Matthew Sweet is as poetic and beautifully heartfelt as he ever was on this great CD.

"This from Spain; i'd love to hear these songs in a car across the U.S.A., searchin' for a heart of gold, thinkin' about a girl i left behind..."

"I first started listening to Matthew Sweet in the summer of 1993. It was the summer between 9th and 10th grade. I would stay up late every Sunday night and watch 120 minutes on MTV, when the used to play vidoes.
They would play my two favorite songs that summer , "Cherub Rock (smashing pumpkins)", and "Time Capsule (matthew sweet)".
I worked a crapy part-time job making 4.25 an hour. I only worked 8 hours a week. A soon as got my first paycheck, which was only 27 dollars, I walked to the mall and bought "Altered Beast", and "Simease Dream" on cassette. That took all my money because cassettes in 1993 were 11.99. I played it until I wore it out. When I finally got my Cd player for christmas that year, those were the first two Cds I bought.
This Cd is still great 13 years later.
1. Dinosaur Act - great opening track, it shows that Matthew can rock pretty good.
2. Devil With Green Eyes - It's one of my favorite songs on the Cd. It's one his more mellow songs.
3. The Ugly Truth - this the mellow version of this single
4. Time Capsule - One my favorite songs on this CD. It's was his second single on this record. Do you remember the video ? It's just him laying in a grass field with bugs and worms crawling on him.
5. Someone to Pull the Trigger - Hands down the best song on this CD. It's mellow and rocking at the same time.
6. Knowing People - It's kind of an anthem that he doesn't want to become famous. He really never did. A great song.
7. Life without You - your basic slow Matthew Sweet love song. It's an alright song.
8. Intro - It's excerpts from the movie "Caligula". "He's a God Now"
9. Ugly Truth Rock - The single version. This was the first single from this record. The video is Matthew driving a dodge dart, running from the police. There is a dead body in the trunk.
10. Do it Again - a pretty good song. A slow love song.
11. In Too Deap - One the better tracks off this album. Pretty good guitar and vocals in this song.
12. Reaching Out - A pretty good song.
13. Falling - A pretty good song. A slower song.
14. What do you Know ? - A decent track. Show how melodic Matthew is.
15. Everygreen - This is a very dood track to end the record with. It's pretty mellow. He like to end his records on mellow songs.
I higly reconmend picking up this Cd."
