Sweet hit the peak of their powers on Desolation Boulevard, a wonderfully lightweight collection of fizzy melodies and big, dumb hooks. Essentially, the album consists of three dynamic singles buoyed by a bunch of filler, but those singles – "Ballroom Blitz," "The 6-Teens," and "Fox on the Run" – are addictive slices of bubblegum glam rock…

Sweet hit the peak of their powers on Desolation Boulevard, a wonderfully lightweight collection of fizzy melodies and big, dumb hooks. Essentially, the album consists of three dynamic singles buoyed by a bunch of filler, but those singles – "Ballroom Blitz," "The 6-Teens," and "Fox on the Run" – are addictive slices of bubblegum glam rock. And the filler is ridiculously silly and enjoyable, with "Sweet F.A.," "I Wanna Be Committed," and "No You Don't" sounding like a kind of bizarre prototype for the Ramones' punky bubblegum (only without the irony, of course).

Building on the momentum caused from the runaway success of Desolation Boulevard, Sweet forged ahead and shoved Give Us a Wink out to satisfy their growing legions of rabid fans. Doing it all without the aid of Chinn & Chapman, they truly held their destiny in their own hands for the very first time. "Action" gave them another Top Ten hit, and along with such other notable cuts as "Cockroach" and "Yesterday's Rain," they proved they had the goods. ~Allmusic

If you were to buy only one Sweet CD, this should be the one. This improves upon the UK edition of the album by adding great stuff from their "Sweet F.A." album and getting rid of some fluff (you didn't really need their version of "My Generation," did you?) While you don't get "Love is Like Oxygen," you get a bunch of cool songs written by the band and by Chinn/Chapman. A truly classic rock CD, influenced many star rock bands of 70-90.

Anyone who has been a long-time fan of Sweet knows that they basically had 3 different careers as a band: first as a teeny-bop bubblegum band in the very early 70's who used session musicians, second as a heavyweight Glam/Hard Power-pop hit machine from '73 to '75, and third as an above-average Classic/Hard Rock/Metal band with pop leanings. This album captures the Sweet in all their mid-period hard-Glam glory and is without a doubt their most consistent album and one of the top 3 best albums to ever surface from the original Glamrock scene in early 70's Britain, even if (in this American release) it is a compilation of highlights from the original British release and the previous album (Sweet Fanny Adams).

Although they were often dismissed as a fluffy singles group in their day, Sweet crafted a handful of strong albums in the mid-'70s that sported some surprisingly muscular hard rock. A fine example of this trend is Sweet Fanny Adams. Although this album got little exposure in America on its own, over half of this album's contents ended up on the American edition of Desolation Boulevard…
