Sweet - Desolation Boulevard: Remastered (2005) Retail CD
I've got the original version of this album without the bonus tracks, so I won't comment on any of those. The Six Teens is one of my favourite Chinnichap tracks and the opener to this album; slightly less obviously commercial than some of other bubblegum stuff they wrote. The same can be said for Turn it Down which is also featured. However, the bulk of this album is made up of Sweet's own compositions (apart from the cover of The Who's 'My Generation' and the overly drawn out 'Man with the Golden Arm'). Lady Starlight, with Andy Scott on lead vocals, is excellent, as is Solid Gold Brass, Medusamore… and Breakdown. The album also includes the original version of Fox on the Run, which is fine but doesn't include the wicked intro and harmonies of the single and isn't nearly as polished in general.After 30 years, it's hard to know if my appreciation of this album is based more on nostalgia that on the merits of the music. However, I like to think it's the latter, at least to a large extent. The music is very much of the 70s, which can make it sound a little dated, but then The Darkness are doing pretty well with a very similar sound. I'd recommend this album to anyone who likes what the Sweet did with their singles, whether it was the A sides or the B sides. Desolation Boulevard, shows what the band were capable of when left to their own devices. And as the later singles written by the band, such as Action and Fox on the Run proved, they were capable of plenty.
