I'm really looking forward to tomorrow's release of Under the Covers, Vol. 1 where the Bangles Susanna Hoffs joins him to recreate some of the best of the sixties. I think what makes Sweet so enjoyable is his obvious fondness for a great pop song with a hook along with his superior production skills. You may not care for how he covers a song, but you have to admire the work and love that goes into it.
You can hear some of the new CD here. Warning: the music comes on immediately...not that you're at work or anything and should be, you know, working.
"And Your Bird Can Sing" is probably the perfect power pop song, in my opinion.
