Product Description

Matthew Sweet ~ 100% Fun

Amazon.com

Snap, crackle, and guitar pop with a title that says it all. --Jeff Bateman

Customer Reviews

This CD is a must for any fan of music.
Brian W. Fullford
I am a huge Matthew Sweet fan, and while I have been especially drawn to Altered Beast and Girlfriend, 100% Fun is his one piece of work to which I constantly return.
K. H. Leigland
Also, one of my favorite songs ever, 'Smog Moon' which is beautifully written and sung to perfection.
Eric Hammond

Though it does feel a bit quick and slightly empty as a whole, this is still one of the best guitar-rock albums of all time. This would be a great place to introduce yourself to Matthew Sweet's incredible talent. Basically, Matthew Sweet writes some harmony-rich (Matthew Sweet is one of my favorite singers), electric-guitar filled accessible rock songs that are given a classic rock sound by Richard Lloyd and Robert Quine's no-holds-barred leads. The clash of the two sets of styles is fascinating, and it's what makes the songs incredible.
"Sick of Myself" was the hit off this one, and it's classic from all standpoints. It's a grunge-ish alternative song that's three chords and an incredible solo.
"Not When I Need It" is another great song - more alt-rock and less grunge and slower than "Sick of Myself", but otherwise of the same mold.
"We're the Same" was a minor modern rock hit, and is quite good also, though not particularly notable for anything.
"Giving it Back" is a fairly standard rock song that's made worthwhile by the solo - that happens a lot on this album, actually.
"Everything Changes" is a nice ballad-type, with a great melody by Sweet and another great Richard Lloyd lead.
"Lost My Mind" is INCREDIBLY good, with a superb beat and a great feel. This is a standout song all the way around.
"Come to Love" is quite similar to "Giving It Back". Nothing major on this one, but it's nice.
"Walk Out" is roots-rock tinged, with a nice chord progression and - you guessed it - another brilliant solo.
"I Almost Forgot" is a decent enough piano ballad.
"Super Baby" is an interesting mix of gutsy rock, nearly off-key lead in the chorus, and a Moog synthesizer in the post-chorus.
"Get Older" has a good melody on it.

I grew up in Nebraska and when I walked into my seventh grade english classroon with a goofy smile and big blue eyes and a short hair cut... well, let's just say my 20something teacher giggled. I am a girl and yes I was accused of looking exactly like Matthew Sweet on the cover of this one... so I had to go explore what my twin look-alike looked like... especially since he was a boy. And that was when Matthew Sweet one a top spot on my list of favorites... from that day on I was always humming a tune from one of his albums. I took that album for granted, as new albums came out 100% Fun got pushed back farther and farther... and I never really truly explored this one until this last year.
In a desperate search for something new to listen to I pulled this one off of the shelf... Its cracked case and sweat stained lyrics book was plopped into my backpack along with my books, an apple and a CD Discman. Later that day I sat at the Union in between classes and opened the case and put the CD into my case and I discovered how truly amazing this album was for the first time... for the first time after owning it for years. I fell in love when the third track rolled aroun, "We're the Same" seemed to mimick my friendship with a boy I knew perfectly. Then he walked into the room making the moment almost surreal.
I will forever wish back to those days that my english teacher giggled at my appearance and just push myself to listen to that album sooner... but it no longer collects dust. Matthew Sweet is so incredibly under-rated, as my friend Junior said "Oh my gosh, you are a die-hard Matthew Sweet fan? I had just imagined those never existed." Well he had only thought that because people do not realize what this man, boy, whatever has to offer.

The title gets it right - this is a very fun album. There are a lot of great songs on here. Infectious lyrics and music - it still surprises me that Matthew Sweet isn't more popular than he is.

One other thing...it's a sin that "We're The Same" wasn't a bigger hit than it was. Truly a great song!

Matthew Sweet's album really is 100% Fun. The song "Sick of Myself" is very intense. It seems to be also cynical yet there is hope. I love the second song "Not when I need it" which
describes some sort of dependency and a need being filled. Don't
we all have something like that in our lives. And the third
track tries to make the claim that in some ways we are the
same, emotionally anyway. Matthew Sweet is an insightful man.

Matthew Sweet is one of those guys that people who know music have heard of but tend to dismiss. The fact is that he put out several great albums in the 90s while being overshadowed by mega-artists such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and The Smashing Pumpkins. This album has several songs that, had they been released in the 70s, would have easily been top ten hits. Timing is everything. This is power pop at its finest. You will not be disappointed.

I got a tape of this album when I was still in high school from a friend, I always loved the music and am so glad I can now replace that very tired cassette tape with a CD.

Matthew Sweet has an unusual sound that is addictive and easy to listen to. I have enjoyed this music for ages and I would recommend that everyone have a little listen as it would appeal to many!
