MATTHEW SWEET 100% Fun (Zoo) Sweet crafts pop the old-fashioned way: with loud guitars, lovesick-wimp lyrics like ”I’m sick of myself when I look at you,” and choruses that will encourage amateur singers to warble along. 100% Fun trips up when Sweet tries to rock hard. But at least, it’s more streamlined than 1993’s Altered Beast — and at best, it makes you feel as if a good pop hook can solve any crisis. B+ -David Browne
