Raw powerful concert energy... not rawk extravaganza
(4 out of 5 stars)
"I'll have to say that I totally disagree with the previous negative posting. The fact is, this is primarily a live CD, and really can't be compared to studio compositions.It shows the Sweet band in full raw concert energy...
performing their classic hits to a responsive audience, which is what any good live concert CD should reflect, rather than simply duplicates of studio work performed liveThe extra studio tracks were so-so, but not complete throwaways as the previous posting indicated. So what if these and the cover song "Reach Out (I'll Be There)" aren't perfect gems.The point is that the majority of the CD is live concert tracks, which brings back memories of their familier classics from long ago, performed LIVE in action.Get the album if you are a fan of the Sweet band...
Even if only to bring back memories of those days on desolation boulevard.P.S. I would have given this a 5 star rating, if the extra studio tracks had been replaced with LIVE tracks of their other hits."

"Really not a Sweet effort, founding member and guitarist Andy Scott is the only remaining member here and it shows. The AS Sweet band is pretty tight however you can't knock them for their talents, but what's the point, really. I guess it's still cool that Scott still performs the old songs, I guess I would rather see Scott's name instead of Sweet. "are you ready for the ballroom blitz thing?'" is one of the lamest song intros in history."
