I find Matthew Sweet to be too-mainstream sounding...IT sounds as if he's
just writing his songs because he knows they're catchy...You like them
but at the same time yoiu want to hit him...I mean, I have GIrlfriend,
but I must admit it hasn't been listened to in a while...
On the other hand, Odds just mix their Beatlesque harmonies and pop
songcraft with really good, witty lyrics, and I'm definately a lyrics and
melodies kinda guy...That's why I like Sloan...I mean, DOmesticated Blind
and Wendy Under the Stars are just totally beautiful songs...
