to.
Plus, EVERY generation deserves an update on this bitter classic:
