Mastered Direct-to-DSD From The Original Master Tapes by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound!
1995's 100% Fun is the third leg of Matthew Sweet's Holy Trinity of Power Pop! Produced by Brendan O'Brien, it's a densely-layered production full of grinding guitars, heavy bass lines and BIG drum sounds.
Intervention's 19-track Expanded Edition SACD set is the defining presentation of this great album sonically and in all other respects!
100% Fun is Direct-to-DSD Mastered from the Original Master Tapes by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound. The Master Tapes are 30ips 1/2" analog reels, and the seven bonus tracks are on their own reel. Intervention's cut is big, punchy and dynamic with plenty of producer Brendan O'Brien signature crunch completely intact. Matthew's amazing vocals really shine here amid the layered densities of O'Brien's mix. A big, bold improvement over the 1990s original LP, and so much better than the CD as to make that comparison a total farce.
"... an album that rocks its worries away without ever getting rid of them." -Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music
"...a classic power-pop record full of chiming guitar, powerful hooks and sing-a-long choruses ... a record I keep coming back to year after year ..." -DS Barrett
