|Only with Steve Priest calling themselves "Sweet" sounds unfair........

|Hard to call a band featuring only one of two surviving original members (RIP Brian & Mick) "Sweet," so this nearly qualifies as a tribute band (a concept I despise) -- but they handle the material well, rumbling through a set of classic Sweet cuts with ease, thanks in large part to founder Steve Priest holding everything together with the original bass lines and character of the band. Mimic-for-hire Joe Retta sounds great, thankfully not trying to impersonate Brian like he's done on demand to conjur up shades of Paul Rodgers and Ronnie Dio elsewhere. The addition of Stevie Stewart on keys gives a slight Deep Purple-ish hue, and while Stuart Smith is no guitar god he apes the Andy Scott parts suitably for the gig and even gives old bubblegum tarts like "Wig Wam Bam" and "Little Willy" a bit of a rocking edge. Of the two dueling incarnations (think Saxon vs. Oliver/Dawson Saxon) THIS Sweet has so far produced the best output that old fans like myself can enjoy in our decrepitude. 85/100
