Altered Sweet

Altered Sweet is an overflowing, delightful tribute album featuring covers of Matthew Sweet songs. Futureman Records has put together 27 cover songs from as many artists and overall it’s a great collection. I would have liked to hear more brave reinterpretations of the songs, and a few dozen more songs, but it does pay capable tribute to one of the greatest songwriters and his diverse body of work. Highlights for me include Fireking‘s take on “Dead Smile“,  simplefriend’s version of the hit “Sick of Myself“, and Gretchen’s Wheel‘s “Walk Out“.
