During a career that stretches back to the mid-'80s, Matthew Sweet has never followed trends, though his landmark 1991 album Girlfriend was responsible for starting oneits bone-dry, caterwauling sonics opening up a wild and picturesque new terrain for restless singer/songwriters to inhabit and explore. Two decades later, Sweet has once again swung for the fencesand connectedwith the boldly experimental yet still deeply personal Modern Art.

Defiantly unorthodox, but often playfully so, Modern Art is a stealth album, embedded with half-hidden hooks lurking in its recesses, just out of focus, waiting to be discovered. Nope, this is not a one-listen album, but a progressive deepening has always characterizes the most memorable longplayers, whose authors rarely put all their cards on the table right away. Not that there aren't some instant grabbers here: "She Walks the Night" captures the Byrds of "Eight Miles High," while "Ladyfingers" stomps along with the authority of T.Rex, and the tortured "My Ass Is Grass" could serve as the belated follow-up to "Sick of Myself," the hit single from Sweet's 1995 LP 100% Fun. At the other extreme are provocative, soul-deep, virtually unprecedented tracks like "Oh, Oldendaze!," "Late Nights With the Power Pop," "Modern Art," "Evil by Design, Goodbye Nature," "At the Screen (With the World Flowing In)" and "Nowhere."
