Sweet (referred to as The Sweet on albums before 1974 and singles before 1975) were a popular 1970s british band.

Although Sweet were largely known for their glam rock image, and several hit singles — many of them being so-called teenage anthems — they also released several albums throughout a ten year career.

The extent of Sweet's domination of the charts in Europe resulted in eight number one singles in Germany, with pop oriented tunes as "Co Co", "Little Willy", and "Wig Wam Bam". Sweet's success continued with more rock oriented tunes, such as "Blockbuster", "Hellraiser", "Ballroom Blitz", "Teenage Rampage", and "Fox On The Run". The group had a world-wide following (clocking up no less than 18 top 20 hit singles) and were most notably popular in the UK, Germany and Australia.

The classic Sweet line-up consisted of vocalist Brian Connolly, drummer Mick Tucker, bassist Steve Priest, and guitarist Andy

SWEET Turn It Down

Single · 1974 · Proto-Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
AtomicCrimsonRush
Turn It Down is a good single rom the album Desolation Boulevard, very strong vocals by Connolly and a raucous riff. The real drawcard foe the fan is the B side which is quite hard to find on CD, Someone Else Will. Sweet loved to play this live with obscene lyrics and it can be heard live on bootlegs and the live side of Strung Up. However this studio version is toned down in the lyrics and better for it. It is a slow grinding song with offensive lyrics which may surprise some who are not familiar with Sweet's sleazier side.

SWEET Give Us A Wink

Album · 1976 · Hard Rock
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
AtomicCrimsonRush
Give Us A Wink is perhaps the heaviest Sweet Album and features wall to wall guitars and very powerful vocals. The melodies are strong and there are some inventive structures in the songs.

It begins with the indispensable Lies In Your Eyes and this is followed up by crunching proto metal on Cockroach with the memorable lyrics "you crawl into my bed like a cockroach" and "you got a mouth like a VC10, but I love you". Keep It In follows with a great lead break and riffing guitars. 4th Of July is the other single and one of my favourites with its cool opening riff and very coarse vocals of Connolly. Action follows and this is quintessential to Sweet, a fantastic melody and very heavy guitars. This version is slightly longer than the single release with an extended intro. Yesterday's Rain is a cool slow bluesy thing with wonderful bassline and guitars. White Mice is a rocker with some strange lyrics "White Mice into your hand, out of my head". Healer is last and goes on too long but there's a nice feel to it, very slow and darker than usual for the glam rockers.

Overall this is as good as it gets for Sweet, among the top three Sweet definitely, and well worth a listen.

SWEET Off The Record

Album · 1977 · Hard Rock
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
AtomicCrimsonRush
Off The Record is a great Sweet album and perhaps the last one that showed thier hard rock side before the disappointing mellow approach on Level Headed and other albums. Connolly is in fine form and the music is energetic and dynamic especially the guitar work of Andy Scott.

The singles on this are Fever Of Love and Lost Angels which have the same formula as Ballroom Blitz and Fox On The Run. Catchy choruses, echoed vocals and strong riffs. The other songs are well worth a listen especially Windy City with the fantastic riff and lead break. There is a heavy side to Sweet shown on Live For Today, and Midnight To Daylight. Side 2 has some throwaways such as the poor disco like Funk It Up, and boring ballad Laura Lee. However Hard Times and She Gimme Lovin' are terrific.

Overall, a great album to get into before the band all but disappeared into obscurity.

Blitzed!

One of the most covered songs of all time, covered by The Damned, Motorhead, Krokus, Tia Carrere (in Wayne's World) and many others - including games such as Guitar Hero and Rock Band - backed with one of the most arrogant, glammy, stompy, most rock and roll tunes ever written, a favourite of all hardcore Sweet fans, used in the BBC "Life On Mars" soundtrack, yet unknown to everyone else.

This pounding follow-up to the demonic Hell Raiser goes even further in Sweet's desperate - and very successful - attempt to prove to the world that they were no simple puppets, but real, hard-rockin' musicians with talent, and the scarily misogynistic B-Side proves that beyond any reasonable doubt - and gives lie to the popular myth that The Sweet were a tamer version of acts such as Queen or Gary Glitter.

These bad boys were dangerous - and perfect role models for their American imitators, Kiss.

The story also goes that this song was written following a performance at The Grand Hall, Kilmarnock, in Scotlant, at which the audience took exception to the glitzy costumes and makeup, and bottled the band off stage.

The lyrics pretty much say this;

And the man in the back is ready to crack As he raises his hands to the sky And the girl in the corner is everyone's mourner She could kill you with a wink of her eye

Oh Yeah! It was electric So frantically hectic And the band started leaving Cause they all stopped breathing

So on to the review of the song...

Nah, man - this is Ballroom Blitz - you already heard it a thousand times!

It's a killer classic, and The Sweet's original is still the best.

Check out Rock 'n' Roll Disgrace though - metal it ain't, but it's still a great tune that would give anything by AC/DC a run for it's money.

Still under the control of Chinn and Chapman, The Sweet continued their new-found run of success in 1973 with this barnstormer - and it's real hard rock/metal crossover stuff with changes a-plenty making a real cut above the run-of-the mill.

Hell Raiser has always been one of my favourite Sweet songs, ever since I saw them performing for the first time on Top of The Pops, at the tender age of 9. This was it - this was the music for me, although I wasn't too sure about the glittery costumes. When I later got into the NWoBHM, and Raven covered this song, I could only kick myself for not thinking of covering it myself - but 6 years is a long time in pop music, and like almost everyone else, I'd forgotten just how great this is.

Listening now, the tingles still run up and down my spine as the guitars chug ferociously, the drums escape the "wompah dompah" Glitter Band style beats momentarily in wild, Keith Moon style episodes, and the music breaks down in exciting, unexpected episodes that remind me of Randy Rhodes in some ways, all topped with Connelly's frighteningly wild vocals and the outrageous Queen-style harmonies.

This is perfection, and in comparison with NWoBHM material, pure heavy metal through and through. The fact that Glam Metal even exists as a genre is enough to verify this statement. There are plenty of similarities here with music that Judas Priest was later to record.

Flip it over, and, true to form, you get the heavier, less chart-friendly material. Burning is a really gruff stomper, half way between Queen, Uriah Heep and Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song". As a song, it's not as strong as Hell Raiser, but as a piece of music it's fascinating - Connolley actually sounds like Freddie Mercury at some points, performing "Great King Rat" - doubtless another influence on this hybrid.

The song jets off into power metal territory for the guitar solo, which despite the inexpert execution goes off all over the place with dive-bombing more commonly associated with metal from a much later period, and other theatrical gimmicks. It all holds together well, and remains intriguiging, espeically with all the theatrical sound effects - spot the talking clock and some manic laughter.

I'm giving Hell Raiser the full 5, even though the flip is more like a 3 and a half.

Hell Raiser is where it all begins - the wild core of metal. Even the title of the song says it all.

QED.

'Give us a Wink' is Sweet's heaviest album so i hope soon you can add that here for review, it is proto metal. Also 'Off the record' is a riff heavy classic. One of my faves is 'Sweet Singles Album' too a terrific compilation. Look forward to seeing them here soon.

Sorry dude, I didn't see your post. I'll get the albums up tomorrow. Nice review of Sweet FA - it's one of my favourite albums, and a huge landmark in metal, IMHO - as big as Sabbath, if not bigger.
