Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (5/13/99, p.50) - Included in Rolling Stone's "Essential Recordings of the 90's."

Rolling Stone (1/23/92, p.47) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...irresistable... musically, Sweet is equally adept at balancing the tough and the tender... as a writer, he's a one-man factory of hooks..."

Spin (p.87) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[S]weepingly lovelorn....[H]e became an alt-rock star..."

Entertainment Weekly (12/20/91, p.72) - "...a spare and emotional stunner ...strikingly consistent songwriter...a masterpiece of spare, postmodern pop..." - Rating: A

Q (1/93, p.73) - Included in Q's list of the 50 Best Albums Of 1992.

Q (7/92, p.100) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...GIRLFRIEND'S 15 spiky, poignant songs about Sweet's marriage break-up and subsequent new romance build up deliciously into a little masterpiece..."

Alternative Press (5/01, p.104) - Included in AP's "10 Essential Breakup Albums" - "...Documents both the end of a relationship and the euphoric haze of a new one..."

Magnet (p.91) - "Its mountain of hooks and disarming sonic immediacy...sounds as if it's coming at the expense of its creator's sanity. That taut chemistry is a major reason why GIRLFRIEND has aged so well."

Mojo (Publisher) (4/00, pp.118-9) - "...In Japan he's huge and 1992's GIRLFRIEND explains why....silky sweet, the kind of bedroom angst that's quite simply infectious."
