The first 10 songs on this album are a fantastic album on their own. The last 5 drag it down a bit, though. The guitar playing from Richard Lloyd and Robert Quine is tremendous, and there are so many great melodies throughout.

Combining all the best elements from pop rock history and turning them into something bright, shiny and new.

I would add Nothing Lasts to the highlights and call it perhaps the best song on the album.

From GuitarDan 10/28/2010 01:23
CONTEXT: In the middle of the early '90s grunge era, Sweet created 2 of the best pop rock albums of the decade. The production is a bit too squeaky-clean, but the songs are undeniable: they hook you in, and then keep getting better with repeated listens.
MUSIC: A surprisingly diverse collection of blues riffs, jangle-pop, psychedelica, and even country sounds. The vocal harmonies are a throwback to the 1960s, but the music never sounds dated or derivative.
LYRICS: Beneath the soothing facade are lyrics that express betrayal, heartbreak, and desperation. It's done so subtly that it sometimes gets overlooked.
HIGHLIGHTS: I've Been Waiting, Girlfriend, Winona.
