Acerca de Sweet
Sweet (or the Sweet, depending on who you're talking about K-Tel repackages with) recorded a number of songs that have come to epitomize the style versus substance genius of Glam rock's best bands. From the absurd perfection of "Ballroom Blitz," "Little Willy" and "Fox on the Run" to the overblown, epic psychedelia of "Love is Like Oxygen," the Sweet designed fantastically catchy anthems built on simple rock guitar riffs, then piled on the synthesizers and vocal overdubs until they simply ran out of space. The finished product was clad in a metallic sheen, saturated with compressed distortion and injected with a loopy sense of irreverence. In short, it was absolute sonic candy that rocked.
