Everything I needed as an antidote is there. Released on October 22, 1991, Girlfriend is Sweet’s most commercially and critically successful album to date, The album peaked at on the Billboard 200 album chart and was the Village Voice’s Pazz & Jop critic’s poll best album of 1991  . The original title of the album was to be Nothing Lasts, but Weld objected to the implication. Jim Rondinelli, the engineer on the album, said It’s one of the greatest divorce records ever made.

Album by Matthew Sweet. Looking at the Sun. Winona. Thought I Knew You. You Don't Love Me. I Wanted to Tell You. Don't Go. Your Sweet Voice. Does She Talk? Holy War. Nothing Lasts. Superdeformed (demo). Teenage Female (demo).

After being dropped from A&M Records thanks to Girlfriend's rough edges, Matthew Sweet might hardly have expected great commercial success when another label brought the album out toward the end of 1991. But an alternative-welcome climate at rock radio stations, along with undeniably great songs and aggressive lead-guitar work by ex-Voidoid Robert Quine and former Television member Richard Lloyd, made the disc an eventual gold-selling hit.
