On Sunshine Lies‘ opener ”Time Machine” Matthew Sweet asks a temporal transport device to ”let me into the future.” Frankly, we’d rather he went back to the past — specifically 1991, when the psychedelically inclined Nebraskan released his classic Girlfriend. Alas, the plodding likes of ”Burn Through Love” and ”Room to Rock” are a long way from Sweet’s finest work, even if the Byrdsy, uh, ”Byrdgirl” proves that not all his best days are behind him. C+
