We gave it a B+

With his wry melodies and dry humor, Sweet comes off like the unaltered son of Lindsey Buckingham and John Hiatt. And goosed by the prickly fretwork of original alternative guitar hero Richard Lloyd (Television), the mostly live EP Son of Altered Beast proves that pop can be both ”Superdeformed” (as one track is titled) and super-delightful. B+
