Format: Audio CD
After the Bangles' comeback met with undeserved indifference, it seems Susanna Hoffs has gone back to her stop-start solo career with help from her sometime Ming Tea bandmate Matthew Sweet, and the result is this superb album. As a fan of sixties power-pop and rock in general, this record is like a dream come true. It's what you wish all those covers bands who clog up pubs and clubs at weekends would sound like, instead of a bunch of lardy bricklayers in faded check shirts and supermarket jeans banging out 'Smokestack Lightning' again. Hoffs and Sweet's voices blend quite magically, the instrumentation isn't wildly different from the originals (which adds to the authentic feel) but it's still unmistakably a modern record - there's none of the 'recorded on old analogue equipment and tapes' anoraky approach here that, say, the Bees have gone for - and it doesn't feel like an anachronism. This is the kind of album I could listen to again and again...oh wait, I actually have! Highspots are 'I See the Rain', 'Cinnamon Girl', 'Who Knows Where The Time Goes' and 'Care Of Cell 44'. UNCUT gave this album four stars, and their judgement's spot on. If you like good quality jangly guitar rock-pop, this album will reward you several times over.

Please allow me a moment of heresy: having been a fan of Matthew Sweet's since Girlfriend came out in 1991, I honestly think that with 'Under The Covers' he's made his masterpiece.

This is not just another covers album. Sweet and Hoffs have chosen their material with a connoisseur's ear, and their vocals and Sweet's magnificent arrangements somehow manage to stay loyal and true to the core of the songs while bringing something new and original to them at the same time. It's almost as though these are the recordings the original writers would have wanted to have made in the 1960s if they'd had sufficient skill, taste and studio facilities. 'Different Drum' has NEVER sounded better, and is probably the jewel of the collection - hear it and feel the love! And some of the obscurites here (She May Call You Up Tonight, Care of Cell 44) shine like never before.

There are other pleasures here, too. There's a real flow to the album - it really works as a sequential suite of songs. The guitarwork is superb: on Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, Sweet sounds more like Neil Young than Neil Young, and gets maximum crunch out of the song's riff. And Susanna Hoffs sings like a fallen angel throughout. For anyone who guiltily loved 'Eternal Flame', then now's the time to let that love break free from the closet. Who would have thought that anyone could sing Who Knows Where The Time Goes better than Sandy Denny?

Oh, just BUY this record. It will make your summer just that little bit sunnier - I promise.

Format: Audio CD
Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs harmonise to delicious effect on this eclectic 14 track offering, which one hopes will be a ongoing diversion from the main task of Mr Sweet knuckling down to the task of a new solo long-player of his own. Ably assisted by Velvet Crush's Mr Ric Menck (great drummer, great look), the dynamic duo illustrate their impeccable good taste in 1960's music - yes, some well-worn classics are given a new lease of life but it is their interpretation of lesser known album tracks and minor singles that really make this CD worth the money. The layered harmonies on Love's 'Alone Again Or'are sublime, and the strangely sweet juxtaposition of xylophone and feedback guitar on the Velvet Underground's 'Sunday Morning' as eerie as it is beautiful. Sometimes covers can be a statement that an artists creative juices have dried up but this installment (hopefully there will be more) proves that Matthew Sweet still has the creative ear of a muscial genius.

I don't normally write reviews for anything that Ms Hoffs is involved in because I find it hard to be unbiased. However in this case I will make an exception; this album is a great collaboration between two artists who compliment each other perfectly in style. Hoffs voice is perfect for this excellent choice of 1960's covers while Sweet's multi-instrument musicianship and interpretation of the songs is excellent. Sweet's mixing and engineering has resulted in a very polished and slick production, but one which has real warmth. Recommended.

Always loved Sweet...Matthew, Rachel, and, indeed, THE Sweet. Never been a big Bangles fan, though. But I fell in love with Susanna the first time I heard her sing Mike Nesmith's "Different Drum". Wonderful. The best version yet. The rest of the record ain't half-bad either. The less obvious list. Some of my personal faves from the era: "Sunday Morning", "Alone Again or", "It's All Over Now Baby Blue". AND they do 'em all justice. Jolly well done! Now, where's Volume 2?

If you enjoyed what Matthew Sweet did on Altered Beast (and Son of Altered Beast) and have ever since found his other material a bit too 'nice', then this is the album for you. On some level it is still 'pop' music, but in a very retro and psychedelic way. The guitar work is amazing - really quite heavy in many places. The two voices are so different but work so well toger (like Campbell & Lanegan). Also the choices of songs are first class. You may not realise how many of these songs you know, and love, until you hear them here. Also the arrangements are very special - these are not simply bland copies of the originals.
The CD cover is great to look at too!
I bought this CD with some trepidation having read some of the other reviews and having found some of Sweet's recent works to be a bit bland - but I LOVE THIS RECORD.
