I just can't get into Matthew Sweet, but the song, "I've Been Waiting" is easily the greatest power pop tune of the 90s.
Yeah, that one and the title track are the best here, and even with Richard Lloyd lending a hand on guitar, I'm just not feeling most of the rest of the album. But hey, I got the next three Sweet albums also in the backlog of unending size!
Slough Feg - Atavism. My fave Slough Feg. My favorite Lord Weird Slough Feg, however, is Traveller. The Scalzi/Cobbett team was really something special, and I say that with no disrespect to Anthony Tringali.
"I Will Kill You/You Will Die" was both the first song by the assorted Slough Feg Combine I heard and is totally an all-timer, to boot.
Pat Benatar - Seven the Hard Way. This is my favorite Benatar album, despite having the most dated sound.
Really? Huh. I always sort of felt about this one the way Pat Benatar feels about this one -- i.e., next, please.
Omen - Battle Cry. For someone with about an octave of range, JD Kimball has proven surprisingly impossible to replace. The only time Omen has ever sounded good without Kimball is when George Call fronted them, but I don't think they ever recorded with him, and even if they had, the album is surely bad because Kenny Powell is completely unable to write good riffs anymore.
At least Battle Cry is legit.
New Model Army - The Ghost of Cain. Only stupid bastards use heroin.
Warlord - Deliver Us. Just a little Warlord.
I paid out extra a few years back to import the Greek full-catalog anthology release... and should really dust it off and throw 'em back into rotation.
