We gave it an A-

That Matthew Sweet has taken us down these musical roads before — paths of feedback, reverberation, and tartly hymned lyrics — is acknowledged in the album’s title, In Reverse. But rather than breaking new ground, he’s taking intriguing side trips into forests of thick guitar chords (”Millennium Blues”) and muddy vocals (”If Time Permits”). The result? Follow Sweet’s intentions and you’ll be invigorated, even — in the heavenly, hard-rocking ”Faith in You” — elated.
