The Sweet: Give Us A Wink (Capitol)

Ben Edmonds, Phonograph Record, March 1976

The question with The Sweet has always been one of validity. In England, it was the struggle to become something more than the string of Chinn/Chapman instant teenhits. (It’s a battle that has yet to be conclusively won. Their post-Chinnichap work has really only proved their ability to maintain that teen audience; they’re still regarded with some suspicion by the dispensers of aesthetic validity.)
