Cotton-candy synth fluff
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Well, after listening to his later work first, I picked up this album and found it to be a disappointment. This is bland synth-pop, with pleasant, sugary melodies sung in a high, airy style, but absolutely forgettable in every respect. It goes in one ear and out the other and leaves no lasting impression.Worse, most of the songs sound almost exactly the same. I almost thought the first three songs were all parts of the same song. Throbbing synthesizer eighth-notes on the bottom, innocuous melodies on the top. Yep, it sounds like a lot of the synth-junk that was being put out in the mid-'80s. Oh well, he improved. A LOT."
If This Album Wasn't As Great As It Is....

"I wouldn't have gone out and bought the rest of his catalogue. Actually, I had "Girlfriend" and "100% Fun," but these didn't inspire me enought to buy his other stuff. "Inside," on the other hand, is great stuff. He sounds totally in control, no squealing git-tars to maul the songs. And what songs they are, "Quiet Her," Blue Fools," "We lose Another Day," and "Catch Your Breath" might be the best four-song run of his career. Shame it didn't last, buy this puppy 'fore it goes outta print; )."
Sweet pop already full of hooks in first effort
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Inside", Matthew Sweet's first effort shows how 80s pop should have been done. Full of the trademark melodies he would later be praised for, Inside takes a more synth approach and comes up with the happiest, catchiest pop music you will ever hear."
