However, time has been kind to Sweet. Both "Sweet Fanny Adams" and the follow-up album "Desolation Boulevard" have been hugely influential on scores of succesful rock bands since - Def Leppard being an obvious example. Sweet's pop grounding coupled fantastic harmonies and powerful riffs show through no better than on this album.
Produced by long-time associate Phil Wainman, "SFA" runs the whole spread of rock's emotions. The opener "Set Me Free" is a rapid-fire rocker that shows off Sweet's vocal strength to its limit. "Heartbreak Today" keeps up the pace with some stunning Andy Scott multi-tracked harmony guitar work.
"No You Don't" one the album's only two Chinn-Chapman songs (the other is "AC/DC") propels the band into progressive rock with synthesisers and cellos (!) coming to the fore, topped off with an emotive Steve Priest vocal. "Rebel Rouser" is a power-chord driven pop-rocker, probably the closest the album has to a huge hit single.
"Sweet FA" is six minutes worth of the most intensive and fluid riffing ever put to tape. Scott's guitar work just goes wild on this track. Brian Connolly puts in a commanding vocal and again their vocal harmonies are absolutely spot-on. "Restless" is fairly laid back although the pounding drums of Mick Tucker carry the song along well. And "Into The Night" is another power-chord fest featuring double-tracked Andy Scott vocals.Read more ›
All the songs have stood the test of time,, the opening track Set Me Free is a cracker and sets the very high standard for the rest of the cd.Heartbreak Today is my favourte,great sounding guitar,No You Don't is written by Chinn/Chapman but is nothing like the hits they wrote for Sweet,Mud and Suzie Quatro to name a few,this song has a real edge to it,Rebal Rouser is a kind of Hellraiser type tune,Peppermint Twist is Sweet having a bit of fun with an old classic,the title track is just over six minutes of pure rock with a blinding guitar solo at the end,Restless nice sounding chores,In To The Night is a darker interesting song and AC-DC is an all out get up and dance track which closes the original LP.
The bonus tracks include 3 B sides which again show that Sweet could not just turn out so called bubble gum records made just for the charts and a few weeks on top of the pops.
All in all I would totaly recommend this cd for not just Sweet fans but for people who like easy to listen to music with a bit of edge in places.
