Anybody who appreciates great songwriting should have this cd. We never take a car trip without it; like "Dark Side of the Moon," for example, it fits all moods and is playable every day. BHTM classics like the poignant "Broken Hearted Savior," the sad-but-amusing "Turn the Light Out," "Soul for Every Cowboy," the lyrics to which are reverently quoted on every Todd Tribute website; the reassuring "It's Alright," the more produced version of Midnight Radio's "Bittersweet," and crowd-singalong favorites "Circle" and "Brother John" make this one of the best albums in existence. BHTM should be millionaires by virtue of this album alone, not to mention their impressive body of work as a whole.

This was the first BHTM CD I bought. I heard "It's Alright" on the radio and had to have it based on that one song and never regretted it. I own all their stuff and have seen them live four times. They're at their best live. This CD is definitely their best. The title song has great rhythm and riffs. Each CD is fantastic but "Sister Sweetly" has a special place in my collection. It's among the 5 CD's I would need if stranded on a desert island. Can't wait for their next CD. Hurry up, guys!

This is the "breakthrough" album of BHTM, and what a breakthrough it is. Starting with Broken Hearted Savior, the power and heartbreak is expressed in the words and music that hit me hard. The texture of the songs and the moods strike me unlike any cd I've heard up to that point. The highlight is definitely their "hit" Bittersweet. They refused to shoot a video for it, even though it would've pushed the song to greater commercial success, thus preserving it's integrity and beauty. Other highlights include: It's Alright, Tomorrow Never Comes, and the last 2 tracks, Cirle and Brother John, demonstrating their crunch and folk ability. I consider BHTM akin to a kept secret, which eventually will get out. In the meantime, I will enjoy their music. If you like mindless, party music, you probably won't like this cd. But if you like gut wrenching music with matching lyrics, check this album out.

This album is still in my rotation after 14 yrs. It is timeless. Bittersweet was popular during a particularly bittersweet time of my life. The song rang true for me then and still makes me vividly remember that time and relationship. When he sings "I'm older now. I work in the city. We live together. But it's different than my dream.....Are we everything we wanted?" This song is timeless because I still wonder these same things.

The best song is actually Tomorrow Never Comes. It's lyrics are even more pointed and questioning. "He worked so hard so he'd be something. Just what it was he never knew.....So we'll just learn to love our sorrow." Ouch.

ON a high note, I have seen them about three times and they put on a FABULOUS live show. Todd Park Mohr is a phenomenal guitarist. They absolutely rock live and not that it's heavy, it's just really pure. They tour a lot and I venture, to them it's just about the music. It shows. Not a lot of happiness on this album, but we can all relate to it. And that's what good music does to me.

I've been listening to "Sister Sweetly" for the past few days, and have yet to grow tired of it. You'll love this album if you are at all into rock/blues/soul. Passionate emotions are combined with catchy, sometimes hypnotizing melodies. "Bittersweet," probably the most well-known song by this little-known band, is as the title suggests, and powerfully emotional. "Circle" is both a passionate plea ("I'm asking you to turn around"), and a thought-provoking statement about life in general ("Rise and fall, turn the wheel, cause all life is is really just a circle"). "Ellis Island" surprises you with its melodic twists and turns. "Tomorrow Never Comes" may be my favorite. It is quiet, haunting, beautiful even, with its soft percussion, quiet piano riff, and masterful and emotional vocals. Passionate and soulful, this is Big Head Todd at their best. I very much recommend it.

Part of me believes that Todd Park Mohr and his buddies deserve to be horrifically rich and famous, and then part of me thinks that perhaps I oughta keep my trap shut, so's I still have a chance of getting tickets when they come to town. : )
I am in total agreement that this is a "desert island" album. I have listened to "Sister Sweetly" at least a zillion times, and it never fades, every song remaining as solid as it was the first time I heard it. From the gentle folk of "Brother John" to the bluesy slink of the title track, to the hard-rock crunch of "Circle," there's a little bit of everything, all of it done amazingly well. "Sister Sweetly" reads like a catalogue of influences of blues/rock masters, from Clapton to Hendrix to Stevie Ray Vaughan.
Todd Park Mohr's vocals are alternately lilting and sweet, then roaring and angst-ridden, intermingled with his outstanding guitar work and great drum and bass work from his bandmates. It's odd to contemplate that a three-piece band like BHTM could produce such a wall of sound, but they do it, and spectacularly well at that.
An example of the lasting worth of "Sister Sweetly" can be found at the band's shows. Eight of eleven tracks on the album were played at a BHTM show I saw a few weeks back. That from an album that was released nearly 10 years ago, on a tour promoting a NEW album (which is also very very good).
My only grump with this album is that the production is sometimes a bit muddy. That's really all I can find to complain about with "Sister Sweetly," which has earned itself the #1 spot on my list of Top 90s Albums.
