    alterede beast and son of altered beast were great. we used to have a radio station named wdre in the north east they once played both albums entirely then they interviewed Matthew sweet and then he did a live performance of the entire girlfriend album and i was hooked. missed that station they always had great music and during the olympics they would have a music olmpics where they would play 3 songs from a band and then 3 songs from another band and you would vote to see which band won that block and it would continue with 64 bands and musicians and if your vote had picked 75 % correctly you would win every single album/cd of every single band they played. loved those contests they had

    After last May, I bought the deluxe edition of Girlfriend. I also bought In Reverse from a CD sale my university's radio station held. Still an amazing artist. I still ought to get more of his stuff.
