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…
A small community is torn apart by a tragic accident which kills most of the town's children. A lawyer visits the victims' parents in order to profit from the tragedy
This is the best of Sweet hits collections which includes all Sweet's hits from the early "Funny Funny" through "Blockbuster" and their huge hits to "Love Is Like Oxygen" which was their last really sizeable hit both in the UK and US. Most of the other collections miss off "Love Is Like Oxygen", and as that's one of their best tracks it is worth tracking down this collection. This CD also includes some of their famous B sides, such as the heavy rock "Burning", B-side to "Hellraiser", and their minor later hits which proved less popular with the public … and you can see why when listening to this album. Its not so much that the later songs were poor, but they sound ordinary compared to the euphoric sounds of "Hellraiser" and "Ballroom Blitz", and even the high-camp of "Wig Wam Bam" and "Little Willy" are much more fun. Undoubtedly a trail-blazing band and great to listen to over 30 years later.
