Sweetness & Light
follows the same blueprint as its predecessor, Melting in the Dark
, finding Steve Wynn
exploring the feedback-drenched, psychedelicized rock that was his signature with the Dream Syndicate
. While it's not as heavy as Melting in the Dark
, Sweetness & Light
has a grander array of sonic textures and a number of well-crafted songs that make it worthwhile for longtime fans.
