Compilation producer Mike Ragogna is able to use Sweet's 1989 album, Earth, released on A&M Records, now part of the Universal catalog, and various B-sides recorded around the same time as that album, as an anchor for the collection, occupying ten of the 22 tracks.

Matthew Sweet fans are of the rabidly devoted type. Ask the typical Matthew Sweet fan about their collection of his material, and they're likely to rattle off a bunch of albums, b-sides, demo tracks, one-song radio promo singles, bootlegs, and other rare material. There are hundreds of Matthew Sweet songs that float around the Internet, each collected by his insatiable fans. The funny part of all this is that most of these fans don't particularly care for Matthew Sweet's pre-Girlfriend work. Here's why: The 22-track To Understand features 10 songs total pulled from Sweet's first two albums, including all four singles culled from those discs. But as a "best of" those two albums it falls short, because it includes weaker tracks like "Wind and the Sun" and "Love" instead of far better songs like "The Alcohol Talking" (which comes close to sounding like Sweet's later material) or the frothy pop of "How Cool".
