Third studio album by the acclaimed singer-songwriter. 'Sweet Revenge' comprises a set of rowdy country-rockers that tear along at a reckless speed. The album established cynicism as Prine's dominant voice once and for all. Although he could still crank out a great ballad when he felt like it, from then on his records largely followed a more conventional rock & roll muse, a choice that eventually gained him more mainstream attention.
